Planning an Outdoor Wedding? Prepare for Unpredictable Weather and Challenges

Engaged couples planning an outdoor wedding and reception are aware of the uncontrollable weather conditions that may occur, which has been evident here in Georgia as of late. Sometimes, the visions of a beautiful outdoor wedding comes to life, while other times Mother Nature takes her course. In this case, Mother Nature had the upper hand.

Our team arrived to set-up for an outdoor wedding and reception at Lake Lanier on a recent gloomy Saturday.  With the advisement of the couple, set-up was to progress although evening pop-up storms had been the norm for the past week.  Unfortunately, this evening was no different.  An aggressive storm bombarded the wedding and reception site our team had  designed, just thirty minutes before our bride was scheduled to walk down the aisle.  We were fortunate though,  to have an experienced and fast-acting team on site to jump in and revive the beautiful wedding ceremony and reception design inside another venue.   Here are the before and after pictures from this day.

Here is an email that we received from the mother-of-the-groom, thanking us for our dedication to making her daughter's wedding a success through the challenges that we faced. 
Hi Tiffany,

I wanted to send a quick note to tell you how much I enjoyed working with you.   It was an amazing weekend overall!

And I have to apologize for my  "frantic" phone call... I had no idea of the destruction at the time....and the last thing you needed was to hear from me when you were working like mad to stage the whole venue in the hotel!!!

As I told you before, Friday night was perfect!  You and your team did just a beautiful job of creating that magical setting on the pier!! I would not have changed a thing!    So thank you!!   I am sure the photographer got incredible photos.    And the guitarist was fabulous...again perfect music for the setting and what a nice guy!!!

Not sure our paths will pass again but you were great!   It's not always easy finding someone who "gets" what it is you want to  accomplish but you did.   So, I thank you for that!

Have a wonderful summer.
