December 24, 2012 | Las Vegas Wedding Planner
About two months before the wedding date, owner/photographer Jodi from
j.anne Photography posted about Eden, a mother of three children with cerebral palsy, who recently got engaged. I read on about how she has finally found the man who truly loves her and her children as his own. Eden needed some assistance with her wedding, and after reading her story, I immediately volunteered as Eden & Tony’s Wedding Planner. I was able to help gather a few other vendors to participate in a good cause.
Their good friends, Dan & Mary McElhattan, offered their house and backyard as the venue. Bonnie from Accents Events provided catering and all rental items. Eden & Tony wanted an “open reception”, and as a Wedding Planner, I was a bit nervous not having a confirmed number of guests attending. Luckily, Bonnie’s assistant was able to make a couple of grocery store runs to accommodate the constant flow of arriving guests. Videographers from Light Source Films were awesome in capturing all the intimate and joyous moments throughout the day. DJ Joey D knew exactly the right songs to play and kept the party going for hours!
I can’t thank my fellow vendors enough for stepping-up! Truly grateful! Everyone went beyond their call of duty that resulted in a very beautiful Christmas Eve backyard wedding filled with love, family and good friends. Thank you, Eden & Tony, for allowing us to be a part of your special day!
