Be sure to work with a planner who has done tented weddings before and many times. Hosting a tented wedding at home is like building a venue from scratch. There are so many more widgets to control (and the weather is not one of them!): tent, restroom trailer, lighting, generators, rental equipment and the list goes on… A planner who knows all the elements will be a HUGE asset to your wedding day.
Darbi and David’s Four Seasons Wedding ~ mkPhotography, Philadelphia Wedding Photographer
Darbi and David met at George Washington University through greek life and had their first date at POD in Philadelphia! The super romantic proposal happened in St. Thomas overlooking the water. Darbi chose a classic theme for their wedding at the Four Seasons in Philadelphia with cream, golds, and pinks as their colors.
I called Melissa this morning but don’t have your digits so I wanted to send you a quick thank-you email (even though you will of course get a formal thank you in a few weeks).
Andrew and I just wanted to thank you both so, so much for all of the hard work, time and energy you put into making our wedding day so beautiful. We haven’t really had time to fully process it all yet, but it was the absolute best day of both of our lives and we know that we owe it all to the UE team.
At first it was difficult for us to tell which one of you handled what, and I’m sure that even now, you both did things we’re not even aware of, but Amanda — thank you for handling all of the “paperwork” items leading up to the wedding. Without your organization and attention to detail, I’m sure things would have been a total mess. And the week of the wedding, you were on site in the heat supervising all of the deliveries (and the 300 lb man’s broken leg.. yikes!). And the day of the wedding, I dont even know what specifically you were doing because it was probably everything.. you searched for my purse for probably an hour when it turns out, my brother’s girlfriend had it the entire time (sorry!). You helped me with my train before the first look and just made me feel like you were a friend I’d had for years who I could turn to for anything.
And Jess– where do we even start with you..? Andrew and I were blown away by the floral arrangements and decor. Some things, like the dessert table, we didn’t even get a chance to see, but guests have been giving us non-stop compliments on all of the little details that made the night so personal, and we can’t thank you enough for that. From the first meeting back 15 months ago, you took our ideas and made them into a beautiful reality that we weren’t even sure was possible. The cocktail hour and reception centerpieces were absolutely perfect, and the girls’ bouquets (and mine, too, of course), were even better than what we had pictured. Melissa said you’re usually behind the scenes and don’t get to see the bride/groom, so I am so glad I got a chance to see you at the end of the night to thank you in person. Your work is impeccable and gorgeous– thank you so much.
Andrew and I just slept for 12 hours! Never been more exhausted.. but it’s back to reality tomorrow as Mr. and Mrs. Fallis (ahh!) and we just wanted you both to know how much we appreciate all that you’ve done for us.
I must tell you how wonderful you are!! You made our daughter’s dream come true in every respect!! You somehow managed to get every detail just PERFECT and Cheryl and I were able to really enjoy the wedding completely, without any worry or concern. You are a true professional. I have been in business many years and know firsthand that this is a rare quality. Every vendor did their job just right and seamlessly. Thank you for your recommendations of Big Ric, EventQuip & Starr Catering. With your guidance, they made the party unforgettable. I know that Dana and Andrew respect and appreciate what you did for them this weekend. They could not stop talking about you and your team. They could not get over how all of their requests magically appeared in the right place at the right time. From the table arrangements, flowers, decorating details, lighting and sound, photography and videos-all was just magnificently orchestrated with you as the conductor. You may be perceived by some as a bad-ass but we see right through that. When you were not looking, I saw your face when we were all partying and you were smiling ear to ear, just like a proud parent. I know that you are a kind soul and love what you do and it’s the moments like that, when you see how everyone is truly enjoying the fruits of your labor that makes you keep doing what you do, in spite of the occasional bride-zilla you may come across.
