Today, I'd like to take you some of the planning process.
After interviewing 4 florists and receiving bids from each, Shannon selected Abby with Stems Floral Design. Below are pictures of the bride, one of her bridesmaids, and the mother of the bride seeing a mock-up table. (Fairy Godmother, Skylar, and Event Designer, Ken Sharples, are in the background looking on.)
Event designer, Ken Sharples, is standing with them and discussing tweaks and possible changes.
The bride stands in awe of the table arrangement.
Summer Pruett of Stardust Pastry put together some sample items for the candy and dessert bar. Below is white chocolate mousse with blueberries.
Homemade marshmallows, macaroons, and specialty candy.
These pictures are from the Driskill tasting. The Driskill's food is truly amazing. These were some of the options given to the family for the "big day." The family is then allowed to make changes - large or small - to their selected items. Often, this is one of the more important items to couples.
Tastings are one of my favorite vendor meetings to attend! It allows us to get to know the family and spend some time seeing them interact. We learn about their likes and dislikes, and it's always FUN!
