On August 15th 2015 I had my first meeting with Maegan and Revin. We talked about their vision and all things wedding. That night they emailed me and said they were ready to sign their contract and reserve our services for their wedding. We immediately went to work looking for the perfect venue, trying to pin down the date. I set up several venue tours. Our first stop was Paradise Cove at Lake Grapevine. When I called the venue the owner Tina (super sweet lady) informed me they were under a bit of construction and I assured her that was no problem. I arrived at the venue earlier than Maegan & Revin (mostly because I gave them the wrong address! LOL) When I arrived and met Tina, I realized they were more than under a little construction….. They had been flooded and the building was completely gutted. Just studs and concrete flooring. I started to panic! What are my clients going to think?! Once they arrived I rushed to their car to inform them that the building was gutted due to the flood. They still wanted to tour the property. They immediately fell in love with Paradise Cove. Tina assured us that it would be spectacular come their wedding date, November 4th, 2016. We toured other venues but they still were set on having their wedding at Paradise Cove.
Venue: Paradise Cove
Tina at Paradise Cove definitely kept her promise! The venue was more beautiful than we could have ever imagined. Maegan & Revin were so happy with their choice & would not have changed the location for anything. Thank you Tina for going above and beyond for this sweet couple!
Once the venue was booked we moved on to photography. We had a bit of trouble here. We found a photographer that thought would be a great fit. Well, not so much! After their engagement photos Maegan called and said that she was so upset over the pictures and she was afraid that would happen also with the wedding photos. I recommended her to Justin Yoder with Justin Yoder Studios. Once they saw his work, they were sold! They took new engagement photos which they loved & the wedding day photos were AMAZING!

As you can see from the photos on this blog, Justin is amazing! Thank you Justin for all your amazing and hard work!
So now, we had a date, venue and photographer. It was time to find a DJ to bring the reception to life! I recommended Maegan and Revin to Melody & Memories Entertainment. Melody was their DJ and the wedding ceremony music was beautiful & flawless. Off to the reception! Melody kept the party going! Everyone was having a great time! She even kept the secret of the surprise Groomsmen dance! Which was epic!
If you’re in the market for a DJ, give Melody & Memories a call!
Now onto the tasty! We needed a cake! I instantly recommended Shauntay with Thirsty Cupcake! We met for a tasting and they designed their cake & enjoyed all the samples, which were delicious!! On wedding day EVERYONE was in love with these beautiful cakes!
Cake: Thirsty Cupcake

Maegan hired Holli Elaine Hair & Makeup Artistry to do her hair & make up along with her bridal party! She was amazing and so fast! Holli was also so much fun!

The Escort board was designed and printed by Moments Pro Studio. Maegan & Revin really didn’t know exactly what they wanted. I emailed Karen & Rebecca at Moments Pro and let them know it was a “fall” wedding & a list of names and tables. OH MY GOSH! The escort board was PERFECT! If you need print work, photography or design get ahold of this amazing mother – daughter team! Also, they did this board the week of the wedding!

November 4th 2016 will always be one of my personal favorites. I never could have imagined I would be gaining two life long friends! But I am so happy I did! Planning this wedding was such a joy! Revin & Maegan were definitely made for each other.
