We met Valerie & Doug a year before of the wedding, and we connected right away!
They are so down to earth and fun. They knew the "musts" for their wedding weekend...one of a kind craft cocktails, bespoke details, and a bumpin' party, so with Gitano as their venue and us as their planners, they couldn't go wrong.
This couple was decisive and knew exactly what they wanted making the process fluent, fun, and easy.
For their welcome party we brought in a mezcal bar with a variety of mezcal to taste and interesting cocktail creations - it was a huge hit with everyone!
Moni Junco works magic with flowers and we were blown away by her arrangements and overall decor at Arca & Gitano.
The best moment was when Val & Doug hid from their guests in the back room at Gitano awaiting their first dance. When the doors opened and they emerged for their first dance everyone was marveled.
Throughout the reception guests really enjoyed the cigar roller spot and photo booth displaying their personalized neon sign, such a fun detail.
LM Weddings planned 4 events for the whole weekend. There are a lot of moving pieces but Val & Doug's easy going spirit and our amazing vendors made it seamless. We always felt like part of the group with this crowd.
The craziest planning moment was simply working with the various locations at the same time, especially on the wedding day. Making sure the venues are ready to go and everyone is doing their job, taking care of the families & guests, and also being by the bride & groom - It's an octopus work!
