Alyiah and Mitch Get Married

Welcome to Thinking Out Loud Thursday!  I'm going to share something I'm thinking out loud about and invite you to link up below and do the same.

My side hustle is being a wedding coordinator - and I love it!  Each year I take on two weddings and help the bride and groom navigate through the planning and execution of turning their wedding dreams into reality.  Most of the time, my friend TW travels from his home in Wisconsin a few days before the big event to help.  Thank goodness he was available for this one!

This past weekend we had the honor of working with Alyiah and Mitch.  They were the best couple to work with!  Their devotion to each other, love for their family, and faith in God shown through in everything they did.  

The wedding venue was spectacular!  Sunset Bluffs is located in Washington, Missouri along bluffs that reflect off the lake.  So beautiful!

I'm not going to lie - the wedding day was HOT!  But the bridal party were troopers and never let it get them down.  

Alyiah and Mitch drew from the talents of their family members to help pull off their big day.  One aunt did the florals while another provided the treats for the dessert table.  Mitch's uncle owns a restaurant and closed it Saturday night so he could cater the wedding.  These two are so lucky to have such a wonderful family!

Guests were encouraged to sign a cork.  The corks will later be reminders of who attended their nuptials.  It was an easy idea to pull together.  The corks came from Amazon (HERE).  This is really a great option instead of having a traditional guest book where people sign and it will most likely be hidden in a drawer for the rest of your life.

One of my favorite things to do is put a basket in the ladies room with emergency necessities for the guests to use.  Need a hair pen?  Shout wipe?  Have no fear, it's available in the basket.  Get what you need and hop back out on that dance floor!

I have no doubt that this couple will live happily ever after!  They were a true joy to get to know and I'm excited to see how their future unfolds.

Now it's your turn - what are you thinking out loud about today?  Link up and share!
