EVENT PLANNING 101: When planning an event, particularly a wedding, make it personal!
It couldn’t have been a more gorgeous Sunday morning.
The leaves had turned in Millcreek Canyon, matching the Autumn wedding colors, orange and green. A vocalist sang Marry Me as the Bride walked down the aisle with her dad as he choked back tears. The ceremony was conducted by a friend of the couple, which made it very personal.
Personalization will create lifelong memories!
The wedding continued with a fun-filled reception that included dancing, wine, and an impromptu Gangnam dance performance by the Bride and her friend.
While the dance was VERY memorable, another highlight was the toasts. Don’t underestimate the ability of teenagers to make moving, dynamic speeches. The Bride’s 17-year-old sister and the Groom’s 13-year-old son stole the show with their toasts, one of which included the line, “I was surprised when my dad asked me to be his best man but then I realized he probably did it because I know nothing about the first 40 years of his life.” Both teenagers had the guests laughing and crying.
Another special touch: in lieu of wedding favors, the Bride and Groom made a donation to the Huntsman Cancer Institute. It was their way of honoring the Groom’s late sister. Each guest received a card at their table setting telling them about the special gift.
Congratulations to Tom and Nicole – two people that I believe will be together forever.
