I had the privilege of coordinating an extremely beautiful and sentimental vintage wedding. The ceremony and reception took place at 7F Lodge which is one of my favorite venues in the Bryan/College Station area. It is always beautiful and their managers and staff are so accommodating. I did about half of the set up of the amazing decorations. The bride and her mom spent hours creating areas to set up pictures, a chest of love, some hanging ribbons, antique family lace and doilies; all the decorations were either truly vintage or designed to have a classic appearance.Their photographer was Tara Swain. This was my first time meeting and working with Tara. She has an gentle and easy temperament and her pictures are simply incredible. Sandee Moss with Cinderella Stories created the delectable cake. Chance with Livewire was the Master of Ceremonies for the evening. Post Oak Florist created the romantic ambiance of the evening with candles everywhere including hanging from the trees. One touch of detail that Post Oak thought of was to use electric candles in the holders hanging from the trees. Since Texas has been in a drought for virtually a year, trees are extremely flammable. The artificial lights were just as beautiful as real candles and it was nice to feel safe knowing that they were not a fire hazard. I met a new and fabulous videographer; a fellow Aggie named Jensen Yancey with EP Wedding Films. His highlight video from the wedding can be found posted on his blog. It is fabulous. The food was delicious and the caterer, Home's Haven was so fun and helpful. It's always nice to work with a group of people who will work together to make an event fabulous for the bride and groom. This league of wedding vendors was fantastic and it made for an incredible night.
Overall, the ceremony and reception ran seamlessly. I enjoyed getting to know this sweet couple and their family. I found out that Kevin and Ginann have been sweet hearts since the 8th grade. How often do you hear about couples that are so devoted to each other?
