Kathy and Eric

Ok so this wedding was everything a girl's fairytale wedding could consist of. I am so anxious to post about it that it will get two posts one with non pro photos and the next with the pro pics. 
Kathy is what I picture when the words human barbie doll come to mind. This girl is a Russian beauty and her now husband Eric is her Ken. They are a perfect match and so gorgeous together. 
When Kathy and Eric came to me last year to start planning this event I was excited for many reasons. One she wanted to incorporate some Russian traditions into her wedding, and two she let me choose every one of her vendors. I pretty much knew which vendors would suit her needs right then and there. 
The team that helped create this amazing wedding were as follows..
Jeff Ruby's Downtown was the location for the rehearsal dinner. I can not say enough great things about Kathy who put the dinner together. Of course the food was delish. 
Old St. Mary's church on 13th Street downtown. This church is absolutely stunning. The only downfall was the lack of air conditioning but the day was perfect so it was very bearable.
The Westin Hotel Downtown.. nothing but amazing and very accommodating for the many Russian only speaking guests.
Shane Weber Salon did an amazing job on the girls and mothers hair and was able to work with some last minute changes on the brides hair style. Shane's salon and his staff are all awesome. 
Penny Cooley from BrideFace did all of the girls makeup on site at the salon. She did a stunning job on their faces.
Jimmy's Limo was the transportation for the day and they did a perfect job as always. 
Laurel Court was the location for the reception. Unfortunately this is the last year they will do receptions here but they will continue to host outdoor weddings. This venue is one of my favorite's for a smaller group. It is truly a hidden gem. 
Jeff Thomas catered the reception and was awesome to work with. The very Russian flared meal was impeccable as well as the service. 
Cork N Bottle provided the alcohol.
Meier's wine cellar provided all of the wine and champagne for the night. They are great  to work with. 
All Occasions provided the rental items that included all tables, gold chiavari chairs, gold rimmed china with matching flat wear.
Yours truly provided all of the linens for the event with the help of Connie Duglin Linen. We went with a burgundy crinkle taffeta for the linen with a ivory and gold overlay. Burgundy crinkle napkins tied the table together perfectly.
A New Leaf Florist did a wonderful job on all of the table centerpieces as well as the bridal party flowers. Everything was beautiful and Tiffany was a gem to work with. 
Maize Music brought in the additional lighting as well as a wall monogram. They also kept the music flowing perfectly. 
Tres Belle Cakes did a fantastic job on the cake and it was delicious as always. 
28:20 Films captured the day on video and once again they were a pleasure to work with. 
Masterworks photography did all of the photos for the day and I am confident that they will look amazing as always. 
Frills and Forever created all of the stationary for the wedding including the invitations, escort cards, table numbers and programs. They are awesome to work with. 
Stay tuned for the photos from Masterworks to see all of the amazing details pulled perfectly together.
