october 13, 2018. the most magical day of our lives so far.

we were surrounded by our closest friends and family in an intimate loft wedding — our vision was a warm, sparkly evening filled with amazing music, delectable food, and gorgeous greenery and floral.

i had known about maya boettcher for a while — through instagram, of course. she had put on some of the most breathtaking weddings i had ever seen. i got in touch with her pretty much the second we got engaged and we got to know her over dinner and plenty of red wine at st. kilda.

maya runs plum event and the full-service floral and design studio, wildflower (her team just opened up a brick-and-mortar on ingersoll!). we were on the same wavelength instantly and it felt like i was gabbing with an old friend from the start. she puts on everything from 500-people double-six-figure weddings to christmas parties to backyard boho ceremonies. she can do it all, and i knew we couldn’t pull off our day without her. the overall planning was headache-free and the day-of styling and coordination was absolutely seamless.

we met when we were both working at meredith corp, and it was jordan’s idea to do our first look there, right outside of the famed test garden. it was THE most dramatic walk i’ve ever done in my life (and i’m pretty dramatic). it was such a full-circle moment.

i wish i could just step back into this day for even five minutes. it was beyond our wildest dreams and the perfect way to kick off a lifetime of love, laughs, and awkward dance moves.
