Well there is no denying that Autumn and I are both Daddy’s girls, so while we take extra notice of these things, there is something so special about a Father on his daughter’s wedding day. We all understand that the planning, and the picking and trying things on are details that the bride usually shares with the mother, and the girls in the wedding. Going to cake tastings and discussing amazing painted flowers on a cake that is already amazingly glamourous….all shared with the girls. Sure the dad chimes in with a smile while watching the game, but choosing the right amount of crystals to go on that layer of cake really didn’t rank high on his priority list. But on the morning of the wedding, when the father of the bride see’s his baby girl come down the stairs on the happiest day of her life, in the most luxurious of gowns, it all becomes clear that THIS is what he was waiting for. For Mr. Bosma, this was the day that his baby girl was getting married and this moment made sitting through all of the detail conversations worth it. She was so happy, and that’s all he has ever wanted for her.
Deanna and Nick, along with Mr. and Mrs. Bosma, spared no expense to make sure that this day was exactly what Deanna and Nick dreamed it would be. Deanna looked amazing in her Katerina Bocci Couture Dress from Fiance Couture. Perfect hair from Cheryl Bobin and gorgeous florals from Fleur Couture complete with a floral designed ceremony aisle and glitter-sprinkled full roses for throwing. They were jaw dropping. Her shoes were perfectly adorned with just the right amount of crystals for Deanna’s taste and the Cake….oh that cake from Bob Fleckenstein of Fleckensteins bakery was just an absolute show stopper! The reception was filled with the same floral glitz as the ceremony and the place card board from our favorite Julie Hanan Designs was just as perfect as ever! There was not an empty spot on the dance floor the entire night thanks to the incredible DJ Ice. And there is one thing that, while we always thank the vendors, we want to take special mention. Wedding vendors need to work together as a team so that the result is wonderful for everyone. It seems like it would be common knowledge, but you’d be surprised. This wedding we were lucky enough to work with videographer Michael Charizopoulos, and it was so refreshing to have someone so professional, and such a team player who truly cared, not just about the video he was filming, but about the bride and groom themselves, and their day as a whole with the rest of us vendors. We are truly grateful when we get to work with people like that!
Congratulations to Deanna and Nick. Many thanks to the two of you, to Mr. and Mrs. Gualandri, and especially Mr. and Mrs. Bosma for welcoming us into your home and into your family.
We are truly blessed and wish everyone all the best!! xoxo Autumn and Melinda
