When I try to put into words what I love most about this job of mine, all I can think about is my experience working with and helping Ellen and Bruno to plan their wedding day this past summer.
It was a wedding made up of all the good stuff.... celebrated at the family cottage on the ocean, a family-style meal as always, deliciously prepared by Scott and his team at Certainly Cinnamon, dancing into the wee-hours of morning on the lawn in bare-feet to the sounds of Big Fish, and every last pretty detail you could hope for.
Pretty-details and the perfect sunny August day aside, what stands out to me the most of Ellen & Bruno's day was the love, family and connection that the wedding planning process was so deeply rooted in.
Throughout our planning process, Ellen's family and I would often meet on Sunday mornings at their home, talking wedding details while sipping coffee. This time we spent together really helped me to understand just how important this celebration was to not only the Bride & Groom, but their entire extended family.
A few weeks leading up to the wedding, Ellen's Dad and I were on a daily texting basis (emoji convos and all), her Mom and I trying to figure out the perfect formula of how much wine to buy, and of course Ellen and Bruno, working through every last planning detail from afar with so much grace and poise. It all came together beautifully in the end. This truly is what I wake up so grateful for every day to get to call my job.
I'm all warm-and-fuzzy just typing this little recap that can't possibly put into words how wonderful this experience was.
Ellen & Bruno, I adore you (and of course your fams!!!) both so so much! Looking through these photos taken by Erin Bulger brings me the most joy and I am so grateful to have had the opportunity to get to know you both and be apart of this day.
So much love! Katelyn xo
