We have been thinking of you every day, as we have recounted our memories of the day and basked in the compliments from friends and family. The day was more than I could have ever dreamed of, I could not have IMAGINED it could go that well.
Eve, Marlene - you guys are an absolute powerhouse. You are so calm, yet so across everything and experienced, walking into the Manor at 11am was such a relief because I knew from then on in everything would just be handled. Your team is so friendly and helpful - down to putting stickers on boxes (thank you Ayla) and fluffing silk!!
You can't put a value a team like yours that just deeply cares - it must be such a dream to work for MM, because your staff exude happiness, professionalism and kindness and that doesn't come easily in any organisation. You guys should write a book on management (I would love to know your secret - I have a feeling a big part of it is love!).
Getting ready, nothing was too much trouble for Liz - even during the night, when she so subtley and helpfully ushered me away to pin up my torn bustle and then whisked me back like nothing had happened - just like a fourth bridesmaid and old friend. Thank you Liz!!
Dakota - what a force to be reckoned with. You had such a big smile on your face and obviously have so much fun with what you do, but you are so precise and always thinking ahead! Everything ran like clockwork, despite quite a few surprise additions to the schedule as planned by Lorenzo's family. My favourite memory of you on the night Dakota is you smiling and bopping to the music while you brought over my tossing bouquet - just genuinely enjoying what you do.
Then the morning after was such a pleasure - everything was gathered and ready to go. What an absolute dream!!!
