After {gasp} thirty-some years producing weddings we still LOVE what we do and look forward to the next thirty-some years to come! One of the main reasons we continue to find the passion to plan and design events every day, is for the soul-warming reward we receive when we’ve brought joy to our clients. That joy, in turn, gets showered back on us when Monday morning comes. After a busy weekend of events, we usually power up the computers to find lovely thank you notes from the celebrations we’ve decorated just hours before. And, in many cases, the notes keep coming long after the party has ended. We were blessed to receive the following thank you note just this past Monday, on the one year anniversary of one of our September 3, 2011 bridal couples. It beautifully captured why we do what we do here at Evantine, that we just had to share it…

Dear Brian & the amazingly gifted Evantine Team,

This weekend marks one year of marriage for my husband and I, and as I am looking back on photos of the day we became husband and wife, I just had to write to tell you…

You made our wedding day beautiful! It was everything I never knew I ever wanted! In other words, you somehow saw into my mind and knew what I would love! I remember looking back and walking into our church the eve of our wedding and seeing it absolutely transformed with these incredible trees lining the aisle… it was lovely, romantic and literally took my breath away.

Fast forward to the day of the wedding… Seeing nine unique, yet perfectly complimenting bouquets ushered into the foyer was such a fun part of the day! Photos captured it perfectly… my mouth was wide open in awe of what you had created! My bouquet was the most beautiful bouquet I had ever seen… It was more than I could have dreamed up or imagined.. and like nothing I had seen before! I loved holding it!! and I LOVE looking at it in pictures.

As for the way you designed The Cairnwood Estate… oh my word, what can I say… I am running out of adjectives to describe the work you do.

The flowers… all the candles… those antique lace linens!! … it was so clear that so much time and care was taken in making sure every little part of the Estate was made beautiful. At one point in the beginning of the evening, I saw Brian sitting off to the side looking on and just smiling. It’s like his joy was found in bringing others joy. Brian, thank you!! Coming to your amazing studio was truly one of the best parts of planning our wedding. I left feeling inspired to just create beautiful spaces wherever I am…

You were a JOY to work with. I thank God as I think of the gift He has given you… Thanks for not letting your talent go to waste! I am confident that I am amongst countless other brides and guests at your events who have been greatly blessed to experience your gift. I truly feel humbled that our wedding day was designed by you!

With very thankful hearts, Jenna & Steven
