Merritt and Sean live in Long Beach, California, but decided to hold their wedding at Merritt’s parents’ farm in Upperville, Virginia. Both Merritt and Sean work in the automotive industry, so their wedding design quickly became industrial meets garden tented reception. Merritt commissioned the floral centerpiece containers to be made out of car parts. The silver pinwheels on the wedding cake are inspired by engine turbines. The bridesmaids wore steering wheel pendant necklaces from Tiffany. The guests sipped on Dom Perignon and the evening was capped off with surprise fireworks over the pond. The bride and groom left the wedding in a classic Cadillac.
I chose Bellwether Events because Janice was all business. On our first phone call she had a prepared set of questions she wanted answered, so the important details were covered. She kept the conversation on topic on what she could deliver and what could be expected of a wedding planner. She was also very virtually connected which was important me when working with someone across the country. On the wedding day all my bridesmaids were complimenting her straightforward delivery and thorough scheduling. Everything went absolutely perfectly with Janice sweating out the details.”-Merritt J.
