Sara Reynolds Events » A Maryland based events & wedding planner

I am so excited to blog this wedding! It was one of my favorites from the couple to the details to the location! Callie and Kyle were seriously some of the nicest people I have ever worked for & their families were the same way! Their wedding day was a classy mix of details, her dress was gorgeous, and honestly no one felt stressed the entire day–it was wonderful.

Wait, scratch that, there was a little stress. Callie had this gorgeous aisle created with floating candles with rose petals (it was dreamy-take a look below). However, as the guests were exiting the room they just kept breaking! I think guests kept knocking them over–all of a sudden there were massive puddles of water (there was a ridiculous amount of water in these vases) everywhere! Luckily everyone exited the room safely and the staff at the Engineers Club worked quickly to clean it up. However, Callie and Kyle’s first dance more than made up for it! It was something I was looking forward to all day–they danced to the same song that BOTH of their parents had danced to for their first dances! How meaningful is that?!

Callie and Kyle-thank you for having a gorgeous wedding day and for allowing me to be a part of it!

For me this was a no brainer, this vendor is so easy to recommend to anyone reading this blog. I truly haven’t found a more experienced, responsive, and amazing hair and make-up artist like Ashley. She owns Glam Bridal Beauty and sits high on my recommended vendor list. I asked her to answer a few questions for me, check out her answers below!

What is your favorite part about your job? 
While my all time fav part of Glam is to make a Bride look & feel beautiful on her Wedding Day, I also LOVE getting to know their story, the magic of how they met, everything Bridal. I love that moment when the Bride looks in the mirror and gasps at her beauty. I love the moment when the Bridal party Ooh’s and Ahh’s at the Bride’s finished H&MU. I love the moment when I get a review from a Bride who is still basking at her Bridal H&MU Beauty. I have worked with the BEST Brides in the world.

What is one piece of advice you would give to a bride and groom as they are planning their wedding? 

Enjoy every moment! Trust your professionals. Read Reviews! Hair & Makeup are a vital part of your Perfect Day. You do not want to go cheap on H&MU while splurging on photography – they work together & it is important to look and feel the most Glam on your Wedding Day – Soft & Natural, Vintage Romantic, High Glam – whatever your look, it should be flawless in person & in photos!

How can we (hair & make-up and wedding planners) work better together?

One thing I absolutely appreciate about Sara Reynolds Events is that she trusts Glam & the timelines we give for H&MU services. She does not question or doubt our time frames, nor does she pressure or stress our Glam Team at the end about time. She ensures that we have everything that we need, and she is SO organized! I have worked many Weddings with her and I am so impressed with how kind she is to the vendors, and the level of calm that she brings to each Wedding Day I have worked “with” her! Sara is A+ in my book. Love working with her, I know you will too! (Shameless plug) 😉

At the end of May I was back at one of my favorite venues-Star Bright Farm. It is hard to describe this venue if you haven’t visited. They are only allowing 10 weddings a year at their property so each wedding is so unique and special. The venue owners truly become your friends during the planning process & it is not unheard of for the bride and groom to stay up well into 3am chatting with them after their wedding is over. Your wedding day always feels like you are getting married on an old friend’s property.

Lisa and Mike were literally my most relaxed bride and groom. Lisa just wanted to remember her dress, license, and rings-the rest of the day she just kept saying “that is why you are there, but honestly, I don’t care because I will be married to my best friend”. This is the best mindset to have about the wedding day. True love will always win over florals or napkins or even drink selections. But you know what was the total winner of this wedding day? The food. Lisa works at The Corner Pantry and they catered the wedding. My assistant and I are still talking about the food from this wedding. It was literally the best food I have ever eaten. Come check out Lisa and Mike’s perfect wedding day!

Allison and Aaron are set to be married in a beautiful waterfront ceremony at the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club in August. Sadly, Boris, their French Bulldog will not be able to make an appearance on their wedding day so we made sure he made an appearance here!

I am so excited to work with these two! For now, get to know their love story and keep an eye out for their wedding post!

How did you two meet? 

Aaron and I were introduced by a mutual friend who worked with Aaron. She thought we would be a great match and showed Aaron my Facebook at work. The rest is history! She is also going to officiate our wedding 🙂

How did he propose? 

Aaron proposed at our favorite hiking trail trail in Shenandoah, Compton’s peak. He had known for a year since the last time we had been there that he was going to propose at that spot. Throughout the year, we visited that same overlook with both set’s of our parents when they came down to visit, and have photos to document all of our trips up there that year, leading up the engagement!

What has been your favorite part of wedding planning? 

My favorite part of wedding planning has all of the little special details. It’s brought me back to little notes between us, locations that are special to us, and all the little nuances that make our relationship OURS. You don’t realize until you start customizing, how many moments you forget about that you will eventually want to incorporate into your day (for example, our tables are all street names of the special places in our lives).

What is one piece of advice you can give to a bride planning her wedding right now? 

The best advice I would give is to follow your gut and personalize the things that make YOU happy. If you step back and remember its your day, all of those little ideas you pinned or circled in a magazine will turn into something that is uniquely yours as a couple. Whether it’s DIY, or something off Etsy, if it means something to you, it will mean something to your guests, too.

What are you most looking forward to about your wedding day?

I am most looking forward to putting my feet up in our hotel room after the wedding, and eating cheesecake/drinking champagne with my new husband 🙂

Is it wrong that I have been looking forward to this wedding since August of 2015 even though Ally and Nick didn’t get engaged until 2016? You see, Ally is the younger sister to Gary; the dapper groom in this slam dunk of a wedding from 2015. Ally’s mother told me during one of our meetings that at the end of Kelly and Gary’s wedding Ally knew she would be hiring me for her wedding. Do you want to know the best compliment I have ever received? That one, right there.

Ally and Nick were an absolute dream to work with for their wedding! Nothing phased them! Ally truly was the most chill bride. Both Ally and her mom have such great sense of style so I knew this wedding day would be gorgeous. They.did.not.disappoint. Chic gown, lush greenery florals, pops of blue and greek key pattern. I think the best part of this wedding day was the family. I love them all! I actually told Ally’s parents to have more children so I could plan their weddings too. (Note: they said no) I was more than a little sad to say “goodbye” to the Kiley’s. Looks like I will just have to invite myself over for lunch one day! 😉
