Tricia and Niece Leila

One of my best-loved things about the “BIG” wedding is the calm before the guests arrive.  The formal shots are out of the way and everyone is kicking back.  I call this  “back stage cuddle time” when everyone just gets to take a deep breath and say and do as they wish.  This was a precious moment when Auntie is hugging her darling niece with Bride Tricia’s eyes welling with tears.  So rich.  Leila was our “Junior Bridesmaid” and felt so honored to be able to stand up front with the EIGHT other women in the Bridal Party!  Behind them you can see the classic stained glass dome at the Arctic Club Hotel in all of its glory.  The perfect setting for Tricia and Drew’s fabulous wedding day.  Katy Griffiths from Vows was our fearless leader, doing her usual stunning job! I felt so honored to be a part of it.

Pre-honeymoon note from Tricia and Drew (so sweet!)...Of course you will be receiving a more formal ‘thank you’ from us, but we truly can’t express how much we appreciate your compassion, honesty, and dedication you have given us through out this process. We received so many compliments after our wedding on our ceremony and particularly your words and readings! You made our happiest day so special, and we are so greatful!


Tricia and Drew

When I first met them in January of 2011, June of 2012 seemed like a long way away.  So here we are at our planning meeting for their upcoming wedding wondering where the time has gone!  The Arctic Club will our venue under Katy Griffiths (Vows Event Planning) capable guidance.  The details are vast and the theme is FUN!  Drew and Tricia are ecstatic and just can’t wait.  Me too!
