2014 Top Memories

2014 was an amazing year full of families who openly welcomed Mon Amie Events, Inc into their lives  to plan their weddings and events.  Some of these couples actually were siblings of others I’ve assisted in the past and it was wonderful to help another family member down the same aisle. Others were new families who were warm and hospitable from the moment we first met.  Regardless of how long I have known them, each of these families are forever […]

Wedding Highlight – Abby and Matt

Abby and Matt, along with their families, are such warm and gracious people!  They wanted their day to be filled with beautiful flowers, family tradition and great food — they had it all! When Matt proposed Abby’s parents immediately took them to Meridian Hills Country Club for a glass of celebratory champagne.  The Club has long held a place of family tradition and celebration, so hosting the wedding reception there seemed natural.  It was the perfect location for their early […]

Wedding Highlight – Lauren and Tom

Lauren and Tom wanted their summer wedding to have a French provincial warmth to their farm wedding, and undoubtedly they achieved this. They have impeccable taste and it shows in every detail; whether it be the clothes they wear, the stores where they shop, or the vacations they take – naturally their wedding was going to be rich in detail, charm and beauty. Just like the two of them. After meeting at Yale during a freshmen picnic for athletes, the […]

Wedding Highlight – Sara and Curtis

Sara and Curtis have known one another forever!  It’s impossible to see a photo of one without the other.   They actually went to the  same elementary school!  A mere 2 weeks before their wedding, they were finally in the same city as each other having survived a 4 year  long-distance relationship because of attending different colleges.   As often as possible one would travel to the other school for football games or mini-vacations.  One semester they even both traveled  to […]

Shelby and Brian are two people you meet and you know will be your friends for life.  They are warm, engaging, smart and funny.  So are their families.  Shelby’s mom has a saying, “Beauty is as beauty does.”  Her entire family is beautiful – inside and out.  Her new son-in-law is as well — and frankly, so are his amazing parents.  They hosted the wedding of Brian and Shelby without a second of hesitation at their home and are among […]

Wedding Rewind

I’m lucky.  I get it.  I get to help couples and families plan an incredible celebration and share in special, intimate moments.  I get to see private, quiet moments with wonderful people.  I get to see things few people get to see, and I get to share in these quiet prayers, whispered conversations and silly conversations just before a bride walks down the aisle with her father and I am humbled to be present in the moment.  I’m not immune […]

Wedding Highlight – Kristen and Tim

Every once in a while as a wedding planner, you get a client who just allows you to run!  This time I got to run in circles  (..and I didn’t mind)  😉 Tim and Kristen were finishing their Masters degrees at Notre Dame when she and I met with her mom for lunch the day before Christmas Eve when I said, “I have an idea…” with a grin across my face.  She said “run with it.” Finally – after having […]

Wedding Highlight – Margo & Bob

From the moment I met Margo and Bob, I was welcomed into their home and their lives with open arms and I knew it was going to an amazing weekend full of celebration, laughter and of course, fantastic Italian food! Their engagement party was only a few days after we first met, and I was asked to attend so I could meet each of their children.  What a stunning family.  The kids (and by this I mean – wonderful, smart, […]

Wedding Highlight – Andrea & Patrick

Every once in a while a couple just touches your soul.  In 14 years of planning weddings I’ve been lucky enough to have this happen to me several times throughout the year.  It’s one of the reasons I am so discerning about the number of clients I take a year, and one of the reasons I interview each client so thoroughly as much as they interview me.  My only regret with Andrea and Patrick — time.  Patrick proposed to Andrea […]
