Celebrating our anniversary with a feature on POPSUGAR

Hi friends!

I don’t know about you but it’s been such a busy July for me already as we’re in the middle of wedding season. I was lucky enough to have a weekend away at the end of June to take a trip to Louisville, Kentucky with my husband to celebrate our wedding anniversary.  We were wed on the Fourth of July in downtown Columbus on a beautiful Saturday afternoon back in 2015. Prior to this years holiday weekend our amazing wedding photographer, Robb McCormick, sent me a message that our wedding would be featured on POPSUGAR. I assumed it would be one or two photos included in some sort of “10 Ideas to Include Americana Details Into Your Wedding” or something along those lines. Believe me, I was SO surprised when the article went live and it was exclusively about our wedding. I LOVE re-living all of those memories, looking back at the photos and reminiscing on the family and loved ones we shared the day with, and realizing how much I love and cherish the journey my husband and I are on together. 

 I love that smile on his face!!

Here’s an portion of the article and a few photos… to see the full feature on POPSUGAR click here!

“When the bride’s a wedding planner, you know she won’t skimp out on any of the details. Cassandra and Ryan celebrated their big day on the Fourth of July at the Large Theatre in Ohio’s historic Columbus Athenaueum. Even though the two tied the knot on Independence Day, the holiday theme didn’t overwhelm their wedding. Aside from American flag socks for the groomsmen and a giant flag photo backdrop, the reception featured pink flamingos and other colorful elements. The bride and groom even got their own wedding cakes to reflect their styles.” Nicole Yi

& finally .. some of the Americana elements that we included!

Cassandra and the Event Prep Team were extraordinary in all aspects of planning and preparation prior, during and after the wedding. At first we were hesitant to hire a wedding planner, but we could not have done it without her and are beyond thankful for all of their help. At the end of the day you don’t want to be stressed during the wedding planning process and Cassandra and her team eliminated all stress. Cassandra was supportive and always remained positive while trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic. We will look back at our day and always be thankful for Cassandra!!

"The best decision we made"

Event Prep is the best decision you can make for your wedding planning needs. Period. From the beginning vision phases, to the tough decision making moments, Cassandra is there not only as a seasoned professional but as a friend. There were times where I was at my wits end, and Cassandra became my place of peace and calm. She was always 10 steps ahead of the game and guided me in the right direction. She made me feel like my wedding was her only focus and her efforts showed through. My husband and guests were absolutely speechless at our ceremony and reception. They were truly blown away. None of it would've been possible without her. Simply put, Event Prep made my wedding dreams come true.

You will not be disappointed in your selection with Event Prep. Cassandra is the most professional, kind and bubbly spirit you’ll come in contact with.  We both have full time jobs and knew we would need all the extra help we could get.  Cassandra and Event Prep were the answers to my prayers! She made sure that we were all able to enjoy our day and not think twice about what needed to be accomplished. When I needed her, she was right there. I could not possibly fit a list of all the things Cassandra assisted with into this review. However, I can say she is a big reason I am able to look back on my wedding day with joy and happiness. Having the ability to focus on our guests and enjoy the most important day of our lives was priceless.
