Real Wedding: A lesson Learned

11 Jul

Last year, Robert’s & Co. Events learned a valuable lesson that even planners have moments in life that can threaten to get in the way of even the most well laid plans. As I drove to the church for the rehearsal on the friday night before this wedding last year, I received a devastating call that my mother had had a massive stroke and was being rushed to the hospital in Florida. At Roberts & Co. we have protocols in place that keep a backup in case something like this happens but in the case of this wedding, I did not feel comfortable leaving our clients behind just moments before their rehearsal and VERY large wedding. We worked out a 5 am flight for Sunday morning after talking with doctors and getting the go ahead that if we stayed for the wedding my mom would be ok until Sunday.  We worked through the day of the wedding with the support and help of an amazing vendor team who understood I needed moral support, and kept a smile on my face for our clients and their parents. They were never the wiser (until now! ha!), and we had a very successful and amazing wedding.

The moral of this story is that you should build a team around you that you trust, not only your planner but the caterer, florist, photographer, ect. Your vendors should support each other, be team players, and always put the best interest of the wedding first. Without such a great team that Molly and Mike chose, that day in limbo before I could get to my mother could have been so much worse and so much harder for everyone.

Mike and Molly were such a joy to work with from the beginning. They always came to meetings with smiles and full of love which is so refreshing when planning can be stressful on so many couples. They wanted a vibrant affair at Newton White Mansion with great food, music, and a party that people would not stop talking about. I can do nothing but rave about most of our vendors (not only for the above reason, but because they all rock!) Big thank you to Vesic Photography for the beautiful photos and to Lisa at Petals and Promises for the most beautiful Peonies I have ever seen. They were so vibrantly red and lush!

Real Wedding: Rani and Loc

13 Jun

Last summer we had the pleasure of working with Rani and Loc for their wedding at Top of the Town. They chose to hold their ceremony at the Netherlands Carillon overlooking the amazing scenic views of DC. They were such a joy to work with and the photos from Tracy Timmester were beautiful!

Some really great details about their wedding was that they chose to infuse both of their cultures together as well as their love for DC. She changed into a beautiful Sari at the reception with gorgeous gold accessories. Guests found their seats on Chocolate coins with their names and table numbers imprinted on each. The absolute best treat was the ice cream cart we had positioned for guests for the walk from the ceremony to the reception venue. Enjoy their beautiful day!

Real Wedding: Bonnie and Tom

16 Jan

Bonnie and Tom are two cool clients, and not often do we get such great down to earth couples that just go with the flow and make everything so hip and unassuming. They wanted a wedding that was untraditional, funky, and really a reflection of the two of them. We opted for a neon and gold indian-dutch infusion wedding at L2 club and lounge. They had a small group of friends for an intimate ceremony followed by a reception catered by Kafe Leopold and music all night long. The bride walked down the gold confetti aisle in a beautiful red Sari and exchanged vows and garlands with her new husband. Guests were welcomed to the wedding with a polaroid guest book and a bollywood accessory station of bindi’s, bangles, and glitzy jewels. I hope you love the awesomeness of the wedding as much as I did!
