During the last month before the wedding, things really started to pick up, and both Kate and Tommie were there by our sides, ready to help in any way (and often helping us before we even knew we would need it!). Both Kate and Tommie even offered to meet us one additional time to help me get a few last minute details organized. Tommie was very resourceful and helped us to come up with solutions for a few tricky “day of” problems. Kate worked especially hard during the days leading up to the wedding to make sure the day of schedule was perfect. Kate even did some last minute vendor coordinating for me that really removed a lot of stress and anxiety.
On our wedding day, both Kate and Tommie were invaluable. I felt so relieved to have them by my side: helping to finish up last minute decorations, organizing flowers, having last minute chats with vendors so I could just enjoy getting ready with my bridal party. They were so helpful with getting everyone lined up for the ceremony and with keeping family pictures moving along. Everything was going smoothly until the rain decided to show up to our al fresco dinner under the trees. Kate and Tommie whipped right into action and made all the plans necessary to get all our guests AND tables moved inside the barn between salads and entrees. I can’t imagine the “behind the scenes” stress they might have been feeling, because they handled everything so professionally. I truly believe their smiles and positive attitudes spread to everyone else, because the next thing I saw was all of our 100 wedding guests laughing and carrying tables into a barn, trying to beat the rain. I was so touched at that moment, and I am so grateful that we had Kate and Tommie to navigate that little hiccup.
That night, Kate took ALL our decorations (seriously! She packed up everything from our venue so that my husband and I could continue celebrating with our friends and family) and put them in our hotel for us. But Kate went one step above and beyond and decorated our room with all our flowers and tea lights. It was a beautiful surprise, and we felt so special!
Ultimately, having Kate and Tommie meant that my husband and I got to fully enjoy our wedding day with all our friends and family. This was tremendously important for both of us, and the peace of mind and assistance they provided for us was truly invaluable. They were there for us every step of the way, and we will always be grateful! Thank you Shannon, Tommie, and Kate!!”
