Where to even begin?? It is hard for me to sum up all of the wonderful ways in which Kate (and her associates) helped to execute our most perfect, dreamy, and timeless wedding day.
From our very first phone conversation, I could sense an effortless ease about Kate and her visionary mindset. As a bride who was planning her wedding from out of country (we're from Canada), I knew that having a local contact (scratch that : expert) would be an invaluable resource for our wedding planning. We were referred to Bloom & BluePrint by our photographer- this was a game changing moment for our planning process. Having thought we were on track with everything, looking back on it now, is funny to me. Without hiring Bloom & BluePrint at the time we did (4 months out from our wedding), I can confidently say that we would have never pulled off our vision (which had evolved numerous times and only until working with Kate did we finally reach our final look and feel - in the end, we reached exactly what we didn't know we were striving for).
Kate is consistently available by phone, email, and text- I appreciated our various ways of communication...often sending ideas and photos multiple times a day- yet never once did I feel that I was taking too much of her time. She would even check in on me if I hadn't been in touch for a few days- talk about stellar and exemplary service!
Once we had our action plan in place, if there were items needing to be sourced locally, Kate would often present several options in varying price ranges to ensure we were able to choose something to fit our budget. Kate always had a gentle way of keeping our vision and budget top of mind- helping to keep our planning on track...she would always encourage us to do what felt right for us, not what the 'wedding industry' tells us to believe we need!!! These checks and balances kept us level headed and also allowed us to truly enjoy our months working with her.
Upon arriving in Arizona, we had the opportunity to finally meet in person which was a highlight of our wedding week- Kate is so warm, friendly and charismatic- I couldn't help but feel I'd not only found an incredible vendor but also a friend! I felt so confident knowing Kate had completed so many of our DIY projects, helped source last minute decor items, and assured us that she would be with us every step of the way on our BIG day. I wasn't able to fully appreciate how much work and attention to detail went into the styling of our day until after the wedding ceremony- when I was able to walk around our venue in AWE of how our vision turned into a reality....all thanks to Kate's impeccable taste!!! She knew exactly how to address every small detail and then some- I, along with all of our friends and family, were absolutely impressed with how the venue was presented. We had compliments all day long!!!
Throughout the rest of the day, Kate and her associates were there to ensure the plan we had laid out continued to flow smoothly. At the end of the night, they seamlessly packed up our gifts, cards and decor items placing everything together on an organized, well parceled luggage cart from the hotel- and arranged (or did they push it themselves...they're like magic elves, so I should confirm this?! hehe) to have it delivered to my sister in law's room so that we were able to continue to enjoy the evening with our guests.
We literally had no duties the entire day other than to enjoy it to the absolute fullest. This is a gift! The gift of time with the people who matter most in your lives- as everyone is there to celebrate you and your spouse, not to worry about hanging florals or setting out placecards. Our day was stress free, thanks to Bloom & BluePrint.
I'm unwavering in my support for this business, so much so that I urge you to end your search right this instant and do whatever it takes to hire Bloom & BluePrint to realize all of your wedding dreams- you will not be sorry. It is rare to find such a confident, competent, and caring professional such as Kate.
Happy planning and best wishes for your future!!!
