The moment I met Kristi, I knew we would be friends for life. And we are. Not only because we both share a love of wine, but because I felt like I was talking to one of my best friends from childhood during our initial meeting. Kristi is the sweetest girl I know; she has the most energetic and outgoing personality and makes everyone feel like a close friend. I knew we were going to have a blast planning her wedding for the next year.
Kristi and Jon walked into the Adler Planetarium and fell in love; we knew that was the place for them to have the reception. Kristi is modern and tres chic, but simple and classic; we knew we had the perfect setting for her wedding reception. I will never forget walking into Blumen Design, for Kristi’s floral sample and she screamed when she saw her floral design – with excitement! Amy and I still laugh about that to this day; she was just so overjoyed with everything and that made the planning process so much fun, for everyone involved.
Kristi and Jon’s wedding day was picture perfect. She looked exquisite in her Saison Blanche Couture bridal gown and her bridesmaids looked gorgeous and cheerful in their bright yellow dresses with hot pink bouquets. Her reception was stunning – black linens and chairs, hot pink and yellow floral and pink up lights – incredible against the city skyline. There was not a dry eye in the room as their best friends and family talked about Kristi and Jon during their reception. It was an honor to be a part of such a beautiful wedding for this beautiful couple, inside and out (and now friends for life!) Thanks Kristi and Jon!
