Rachel + Ryan September 3, 2017 Indiana Historical Society Wedding

Rachel + Ryan are lifelong friends! We always love when couples have beautiful love stories that people share during their toasts like they did on Rachel + Ryan's big day. It makes the day feel so rich and warm with history, love and family! They are both Phillipino so that led to some very fun traditions taking place as well as the largest number of people we have ever sent down an aisle before a ceremony (over 40 people!). They also happened to have some of the most beautiful wedding day details around. We've never seen the Indiana Historical Society look so stunning for a ceremony before!

Pantone's Color of the Year 2018

We were so excited to find out Pantone's color of the year for 2018! We love it! The color they selected is Ultra Violet. We can see this coming through in everything from bridesmaid dresses to flowers and paper products. Such a fun color that can be blended with softer neutrals and act as a pop of color or it can be embraced with other bright colors to shine for a summery wedding! We can't wait to see how our clients are inspired to use it in 2018.

●      Tell us a little about you.

I’m an elementary school teacher turned event planner + Pure Barre studio manager. I have always loved planning events and first got my start with events through student organizations and nonprofits in college. I loved everything about planning my own wedding - from meeting with vendors, to creating design boards and every little detail in between. I knew I wanted to put this passion to work. After getting married in 2013, my husband and I lived in Denver, CO for about 4 years. This is where I got my start in wedding coordination in 2014. I loved working with couples to turn their dream wedding into reality; the beautiful scenery, rustic outdoors, and dreamy Colorado venues didn’t hurt either. I moved back to Indianapolis about a year ago and quickly searched for a wedding + event company to work with here. I’m excited to be part of the Plum and Poppy team and coordinate weddings back in my home state of Indiana.

 

●      What’s your go to Starbucks order?

            Cold brew with vanilla + milk

 

●      What’s your favorite part about being a wedding planner?

            When I planned my own wedding, I knew that I wanted to have a wedding coordinator there for the day-of so that I could just relax and enjoy my wedding day. That was the best decision I made because I truly didn’t have to worry about a thing that day! My favorite part about being a wedding planner is giving this gift to other couples so they can enjoy their big day. I love putting all of the pieces and details together so it turns out just the way the couple had envisioned their wedding day. Don’t stress - I’ve got it covered!

 

●      What’s your favorite place to travel?

            Kiawah Island, South Carolina. It’s a hidden paradise along the coast of Charleston and has been my favorite vacation getaway for as long as I can remember.

 

●      What’s your favorite part of a wedding day?

            My favorite part of wedding day is later in the evening when I have time to have a cup of coffee and a slice of cake. It’s often the first time that I’ve sat down and taken a moment to look around and take everything in. I look and see the bride and groom dancing, smiling, and having a good time. There is a buzz in the air of love and happiness. I know that the day has been a success and I’ve done everything I can to make the couple happy. Everything moves fast that day, so I try to take a moment and appreciate all of the little details that have fallen into place to make the day perfect for the couple.

           

●      What’s your favorite place to have dinner out in Indianapolis?

            This is a hard question, but one of my favorite places is Cooper’s Hawk. Great food and great wine - what more could you ask for?

           

●      What’s your best advice to couples on their wedding day?

            Enjoy every moment. The day will go faster than you could imagine, so my best advice is to just enjoy the day and soak it all in.

           

●      What’s your favorite memory from your own wedding?

            On a day that I had planned every detail for, my husband somehow pulled off a surprise for me. At the beginning of the reception, he called my name over the speakers, I looked up and saw him at the front of the room with his guitar. He surprised me by singing and playing “Marry Me” by Train.

Natalie + Chris' Wedding Video

We loved helping Natalie and her mom plan all the beautiful details for her wedding to Chris! It was a beautiful sun drenched day full of happy tears at the best first look ever and lots of fun! See their highlight video below from Unique Heart Productions! Thank you to our entire team: Conforti Photography, Something Blue Stylists, Marie Gabriel Couture, Classic Cakes, and the Hyatt Regency!

Getting To Know The Team: Beth

We're thrilled to share a bit more about our wonderful team member Beth McHugh! She brings so much happiness to our team and our clients! Find out more about her below.

·      Tell us a little about you.

One of my favorite words is JOY, and I try to live my life with that in mind.   I am so fortunate to have an amazing family, (I have the most adorable granddaughter, who lights up our life), incredible friends and the opportunity to work with ridiculously talented professionals.  Currently, I am planning our daughter's wedding, and so, once again, I am the Mother of the Bride, and loving every minute of it!

 

·      What’s your go to Starbucks order?

A vanilla bean scone, please.....and then a quick trip to McDonalds for a large diet coke with extra ice.  Forgive me, coffee just isn't my thing!

 

·      What’s your favorite part about being a wedding planner?

If I had to choose my favorite part of this job, it would be the relationships I get to create with the couples I work with. Getting to know my clients in the midst of planning something so personal and significant – learning about who they are as individuals and then finding ways to reflect that in their wedding design – it is very rewarding.

 

 

·      What’s your favorite place to travel?

Anywhere there is a beach. Give me the sun, sand, a good book and my family any day....and maybe some sangria wouldn't hurt!

 

·      What’s your favorite part of a wedding day?

This is a hard one, I have many.  For me, the sweetest and most emotional moment of the day is the Bride and Groom's first look.  It is a private, intimate few minutes, before the wedding party and family joins them, that is just for the two of them.  It is a quiet, very special moment, usually, followed by a few happy tears.

 

·      What’s your favorite place to have dinner out in Indianapolis?

My new favorite restaurant is Vida.  Their menu offers an array of incredible tasty options.  I love their wall of greens and their wine pairings.

 

·      What’s your best advice to couples on their wedding day?

This is your day, so breathe, eat, enjoy, soak everything in and nothing important will happen without the two of you.

 

·      What’s your favorite memory from your own wedding?

Oh, another hard question, I loved our wedding day. One of the most special moments was when Mike & I were exchanging our vows.  It was as if there wasn't anyone else in the church, holding hands, repeating the vows, it felt so right.  And it must have been, we have been married for 28 years!
