After a year of planning Brenna and Craig tied the knot on July 14, 2012 at the Crowne Plaza Union Station Grand Hall. With over 400 guests attending the event I knew it was a must to be ready for anything! I have developed a relationship with Brenna and her family over the last year planning for multiple surprises for this wonderful day! It all began with coordinating 9 different musical selections and musicians with her grand entrance of 3 trumpeters announcing the bride’s entrance to the ceremony! The guests were awed by Brenna’s unique and sassy dress and bling that completed her look. After they tied the knot, guest were greeted by 3 magicians, an open bar, and food galore! The nanny room gobbled up the children to entertain them so the parents could enjoy themselves throughout the evening. Melody from Carpenter Photography and Troy from MovieTyme Productions captured all of the great moments, emotion and laughter. Katie from the Crowne Plaza and her wonderful staff transformed the ceremony into a glitz and glam magical fairy tale reception. The bride cried when she saw her room and gasped at the wonderful creations Tiffany, from Circle City Designers, created. The many surprises every half hour; like the photobooth, the candy bar, the lottery tickets, the magicians, interactive dessert station, YMCA debut by the groomsmen, and many more kept my assistant and I on our toes every waking moment. Finally, as the clock struck midnight, the horse and carriage swept away the newlyweds as they began their new life together. A night to remember!

XOXO Tonya

Jackie & Gareth
June 3,2012
Omni Hotel

Jackie and Gareth's wedding was AMAZING!!!!  It was filled with many surprises and details that made it all their own.  The ceremony setting was quite unique all its own.  But when Jackie surprised Gareth as she walked down the aisle to live music the look on his face was priceless.  The actual wedding ceremony was filled with laughter, tears and joy.  Their wedding officiate was amazing.  The surprises didn't stop at the ceremony.  During the reception, Gareth's dad sabored a bottle of champagne for the toasts.  It was a FABULOUS evening.  For the decor, we included Jackie's favorite- zebra print.  Along with a beautiful teal blue and pink.  The linens were the perfect combination of fun and elegant.  We also included some of Gareth's favorite things too like cherry blossoms.  I loved working with both them as well as Jackie's mom!!!
A big thanks to all involved that made Jackie and Gareth's day a huge success.  Maxi from Omni, Erin Hession Photography, Mike Campbell of Sound Advice, Tiffany of Circle City Designers, Classic Cakes of Carmel, Jill from West Wood Paper, Karen Hall and Co. and Marta from Waiting to be Told
