Happy Wedding Wednesday! It's been a hot minute since I shared a wedding with you all on an actual Wednesday! It's busy season here at Katie O' Weddings and Events, but we're really getting into the swing of things and I couldn't be happier about it!

Today I'm featuring an awesome couple who were married in 2012, Lydia and Jaan, over in Lenox, Massachusetts. Lydia and Jaan's wedding is a perfect example of why you should seriously consider hiring a wedding planner. The night before their wedding we had a change of venue! OMG. It was crazy and stressful (some might say crazy stressful), but the Katie O' Wedding and Events team was there to make sure it all ran smoothly, even if it wasn't according to plan! Check out their day below!

I love this image, starting off the day with Lydia and her girls…Eric Limon Photography did an AMAZING job!


And ready to go in her dress…


Gorgeous! I LOVED Lydia's gown.


Such a fun crew!


 Time to get married…Lydia walked down the aisle with her Mom and Dad.


And they're married! Yay!



Such amazing details (And, hey, there's me in the mix, too)! Lydia and Jaan had a natural / organic feel to their decor with lots of burlap and jute. They made it visually interesting by using a myriad of flowers–colors, sizes, etc. and was tied together with hints of silver and mercury glass. Designer Ariella Chezar did a fantastic job!

Lydia and Jaan's original wedding venue didn't work out, but they ended up at the Lenox Public Library…not too shabby!


Even though the wedding day did not go as we originally planned (having spent 18 months providing full service to this client)…in the end it was absolutely perfect.  

Thoughts from Lydia on her day and the KOWE team:

Katie O’ was a pleasure to work with from the very beginning, but her professionalism and skillfulness really shone when we had a last minute catastrophe. I believe we gave Katie O’ and her team one of the greatest challenges they’ll ever face! After a year of careful planning, our venue informed us on Friday afternoon that we would not be able to hold our wedding there on Saturday. The entire weekend was supposed to take place at a beautiful estate, and the last minute cancellation meant everything had to change. Katie and her team got to work immediately on finding us new locations, all the while remaining calm, warm, and reassuring. Because we had Katie working on our behalf, we were able to relax and be with our guests. It wasn’t until 10:00pm on Friday evening that they were able to find us a place to hold the wedding, as most venues were already booked, but it was perfect. Not only were they able to find us locations for the wedding, reception and other events of the weekend, they were able to communicate expertly with all of our vendors, so that our wedding weekend actually went very smoothly. We were so impressed, and are forever grateful to Katie and her team for all they did to get us married despite the last-minute setbacks. It couldn’t have been more beautiful.
