With the holidays coming into full swing and a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner last night with family, I was reflecting upon what I have been thankful this year. Looking across the dinner table during the couple of thanksgiving dinners I have eaten this weekend, I know how thankful I am for my happy and healthy family, the people I love, a great and kind man in my life, parents with great stories that make you laugh until your side hurts, and a really great kid (I will get to that a little later in my post). I am also thankful for the wonderful opportunities being a wedding planner provides me. I get to be a part of one of the most significant days in a person’s life… not just as a guest, but as an instrumental part of the joy, the creation, the private and unseen moments that make up a wedding day. Over brunch this past weekend I was chatting with another wonderful Madison wedding planner about how fantastic that last moment before she walks down the aisle is, how special and how quick it goes by, and how for me that moment is suspended in time. So thank you to all my sweet couples. I am so grateful to be a part of your day, a moment in your life that is the start to so many other great moments…

So as I reflect and think back, I thought it would be fun to share special moments that I have had at your weddings this year… enjoy!

and then there is Thad… my great kid! Every moment of every day thankful for him. He helps at every wedding. Hauling things, lifting things, helping the bartenders carry heavy things… and sometimes he steps in when the bride’s brother can’t make it, he makes sure she has some brotherly love.

Happy Thanksgiving.

Hi! 

Welcome to the LHE blog and my place to tell my couples' love stories and share random thoughts. A bit about me...I love weddings. I love my clients. I love comfy shoes and jeans. I am obsessed with EOS lipbalm. I talk too much about my kid. I drink way too much coffee. Often my clients and I become great friends, and mostly...I am so excited that you stopped by. 

My absolute joy in being a wedding planner comes from celebrating with you during your most important moments. 

So let's have some coffee & chat!
