Wedding: Michael and Ashley Sweet

Back in May, I had the privilege of coordinating Michael and Ashley Sweet’s wedding.  For the Sweets, I was their day of coordinator, so I wasn’t involved with the planning, just the executing.  Rehearsal went nice and smooth and so did their wedding day.  They were a great couple to work with and made my job a breeze.  Every wedding is different; they bring new challenges and tasks each time, and that is why I love my job.

I thought it would be fun today to show you a few “behind the scene” details I did for this wedding.

I always put on the boutonnieres and corsages.  I’ve put on hundreds at this point and I’m happy to say, I haven’t stuck anyone yet.  Side note; I really like the florists who labels each one.  It’s a small gesture, but one that make things a bit faster for the coordinator.  

Assisted in hanging these Chinese lanterns on stage.  

Collaborated with the sound guy to hide the mic in the decorative arch.  

Arranged the unity candle table.

Found the bride crackers when she was feeling slightly on the over whelemed side and needed something to calm her stomach.

Made sure flowers stayed nice and hidrated after pictures.  It’s also important to dry the stems off before you hand them back to the girls.  Wet spots on the dresses do not look very good on stage.

Held onto the pillow and flower girl baskets until I sent them down the aisle.  There is no telling where the children will leave these items if you let them roam around.  

After I sent everyone down the aisle I set up in the tech loft and watched a beautiful couple say “I do”.  Love is inspiring and that is why all these details are so worth the time.

Congratulation Ashley and Michael.
