The wedding was at The Greenbranch. This is a special venue for me since I coordinated the very first wedding Jim and Darlynne hosted on their property. This wedding took place before either of us was "in the business" and was one of the first I coordinated. The Greenbranch was as beautiful as always. Such a wonderful venue for an outdoor Garden Wedding!
I was very excited while observing Susan because I knew this friendship was meant to be. Susan handled her rehearsal, before/ during the ceremony details in a similar fashion to my style. I knew as I was watching her that I would have no problem recommending her to any bride or have her step in "just in case" to represent me.
The morning of the wedding, I bought my new camera, so I spent some time playing with it and capturing some beautiful aspects of the wedding "on film". Enjoy the pictures!!

Because of the distance, I was only able to come to College Station several times during the year; and it was always at a busy time, or on a busy weekend at the campus. Erin worked so wonderfully around our limited schedules and was able to line up meetings for us with all of the vendors that we would need. Her recommendations and hints were very helpful to us in making our final decisions on which vendors to hire. We were not disappointed in any of them. Erin worked easily with each of them along the way and on the day of the wedding.
On the day of the wedding, it was unusually hot – even for Texas. Erin was there to help out with cold bottles of water to keep everyone comfortable during the outdoor pictures before the wedding. She even delivered plates of sandwiches that I had ordered to tide over the wedding party until the reception. I did not have to worry about anything at the wedding. Erin had told me that I would not need my watch and she was right. She made sure everything went on schedule without a hitch. The wedding of our only daughter was emotional enough as it was, I can’t imagine what it would have been like if I had the added stress of doing everything ourselves. I’m so thankful that Erin was there and that we were able to enjoy and take in every moment of Sadie and John’s wedding.
The reception was exactly was we had thought it would be. Sadie wanted the reception to be fun and memorable. Once again, Erin coordinated the evening with the other vendors and I did not have to worry about a thing. She was there to help Sadie and John get all of their “Bride and Groom” tasks completed, but also to help them enjoy all of the fun of the evening. I couldn’t believe how fast the evening seemed to go. Time flies when you’re having fun!
I’ve told several people after the wedding that I was glad we only had one daughter. But truthfully, if we had another wedding to plan in the future, I would call upon Erin in a heartbeat to help me out again. She made the whole year+ process so enjoyable for us and so stress-free. Thanks Erin, for being such a big part of the precious time for all of us.

Thank you so much for all of your help coordinating our wedding. I really appreciate your patience and attention to detail with all of the preparations. Vadim and I are grateful that you were able to arrange the setup and cleanup for the reception and ceremony and for much less than we expected and we got our full deposit back from the 7F Lodge. I’m amazed how quickly and thoroughly you responded to all of my emails and it was clear that you have a lot of experience with weddings and handling all of the little details that never even occurred to me. Thank you again for helping to make our wedding such a special and wonderful day :)
-Karen & Vadim
