We met Valerie, Matthew, and Valerie's parents over coffee at Panera. Immediately, we loved the family! The mom was so happy and energetic. You could tell that she was just thrilled that Valerie and Matthew were getting married. They were very intent on being sure that the wedding was a party. One with fantastic food, good music, and dancing. We were their 4th wedding planner interview so they were pros asking us all the questions that we tell brides to ask their vendors. We were so happy when they contacted us shortly after to say that they had decided to book us. We do have to thank Mitchell's Catering. Valerie asked David who they would hire in the area (not telling him who they had interviewed) and he said us!
It was our first Jewish wedding so we brushed up on all the ceremonies and traditions. We actually had another booked for the following fall and had learned a lot already. I love traditions. I love that Valerie and Matthew were doing the same thing that their parents did, their grandparents, and their relatives from 100s of years ago. It was so neat being a part of their family for a short while and being able to experience all the great traditions the Jewish faith has to offer.
No more rambling..here are some pictures from their fabulous wedding!

It was such a great wedding and went off perfectly. With Mitchell's, you can't go wrong! The food was to- die-for and the guests could not stop raving about the food, flowers, the band, and how much fun everyone was having. Thanks Valerie and Matt for letting us be a part of your big day, we had a great time!
