Barbara and Lisa were married at their home in New Lebanon on June 13, 2015. Yes that says 2015. (Sorry everyone but I have been busy and it took me a bit to get their photos to post here!) But I can’t let this beautiful wedding go by and not share it all with you! So please excuse the fact that this is up a year later and just eat up all the yumminess of this special day.
Barbara and Lisa found me online a year before their wedding date and were looking to use my full planning and coordination package. From the very beginning I was just hooked on these two, and was so excited to go down the planning journey with them! They live in NYC but have a home in quiet New Lebanon and we all agreed it was the perfect place for them to say ‘I Do’. You see these two had been together for 17 years so tying the knot was a big deal for them! What better place to do that than their home in the presence of their closest friends.
Planning this wedding was a fun experience for me. Lisa is a foodie with a specific vision and a wonderfully caring but straight forward manner. Barbara wanted to make sure everyone had fun but she is the practical one who balances Lisa’s more creatively adventurous side. All of the plans were mapped out with precision and it all came together so beautifully the day of the event. To them it was all about sharing and celebrating with the people who are the closest in their lives. They asked a dear friend to perform the ceremony and they included their daughter Zoe and their fur baby Lucy in the most important parts of the festivities. You can tell from these photos that the weather was gorgeous and that Barbara and Lisa really enjoyed their day – their happiness that day was infectious!
The reason people hire me is because I carefully craft the vendor teams for my weddings. With Barbara and Lisa we booked Kim Klopstock’s Lily and the Rose for catering, rented a beautiful sail cloth tent and farm tables from Rain or Shine, hired the always fun Bill’s Toupee Band for entertainment, and sourced the flowers from the ever talented Kathy Rohlfs at Chatham Flowers. Rounding out the vendor team was the always fun Lauren and Jeremy from LaRose Media on video, equally fun Jen and Chris from True Grace for hair and makeup, design extraordinaire Jenny Shea who created all the custom made and hand drawn stationery, and Premiere Transportation which provided guest shuttles. All of these wedding photos were taken by Kretschmann Studio.
Barbara and Lisa were such a joy to work with, and getting to see Zoe and Lucy during planning appointments was always a treat for me! We built a gorgeous event – as a wedding planner it doesn’t get much better than this! Thank you Lisa and Barbara for choosing me as your planner and welcome me into your family for your special day!!
