There's nothing better (well there are likely lots of things better if I am to speak plainly) than guests entering your wedding reception or ceremony and saying to themselves, 'Oh, this is so them, it's so pretty/funny/quirky/hilarious/perfect/breathtaking...'
Getting ready has become a large part of the wedding day, you'll likely spend more time here than you will your ceremony, your dinner hour, your pictures... it takes a lot of time, and I'm sure you want to capture it.
Pinterest is amazing. It's like 50,000 free bridal magazines and one collage board, sans-scissors and glue sticks. But it lacks 1 major thing when it comes to wedding inspiration: a price tag. Did I say dollars...
That part is key. Laura, you guys know Laura, with Lumos Images let me pick her brain and together we've come up with 6 reasons to convince you to take engagement photos with your wedding photographer.
this week I have a pal, Mark Fierst, who happens to be a photographer, and who strongly believes in first looks. I support his favor of first looks, but I also support you if you want to not have a first look and so does Mark...
"Josey, Thank you so much for everything you did to help prepare and organize us and for coordinating our rehearsal and wedding day! We would've been lost without you and appreciated your vendor suggestions as well. You worked your butt off, girl, and we are so grateful for you!"
"Josey was so thoughtful about all of the details of our event, was always willing to meet up and talk through things, and is so fun to work with. Multiple bridal party members commented about how great she was as a planner and how fun(ny) she was as a person."
"Josey has a super upbeat personality, is fun to talk to, hard working and very responsive! Hiring her has been one of the best decisions we made so far!! I feel soo much less stressed knowing I have her to offer advice and bounce ideas off of!"
"I love that you got me and my crazy vision of being surrounded by balloons. You are a magician! Josey made the end process even easier for us. It was truly a weight off of our shoulders. I feel like I need more Josey in my life - can we seriously be best friends?! The day was perfect - it truly was. I know that’s cliche, but it all went smoothly and Jason and I had the best day ever."
"Everything went better than expected and we are both really happy about our wedding day. You made my day so easy and amazing. You are so supportive and helped in every way. Thank you for all of your help!"
"Josey is always 1000 steps ahead of the game, she knows exactly what she is doing (this isn't her first rodeo), and she will take care of things you didn't even know existed. Sixpence Events is as essential as your wedding dress or your groom.. seriously."
From day one she was insanely organized, personable, and very responsive to questions thrown her way via email. On the day of the wedding she worked with all my wedding vendors to make sure the night was stress free - and it was! If there were any hiccups that day I never heard about them, which is exactly what I was looking for.
"We love you! Not only were you our day-of coordinator, but we got to develop a friendship with you. Your humor, organization, advice, and excitement was incredibly helpful through the planning process. Your presence on the day out everything at ease, knowing you knew our vision and we're going to execute it greatly."
"If you’re thinking twice about whether or not to have Josey plan your wedding, stop it. Just hire her and you will not regret it. She was an angel that came into our lives while we planned for our wedding and made the process so incredibly easy..."
I didn’t realize how valuable having a good day-of coordinator would be until the wedding day actually arrived! Josey made the day so much better. She anticipated things that we never would have considered and stayed on top of a huge number of details...
Josey, Thank you for helping to make our wedding possible. Your personality and positive energies are infectious. I knew as soon as I met you that you were the wedding planner for us! Thank you for keeping me calm and happy amidst...
Josey did so many things that I do not even know about! It was PRICELESS for me to be able to spend every minute of the day after months of planning, to truly ENJOY the day...We LOVED Josey - would not have had the perfect day that we did without her there!
