Lauren and Lucas Bell

When Lauren contacted us to help with wedding planning for her October 21st wedding at Camp Lucy, we hit it off immediately! Lauren and Lucas are the epitome of high school sweethearts. Growing up together in San Angelo, Texas, they had been friends for life. Little did they know, they were also soulmates!

Seeing the love that Lauren and Lucas have for each other was just a preview of the love that I witnessed on their wedding day! Over 250 people attended their wedding on the most beautiful Sunday in October. The weather was unbelievably perfect and guests came from near and far to celebrate the love of such an amazing couple and family!

Working with our vendor dream team was just icing on top of the cake! Drinks were flowing as guests lined up to take pictures with the beer burrows {you can’t have a wedding in Texas without Donkey’s that serve beer to your guests} and the dance floor was packed the whole time with live music from Matchmaker Band!

The day was simply magical. Check out the pictures to see for yourself! {warning, you’ll be jealous you weren’t there!!}

Wouldn't it be cheaper for  builders to replace some walls with all windows-why don't they?  Much better.

Wedding Party Dance/Flash Mob

What do you want your guest to remember on your special day?  It could be anywhere from the love that is shown to a memorable unscripted moment.  Those details that sometimes are not scripted are the ones that last a lifetime.

Well, how about the ones that are scripted, and you may or may not be involved.  Yes we’re talking about the Flash Mob craze!  You can hop over to YouTube and find any number of wedding moments that made their way onto YouTube.  But is that your goal?  Are you the guest that can rally the troops to surprise the guest of honor?  Are you the bride or groom that can coordinate and keep it hush-hush?  Even at a Mitzvah, can you and your friends surprise the crowd?

OK, so we have all seen the videos on YouTube with synchronized dancing by the groomsmen (and this is definitely memorable!!), or the Bride and her Dad in a choreographed dance, or a Flash Mob by your guest.

Well, would you be daring enough for a Flash Mob Wedding?  This is truly a unique and creative twist on a wedding ceremony.
