Life as of lately . . .

What a whirlwind the past few months have been! Every so often I like to recap how my life has been going + I must say, I am beyond thrilled with so many of the accomplishments of At Last. What are some specifics, you ask?! Some highlights include...
  • Being featured in two wedding publications
  • Executing 10+ weddings in the past few months
  • My sister, Jolene getting engaged
  • Participating in two huge bridal shows
  • Getting approved to be a vendor with Every Last Detail
  • Having my Nana + Papa celebrate their 54th year of marriage
  • Of course, the birth of my daughter, Emily + watching my husband turn into an incredible father


... so completely blessed!

Engaged : Lexi + J.B.

Let me begin by saying how difficult it was to select only a handful of photos for this blog post. Pure Photography by Lindsey Tropf did a sensational job on Lexi + J.B's engagement photos + after quite a bit of time, I was able to narrow it down to some of my personal favorites!

Lexi + I actually went to high school together {insert cliche: Go Rams!} so when she approached me to assist with her + J.B's wedding planning, I was flattered + beyond excited. Who wouldn't be? Look at how adorable these two are together! They will make some beautiful babies... too soon?!

While we wait until next May for their fabulous wedding at the Lake Mary Events Center, enjoy some of their incredible engagement photos.

Need A {Wedding} Favor?!

Why not show your greatest appreciation to your guests with a wedding favor? After all, your wedding would not be quite as fun or memorable without your family + friends there to help you celebrate. Wedding favors are a tradition that goes way back; however, this hospitable gesture has evolved tremendously throughout the years. Sure, Jordan Almonds wrapped in tulle is a classic that can never go wrong, but they may get stale. Personalized favors are becoming extremely popular with your DIY crafts! Couples are now expressing their creativity + originality through their wedding theme, color scheme, or by sharing something meaningful. Here are a few inexpensive, yet thoughtful wedding favor ideas:

Love is Brewing- If you + your fiance love a good cup of Joe or have a favorite kind of coffee, share that blend with your guests!

To Have + To Hold- This wedding favor idea may be a great gift from that certain couple that loves to tailgate at their alma mater, throw a BBQ, or just simply hang out + enjoy a cold one! Koozie's can be very inexpensive + customizable.

Seasonal Spread- Do you + your fiance share a love for food? Create your own "Seasonal Spread" that ties into the season that you will be getting married! (i.e- honey, jams, flavored mustard, seasonal butter, or homemade peanut butter!). For my own personal wedding, we went with this idea + made blueberry mustard... it was a huge hit!

The Perfect Match- Personalize a book of matches for your guests to take home. Pair this with your favorite votive Yankee candle wrapped in tulle + it will be a perfect scent of remembrance!

Sensing S'more Love- Having an outdoor or an evening wedding? What a more perfect way to say thank you, than to send everyone home with a sweet treat. After all, everyone loves s'mores!

The best advice to give is: plan ahead! Finding or making your perfect wedding favors will take some time. You wedding favors can be a thoughtful way to share your love + appreciation, while adding that finishing touch to your special day. After all, it's all about the details!

Happy To Help!

Jaclyn, Amanda and the At Last Team have achieved the perfect blend of professionalism and friendliness that can put any bride worries to rest. The team is efficient, effective, detail oriented, knowledgeable in their field and can do it all with a smile on their faces. They are willing to meet with clients as much as needed, at whatever time works for you, and answer numerous questions per day via emails as well. When the rehearsal day and wedding day arrived I couldn't have made it through without them. I wish I could experience it all over again!!! My only advice would be to USE THEIR EXPERTISE!!! Some of my vendors I had booked prior to meeting with At Last and now wish that I had waited a little longer so I would have had Jaclyn's advice.

If you decide to go with At Last for your wedding coordination services you won't be disappointed.
Thank you so much Ladies :)
