Barn There Done That!

Ok, I just have to brag a little bit. I was hired to do a rehearsal dinner for a young bride and groom. They wanted the dinner in this barn (see before pictures). We used the Dutch Barn in Greer, SC. It is a big old barn, very rough, but rented often for parties. As you can see by the before pictures, it was a lot of work getting it ready. Willrich Bridal, Dave McMillan, the florist, and Shane of Good Life Catering worked all day the day before, cleaning and setting up.

For those of you that think being a wedding planner is all romantic and beautiful, let me clue you, it’s not. I was on my hands and knees cleaning toilets, scrubbing sinks and even sweeping out snake skins (gross!) My team was also standing outside parking cars in the freezing cold during the actual event. I never saw JLo do that.

On the actual day of the event we started early again, putting all the flowers in place. It was a lot of hard work but it turned out wonderful. Everyone couldn’t stop talking about how great it looked. Good Life Catering created a “shabby chic” BBQ for 150 people that was just delicious. We had one of the top blue grass bands in the nation Steep Canyon Rangers (unbelievably great!!) as the entertainment. The groom is a big banjo player and he got to play with them, he was beyond thrilled. We had a huge banjo cake as the groom’s cake provided by Kathy And Company.

I was really proud of how it all turned out and the bridal couple was really happy and that’s what counts.

The transformation is beautiful! You should be so proud of you and your team.

Oh. And at my Saturday's wedding...I was mopping up a leaky keg underneath the bartender's feet so she wouldn't slip AND bussing tables. I never saw J.Lo do that either!
