Real Wedding | Micaela + Turner

I will never forget the day when an Oklahoma area code number appeared on my phone.

MOB: “I’m looking for a planner. My daughter is in school and I am miles away from her!! I need someone there to help with the stress of pulling all this together.”

ME: “Well, I’m your girl!”

Mother of bride, Kristal, and I hit it off instantly. I understood her stress and want for her daughter to have the day she had always dreamed of.

Micaela (Bride), Turner (Groom), and Kristal (MOB) will always have a special place in my heart. They were one of the first Full Planning couples that I had booked since I started this business on my own. This couple and family became more than just my clients, but my friends who I got to chat with weekly about fun details coming together. They saw the value in booking a planner, and were always so appreciative of me - it made me want the absolute best for them and nothing less! Beautiful, loving, and full of life people. Boy, do I love my job.

Now a little bit about the biggest day of Micaela and Turner’s life. The two sweethearts were married at Blue Haven Barn and Gardens. This is a beautiful modern and elegant barn in Sioux Falls, SD that complimented Micaela’s style. Mixing all metals, with rose gold being the showcase metallic, accented with amethyst purple hues, and toned with ivory hints. Other than Turner, rose gold was a true love in the planning process. The color was shown in the engagement ring, champagne flutes, and even the guest book pens.

Now, being a lover of detail, I still believe the wedding day is all about starting the forever with the person you love most. Details are just a sprinkle on top of it all. But I have to say, the napkin fold, the tea lights lit, and the fluff of the dress are all little pieces of what makes the memory that this family will always carry with them.

Sometimes I can’t get over that my job consists of making dreams come true and bringing people together for the love of love. Cheesy yes, but oh so true.
