Planner Notes:

Betsy and Tyler's wedding was a great example of investing in the things that matter to you as a couple! By keeping their tables and other details neutral, the colorful flowers by Amanda Burnette were allowed to shine. Rather than buying cute tchotchkes to fill tables, the couple invested in lots of lush florals and meaningful keepsakes like the rugs that lined the aisle to contrast King Family Vineyard's classic backdrop.,

Christine was a dream to work with! She is the definition of a bosslady and I always felt that she and I worked as a true team to nail our wedding. I had a vision and she helped me execute it to a tee. She is extremely organized, focused, and detail oriented. Even though she was extremely busy (and not to mention has a baby during our planning process) she always made me feel like her only client! She kept me on track and made sure that nothing slipped through the cracks. She was always available and easy to get in touch with if I had a question or needed anything!! Our wedding went off without a hitch in large part due to the Christine’s diligence and coordination! Simply put, Wood Grain and Lace is the absolute best I can not recommend them enough!!!
