Hannah & Greg are one-of-a-kind. Hannah is a photographer packed with spunkiness; She is blonde, full of life, and loves white wine. Greg is a quiet, laid back, firefighter from Detroit who spends his spare time working on cars. They are complete opposites that fit together so perfectly.
Hannah is one of my best friends so when I was asked to not only be her wedding planner but to be her bridesmaid I was completely overwhelmed! Overwhelmed with excitement because she was my best friend and I wanted to be the one to guarantee her day is perfect :: Overwhelmed with stress knowing how much more work I would put into this day as double duty and impressing this professional wedding photographer! Mixed emotions of work, friendship, & love! Although it wasn't going to be easy, I was ready for the challenge.
She came to me with the idea of a “geo” theme - I loved it! So fun & playful, just like Hannah! Geometric shapes were the up & coming trend for 2017 and no one else in this area had used it for a wedding! Gold geo’s with accents of pale pinks and navy was our focus for their dream day.
As a professional photographer in the Myrtle Beach area, Hannah had worked with some of the best wedding vendors around and wanted all of them for her big day! When looking for a venue, they struggled at first but quickly found her dream location - A graceful country club in the heart of the Grand Strand and one of Myrtle Beach’s oldest landmarks, Pine Lakes Country Club.
The southern architecture full of gold & crystal chandeliers and sky blue walls was home for Hannah and Greg’s wedding. With Kelly from Little Shop of Flowers, we designed the florals around the drama & elegance of the venue. Delicate anemones were flown in from Italy and became the centerfold to the remarkable arrangements & bouquets. I had never seen anything like it, truly stunning!
Buttercream Cakes put together a display of adorable mini cake shots, pink & blue rock candy, and a geometric shaped cake with a marbling fondant and touches of gold foiling. The mini strawberry cheesecakes shots were to die for (I could’ve eaten 40) and the cake was too pretty to cut - I still can’t stop looking at pictures of it!
Magnolia Photography captured every perfect detail of the day including the airbrush artist customizing neon trucker hats! YES, an airbrusher was on site to create personalized hats for each guest! This wedding had all the bells & whistles, with a fine attention to detail. Laura of Charlotte & Lilly designed gorgeous geo themed invitations suites. She even constructed mini geometric labels to tie on to the moscow mule mugs. Again, EVERY BELL & WHISTLE!
While sipping moscow mules during cocktail hour, Hannah surprised Greg with custom Detroit Lions corn hole boards which everyone enjoyed using that evening. DJ Scott & Co. got the party started and kept it rocking all night!
Hannah & Greg went out with a BANG! They had no idea that Greg’s brother had fireworks planned for their spectacular exit! From start to finish, this wedding was everything one could only dream!
Cheers to MR & MRS BOISVERT on forever! Thanks for letting me be a part of your lives!
