This past weekend was one I’ve been gearing up for an entire year. Last year when I officially moved down with Lily to Atlanta, Zach was insistent on me being introduced to Kimberley, a co-worker of Zach’s new fiance. Of course, we hit it off within minutes of chatting, having extremely similar tastes in fashion, food, fitness and general personalities. We worked out together, laughed together, had a little too much fun one night at a well known bar called Prohibition and created countless memories.
The nice thing about this cute little town was that it didn’t have a lot of service. I was really able to dive into helping Kimberly and Michael get everything ready for their big day. The bad news was that due to where we were located, we were on the boarder of central time and eastern time within certain feet of where the location was. One minute it would be 8:30am and the next 9:30am so we had to really make sure we were all on the same time zone! It was a bit confusing.
They did almost everything themselves including setting up their ceremony, cocktail hour and reception hall and thanks to the majority of the wedding party and family members, we were able to get everything done. Kimberly even made her own wedding cake which not only looked incredible but tasted even better!
As coordinator, I was in charge of making sure everything ran smoothly. From the guests being seated, to gathering the bridesmaids, making sure the groom has his wedding vows ready to go, the music was playing for the ceremony, catering was set up and the band was going to be playing the correct music when the bridal party walked in..it was a lot. As you can see, that binder and me were best friends all day and night while I double and triple checked that we were all on time and everything was in place. Maybe I’ll go into event planning down the road 😉
The challenge I’m sharing on my Instagram ( #FindYourCozyChallenge ) is talking about what makes you happy. My husband, my best friend, my other best friend. This couple makes me feel so grateful to have them help us survive our move here to Atlanta where we didn’t know anyone, to help us find a forever home, to teach us the southern’ ways and share their knowledge and growth in what it takes to be a strong and loving couple. I can’t wait to see what makes you happy! Don’t forget to use the hashtag to meet new friends and connections!
