Picture this: Taylor and Patrick came to me for help in planning their wedding nearly two full years before there wedding date, making them the record-holders of the "longest planning journey" in Hummingbird history. Lucky for me they are two of the most fun, most amazing, sweetest, all-around-best-people in the entire world. Can I possibly say more nice things about them? I could go all night.
Patrick popped the question during their big trip to Disney World, and upon returning home they immediately set to work in finding the perfect venue. Cue Willowdale Estate. It's an amazing historic mansion located 45 minutes from Boston in Topsfield. For Taylor and Patrick the venue was love at first sight. But, in a disappointing twist of fate, the only dates available would have been far too soon and they had their hearts set on a Fall wedding.
So for approx. two wonderful years I had the distinct pleasure of working closely with them to enjoy the luxury of time in planning. They had the luxury of taking their time in selecting each and every vendor to create the ultimate in perfect wedding days. From hiring a wonderful Boston photographer (and all-around awesome guy) Zev Fisher to the custom wedding dress that Taylor selected, no detail or decision was ever rushed.
And to take things one step further, you can see Taylor and Patrick's intense kindness reflected in their family and friends. This was one of the most fun bridal parties EVER! The love was palpable in every smile, every laugh and every happy tear.
And on an unseasonably warm 70 degree day in early November, Taylor finally, FINALLY tied the knot with Patrick and the entire Hummingbird Team was reduced to a blubbery mess behind the scenes.
Special thanks to Whiled Flowers, Entertainment Specialists and the entire staff of Willowdale for making this special wedding day even more special. And a BIG thanks for our dear friends and former planning clients Ashley and Brian for sending this amazing couple our way!
