Our throwback Thursday for this week is from a wedding a few years ago when consultants Shawn and Emily traveled to Statesville, North Carolina. This may be a #tbt but our commitment and dedication to our brides hasn’t waivered, we continue to go above and beyond to make each clients special day one to remember!
Weddings, parties and celebrations don’t just happen! A lot goes on behind the scenes. Enjoy a few photos of Shawn and Emily in action at Kristin and Todd’s wedding in Statesville, North Carolina. We had the pleasure of working with Brian Mullins Photography for this wedding. Shawn Schindler Events has always admired Brian’s work but this was our first times actually working together. Since this wedding a few years ago we have had the pleasure of working with Brian on some of our biggest events yet!
Here Shawn is pinning a flower on our groom, Todd, and the rest of the guys in the wedding party. This is a moment Shawn still loves; we can’t have flowers out of place for photos!
I love this photo; children attendants can add so much to the overall feel of the ceremony. After this little guy’s dad went down the aisle, he decided he wanted to go with dad, not wait for his turn. We always tell our couples we are experienced with children and if there are issues prior to sending them down the aisle, we will take care of them. After trying to get this little one to wait his turn and sending the wedding party down the aisle at the same time, I can honestly say I am out of practice with 18 month old “wiggle worms” and very thankful for my assistant!
What a unique signature board, you actually etch the signatures in the matting with a special pen. We take items like this from our clients weeks prior to the event so they don’t have to worry about them getting there!
Cutting the cake; this is not normally the responsibility of the our staff. However, we always do whatever it takes to make the event a wonderful experience for all. Kristin had asked her aunts to cut the cake and they were nervous about not knowing the proper way to cut a wedding cake so that you get the number of serving needed. So, give us some gloves and we can take care of it!
We are constantly learning and sharping our skills. Thanks to Mrs. Veda, one of our favorite alterations specialist, for sharing this interesting technique for lifting the hem of the gown when the bride changes into flats!
I have said it before, we love what we do and have fun doing it. Thanks to Brian Mullins and Ginger for such great photos and helping us make Kristin and Todd’s wedding special!
