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!
