"My fiance and I spent what felt like forever debating if we would need to hire a wedding planner and a florist. We really didn't want to because we felt we could handle most of it ourselves, but the hesitation was around the decor, flowers, and overall style of our wedding. I'm clueless when it comes to making something out of nothing...
Enter Kelly (Champagne Projects).
We met Kelly when she was hitting the ground running with Champagne Projects and always loved EVERYTHING she put together (even things for fun around her home -- you should see what this woman can do with almost any size budget and creative freedom -- it's astounding). So we thought, hmm, why hire a wedding planner and a florist when we have someone we trust right here?
Fast forward to the planning part.
I hate planning. Did I mention I have no eye for decor? Right. Well, Kelly dealt with this for about 6 months, providing suggestions, finding alternatives, and essentially saying, "It's OK, I got this," about a zillion times. If it weren't for her quick-thinking, eye for creativity, and love for design, I'd have pulled my hair out well before the wedding ;) ...she even worked with the event coordinator to arrive early to have time to get everything done without rushing -- details I'd never have thought of, she took it upon herself to go above and beyond.
So long story even longer, Champagne Projects KILLED IT at our wedding. The bride and bridesmaid bouquets were the perfect balance of color and size, the centerpieces made the boring white table cloths seem non-existent, and the head table looked like something out of a fairy tale. She even personally wove together eucalyptus garland for our ceremony and brought extra flowers for the cake and desert table. When we got to the venue after Kelly and the event coordinator had set up, I had to walk around and just take it all in. She was able to do what most people really seem to struggle with - MAKE YOUR PINTEREST DREAMS A REALITY - at a really competitive rate.
If that doesn't justify choosing Kelly to style your event, browse the photos on her website and Instagram. They speak for themselves! I wish I had more photos to share but they're not back from the photographer yet.
THANK YOU Kelly for doing (what I felt like was) the impossible <3"
