happy holidays {from favor me events}

As I am finishing up a few last things here before the holidays, I wanted to wish everyone a Very Merry Christmas and Holiday Season.

Thank you to all of the wonderful vendors, clients, friends and family that have made 2011 a success here at Favor Me Events. Here's to 2012!!! Can not wait to see what great things it has in store for all us! I have a feeling it's going to be pretty darn great!

I sent out cards this year {designed my the truly amazing friend and colleague, Stephanie Huxter from Inspire Design Studio}, but apparently the post office decided to only deliver a in case you did not receive yours, here ya go!

jess and cam {tie the knot} mint museum uptown

Where to begin? Well, I will admit that I am pretty bummed that Jess and Cam's wedding has now come and gone. We had such a great time planning the wedding that I miss our daily emails and frequent meetings.

You may remember this hilarious duo from their e-session, here.

Jess and Cam tied the knot on October 22nd at First United Methodist and then moved the party to the Mint Museum Uptown. And what a beautiful Fall night it was to use that amazing terrace for a cocktail party!

Nothing was "usual" about this wedding- even down to the set up. Jess and Cam decided on modern long king's tables for the reception, which were placed on a slant (as opposed to traditional round tables). As well,  a square bistro table was used for their sweetheart table.

Please enjoy some photos from their wedding day, courtesy of Kristin Byrum Photography.

and just one more reason to love this couple...

robin and shawn {tie the knot} victorian crow's nest

When Robin and I originally met for consultation back in January, I knew that day at Panera that we would be a great fit. We both share the love of a great sale and old movies!

She was just full of ideas and had a stack of magazines with pages dog-eared and labeled for me to see {Robin looooves her magazines!}. As well, she was carrying a framed photo of her Aunt at prom-- the inspiration behind her and Shawn's 1950s wedding {see if you can spot the photo of her Aunt below in the photos. We made sure to incorporate it in to the wedding}...

Speaking of Shawn, if you haven't already done so- please check out their engagement session and story here. As well, their wedding video can be seen here.

Robin and Shawn tied the knot in an outdoor ceremony on October 29th at the Victorian Crow's Nest under crystal blue skies and brilliant orange leaves. The day was simply gorgeous!

The party was then moved inside to the ballroom, which was transformed in to a Soda Pop Shoppe- complete with an authentic 1950s photo booth, lavish candy station {complete with whoppie pies!} and gourmet sodas.

Please enjoy some {ok, maybe more than some...there are just too many not to share!} photos from their day- courtesy of Caroline Ghetes Photography.

Thank you to all of the amazing vendors that made this wedding a success!

Thank you again, Robin and Shawn for allowing me to be a part of your special day. Lots of love to you both!

laura and dale {engagement session}

Happy Monday!

Meet Favor Me Event's couple, Laura and Dale!

These two may look a little familiar because they have already graced the FME blog once before with their "just because" session- which can be seen here.

Laura and Dale met years ago while they were both still in school in their hometown of Latrobe, Pennsylvania. After being friends for years, the couple decided to begin dating. Clearly- this was a great decision as they are set to be married in July!

The couple will have both their ceremony and reception at The Point Lake and Golf Club- also where they chose to have some of their engagement photos taken. Fitting for these golf enthusiasts! The second location was shot at Carrigan Farms.

Please enjoy the photos taken by the talented Matt and Lelie Keener of Elizabeth Scott Photography!

with love.
