French Country Wedding with Emma & Austin
05.22.21 | Millers Farm Barn
I first meet Emma and Austin in February 2020 with their wedding day just about a year away! We chatted about how the two of them met, their jobs, life her in Champaign and their wedding. I knew right away I would enjoy working with them both, and I so did!
Emma and Austin were one of my first wedding design couples so I wanted to make it a true experience when we consulted. We had so much fun creating her design look, after falling in love with the ivory charmed linen. Over the next few consultations, her mom came, Austin came and we called her sister Elise! We even made a trip up to Chicago to create her tabletop design!
As we continued to wedding plan, we became friends (even an invite to the bachelorette weekend!) That was a good thing as we all had to navigate through the pandemic. Emma & Austin were such an amazing couple through it all! They were understanding and respectful to all their vendors and eventually decided to keep their wedding date but with a venue change.
The week of the wedding I could tell how excited they both were! Together with the parents and family we set up the venue and laughed over those crazy ups & downs. I remember telling Emma’s dad, “how it was so great to work with a bride that cared so much about her wedding!” Every detail wasn’t untouched.
On their wedding day the vendor team flawlessly made the “Pinterest” look come to life! The two of them were glowing and you could tell they had so much fun!
When I’m asked “Why am I a wedding planner?” It’s because for me, to be able to guide a couple through an overwhelming experience and then see them on their wedding day unconditionally loving the day as a life memory they will never forget, is one of the most rewarding and continue blessing for me in my life’s career! Thank you Emma & Austin for choosing me as your planner and entrusting me with your wedding vision 🖤 @emmaleecabutti
