Hannah and Chad’s wedding at The Ivy Place was simply perfect. Even though it rained during the reception there was not one single moment that was not just beautiful.
I love asking my brides to give advice to other brides and/or to tell us what they loved about their wedding.
From Hannah: “A special thanks to my mom for all of her help and hard work throughout the planning and execution of the wedding. We spent endless hours throughout the engagement year on the wedding trying to make everything perfect. She helped me through all the craziness and stress with planning my one and only special wedding day. This wedding wouldn’t have been possible without her. A primarily do it yourself wedding is hard work that is for sure. There were countless days and nights of crafting and do it yourself projects.
She has always had an eye for greenery and did an incredible job with all the floral arrangements and majority of wedding flowers for the wedding. I know that wasn’t easy for her not to mention everything else she did running around to make sure the day of was just perfect for us. With all of the last minute running around by everyone, I have to say it turned out to be a complete success with the theme of southern elegance.
In the end all the planning and stressing an entire year was totally worth it. A special thanks to my mom I love you and appreciate all that you have done for me and will continue to do for both me and Chad! You are truly the best mom in the world! Our wedding day was just perfect! Chad and I love you very much!”
Isn’t that the sweetest note! Thanks Hannha for sharing with us!
