What A Weekend!

Tent with our custom event decor installed

Our season has begun! This past Saturday was the kick off to our wedding season with newlyweds Helena and Mike at Chapin's Fish n Chips. Thankfully, the weather held out and the sun made its first appearance in weeks. The Utilitarian Church in Barnstable was overflowing with guests as they watched the beautiful bride and groom join together in marriage. The adorable flower girls passed white chocolate lollipops to all of the departing guests after the ceremony. The guests and newlyweds then made their way over to Chapin's for cocktail hour and the reception. Delicious passed and stationary apps were available for everyone, while the guests socialized and listened to soft music. The sun was shining all throughout dinner and allowed the guests to celebrate outside. Everyone danced the night away and celebrated with Helena and Mike as they began this new chapter in their lives. Some of the guests commented that it was the "best wedding I've ever been to!" and Helena quoted, "Thank you for all the big and small touches you added to contribute to that. Best part for me was to say  'go ask Connie' whenever someone bugged me about something. Thank you for a beautiful day-truly a dream for us".
 It was a pleasure working with both of them and we wish nothing but happiness to them in their beautiful future together!Thank you to all of our wonderful vendors and Chapin's for a beautiful event. More pictures are to come!

New and Upcoming

The Perfect Plan is very busy gearing up for our rehearsal on Friday night and wedding preparations for Saturday's wedding at Chapins Fish n Chips.  Sunday we are doing the event design and setup for the 3rd Annual Chapins Fundraiser to help fight cancer.  We love giving back and are donating our time and talents for this fantastic cause.  We have been very busy in the office, my intern Savannah will finish up her commited hours this week and has done such a fantastic job, we are bringing her on as an assistant for a few events this season.  Thank goodness my Senior Planner, Kelly returns this week to start working, she is super excited and ready to jump in on all the action at the office.  I have been busy overseeing all the weddings and planning we are doing.  We have picked up several weddings still for this year in the past week and are busy helping our valued clients find the perfect vendors for their events. 
In addition to the hustle and bustle in the office, I have been in the field exploring new venues perfect for weddings, happy to say we have landed some amazing properties, all unique and exceptional.  We have so many fantastic venue options available for our clients.  Our newest find, is one that reflects true Cape Cod, a very private Cranberry bog with beach access for that waterfront ceremony.  Watch our blog for photos of some of these new and amazing offerings for your perfect wedding location!
We still have a few choice dates available for this year, and Kelly, my Senior Planner is available as well.
