Elena + Greg: 06.06.15

Elena and Greg were another one my referrals this year that came from a past client – Elena used to work with Christy, one of my 2010 clients and now friends!  It was great to catch up with Christy and see her and Bryce!

Typically, when a wedding season is really rainy or very cold, we get reprieve for at least one wedding. Elena and Greg’s was that wedding this year! June 6 was an absolutely beautiful day – clear and sunny with just enough breeze to keep things comfortable!  Perfect conditions for an outdoor ceremony and open air reception.

Greg and his groomsmen started the day at the Old Familiar Barbershop for hot shaves and trims – a very cool way to start the day for sure!  Elena and her bridesmaids had the Hawthorne Bed and Breakfast to themselves for breakfast, hair and makeup before a first look on the steps of the B&B.

After pictures, everyone headed to Jorgensen Farm for a ceremony performed by Elena’s brother in law in the field beneath a huge tree which gave us just enough shade for everyone to be comfortable.  We had cocktail hour in front of the old barn before inviting the guests to the riding arena for dinner and dancing with Conspiracy.

As a surprise to everyone, Greg had the pep band from TBDBITL at OSU led by the Drum Major swing by!  We snuck them onto the grounds and they came marching in right after the Mother/Son dance.  The guests loved it – even the ones from Wisconsin!  TBDBITL, of course, ended their performance with a beautiful rendition of Carmen Ohio .

I have to share one last thing about this wedding – occasionally we make the comment that “wedding planning isn’t brain surgery” – that’s especially relevant with Elena since she’s an actual brain surgeon.  Like a “cut-open-heads-and-fix-them” brain surgeon.  See?  Really smart people hire wedding planners.

It was a gorgeous day and we were honored to have been a part of it!  Thanks to Kimberly Potterf for the beautiful pictures!!!
