10.1.11 | trisha + kevin

WARNING:  this post will be longer than usual + full of lots and lots and lots of phenomenal photographs.

this blog post has quite a bit of meaning and emotion behind it.  my sister was married this past october, and this is her wedding.  it was hard for me to find my balance as a sister and as a wedding planner.  i was a bridesmaid in the wedding and my daughter was the flower girl.  it was a blast, and a day i will never forget.  

trisha chose purple + pewter as her wedding colors.  we had to be careful that the design didn't turn into the pioneer high school prom all over again, so we carefully composed a design that focused on the purples she loved so much and incorporated the pewter with elegant, but vintage touches.  no white allowed.

shortly after composing her guest list, and researching some venues, she settled upon first united methodist for her ceremony and travis pointe country club for her reception.  we took care of big ticket items such as hiring jill devries for photography, wayne kinney as the DJ, sweet pea floral design for the flowers, andy owen from owen video for cinematography, hair and make-up by Julie and Hannah of Imagine Three, and the jefferson market cakery for her wedding cake.  we selected gorgeous table linens, napkins, and silver chiavari chairs from chair covers and linens, selected the type of lighting style we wanted, and worked out the smaller details from there.  

clearly this wedding means a great deal to me, and i will let the pictures show you what i mean...
