Danielle and Jason
October 3, 2009
Zionsville, Indiana

From the first time Danielle and I met we hit it off. I loved her ideas about the weddings, and she loved mine too. Jason proposed to Danielle in Lincoln Park in Zionsville, so naturally that's where the ceremony was held as well. Danielle wanted to keep everything local so ALL of her wedding vendors except for me were from Zionsville. This was an outdoor ceremony, so of course I kept my eye on the weather all day. It was chilly, but the rain held off! Danielle and her dad arrived to the ceremony on a horse drawn carriage. The site looked great it had just enough decor. During the ceremony it did drizzle a little but I thought it added to the atmosphere. Once Jason and Danielle was pronounced man and wife all the guests walked with them down Main Street to Nancy Noel's Sanctuary where the reception was held. The cocktail hour was planned to be outside on the porch but because of the chilly weather, we invited guests inside to warm up. The decor at the Sanctuary followed the theme from the ceremony. The place cards were on little park benches so CUTE! The centerpieces were different on every table which was really fun. Instead of a candy bar we did a nut bar, guests loved it. And instead of a champagne toast we surprised guests and did a hot spiked apple cider toast. Speaking of surprises during the parents welcome speech Danielle's mom and dad surprised her with a painting from Nancy Noel. It was Danielle's favorite from the gallery! Dinner was fantastic! We served a rustic soup and a trio of chicken, sausage and lamb with potatoes and veggies. For dessert everyone was served an individual chocolate pastry. On each table we added pumpkins with chocolate inside; I couldn't believe how real the pumpkins looked. Our DJ, which was Danielle's brother-in-law rocked it. Everyone was up dancing all night long. It was a GREAT party! I was so happy that I was apart of this wedding. Thank you Danielle and Jason!

Darcie...Thank you so much for being a part of Danielle and Jason's amazing wedding. It could not have been more perfect. Yes, it was cold and it did sprinkle a bit (good luck, you know) But we thought it was just perfect. You and your staff made it so Dan and I could really enjoy the beautiful wedding of our third daughter. We had no worries. You did an amazing job, and worth every penny. Thank you for all your fantastic ideas and all your hard work. We know it would not have been the same without you. Daughter #4 is up next! (it will be a while!!!) We will be calling you again. Thank you so much again...Leanna (mother of the bride)
