Making it Matthews executed an amazing wedding day for my daughter and her husband. If you’re like me, you might be wondering why anyone “needs” a company like MiM…right? I mean, I have actually gone to and been in a number of weddings. I even planned my own wedding not too long ago! But when Kate from our venue started to really outline the amount of “stuff” I’d likely be buying, accumulating, hauling, setting up, taking down, and then STORING I started to think that maybe I should give MiM a call. That’s when I realized that there is a way to combine the dreamy elements that we love on Pinterest with MiM’s collection of all the rest of the stuff that I would have to shop for, buy, store, haul, set up, take down, and then store or sell again. It started to seem crazy NOT to use MiM. I asked family members and friends about my own wedding and really calculated the amount of time, energy money, and work EVERYone seemed to put into my wedding that I never really accounted for. I was always grateful, but was I really willing to ask for THAT much help for my daughter? NO WAY. MiM indulged Zoe’s desires for a specific vision to be the reality for the day. They also incorporated the creative elements that we deemed special even if they were a little quirky or hard to imagine at times. MiM always remained supportive and helpful every step of the way. Trisha guided us through uncharted territory with grace and Camilla offered reassurance with confidence at all the right times. 110% professionals!
My absolute favorite part of the experience, though, was the day of. Trisha was always 10 steps ahead. I couldn’t believe how she always knew where my stuff was before I knew it! Then, Camilla offered the most profound advice this momma could ask for on one of the most important days of my life. I’m confident it was nothing short of divine intervention that caused her to get me to slow down and absorb this ever so important milestone before it was gone. I remember just stopping to actually look around the room. It took my breath away. And at the end of the night? I didn’t have to pack or clean up! I actually left on the party bus just like the other guests!
I learned that hiring a planner doesn’t take the creativity out of the event. It actually allows you the time to enjoy the creative process! I have one more daughter. She’s only 12, so I’ve got some time. But you can be sure MiM will get my call when the time comes to plan another wedding. I just hope they pick up the phone when they see my name on the other side. 😉
