I couldn’t imagine Sean & Brittany having a more beautiful reception. Tazer Valley Farms is one of the best wedding venues I have worked for anyone looking to have a rustic, Northwest wedding. And Brittany did a lot of the decor herself – and it fit both her vision and the venue. Kudos to her – that isn’t an easy task.
Sean & Brittany had been together for over ten years, but they had actually known each other for much longer. Being able to narrate their Love Story was one of my favorite memories from this wedding, as I got to tell the story of the history of how these two met as little kids and neighbors all the way to Sean’s proposal. It was a beautiful story of heartbreak and love, and it’s one of my favorite presentations to perform at a wedding reception. It requires a combination of the right story, clients that are willing to open themselves up emotionally, and a talented storyteller. Fortunately, we had all three and it was an unforgettable moment – I’ll never forget the connection I felt to Sean & Brittany, but also the connection I felt to family and friends who got a very intimate look into their lives.
I also provided Sean & Brittany with some really cool production options. During the cocktail period, a photo montage of Sean & Brittany played on an LED TV that I had produced. Whenever I produce a cocktail montage, I encourage my clients to get as many photos of themselves with their friends because it leads to some great ice breakers. For their first dance inside the barn, I designed a monogram light from their logo, which made for a really cool First Dance photo. Without a doubt, I will be using this photo on my website and in my consultation presentation for years to come. Thank you Dana for capturing it!
Thank you Sean & Brittany for having me as a part of your day – it was a wonderful, interactive, fun and elegant wedding. You are great people who I am honored to call friends. I wish you both a lifetime of success and good fortune!
