{Brian and Ana: May 22, 2010} Love on the Lake, Part II

24 Jun

We love what we do. We really love to help couples enjoy the best day of their lives. Ana and Brian were so much fun for us. They are a young, fun and in-love couple. They are also some of the most relaxed and laid-back people we have ever worked with. We were so happy to be a part of their special day.

What kind of planners would we be if everything went perfectly? Sure, it would be nice, but we pride ourselves in making everything go smooth even when we are being tested. Ana and Brian said their “I Do’s” at Carolina Marina on a very overcast Saturday in May. As planners, we plan for everything … except the weather! (We can’t do much about that). We crossed our fingers and hoped…. But the sky fell out with heavy rain and lightening all day! Sure, we had prepared and had a tent setup, but that didn’t stop the buckets of water from coming down! But as things worked out, as they always do, it cleared up with a 30-minute window to setup! We were running around like crazy people … but we had a wonderful team of vendors and it ended up being a beautiful ceremony and the rain brought cooler breezes, no more bugs and a beautiful rainbow!

Thank you to Flowers By Candlelight for your awesomely unique centerpieces, and your ability to make everything beautiful. Thank you to Gain Composure Photography for all of the wonderful photos and especially for pitching in and helping us out during the storm, it was great to have you on our team! Ted’s Catering offered great food, great people and lots of help! It’s our experience that when you have an amazing team of wedding professionals, your wedding will be fabulous! Kenneth, with K2 Productions got the party stared for us! Congrats to Ana and Brian and thank you for allowing Merrymaking Events to be part of your big day!
