La Salle Street Church + Warwick Allerton
Our Story — When Couple + Planner Meet
Every once in awhile, I’ll get a phone call from a mother of the bride or the groom, inquiring about my services. I love this so much because it shows to me just how excited mom is about her daughter/son’s wedding and how important it is to her that the day is as smooth as possible for the couple. When Katie’s mom called me about working together, I have to admit that I was a little more excited than usual. Reason being, the couple would be hosting their wedding at the very same place that I was going to be saying “I Do” at in just a few short weeks — the Warwick Allerton. It was hard to deny that the timing of talking with Katie’s mom was perfect and we knew that we were meant to be!
The flower petals were a surprise that Katie’s mom, Lorene, and I planned (kinda) together. Mom had mentioned that she really wanted to throw petals outside of the church after the ceremony. Due to timing and a few other factors, we just didn’t think we could make it work. I knew how important it was to Katie’s mom, though, so on my way into the city on the wedding day, I stopped and got a dozen white roses. During the ceremony, I got the petals ready and surprised Lorene with them so that she, in turn, could surprise the bride, Katie. I’m so glad that we did — look at the smile on Katie’s face!
