A Love For Each Other

Melissa and Scott were a fabulous couple to work with!   I am one lucky wedding planner!  Melissa's mom contacted me and said that they were from the Chicago area but that her daughter was getting married in Rockford, Illinois and that they would need assistance from a wedding planner.   Of course I said yes! 

One of my favorite parts of my couples that I get the chance to work with is that when a part of their love story becomes a part of their wedding day,  Melissa and Scott love to travel to different Brewing Companies and Rockford, Illinois was not an exception.  It was very fitting that their wedding venue be a Brewery and Prairie Street Brewhouse / Rockford Brewing Company fit that exact description.

The pictures tell the story of their day and just how enjoyable it was.  I hope you enjoy their story.

~ Best,

Giovanni's Open House ~ Rockford, Illinois

Several months ago we were asked to participate in Giovanni's Open House in Rockford, Illinois.  They wanted to showcase their newly remodeled ballroom in all the different aspects of events.  Accent on Events focused on a budget friendly wedding reception, a head table and an Exquisite Wedding Reception.  Below are photographs from the event.  It was fun for us to showcase ourselves while working with a group of professional vendors to come up with a design for all areas that would be an option for couples to utilize.
