This blog post has been a long time coming! With the start of 2016, I want to relive some of the wonderful weddings I had the honor of being part of in 2015. And what better way to start it off then with featuring one of my favorite couples to work with! These two were the sweetest, most charming guys with an incredibly fun and warm group of friends and family. Their wedding was SUCH a blast and I’m so excited to finally share the photos of their big day at Lighthouse Point Park!
The wedding ceremony kicked off at Christ Church in New Haven and then guests were transported to the amazing Lighthouse Point Park (also in New Haven) for the wedding reception complete with cocktails, costumes and the infamous historical carousel, which guests enjoyed all night long!
From the couple in regards to working with This Modern Love Events;
“Martine is the BEST. We really cannot recommend her highly enough. I was initially skeptical of the wedding planner thing, but I have to say that every meeting we had with her she thought of something that we had not or suggested a fix to a problem that we never would have thought of. It was crucial to have her input throughout the process. Also, setting up meetings with her was a great way to keep ourselves on schedule. I almost feel like I need to have two reviews here though because, while her services were valuable during the long-term planning and in the months leading up to the wedding, her help in the last few weeks before the wedding and her day-of services were a whole other level of awesomeness.
She is like a machine! She kept track of so many details and was four steps ahead of everyone and everything. Our actual wedding day went off without any problems, and I really believe it was primarily due to Martine’s help and guidance on the day of. We were able to just sit back and experience the day. It’s like having a genie on hand that you can just ask to go deal with some problem that’s developing or some scheduling issue that has arisen. Really great stuff. I should add in all of this that Martine’s really a pleasure to work with. She’s not overbearing or crazy, even when she’s organizing and directing all this stuff. That being said, she was also willing to play bad cop with vendors when necessary, which I am thankful for because I am not super good at that. But with us, we always felt like she was on our team – or maybe a calm and wise coach for our team. We really highly recommend Martine for whatever wedding or event you need help with. She is the real deal.”
