Hey, friends! I have a cool post to share with you today–we're throwing it back to 2010 to talk about Elisabeth and Jon's wedding day at the Inn at Erlowest in Lake George! I first met up with Elisabeth in early 2010; she was recently engaged and she and Jon had made some major wedding decisions already, but was looking for some help with the day-of the wedding. At that time, KOWE was still in its infancy and I didn't offer any day-of coordination. Elisabeth and I immediately hit it off and I was really hoping that she and her fiance would hire KOWE!

Alas, Elisabeth and Jon didn't need full service planning. Fast forward to July of 2010 and I was still thinking about my conversation with Elisabeth; I reassessed my business model and thought, “Maybe I SHOULD offer a day-of coordination package!” So I called Elisabeth and Jon and pitched the idea to them and they said yes! Hence, the “One Special Day” package was born.

Elisabeth and Jon were married October 16, 2010 (yay, 3 years yesterday!) at the Diamond Point Community Church with their reception at the Inn at Erlowest. They had one of my most favorite ceremonies to date, too–it was very personal and very moving; not a dry eye in the house!

How amazing is the Diamond Point Community Church? It dates back to the 19th century! I LOVED the wreath on the church door by Renaissance Floral Design.

Elisabeth Jon 0073Alayne and her crew from Make Me Fabulous were on the scene, too.

Elisabeth Jon 0052Some details…the ring bearer bowl was engraved with a lyric from the song that played during their ceremony. It read, “the only truth I know is you.”

Elisabethjon 0672 EditThe inside of the Diamond Point Community Church–so quaint.

Elisabethjon 0719 EditJon and Elisabeth used Horsin' Around Trolley out of Saratoga to get them to and from the church and then the trolley transported guests from their hotel in the village to Erlowest so no one had to drive. Transportation is a must!

You know me and forehead kisses…Elisabeth's beautful gown was by Cymbeline from Something Bleu Bridal.

Elisabeth Jon 0856 Some detail decor shots! Elisabeth's Mom, Sue, found all of the white “ghost” pumpkins and their favors were tulip bulbs! This former Tulip Queen approved! 228423 10150169299972414 5856412 N

Elisabethjon 1073Getting ready to be introduced for the first time as Mr. and Mrs. Draper and walking in to the theme from the show “Mad Men.” Awesome.

Elisabethjon 1144Fun fact, this was the first wedding that senior coordinator, Megan, worked with me on back when she was my intern! Love you, Megan!

I know I say this a lot, but it's so awesome to look back and relive these days! I'm also starting to get ideas for my own wedding, too! Hope you enjoyed this Throwback Thursday anniversary edition! What was your favorite wedding planning memory? Let me know in the comments!
