Destination Wedding Planning – It’s All In A Good Plan

As we look back on our Summer highlights, Brittany Kelly and Alex Teate are definitely a 2013 highlight!  We did almost all of Brittany’s planning remotely and worked to keep 100%  at ease as we pulled together details to make her day a success! 

Quote from Brittany:

“When I was planning my wedding, I lived out of state and actually booked the venue without seeing it in person! The Hazlehurst House is located in my hometown and after seeing the stunning pictures online of the garden wall, I knew that was where I was going to get married. Living out of state made it difficult to plan a wedding alone, so having a wedding planner included in the package made the planning process exciting and stress free!”

As you consider wedding venues, location isn’t an issue if the venue provides full-service planning and has an experienced execution team.  Make sure you do your research on venue services as it relates to these details.  They can make your day flawless or become a source of stress.  Budgeting for a good planning team is a very important allowance in your wedding budget planning process.

Vintage Wedding

Held here at The Hazlehurst House, a historic vintage venue just outside Atlanta, Sydney and Brett’s garden wedding came together beautifully!  Sidney was special to us at so many levels as she worked here as a part of our wedding execution team for a season.  She was our very first bridal attendant, a position we added to the wedding day experience years ago. The bridal attendant doubles as an extra maid of honor for each bride providing double coverage for the day of experience.  She stays in the background paying attention to every need of the entire bridal party and quietly steps in handles the need and fades away again. It is like a personal angle on the day of that no one anticipated being there.

Rainy Nights in Georgia….

Are you dreaming of an outside wedding in Georgia? This summer has caused us all to think about outdoor events!  We never know what the weather is going to do. It seems as if it has rained the whole summer. With planning an outside wedding it is always nice to have a backup plan just in case a pop-up shower occurs right before your walk down the aisle. We’ve been lucky at The Hazlehurst House! The rain always seems to lighten up long enough to say “I do”.

Knock on wood, we hardly ever have to use our back up plan, but we do have one. Brides are allowed to make a call 48 hours before the day of her wedding to either keep her ceremony outside have it inside with our ballroom setup as a “chapel”. A bride doesn’t need to stress over the weather on her wedding day!
