What an amazing couple! Lisa and Phil are just so down to earth and FUN. From the moment we met, all the way up to the end of the wedding reception at Plantation Party House, this process has been super fun. I loved getting Lisa’s notes and felt special each time… treated like a person, not just a vendor. After meeting the families, I can see why Lisa and Phil are so great and so great for each other.
Everyone I met was full of smiles smiles smiles! It was also fun to be at a wedding with a bunch of children. They added a really great element to the day and the flower girls were too cute! Lisa is one of the most ripped Brides I’ve seen in a while and you can clearly see she is a swimmer by those ‘guns’ of hers! She and Phil were really playful together and he seems to really enjoy making her laugh. They are an inspiration in their light hearted approach to life and love. It was an honor to spend the day stalking them, I mean photographing them. Have a great time on your honeymoon! I’m SO wishing I could bike around Spain too!
The day got off to a decent start for most. I’m noticing a trend this year…. somehow it is always the Groomsmen that are late/delayed/detained/bleeding. Most of my pre-wedding portrait time was taken away, however thanks to super organized (and attentive) families, we were able to get all the formal portraits we wanted and more. I kept feeling like I didn’t have the time I needed, however Zack from the Plantation Party House said I was right on schedule. So long as he wasn’t waiting on me to finish, I feel good. I do have to say, it was refreshing to work at a location where the coordinator was present and helpful. I was able to do my job smoothly because he was doing a great job at his. I was also surprised that he kept checking with all of the vendors to be sure we were all on the same page and to see if we needed anything! That is so rare!
Anyway, everything went smoothly for me because of his professionalism. Everyone involved was a true professional. From the florist to the bartenders to the band. Hopefully Lisa and Phil feel the same way. Obviously I see a lot of behind the scenes stuff and meet a lot of the other vendors, so I have an interesting perspective. All I know is that the dance floor was packed all night long, the bar was full and the desserts were devoured.
