Today’s featured wedding video, brought to us by Derek Lamoureux of LC Productions, is heart-warming, tear jerking, and cinematic. Here’s Derek to tell us more:

Madison and Josh met back in 2014 on the dating website “Plenty of Fish”. They had their first date at the Western Fair Home Show, followed by a lovely dinner. Josh put a lot of planning into the proposal and it finally happened on a canoe trip to Algonquin Park.  Madi and Josh decided to get hitched at the beautiful Windermere Manor in London, Ontario. From beginning to end, their wedding day was full of laughs and magical moments. The LC Productions team thoroughly enjoyed being part of their day.

Congratulations Madison & Josh and thank you Derek for sharing! For more information about LC Productions, please visit their WeddingLovely Vendor Guide profile or head straight to their website.

Budgets and Tabletops Demystified by Each and Every Detail (2)

Today we have a lovely styled shoot to share with you, styled three ways to show exactly what you get at three different price points! Here’s wedding planner Brooke Millis of Each & Every Detail to tell us more:

As wedding planners, one of the most common conversations we have with our couples involves budget numbers, their Pinterest board, and a tough conversation about how much this centerpiece or that charger actually costs.  We love working with couples to find a style and look that can be achieved within their budget, but we find that there’s a lot of heartbreak early on due to the fact that price tags are hard to find online.  With this styled shoot, we wanted to show how specific elements can increase or decrease your budget while altering the overall look of your tablescape.  We also included mock budgets for the entire wedding, so that couples can get a sense of how what they see on the tabletop relates to the overall style and cost of their wedding.  These prices are definitely based on our Dallas-Ft Worth market, and will vary from place to place.

Today’s wedding vendor interview is with Natalie Seng of Designed Perfectly Events,  based in Washington, DC. Enjoy!

Tell us a bit about yourself and your company.

Designed Perfectly Events is a full service Wedding & Event planning company servicing the greater DC metro area and beyond. I was working in catering sales but started this company to be more involved and offer my creative ideas and strategic planning advice to my clients on a different level.  What some people may not know about me is that I was actually born and raised in Germany. I am technically half German and half Greek although a lot of people think I am Asian due to my husband’s last name. I was only 19 years old when I took a leap of faith and moved to the US just 4 days after my high school graduation. I love the unknown and new beginnings and was very excited to see what life had in store for me. I am your typical German – practical, organized, stubborn at times yet very honest and direct. I have always had a love for planning events but I never thought I would make it my career. I feel absolutely blessed to call this my job as it certainly doesn’t feel like one. I am excited to get up and go to work each and every day.

We love the unexpected combination elements in today’s gorgeous styled shoot, brought to us by Samantha Robertson  of Bella Event Design & Planning, based in Breckenridge, Colorado! Here’s Samantha to tell us more:

For me, love is the long afternoon shadow that slipped across the veranda of our house, a dusty farm road, the smell of wood smoke from the evening cooking fires and the call of guinea fowl as they began to roost for the night. Growing up, barefoot and free on a farm in Zimbabwe, we were taught from a young age to be conscious of the connection that our feet had to the earth and to identify and appreciate the symbols of life that flowed past us as we walked our path.
