I LOVE Winter Weddings!
What a fantastic event we did Saturday night in Cooperstown, NY at the Otesaga Hotel. For those of you who have never been to this location, it is a BEAUTY!!
The super-organized Christine Wheat gave Stacey and Rich my info when they hit a brick wall trying to get their design on with the florist and rental company they were working with. They had a design in mind and were having trouble finding the right person to pull it all together.
The day we meet, we hit it off. I was really pumped about the wedding because I love working with winter design. Stacey had been put through the ringer with the first few venders she met with. By the end of our meeting she was so excited about her big day again!
In late September when Christine and I went to the property to meet the couple, I almost came undone …this is a STELLAR location! It reminds me a little of The Shining, but in a good way. The couple had to book the entire hotel because it is closed in the winter. Good thing they did, because Mother Nature dropped many inches of blessings on us for the day to make sure the winter wonderland was complete. Bless her cold, cold heart! All four of our drivers were white-knuckling on the back roads leading to the hotel, present company included!. How nice for the guests though to be able to enjoy such a beautiful celebration and then just take the elevators home.
Stacey made these amazing snowflakes for the photo booth that were nothing short of awesome! I cannot imagine how long it took her and her crew to make these, but what an amazing effect for the photo booth. Luke Walker got some amazing images for this couple. This entire event was a blast for us and I loved every second of working with them.
I’d like to send a special thanks
