{Real Wedding}: Whitney + Michael

by Emily Grace

I’ll admit, the title is a little misleading because I’m not ready to share Whitney and Michael’s wedding just yet, but I am still on a major high from all of the joy and amazingness that this weekend brought. Coordinating this event was very different from any wedding that I’ve worked on up to this point. During most of the planning process, the couple was hard at work finishing their Masters Degrees at Texas A&M, and I had the pleasure of working hard with the Mother of the Bride to plan this day for them. What an amazing woman to take on a task like this, what a dream MoB!

This past weekend’s wedding was filled with so much love and friendship, and the hearts of everyone involved were just extraordinary. I’m so blessed to have been brought on as a part of this weekends events and the entire process leading up to this day. So many amazing vendors (and friends) pulled together all of their talents to make this day so wonderful. I cannot wait to share it with you all.

Until I get those fabulous pictures, check out Whitney and Michael’s engagement session that Mike & Ann Visual Storytellers have up on their blog. This session took place the week before their wedding at Golden Ocala country club where the reception was held the following week. This was my first meeting with Whitney and Mike and it was easy to see how in love and how excited they were to begin their lives together. What an amazing and fun-loving couple!

Check out their Getting to Know You Session and you have to watch the video! Excitement!!! Thanks Mike and Ann for your maniacal work and quick turn around on these photos to give this couple a wonderful guest book for everyone to sign, AND for all of  your hard work on Saturday capturing the energy of the day.

    Emily, as the Mother of the Bride of Whitney and Mike….I can’t describe what a joy it was to work with you in the planning, design and in the culmination of the wedding ceremony and reception! You made it all so easy although Whit and Mike were 1000 miles away, and I was almost always 700 miles away. You handled everything with grace, charm and creativity! You were able to take my scattered thoughts and create an event full of Truth and beauty! You paid attention to the details, you developed and produced a creative vision that enhanced Golden Ocala, not competed with it. You were quick on your feet to create solutions to obstacles (can you say….trees?) and you pulled together a fabulous group of vendors that had the same creative and “can do” spirit that you have…and what a team you all made. And you did it all with a huge, constant and contagious smile! Emily, thank you….thank you. And to those who read this and are contemplating using Emily….call me….you will be thrilled with her service and her graciousnes….she truly lives up to her middle name!
