One of our favorite couples/families of all time!

We absolutely adored this bride & her mom. We worked with them for 12 months, planning their wedding

We met Meghan & her mom, Sandra at our office as they were looking for a wedding planner to help them with budget, design, vendors & all the little details for their August wedding

We had an “Initial Meeting” to discuss their wedding, what the needed from a wedding planner & to see if we were a good match for each other

One week later we got the call…….we were hired!!

Megan had many pictures of what she wanted for her wedding. Our job was to take those pictures & make them happen, within budget & without stress

We provided Full Planning, which includes Wedding Day Management & all Wedding Flowers

Here is Meghan & Kevin’s Special Day at Royal Ashburn Golf Club

Their beautiful wedding was featured on The Wedding Opera’s Blog!!

Floral arrangements for the ceremony

We lined the aisle with rose petals & white lanterns

It was a hot day & Meghan & Kevin wanted their guests to be refreshed during the ceremony so we made this lovely water station w/flavoured water complete with gorgeous hydrangeas, eryngium & hanging amaranthus

By the time we got the bride down the aisle, the water station was dry….I guess the guests enjoyed it!

gorgeous girls!

Mr & Mrs!

It was sad to say good-bye to this sweet couple & their families but we will always remember them

Wishing them both a lifetime of love & happiness!

The 14 Stories Gay Wedding Institute is the nation’s first same-sex wedding research & think tank. The GWI was founded in 2009 by 14 Stories founder Bernadette Smith, who leads workshops for wedding professionals around the U.S. & Canada on the nuances of same-sex weddings.

I was amazed at how much I learned from taking this course. I am so happy that I made the decision to become a “Gay Certified” wedding vendor. I truly believe in equal rights & that everyone should have the right to marry. That being said, it would be my honor to work with gay/lesbian couples, helping them plan their dream wedding
