January 20th, 2018 was my very first wedding of the 2018 wedding season & it was also my very own! We had so many amazing vendors that made our wedding day a dream come true. Our venue was located in Sioux City, IA at the Orpheum Theatre. The theatre has so much charm & beauty already & it was PERFECT for my “Beauty & The Beast” themed wedding & those chandeliers.. JAW DROPPING! I can’t thank Allana Rogge with Studiofotografie enough for capturing such detail of our perfect day.
I owe a huge thank you to Miss Loghin for listening to all of my last minute decisions weeks, days, & minutes leading up to the wedding. While I was getting my hair & make-up done by Shelon with Shelon Artistry & spending time with my bridal party, Loghin was busy setting up 300+ rose folded napkins, turning on hundreds of LED candles, setting out our wedding cake made by Delectables along with additional desserts for our guests, putting together a chocolate fountain station provided by Ideal Wedding & Events, & also a hot chocolate station. On top of all of that she was coordinating with vendors, keeping track of the timeline, & guiding family members in the right direction who came from far away & wanted to help with anything they could. Yes, I am a wedding planner & even I needed a day of coordinator!
The ceremony was located in the theatre on stage complete with a rose ceremony to tie in the theme — even some Beauties & the Beast themselves made an appearance! We had PINStudios to capture our entire day from start to finish for us to watch for years to come — almost a year later & I STILL cry every time I watch it. We also were lucky enough to have Chris Hintz himself from Pinnacle Productions to keep the dance floor full all night long. Chris & his team also put together a mix of songs for my first dance with my dad & also did a voice over for a surprise for my mom. As if the dance party didn’t keep the guests entertained we also had a mirror photo booth provided by Pinnacle Productions which made great favors for guests to take home! My husband & I also had our very own favor to take home by having Jillian Artistry there to capture our first dance through a LIVE painting that our guests got to watch throughout the night.
Our day was amazing but also had plenty of bumps from our ring bearer only making it halfway down the aisle, our best man dropping my ring during the middle of the ceremony, our chocolate fountain running out of chocolate, & our wedding, in the middle of January, with zero snow & 50 degrees. None of those small things mattered because at the end of the day, all of our close friends & family were in the same place celebrating us & I got to marry my best friend. Our hearts were full then & still continue to grow fuller to this day!
Thank you for taking a look into my big day!
