A client asked me the other day what I thought made a good wedding. I think a great band makes a great party, but I really think the couple being as happy as Sophie & Ben were all day long makes a great wedding! I'm so grateful Sophie chose me to help with her wedding, because I gained a great friend. Ben is a lucky guy! Scroll down to see all the beautiful photos by Anna Laine Photography and to read my Q & A with the bride!
Q. How did you two meet?
A. A mutual friend invited me to Ben's housewarming party; we hit it off right away!
Q. Tell us about the engagement:
A. He proposed to me with his grandmother's diamond, in the same spot in New Orleans that his grandfather proposed to his grandmother.
Q. What was your favorite part of the planning process?
A. Meeting with my florist and coming up with the overall design of the wedding and decorations with her and Josie. It all felt so real at that point.
Q. Favorite moment of the wedding day?
A. The dancing! We had an incredible band, and the dance floor was so alive. I loved dancing with my friends and family and celebrating the joy!
Q. Any advice to other brides?
A. Just remember to relax -- the little details can seem stressful at times, but it is all for the fun in the end! And that's the best part of having a wedding planner; the whole process becomes much less stressful!
