Alli and James are getting married this Sunday at the Watermark in Asbury Park, NJ. and I am totally stoked! They are an awesome couple! Alli contacted me a few months ago to help with her Day-of wedding planning and I knew right away that I was going to have a blast helping her arrange all her last minute details. She is such a fun bride! A great sense of humor NEVER hurts! Her first task for me: design a donuts display for 200 donuts. Really!?! You had me at donuts. Two hundred donuts from Purple Glaze in Asbury Park, NJ. Some of the flavors: Peanut Butter and Jelly, Maple Syrup and Bacon, uhhhh… How will I get them out with out sampling? It’s a challenge I’m willing to accept…and willing to lose.
I got right to work. With a small budget, Alli wanted a way to creatively display the donuts. I started sketching designs and shopping to price out display pieces. I decided that part of the display design would depend on the table the venue had for the display to rest on. So, I called Russell at The Watermark. Would you believe they already had number of items that would all work together to create the perfect dessert display!?! Just like that, I saved Alli’s donut display budget and allowed her to put the money towards something else! Gotta love saving money!
This week has been a busy one, but I love helping relieve all the pre-wedding stress by taking on the job of tying up loose ends. I’ve spent this week working with all of Alli’s vendors to create a seamless timeline that will ensure that Sunday is smooth and stress free for our bride and groom and their families.
Alli and James are going to have the awesome wedding of their dreams on Sunday! And how do I know? Because they are an awesome couple! Their vendors are awesome! Their venue is awesome! What an awesome team Alli and James have put together! They are going to have an awesome wedding weekend! Sunday is gonna be…(yup, you got it…) awesome! #teamawesome
