There’s something special about getting to work the wedding of people you love. But when you’re related to them, it’s even more amazing. Kaleb is my husband’s sweet cousin, and Kaiyla may as well be my soul sister. These two got married in a bit of a whirlwind after Kaleb got a job offer in a ministry a few cities away, and knew he wanted to start out with Kaiyla as his wife. So we shifted some things around, and got them married in May! This venue was a little gem tucked into downtown Gadsden, and the second I set foot in it I couldn’t stop grinning and bouncing.
Every detail came together perfectly, and it was a beautiful day. But even more beautiful was the fact that if it hadn’t – neither Kaiyla or Kaleb would have cared one bit. These two love each other so much, it’s palpable. We are blessed and thankful to welcome Kaiyla into our family, and I got some gorgeous wedding pictures out of it!
I’ll try my best to show/describe my appreciation for Blake, but I honestly feel like there is no way people can fully understand her worth until they have personally experienced her amazing work. Blake and I began conversing and sharing ideas, and she covered literally everything that was needed to prepare for that perfect wedding day we all dream of. I think it’s also important to let everyone know that during this entire planning process, I was in Gadsden, AL, and Blake was in Baton Rouge, LA. She made sure to touch base frequently and always contacted me when there was something we needed to go over. For those who aren’t married yet, you WILL miss something, and this lady will catch it! When planning the “day of” schedule, she made sure everything was in the best order (times included) to make this day flow as smoothly as possible. I finally got to meet Blake a few days before my wedding, and she was even more awesome in person!! She came for my rehearsal and ran that like a CHAMP!
Blake was there early the day of to decorate, organize, and meet with anybody involved – photographers, venue staff, etc. While getting ready, she checked in with me to see if there was anything I needed, and at the same time, she was handling all the behind the scenes events that come along with a wedding day. She made sure to fulfill EVERY request I made, and she didn’t miss a thing! Blake was calm and positive (feisty when necessary) every second of the day, and she made it a top priority for me to enjoy the day, and I absolutely did. I have been asked many times about the “stress” on my wedding day, and simply put, I had NONE at all! Our wedding day was literally everything I imagined – PERFECT!
When returning back from the honeymoon, I raved to our families about how perfect the day was and how NOTHING went wrong, and they told me about a little incident that occurred…And you know what.. BLAKE was there to save the day, and I had NO idea anything had gone wrong at all. That is just one instance I learned of, but I am sure there are many more things she did to save the day that I have no clue about. Blake is very passionate about her job, and she put her all into making our special day the best it could be. I would recommend her to anybody who will soon have their own special day! She NAILED it!
