The one think I hate to see is a stressed out, miserable "wishing I eloped" bride weeks before her wedding. ugh!
There is no magic formula, there IS a certain amount of stress that comes along with planning an event for a couple of hundred people on top of the fact that you are emotionally challenged with all of the excitement and nerves that come with marrying your sweetheart.
Enter Kelly. I was the lucky photographer who photographed Kelly and Dimitri's wedding last summer at the Inn at West Settlement In Roxbury, NY. (http://amberjphoto.com/2013/09/11/the-seriously-amazing-kelly-and-dimitri-a-roxbury-ny-wedding/) Something immediately stood out with Kelly. She was laid back, organized and her wedding details were remarkably unique. Her bohemian style catered to the couples' creative and artistic side without straying from their individuality for the sake of pulling off a great wedding.
Kelly fell in love with planning her wedding and after a little encouragement is offering her planning services to brides.
That's right, a wedding planner in the making and may I say, a crazy good one at that.
I am fully behind brides finding someone to take the reigns of their wedding day or at least share them. Honestly, how many of us are truly equipped to plan a party for an average of 150 people, complete with invitations, catering, music, place settings, favors, photographers, travel accommodations and the list goes on and on.
My point is this: your wedding day has one million details to adhere to and sometimes the focus of the getting married part starts to blur. I love the idea of a bride being able to go out for a cup of coffee with her maid of honor while her wedding planner is addressing and mailing invitations, browsing stores for ideas and recommending florists. I breathe lighter even thinking about it!
Kelly, though she is stationed in Manhattan is fully equipped to take care of your upstate NY wedding. Just give her a try. You will see.
Additionally, I believe in her SO much that the first bride to contact me about her services, gets her for free.
