We are so excited to share Sarah & Jake’s New Orleans style wedding at Aldridge Gardens with you today friends! Sarah was one of my fav brides of 2017, seriously she is the cutest and happiest person you will ever meet. When we first met and she brought me her design plan, I knew this was a perfect fit! Sara was so organized and had such a specific vision for her wedding day. Her true style really shined on her wedding day and we couldn’t have been happier with the way it turned out.
What I loved most about working with Sarah was how important it was to combine her heritage, her & Jake’s story of meeting in Buenos Aires, and her New Orleans background. Sarah left no stone unturned and I was honored to help guide her in her planning. With our wedding day management package, we were able to give Sarah support throughout her planning and then help wrap up all the details & logistics. We were predicted to have rain on their outdoor wedding, and we were able to help create a plan B that I actually loved more than plan A. From dinner served family style, the jazz band during cocktails, guests dancing all night long thanks to DJ WellDunn, Sarah & Jake’s love of their dog Franny worked into small little details like the back of their envelope, their Snapchat filter and a fathead cut out in the photo booth, to finally wrapping the evening up with our jazz band leading the guests in a second line, I would say it was a success of an evening full of style, special moments, and an event that was truly Sarah & Jake.
“Ashley made me feel so at ease and confident knowing that there was someone steps ahead of me totally prepared to tackle major problems and answer incessant questions. Ashley should be your wedding planner if you are looking for someone assertive, patient and creative because she is all of those things and more. She stood out to me because she lets the client’s taste shine through. I did not want my wedding to reflect the planner, I wanted the wedding to reflect me, my fiance and our families. I am so grateful for Ashley and Kendal!!”
