Leah & Don Dippold got married on October 28, 2017 at the beautiful Barn at Hornbaker Gardens. We are so fortunate that our paths crossed to meet Leah and help her bring her vision to life. Not only did we get to work on her wedding but now we get to help her on corporate events on a regular basis.

Leah’s no nonsense personality makes her so easy to work with. She knows what she likes and what she does not. She appreciates good quality in execution of design and inventory and product.

Their day was one for the books. It was a late fall wedding,dry and a bit cold. That did not keep them from their outdoor wedding. Nothing a few hundred blankets and hand warmers could not fix!

We are so happy we got to be part of their day and now we someone we are so happy to call our friend!A big thank you to Schilling Photography for sharing these gorgeous photos with us!

The soft pallet of Natalie and Jeff’s wedding day will be forever one of our favorites. Her bouquet. All. The. Heart-Eyes. 😍 The color combo was just breathtaking and it is, most definitely, a team favorite we STILL talk about!

We loved working with Natalie and her laid back, easy going personality. Their day was magical and so are Natalie and Jeffrey. ❤️ A big thank you to Jacklyn Byrd Photography for sharing these gorgeous photos with us!

As the fun and craziness of the 2017 wedding season has settled, we are trying to share more of the amazing wedding days we have helped with! Let’s start with Samantha & Phil Conley. They were married September 16, 2017 at Warehouse on State with the wonderful Cracked Pepper providing the food and cake.

Samantha and Phil were guided through the design and planning process with Sara O’Shea of So Chic Events. Need we say more? Amazing, gorgeous day in such a fun space and amazing vendors to share the day with! We love that our photographer friends so willing share their work and capturing our work (that's you Portrait Life!)! It was a beautiful day for a beautiful couple.

What a beautiful pallet we had to work with. Fall was knocking on our door but we had one last vibrant color combo that just made us smile! We often do a lot of trending color combos over and over, and this one was just a breath of fresh air to work with. Amy was so relaxed and just took in all of her beautiful flowers, walking around the venue looking at them, and admiring their beauty! Wishing you the best Amy & Steven. Thank you for letting us be part of your day!

Sometimes when our couples are not local, making planning and design are a bit more work. Tara and her mom, Rita, had the assistance of So Chic Events to make that process seamless. Tara (and Rita) knew what they liked and more importantly, what they did not like! Knowing this makes the planning and designing process so much easier.

We enjoy working with the mom & daughter duo, especially these two, and the CAS Team wish Tara & Judd nothing by happiness!
