Setting the Scene
Corbin & Steven got engaged last June! You are looking to plan a wedding on December 31, 2021 with around 160-180 guests and are in the middle stages of planning. You will have your wedding in the 19th Floor Ballroom at The Adolphus Hotel (with the ceremony taking place in the midst of the cocktail-style reception) and are looking to plan an elegant, cocktail-style NYE Party reception following. But, most importantly you want something that is not typical to other weddings you have attended and that feels authentically like the two of you and are searching for someone to help translate your dreams into reality.
Your vision of a ceremony that is unexpected and allows your guests to feel extremely comfortable, followed by a reception that brings a memorable and unique vibe (i.e. station meal, a great bar, and unique entertainment) that will allow for all of your guests to be together, mix, mingle, and really bond over this shared experience. It is incredibly important that you find a planner who can assist you in navigating all of the choices that are available, while also helping execute your personal intimate entertaining style.
While you both lean toward an aesthetic that is more traditional with a twist, Corbin and Steven, you really believe in an understated less is more type of atmosphere that truly reflects you as a couple and will allow for a relaxed vibe in an elevated atmosphere. You are both into food as well so ensuring the meal errs on the side of great is a very important aspect of the evening, especially for Steven while you Corbin will be focused on the decor (i.e. understated, elegant, and inviting) and making sure that your reception space feels full yet appropriate to make your event truly intimate.
Planning from a distance (you currently live in Dallas, but are about to move to Virginia Beach), you are interested in looking at all of our planning and design options. You will have a wedding with your closest circle in attendance and are looking for it to be fun and not too stuffy. Corbin and Steven, you are interested in making your wedding as unique as possible for your guests who have potentially seen it all and I stand ready to assist you in that cause.
“In a time of chaos, wonderment & being completely overwhelmed, Julian stepped in and gave us so much ease in our lives. That was a priceless gift.”
