Oh my, where to start on this one? The excitement of bride Liza? The ever-laughing groom Martin? The heatwave on their wedding day? The dinner in a greenhouse? The love between these two? Boy o boy, this wedding is one for the books! I met Liza & Martin on Engaged 2014, where they immediately charmed everyone with their enthusiasm and fun ideas. A LOT of ideas. And that is where they struggled. Because wouldn't it be too much? Liza asked for my help, as she didn't want to burden her family & friends with all her brainwaves. I was more than happy to think with her and to give some structure to this lovely couple.
Most brides fear for rain on their wedding day. A small heatwave doesn't come to mind. But let me tell you, moving heavy furniture in a greenhouse while it's 40 degrees isn't a perfect day for people working behind the scenes. Thankfully, the positive vibes of this bride & groom were contagious and we loved working for them. Every second of it.
Liza collected a lot of furniture and decoration, handed it over and trusted me completely. If anyone could understand her vision on the day, it would be me, so she said. Me and Joëlle set up the ceremony space, a lounge corner in the field and a Kinfolk-style dinner under the grape vines in the greenhouse. I will never forget the moment the newlyweds walked into the greenhouse. It looked stunning and these sweethearts were so, so happy to see it. Seeing dreams come true is what makes this job more than special. Tears in my eyes guys!
Liza&Martin, I wish you all the best and more! ♥
