Abigail + Ryan
If I had to choose one wedding to date in my career that I am most proud of, it would have to be this wedding. First came the seamless planning experience alongside Abigail, her mother and Ryan. They were so open to idea and allowed me to design a wedding vision that was truly and uniquely theirs. We didn’t have a theme but rather a concept. We wanted to incorporate her love for classic and romantic, with his love for all things modern. It was a challenge, but I think the final product was spot on.
When the day came, I actually was extremely sick. Not a little sick but 103 degree fever kind of sick. It was a rough 2nd day to their American/Nigerian wedding celebration but with my team at my side, we made it through. There were so many perfectly selected details. From gold escort cards to luxury linens to a custom altar backdrop, no detail was sparred. I am so proud of my team for pulling together and pulling this event off.
Happy 1st anniversary and congratulations on the little bundle of joy to Abigail & Ryan!
