You guys! I am SO excited about this!
.
I have officially moved on from private wedding coordinating. I am the Event Director at Union 12 and the NEW Paper Mill on the Landing mixed with mom life and I have decided to walk away from this chapter! But, you’re still in excellent hands!
.
Meet Suzanne Howard! Suzanne and I have worked closely on many weddings and we have worked together at our home church coordinating weddings onsite, then Suzanne was an Event Day Venue Manager at Union 12 before she had her sweet babe, Selah!
.
I am passing the reigns of my first company I owned and ran, Simply Sparrow Wedding Experience Coordinating over to Suzanne!
.
Why I trust Suzanne is her attention to detail, her constant awareness of the event vibe around her and her quick reactions to fix fires without anyone even noticing. She is classy, organized and always ready to be hands on every step of the way!
.
Need a wedding coordinator? Need someone just for day of? Need someone to handle things because you’re planning from out of town? Need someone that has years of experience and all the contacts you need for a perfect wedding? Call Suzanne!

Sometimes wedding coordination looks like this. A couple of antsy flower girls that sat in a couple "secret seats" in the Pathway Community Church sound booth, while their mommas were bridesmaids and everyone could enjoy the ceremony! I love the "extra" stuff like this that makes the day just a little bit sweeter ❤️💍

All the feels for Suzanne & Kyle Howard 😍 I met them through Pathway Community Church, it's our home church and I do the majority of the wedding coordinating there, they decided to bring me on for the last minute buttoning up of their big day! I loved working with Suzanne's mother and grandmother during set up and seeing all the LOVE that everyone has for these two. So many sweet moments between The Howard's and the mission and ministry and example they set for the youth they are touching is incredible. Love you two!

I LOVED the vision Jessica had for her love day. It fit the venue flawlessly 😍 would you believe me if I told you those cebterpieces we made from "wild flowers" growing on a embankment near Jessica's home! It's true! We wanted something whimsical but cost effective, cancelled the centerpiece order last minute to free up some budget & whipped these babies up the night before! The wooden table numbers were from a 2016 bride & I knew she was looking to sell!

I am still on a high and smiling ear to ear after the Jost wedding Saturday night. These two families are overflowing with kindness, appreciation for the little things, excitement and loads of love. The example of Gods will in their lives was obvious and intentional through the entire evening. Congratulations Logan & Jessica Jost! It was an honor and a JOY serving you on your love day❤️

What a FUN day I've had with Jodi Marie Huelsman (now Grover) & Michael Grover! With a sweet ceremony Pathway Community Church and celebration at Usf Performing Arts Center downtown!

4:50pm
Meet and line up wedding party, coordinate DJ with wedding party order as enunciation of names

It's a long, wonderful day! I love how each wedding is different but the result is always the same. Two people who were not married are finally going home married tonight.

What an absolute JOY and HONOR it was to serve Brooke & Nick McBride and their friends and families on their love day! Brooke and Nick created this romantic, intimate, beautiful & personal event at Sylvan Cellars . Big shout outs to Timmy's Pizza & BBQ for the stellar BBQ dinner with seamless set up and tear down. On Point DJ - Celebrate Life Andy Binkley creating a perfect sound for the ceremony, natural on the mic and a party that we had to force out of the building. Dustin & Corynn Wedding Photography & Lindsay Lee Photography for capturing each special moment. I can't wait to see the footage and photos!

I am mourning the end of the Frauhiger family weddings but truly blessed to be a part of each of them!

Wishing you laughs, love and lots of happiness Nick & Brooke ❤️❤️

What a wonderful weekend!

I co-hosted a bachelorette party this weekend for a friend and just want to share a couple of the awesome services that we received for Malorie's Bride Tribe weekend!

Bob and his team at Bottle & Bottega Fort Wayne were amazing at accommodating and providing a canvas painting party on location in the Holler! Bob is awesome at communication before the event and really making it seamless. This is an awesome and totally affordable option for any kid of party! The instructor Ellen totally made everyone feel capable and confident about their piece! Thank you B & B team!

We hired a sweet 18yo girl names Emmie to come out and do Henna tattoos on location for all of us. I had never met her and only went by referral. She was AWESOME. It was a great super affordable way to add a little something to the day! She was friendly and professional and we really enjoyed having her there! I can give you her info if needed :)

We rented a beautiful pink hummer limo for the evening! Todd and his wife own it (I'm sure you have seen it on Hillegas road) it was SUPER affordable compared to the other limo companies and he probably made 5 trips back to Huntertown at different points of the night. He even stopped at taco bell :) We really had a great experience with him! I can also get you his info if needed!

Thank you BakerStreet Steakhouse for the quick accommodations and wonderful dinner.

Thank you Dynamic Sound Entertainment for the KILLER dance party at the tent downtown. We had an amazing time. (it was our favorite spot)

Thank you to Pedal City and Moyses for the fun pedal tour (and dance party)

We just couldn't have had a better weekend!!

Happy Sunday!

I just saw this quoted on the LGBT Weddings Fort Wayne page and it couldn't be more right! "

You need to make sure you hire professionals with good reputations. But it's especially important that you like two vendors on your wedding day team - really like them. You should want to be friends with your planner and your photographer. You should look forward to your meetings with them. Clicking with these two people is super important because they are literally in your space on the wedding day. They can absolutely make a difference in how much you enjoy your big day." - Christy Matthews | Christy Matthews Events, Dallas, TX

This is why referrals is such a huge part of my business. I want to be friends with your friends on their wedding day! I love to get coffee, dinner, cocktails and hangout with my clients {but mostly friends} a lot before their big day! It truly makes for a more comfortable and totally smooth wedding experience ❤️

Alomar Entertainment

As a Wedding & Special Events Planner I have always been seeking the best in the biz for all vendors. I have preferred {local} companies that I always recommend, based on price, reviews, professionalism and compatibility. I am thrilled so hear that Alomar Entertainment was awarded 2016 Couples Choice award! I was not surprised when I saw this announced. These guys are my go to guys. Randy and his team are professionals with smooth transitions, easy to work with and totally comfortable on the mic.

If you want the team that keeps the party moving & the dance floor full-this is your DJ!
