Kathleen & Kevin's Wedding Day 04.20.12

Kathleen and Kevin are a great couple! We met Kathleen over a year ago when she hired us to be her wedding planners. She had so many great ideas especially when it came to their cherry blossom wishing tree to their snazzy cigar bar table. The decor, food, and location were definitely great choices in pleasing all of the international guests! 
The day started off sunny, warm, with a light breeze. We knew it was going to be a jam packed wedding day so we had to bring on one of our trusty assistants! She was great, and it's always better to have an extra set of hands! We arrived Top of the Town (Arlington, VA) just as a prior event was just ending. At 4:00pm on the dot, we knew it was crunch time. This is when the time that we put on our running shoes, and are literally running around trying to get everything done before the ceremony starts! And all of the running around was worth it! 
Catering was done by fabulous Main Event Catering. We love them and their food. Andrea was so great to work with and her staff was really on top of everything and very helpful! I just have to mention the tea that Main Event served throughout the night. It was magical and delicious. It was a peach iced tea that is directly imported from Italy and my oh my was it delicious. I'm pretty sure I had about a whole bottle of it to myself!
Their photographers and florists were all friends, which was so helpful. It definitely makes the event that much more special when you know you really trust the people that are working to make your dream day come to life.
In the end, no matter how crazy or how busy a wedding day is for us, all that is important to us is the bride and groom. If they are happy, we are happy! Kathleen & Kevin were both very happy, and we couldn't have asked for a better couple to work with. 

Kathleen & Kevin, all the best to you both! Here are some pictures that I took with my trusty IPhone - lol - We're still in the process of getting the professional pics. But enjoy anyways! It is just a sneak peek of how the beautiful night went...
