Getting to be the wedding coordinator for my dear friend (and work wife) was such a wonderful opportunity. Carolina and I had gone through the many stages of wedding planning together - from dreaming of getting engaged a year earlier to her seeing me stress out about my wedding and then vice versa. She asked me to be her wedding coordinator after seeing me stress about decor not being placed aesthetically, and trusted me to do the job. She had also taken a lot of decor off of my hands (reuse!), so I was already familiar with a lot of the decor she was bringing. And as a beginning tablescape artist, I was excited to get to be the event designer for such a dear friend.
And shoutout to Keith - it couldn't be done with the wonderful assistance of my husband! He ran around directing people to move and place things, served as the point person for vendors, and helped remind the DJ to announce important messages that Carolina wanted to get out so that all her hard work would be put to use and appreciated. In the end, we received the highest compliments from the catering manager, who said that we were the best wedding coordinators she had ever worked with!
