Your the Apple of my Eye

22 Jan

Pulling together photo shoots is one of the great perks of being a designer and planner. I love coming together with my favorite vendors to create visual eye candy that will hopefully inspire clients and future wedding couples. We worked with a stellar team to produce a fall Apple inspired shoot which has graced the pages of Virginia Bride Magazine, Virginia Wedding Locations Magazine, United with Love, and Destination I Do Blog.

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!
