What (or who) helped you most in your planning process and/or on your wedding day?
Choosing to have a wedding planner was an absolutely invaluable decision. My wedding planner, Nicole Kaney, was instrumental when it came to planning our wedding celebration. Aside from her expertise, her calm and focused attitude always put my mind at ease. Being personally organized was the one thing that helped me the most when it came to keeping all of my tasks and deadlines in order. Excel spreadsheets became my best friend!
What was the most important thing to you when deciding who to work with for your wedding?
I wanted to work with someone who shared my sense of style and personality. Having experience in working at my venue was important to me as well. It was crucial that my wedding planner would be the type of person who ensured that on the wedding day the only thing I would need to worry about was enjoying myself. And she was all of those and more!
What was your inspiration for your wedding details and/or design?
My venue (The Ringling Estate) was the biggest inspiration for my wedding design. It is such an overwhelming stunning venue that I knew I wanted a very classic look. I chose black and white as my colors with touches of blush pink to highlight the beautiful pink marble of the buildings. The outcome was a very modern and romantic feel. It was breathtaking.
What was your favorite thing about your wedding?
The most cherished memory of my wedding was seeing everyone enjoying themselves and having a blast. I knew all the work we had put in was worth it.
