Kelly and Adam

Oh how we love Kelly Hawkins. She was seriously one of the sweetest Brides we have ever worked with!

I was still working at Kim Box Photography when I got the phone call to meet with Kelly and Mrs. Janice.  Little did I know that Kim had thrown my name out there in the planner drawing pot! I was extremely nervous to say the least. Kelly’s Father is Dr. Jack Hawkins Jr., Chancellor of Troy University. That’s all I could think about–

“Everyone knows them. There’s going to be hundreds of people there. Don’t say something stupid. Am I going to impress Mrs. Janice?”. The list went on and on.

Long story short I GOT THE JOB. I was excited, relieved and happy yet still extremely nervous.  Our first initial meeting was at their home. I remember sitting in that pretty white arm chair in their living room thinking to myself, “This is what I am suppose to do”. Kelly and I had an awesome chemistry from the first moment we met and I honestly think that is what put my mind at ease. I really felt like I was planning a wedding for my best friend.

Adam and Kelly were a pure joy to work with. I knew there was something special about them when they invited me to dinner with their friends a couple of a night before their weddings.  I was more than just a planner or florist to them, I had become a friend and that meant more to me than any compliment or paycheck.

There were so many special touches throughout Kel and Adam’s day that was reminiscent of them and their personalities. From the Baseball themed buffet table for Adam or to the special flower arrangement in the Foyer dedicated to Kelly’s Aunt. But I think my MOST FAVORITE “touch” was the gospel choir. They sang “Oh Happy Day” as the newly married Bride and Groom made their exit. I had goose pimples on my arms the entire time. It was magical.

Thanks again Kelly and Adam for allowing us to be a part of your special day.  It was truly an honor.

A HUGE thanks to my team for pulling this one off. Mom, Dad, Morgan, Rae, Andrew, Hannah, Jonny and Hillary… I couldn’t have made Kelly’s dream wedding come true without you.
