"After my daughter became engaged, we dove headfirst into planning her November wedding. Blaire had LOTS of good ideas and had researched each component of the wedding with meticulous detail. But, oh my, there were so many options and so many choices to be made! It was overwhelming.
When Blaire first mentioned the idea of having a wedding planner/coordinator, I was adamantly against it; I felt she and I could handle the ceremony and reception with ease. HA! When we began discussing the day before the wedding and the actual wedding day, I became overwhelmed with the amount of detail and coordination that was required. I was also painfully aware of my lack of training or expertise in any of the arenas in which we had been thrust. And, to my horror, the “to do” list was growing rapidly and, seemingly, exponentially.
When Blaire and I began talking about “the day of” in detail, I realized there was no way that I could be there for my daughter and get everything done for the ceremony and reception. At that point we asked Carly to let us know what she could do for us. OMG (I normally don’t use text lingo :]) – I was astounded at what Carly could and would do for us AND at the price she quoted ! It was seemingly too good to be true. However, true it was!
We had met Carly at the Bride’s Boutique when we purchased Blaire’s gown. She was so professional and so very knowledgeable. After about a 20 minute conversation, my daughter and I decided we must hire her. That was a GREAT decision! She was with Blaire and me every step of the way, and provided guidance. That is the KEY word – guidance. She didn’t tell us WHAT to do, but actually guided us into making our vision a reality. Without her services I know the ceremony and reception would not have moved forward as beautifully as they did. It was an absolutely wonderful day."

Thank you so much for all your hard work in making our wedding as perfect as we hoped it would be. Your steady responsiveness to everyone of our questions and concerns made the entire process worry free.
Thanks again, Amy and Steve Hill
Here are a few images of Steve and Amy's BIG day. I hope you enjoy these beautiful images by Joan of Art Photography.
Steve (the groom) caught this Salmon in Alaska and it was one of the featured hors d'oeuvres.
Carrie @ Cakes by Carrie made a delicious cake that reflected the couples vision perfectly.
Once again I was the designated cake cutter. Cutting cakes is not my strong point. Lets just say I am very generous.
I was in charge of decorating all the reception tables, something simple and no fru fru, was the guidelines given...ha ha.
All the family and friends that joined them for their special day.

I am so glad that I came in The Bride’s Boutique on that cold day in January!! I never imagined that January day that I would find my dress, my girl’s dresses, a wedding coordinator but more importantly a great friend! You made sure that our wedding day perfect. It was so much better than we could have ever imagined, and I do not know what I would have done without you there helping me every step of the way, from picking out my dress and all the accessories to go with it ,all the wedding party’s attire, decorating for the reception, lacing my dress up the day of the wedding, and even calling to confirm our hotel reservations for after the wedding because I couldn’t remember where I made them. I remember a weekend that Ty and I had been at the mall for hours and he was so upset that we could not find anything for his guys to wear in the wedding, so I finally just said “let’s go see Carly” and sure enough I think it took a total of 8 minutes for you to have something picked out, showing it to us and of course we loved it! Thanks for all the reassurance about my dress toward the end because you told me I would love it after it was altered, and I did! I couldn’t have picked a more perfect dress. Having you as our coordinator was the best decision we made about our wedding! You were there to save the day more than once on May 30th and we could never thank you enough for all the time and effort you put into making our wedding day so beautiful and perfect. I miss you!!!
