Sally and Bryan

Sally and Bryan
June 6, 2009

As a wedding planner we work a lot of Saturdays, It’s just part of the job. This Saturday, June 6th was not only Sally and Bryan’s wedding day it was also my daughter’s 10th birthday. When the Dahm’s came into my office, I realized their wedding date and had to make a decision as to what to do. Needless to say, I really knew this would be the “wedding of the season” so I had to take this one on. Those decisions in life are NOT easy, but the show must go on and a big bash is planned for this upcoming weekend for Kate.
We had a great team with Julie on the flowers, Hether Miles on photography, Thomas Catering, Scottish Rite Cathedral, Carey for transportation, Evans Audio Video for lighting,Encore Entertainment for the cocktail hour, and the Flying Toasters for the main band. Thank you to all of you who made this event a special one. They loved it.
CATHOLIC 3:30 ceremony time
I couldn’t believe it when Sally told me that St. Mary’s was going to allow her and Bryan to get married at 3:30 with a full mass. Believe it or not, 290 guests made it through communion just in time for the 5:00 mass. WOW, that was a miracle. David Mantell filled the church with his amazing Ava Maria. Check out the video on my facebook. (FACEBOOK Tonya J. Shadoan)
Laurenne and I danced together amongst the guests who couldn’t get enough of the FLYING TOASTERS. They were absolutely amazing, playing every great song. It was one of those nights where you would say, “I love this song”. There seriously was never a moment where there were less than 50 people on the dance floor. In all my years, I’ve never seen a crowd who loved to dance like this crowd. We had to break down 3 guests tables throughout the night, so the guests had a bigger dance floor.
I had to order 290 gold chiavari chairs at the last minute, due to a mixed up linen order. Did I mention A Classic had them there in under 1 hour?
Got home at 2:22 AM to hit the hay after my husband came to help Laurenne and I break down. WINE
Had the best Cabernet (1 glass) in my life, what was the name of that Renee?
Here’s a quote I received today via email:
Ms. Marg Dahm, Mother of the Bride
“What a job you did! You made my life easy and you were a joy to work with. If you ever need a referral, don't hesitate to ask. You're right...that was one partying crowd!”
Wedding Love and Hugs,
PS. Knock ‘em dead this weekend Darcie, your turn………..

I echo Sally’s sentiments. You definitely were a major part, if not THE part, of making this entire 11 month process a success. Saturday was awesome and if there were any hiccups along the way, we never knew of them b/c you handled everything so quickly and professionally. I’m sorry that you missed your daughter’s birthday and were breaking down tables at midnight. Again, thank you so much and if there is ever anything we can do for you, your business, or family, please don’t hesitate to reach out.
