What would happen if you found out after you already sent out your save the dates that the venue you thought your wedding planner had secured didn’t have your wedding booked? This is exactly the nightmare that happened to Sophia + Mitchel. Not only did their wedding planner make promises he couldn’t delivered, but he up and left this young couple without any notice and just disappeared and that’s when Elegant Affairs stepped in.
Sophia reached out to out to us 7 months before her wedding and we immediately jumped into action after hearing what had happened to them and wanted to make their fairytale wedding come true. Luckily their venue was still available as well as the caterer they wanted. Assembling a great vendor team, we made the rest of the planning a breeze for Sophia who was getting ready to graduate from Gonzaga.
We made the most out of time we had with Sophia when she came home on school breaks and weekends to finalize every last detail of her two-venue wedding including creating a who new vision for her reception that Shane with Oak and Fig Floral completely nailed.
Over the short time we spent together, I just fell in love with these two and developed a great bond and friendship with. I was honored to have been asked to play a role in their wedding ceremony that I will never forget.
Sophia + Mitchel, you two were such a dream to work with and the love you two share is what all couple to strive for and I cannot wait to see what you two can really accomplish both personally and professionally.
