Brooke and Ryan: Better Together


There are relationships that last a life time. You may not always see each other, but those relationships are like stars, you know they are there. I met Brooke several years ago when I collaborated with her on a TV Segment for summer entertaining. Over the years we just sort of stayed in touch via social media and then one day she got engaged and I came on board to help out her and her beautiful Mom, Dawn

A DREAM to sum up the process, the Families, the Event. My team and I started with a floral consultation with Mayflowers Company. Sara, designer, met up with Brooke and her Mother. After that I sent Brooke and Ryan on a cake testing extravaganza, they went with the infamous Carrie’s Cakes.


From Vendor sourcing, to design and timelines, my team and I have decided we need to get adopted into this entire family. Lauren, Day of Coordinator, was there for rehearsals through clean up  of the reception. Lauren works so hard for our clients, which also includes a lot of cardio. Fun Fact: Found out my team and Brooke’s bff’s were linked to the same Sorority and it made the experience so much more meaningful, Sisters helping Sisters!

The design was inspired by the Bride and Groom’s color palette of Navy, White, Green, and Gold, and the beautiful, natural landscape of our mountains. We installed a gold and white lantern feature above the dinner area to keep your eyes grounded to the overall a design. The vaulted ceilings at the Last Chance Lodge are massive and without an extra element to  disrupt the space, the seating area can look dwarfed. Carolyn with Mayflowers also added vases of different heights, again to break up the big reception area and keep things cozy and classy. To tie in the lanterns and the greenery we added a simple bundle of lanterns and greens to the landing transitioning from cocktail hour to dinner, to bring a cohesive design and transition.
