Kristen + Josh | Real Weddings| Belle Soiree Events, New Orleans Wedding Planner

Good morning ladies and gents!

Next up on the blog is Kristen and Josh! I met Kristen almost a year out from her wedding day and let me tell you- this girl was on the BALL! I was a little shocked at how organized she was and how EVERY LITTLE detail had been thought of so far out in advance. Kristen carried around this "binder" that would blow any planners mind! I actually took a few notes from her awesome binder and now use her super OCD techniques in other brides binders! Seriously, you have to see it for yourself to appreciate it. Also, Kristen had the most amazing engagement ring I have ever seen. I am a LOVER of Emerald cut/Radiant cut diamonds and hers were just stunning and so sparkly. Love!

The year came and went we started planning for her big day 8 weeks out from her wedding. While Kristen was very organized and had planned the majority of her wedding herself, their were still many tasks for us ladies to tackle. We attended all of her final meetings and site visits, made final to do list and were ready for her wedding day! 
On the day of the wedding, everything went off without a hitch! Kristen and her entire family were some of the sweetest people I have ever had the pleasure of working with. You could absolutely feel the love from this family with every passing second!

Kristen left this sweet note for me a few days after the big day:
Little notes like this make all those long hours worth it! I absolutely love what I do and couldn't imagine doing anything else!

What I love most about these pictures if you can truly tell what a BLAST they had! See for yourself! :)
