Hope + Chad are married! Hartwick College Pine Lake Environmental Campus | Oneonta, NY

Real Wedding


I’m currently waiting on the babe’s arrival. So I’ve been reminiscing on this past wedding season which has been so incredible. Hope and Chad were one of the amazing couple’s we collaborated with on wedding planning – their families, friends as well as the fab vendors they paired with made for a beautiful experience. Hope and Chad were wed on a rainy day in June at Hartwick College Pine Lake Environmental Campus – thankfully the rain stopped a few times during the day and they were able to snag some of the memories they had hoped for. So many beautiful details, vintage china, Hope’s family handkerchiefs, wildflowers, delicious pies, Silver Arrow Band and yummy bbq made for such a celebration of love. Hope gifted Cathy and myself with a beautiful mug that I enjoy my morning coffee in a day or two a week and it brings me back to their day. I’m feeling really thankful to be able to meet so many special couple’s that turn from client’s to friends.

Raves from Hope –

“We had the amazing pleasure of working with Ashley and Cathy this past June 2018, and their hard work and attention to detail was a huge reason why our wedding was such a success! Since our venue was outdoors and we had to hire all of our vendors separately, there was a lot to coordinate and to plan for. We were relying on our family for a lot of support in the planning process, but we knew that as the wedding approached we did not want our family to be stressed out on the big day- that’s where Ashley and Cathy came in! From the moment we started working with them, Ashley and Cathy were kind, patient, creative, and professional about every detail. We met with Cathy several months before the wedding to go over details, and she put our minds at ease as she shared her wisdom and knowledge from her almost 30 years in the event industry! We had several phone conversations with Ashley throughout the whole process, and she made a huge effort to learn about and understand our aesthetic and vision for the day- which she executed perfectly in ways that were better than we could have ever imagined. In addition to being available and responsive to all of our ideas, questions, and concerns leading up to the wedding, Ashley and Cathy came out to our venue the day before to go over any last-minute details and rehearsals. Again, they put our minds at ease as they handled all of our anxiety-driven questions and concerns with the utmost patience, organization, and attention to detail. On the day of the wedding, Ashley and Cathy handled everything from directing guests, managing the catering staff, setting up table decorations, and facilitating the timeline of the ceremony and reception. We did not have to worry or stress about a single thing the whole day! And if any of us had a question or concern, Ashley and Cathy were there to handle it in a way that appeared effortless! They truly were wonderful to work with from start to finish, and I would recommend their services to anyone looking for wedding coordinators who are fun, kind, patient, creative, passionate, talented, and organized!”
