We have a soft spot in our heart to always see families of our client’s get married and grow! And it was such an honor to have Kathy and Edwin hire our team to put on their April wedding at Hummingbird Nest Ranch. We worked with Kathy’s sweet sister, Ivy (see wedding here), just a few years prior and could not be any happier to hear when her sister was engaged! The couple planned their wedding for April, and despite the risk of rain, they took the risk and planned their dream wedding.
All our couples love to bring their personalities into the wedding, and this couple really brought in a lot of their interests and favorites everyone knew them for. Kathy loved Pocky biscuit sticks and was known to always snack on this sweet and savory snack, so we designed a pre-ceremony snack station with Pocky! The official Pocky manufacturing company even saw our Instagram post and offered to send a gift to the couple just for having them a part of their big day. Edwin was known for his knack for music trivia! We never had a groom love music trivia so much so we created a way for the guests to get involved and play along. Guests were given custom music trivia game sheets upon arrival to the wedding and scouted the venue for music lyrics, in which had to guess the title and artist of each song. The grand prize: an IPAD for the winner of the game! Let’s just say it was a pretty EPIC win that had a two way tie ending with a dance battle, and a courageous guest who rapped the entire song.
Did we mention it actually did rain? The week prior to the wedding forecasted a 90% chance of rain, so we worked quickly to evaluate possible back up plans that would bring in the least amount of financial burden on the client. We luckily were able to move the event inside the venue’s barn, which was just recently gutted out to be used as a new event space. Considering the couple did want an entire outdoor wedding and the fact that it did rain on the wedding day, this option looked intentional and the guests were amazed that the back-up plan was not the plan in place from the beginning.
Kathy and Edwin, what can I say? I love you two so much and am so HAPPY to have worked with you, see your families again, and watch you wed! And you both are now auntie and uncle to Ivy’s adorable daughter! So many happy moments that I am genuinely so thankful to continually see happening in your lives!
