Christening 10.3.10

I was lucky enough to be asked to do a complete set up for a vendor friend's family..I couldn't say no! This Christening was over the top and given with love for a beautiful baby girl. I brought in a full team of 4 for this set up including my parents and my supportive husband...it was a great day of bonding! Our client came up with this amazing room design, and our job was to execute their vision. We had 4 different tablescapes to set up on 19 tabletops, 6 high tops, 200 chair covers to tie, 200 chargers, folded napkins and favors to put out and a "sweet table" to help create along with a few more things on our "TO DO" list.

This event was for such a special family. I have always loved working with them, and she has taught me so much over the past few years, but working with her on this event, reinforced how important your friends and family are and how vendors and clients become like family.

Thank you girls for trusting me with this important event!! Love you! xxoo, Jill

Jessica + Ian 10.2.10

I was looking forward to Jessica and Ian's wedding for over a year! We grew into great friends over the year that we worked together and I hope that all of our meetings over Raspberry tea were as fun for Jessica as they were for me!!

Their wedding was a classic and elegant Fall wedding. Jessica incorporated so many details that flowed together seamlessly to create the wedding of her dreams- the details started the moment the guests walked into church for the ceremony and continued through the evening.

Jessica and Ian's Ceremony was one of my favorite ceremonies of the year. The second the bride starts her walk down the aisle...chills run up my arms and of course tears begin... Jessica surprised Ian with a Bagpiper to lead them out of the church during their processional...so of course I cried twice during this ceremony!

The reception was perfect..it was just what we all envisioned it would be. The way every detail came together really made me proud that Simplicity was there to share this day!

The flowers arriving from The Parsonage...they are always beautiful and amazing

The guests were greeted by this Fall tablescape...complete with vintage handkerchiefs

The Reception was full of candlelight and romance

Thank you Jessica and Ian for letting us be a part of your day! Now time for some mac and cheese in Clarkston! xxoo Jill
