JESSICA & MARJERI - Saving THE BEST for last...girls, sisters, partners-in-crime, producers extraordinaire, ladies, I owe the wedding of the century all to you. Screw Kate & William, t&a was the REAL royal wedding! HA! :) We scouted multiple locations, then moved the wedding from September to May, then pulled this all off with such perfection in merely TWO MONTHS?! We will forever be bonded - to produce a televised million dollar E! wedding in two months was quite the accomplishment, to give us our fairy-tale wedding in two months with everything we've been through and most certainly NOT a million dollars -- our limitations with time, budget, work, scheduling etc. -- is a miracle! You supported me as a fellow producer, as a bride but also as a friend when I needed you most. We went through so much these past few months and it is bittersweet, it is over! :( Through it all, you never wavered, never doubted, never failed to deliver what we wanted and many things we didn't even know we wanted and ended up LOVING. You gave us MORE than "rustic chic", you gave us "ballroom in a barn." That's what guests kept saying...were they really standing in the dirt holding a s'mores stick and then looking into a ballroom full of dramatic feasting tables and crystal chandeliers?? EVERYBODY noticed the perfect runners you chose! The way the rosettes matched my dress! People said they felt like they were on a movie set, extras in a film, had we been planning this for years, they'd ask, is this what the barn always looks like, how did we think up of this whole vision, etc. ??!!
No other team could have done this for us, I said it before, you are more than our wedding planners/coordinators, you are our friends - and that is what made the event so heartfelt and extraordinary. The amount of love and care you put into everything was so evident, it was a wedding designed not only by us, but more so especially FOR us...by you. We've all been to countless weddings where guests say "that was the best wedding I've ever been to" and this time, we know they genuinely all mean it. We are lucky, grateful and proud to have worked with you but even MORE proud that you are our friends. Thank you for all the long days, late nights, endless emails, all the time you sacrificed away from your families and kids to tend to Bridezilla and Groomzilla! :)
We were truly blessed by this dream team of vendors you assembled for us, how different the wedding would have been without them?! Many people wondered, why did you bring vendors from LA and San Diego? Why didn't you just choose local SLO vendors? And when I walked down the aisle towards Andrew in the ceremony garden -- and when you, Andrew and I opened those barn doors together for that UNBELIEVABLE REVEAL, I saw it all, soaked it in, and knew - THAT was why. No other team could have made the ranch look that way that day, no other team could have made Andrew, myself and all our family and friends FEEL that special way that day. We thank you and we love you.
