When Sam reached out to me interested to discuss details about his wedding, I thought both him and his fiance will come to consultation. But, come to find out his fiance Jamie was in Daytona Beach and Sam took charge of planning their northwest country club wedding.
Time passed, we communicated a lot via email and phone calls, but I didn’t have the opportunity to meet the bride until the wedding day! This was the first time this has ever happened to me!
I was a bit worried at the beginning as I wasn’t sure what to expect. But, Jamie, what sweetheart she is! – A very laid-back and an awesome chick, every girl would love to call a friend. She was extremely busy becoming a commercial pilot (you don’t see that a lot!) and fully trusted Sam, who is very well-organized and get-things-done type of gentleman, to plan her whole wedding.
Her friends and family were happy to travel from England to attend Jamie+Sam’s wedding, and throughout the whole wedding, it was such a joy hearing a nice mix of British and American accents. Even though the ceremony was bright and sunny, mother nature shed a happy tear (let’s say a lot of tears at times) for the newlyweds, especially during the toasts.
The whole wedding was full of personal touches. For the First dance, the couple chose to do a country dance, and parent dances involved chicken dance and train dance. The cake was handmade by the bride’s grandmother.
The wedding venue, built in the style of northwest country club, was located near the city but was secluded enough with evergreen trees and blooming bushes. Some guests were mingling inside under AC, some were outside under a conveniently built-in tent. Kids enjoyed playing all sorts of outdoor games, while adult guests enjoyed drinks and hors-d’oeuvres.
In the end, the Mother Nature granted Jamie+Sam with a heart shaped cloud as a blessing for a long happy marriage. (Honestly, I just nudged one side just a little bit)
We are forever grateful to Jamie+Sam for letting be part of their Big Day and witness these beautiful moments. Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Levenson!
