During our conversation Meg told me about a story that’ll go down in the Hall of Fame for Wedding Planners. She brought up her dedication to the client and their day saying “I could break my foot and they would never know about it.” The funny thing is, she actually did. “I got the couple through their ceremony, went to the ER, had an assistant cover me while I was gone, and came back for their reception in a cast.” She came back! Most people would have called it quits and gone home but she came back to make sure her couple had a fantastic day. That’s dedication.Read More
Mamta and Hirsha's wedding at the Camelback Lodge in the Pocono Mountains of Pennsylvania was this past December and all of us had our fingers crossed for snow! We had a backup plan, of course — wander into the snow machines for the slopes. But the weather was on our side and we didn’t just get snow — we got a snow STORM! Though the weather said “just a dusting,” while Mamta was still getting ready, it started snowing heavily! It stayed that way through their first look! They were so excited for snow photos that they stayed out for more than 45 minutes for portraits. (Mamta in those open toed shoes!) Hirsha’s family had a blast arriving in style — and in the snow! With the mountains as our backdrop, they had a beautiful and emotional ceremony filled with family.Read More
