Joanna was referred to me by the wonderful Reba Hall at Sweet August Events. To my delight, Joanna and I discovered we are fellow alumni of Valdosta State University! How in the world did two Georgia girls end up in Texas. I knew this would be a terrific match, and it was. Joanna and Tim live in Dallas but love golf, and wanted a glamorous wedding at La Cantera Resort. She maintained a positive, trusting attitude all year while La Cantera underwent major renovations, keeping her slightly uncertain as the where her wedding would actually be. The Palmer House was a perfect place for her and her guests, and then it threatened to rain that day, forcing Reba to do what professional event planners do best: employ the Rain Plan. It wasn’t Joanna’s first choice, but she trusted the vendors she had hired, and it happily paid off: their ceremony as well as reception were held under a beautiful white tent and the rain only came during the ceremony. Their beautiful florals were by Statue of Design. We were still able to go out onto the golf course for portraits of the wedding party and the two of them. Also, I must give a big shout out to Palmer House Golf Club, not only did they keep everything running smoothly, but they even had beautiful white umbrellas for all the guests to use. These gals have literally got you covered!
It was a beautiful day full of joy and celebration, and best of all, Joanna got to get down with her hubby to rockin’ Motown and classic dance songs by the Austin Nines. I personally enjoyed all the Georgia accents; it was like being home for a few hours. Joanna and Tim made their exit in a golf cart, decorated with Pepsi cans, a nod to their careers at the Frito Lay company.
Congratulations, Joanna and Tim! And a huge thank you to Jessica Johnson for her fantastic assistance.
