The Ultimate Wedding is Right Around the Corner

It’s officially October, and Stephanie and Michael’s wedding is just around the corner. The excitement is mounting for the happy couple, and for us, as it’s all starting to come together.

The invitations, designed by Julie Gibson at Studio Grace, have been mailed out and guests are beginning to RSVP.  Stephanie and Michael have also chosen a photographer–a major decision and very important part of any wedding day. They have secured the services of Laura Kleinhenz at Docuvitae, a renowned photographer with a knack for capturing the story of the big day. Since photos are the way you’ll remember the day forever, spending time to find the right photographer is crucial, and after researching Laura’s work, the couple knew they’d be able to relax and enjoy their celebration knowing every moment would be captured beautifully.

Music is another element that plays a big role as it sets the emotional tone of both the ceremony and reception. And there are so many choices–big brass, piano man, church organ, rock and roll band…don’t want to say which, but we’ve chosen a couple of really great bands that will really bring the party to life.

As far as the ceremony location, it too has been finalized. Stephanie and Michael will be married in the quaint and historic St. Mark’s Methodist Church of the Vieux Carré (French Quarter).

While most people spend time talking about the dress, the groom’s attire can make a bold statement as well. Michael has chosen a classic and elegant, yet hip and stylish tux from J. Crew. The two of them will be stunning for sure!

We’re still working hard on finalizing the décor–including, of course, choosing our fabulous items from Crate and Barrel! Other items still on the agenda include: welcome gifts for the guests, cake flavors, and more paper items like menus, escort cards and programs. We will keep you updated as all the final pieces fall into place.
