Ashley and Danny
When Ashley came to me, she and Danny were going to go to the courthouse to get married. You see Danny is an active military member and he was set to be deployed in the next coming months. At that time they did not have any other options.
When I first spoke to Ashley, she said they had settled for a courthouse wedding because they did not have any other options at that time.
Although I could see behind that smile that this was not what she had dreamed of she was willing to sacrifice her wants for what her family needed at that time.
I learned so much about this couple, how her husband is gone for the majority of the year with deployments, he missed the birth of their son and although he wanted nothing more but to be there for his family, duty called and that is his sacrifice.
I met with Ashley and learned so much about there little family. She is an incredible stay at home mom, taking care of their son, keeping up with all home and family duties here while the love of her life was away, serving his country and providing for his family.
I could see through her gorgeous smile when we met for the first time that she had settled for a courthouse wedding although it was not what she had dreamed of.
I then asked her what her dream wedding would look like? It would be something intimate, a bohemian vibe and on the cliffs over looking the ocean.
That is when I told her that Little Miss Party Planner would be providing the wedding ceremony of their dreams at no cost. We both had tears in our eyes.
I couldn't think of a more deserving couple.
We worked together to design something that fit both their styles and would be an everlasting memory.
We would provide absolutely everything from a gorgeously styled ceremony, the permits, officiant, photography, florals, cake, champagne and so much more! It seriously touched my heart and I wanted to give this couple the wedding of their dreams.
After that meeting she called me and told me she had told her best friend and that they were both in tears thinking is this real life?
Well, the day came and it was time for the first look....
She had tears in her eyes, I had tears in my eyes. It was everything and anything they could have dreamed of.
They had a gorgeous ceremony, guest had a great time with a smoke stick send off, a champagne toast a gorgeous photo shoot for them to remember one of the most special days of their life!
Ashley and Danny,
I wish you both a lifetime of happiness.
To all the amazing vendor that came together to make this wedding possible, from the bottom of my heart, we thank you.
