It's not everyday you get married. Or get bed bugs. Or have to move with such short notice. Or experience all three at the same time.
Meet Jackie + Gregg… two rebels who got thrown some serious curve balls, but those didn't stand a chance against their sense of humor through it all. These two kept it all in perspective in the midst of the crazy life events thrown their way leading up to their love party. They loved through it. They laughed [and probably cried too] through it. They were vulnerable about what was hard. Their partnership made us proud - to know we were bringing all their family and friends to celebrate these two amazing people and their union. People think being an event planner is glamorous because of the party details but to us, it's the people details. Getting to know people with such vibrancy for life and each other and rolling with the punches is what this industry should be all about. Jackie + Gregg and their obvious-I-am-just-so-in-awe-of-you kinda love reminded us of this throughout our coordination process.
But the best part of it all? Hard to pick! Maybe the fact that we’ve never seen a dance floor this full for 4 hours (we’re pretty sure there wasn't even a bathroom break for them or their friends). They came to DANCE! Or, was it the llamas on top of their cream cheese cake which they ate with such abandon - we want that kind of enthusiasm at ALL our love-parties now. Yes, maybe the llamas. But mostly the love. SO MUCH LOVE in that Hudson Valley air. Cheers to you, J+G!
