Amy + Derk || october 23, 2016

When talking about Amy and Derk’s wedding with vendors and our coordination team who worked on their wedding, you hear the same thing from all involved. What an AWESOME party! And there was no doubt that from the beginning Amy and Derk knew that was their crowd and they had to set the bar high. You see, the logistics of their planning was a little different than most. Amy grew up in Bryan/College Station, but she and Derk did their planning from The Netherlands, and wanted to make sure that their Dutch crowd was introduced to many things Texan, but also that the Texans were introduced to a semi-traditional Dutch experience during the day. It could not have blended more perfectly.

Kelly from our office was their coordinator and she and Amy were a perfect match from the beginning. Through only two personal visits to Texas during the planning that consisted of wedding meeting marathon days, and multi-hour Face Time sessions about every two to three weeks, the two were able to assemble a rock star vendor team and the vision that Amy had in her head. The wedding day was full of soft, romantic touches, accented with hints of metallic and candle light, with heavy details that left a large impact in everything from the bridesmaids gowns, floral, table centerpieces, men’s attire and Amy’s gown.

The ceremony was held on a beautiful Fall afternoon, and the guests immediately went into the reception hall to begin visiting and enjoying cocktails before dinner. Everyone was treated to a plated meal and wine service, devoured the cake and then began dancing like there was no tomorrow. One guest was a Dutch emcee/DJ, and even shared the mic a bit with the wedding DJ, which was a learning experience for both of them, but kept the crowd roaring.

We love it when you can mention a client and just remember how much fun everyone had and what an impact that crowd made on all! Amy and Derk, you certainly left your footprint in Texas on your wedding day and we’re so excited to hear the rumor that you may be making your way back to Houston for job transfers in the future.

Lots of love! xoxo
