Very rarely do wedding planners get to be a part of someone’s entire love story. Usually, they are engaged and into planning before we ever meet. That is not the case with our sweet Kiersten & AJ. My bonus mom is best friends with Kiersten’s mother, Letha. They take an annual girls trip to the Mount Dora Arts and Crafts Festival. AJ, is a firefighter in Mount Dora so naturally Kiersten would bump into her future husband in a different city on a random day (RIGHT?! Crazy, I know) After some embarrassing conversation the two went on their first date while she was in town for the festival and the rest is history.
Upon AJ asking permission for Kiersten’s hand in marriage, Letha asked me to assist in finding a photographer to capture the proposal. We don’t just plan weddings, we plan proposals too! Lisa Silva came in like a shining light and happened to be available on a Saturday! After Kiersten said YES, they brought Lisa and myself onto the wedding team! Planning alongside Kiersten and Letha has been one of the highest honors of my career. They care about the people around them. They truly love their vendors and view them as people with feelings and hearts.
I poured all of my heart into them for over a year. Our design required a full venue flip, pipe and draping and more. A lot of moving pieces that had to be executed perfectly. Watching Kiersten’s first look with her Dad pretty much kicked off tears from the get go. I could not have been more proud of my vendor team and how the entire day was experienced. They also won a contest held by Country star, Blane Howard. As a result, we flew into Saint Augustine to sing their first dance song, “Promise to Love Her” which is an original of his. Kiersten and AJ’s love story is phenomenal. The emotions they share for each other shine in every picture.
