In 2018, I received an email from a woman asking about Bespoken’s wedding planning services. When I saw her name, I felt like she sounded familiar, but I couldn’t pinpoint exactly where I knew her from… until she gently reminded me that she was a former student of mine from my early days of teaching middle school. All of a sudden, a flood of memories came rushing back, and I was reminded of this sweet girl as a bit younger. And then I was completely humbled that she was asking me to help plan one of the most important days of her life.
When Carley and I chatted for the first time since she was 12 years old, I smiled to myself and realized that life truly has a funny way of working itself out. It’s no surprise that her sweet personality as a child never left her… she proved to be as enjoyable and memorable to work with just as she had been to teach years ago.
She told me about her and Johnny, about their relationship, and about the hopes and dreams they had for their wedding at The Cliffs at Glassy Chapel and The Cliffs at Glassy Clubhouse. They wanted a night to remember… a beautiful, romantic affair that spoke of the beauty and simplicity of their relationship. And sure enough…their wedding was just as lovely as the two of them. Olivia Griffin captured the day’s events beautifully… enjoy!
