Moe and Rob, May 2018, The Franklin Institute, Philadelphia, PA

With less than 2 months before their wedding day, Bride Moe reached out to Diamonds and Details for help with wedding day of coordination.  Moe and her fiancé Rob were in the process of becoming Doctors and working many hours as Residents.  Moe was based out of NYC and Rob was in Philadelphia.  Moe also had a trip to South America on her calendar right before the wedding and felt, along with day of coordination, she really needed someone to bring all the final details of their wedding planning together.  I am a true believer in “everything happens for a reason” and this was definitely the case with meeting Moe.

Rob and Moe’s wedding date was May 5th – Cinco de Mayo, a very popular wedding weekend and one that we are usually booked for months (or even a year) in advance.  This year however, we somehow were still available when Moe reached out.  (Funny enough, the day after Moe and Rob signed their contract, I received 2 emails from Brides asking if we were available for day of coordination for May 5th.)  From the very first emails exchanged and from the several phone calls discussing her wedding day needs (and maybe a little off topic discussion on NY Football teams (a favorite of both of us!)), I knew that there was a reason the calendar left this particular wedding weekend available.  I immediately clicked with Moe and couldn’t wait to finalize all the details for Rob and her and take the last-minute stress off their shoulders.

Thankfully all came together in the final weeks before the wedding (who says you can’t do your tasting with the caterer last-minute – much thanks to Frog Commissary for pulling this off!) and Rob and Moe had a ridiculously fun fiesta themed wedding day celebration with some of the coolest friends and family we have ever worked with!  Special thanks to photographer Brittney Raine for her photos – she knocked it out of the park with capturing all the little details, the uniqueness the Franklin Institute offers as a  venue and the intimate moments between Bride and Groom throughout the wedding day.  (A very special addition to wedding day was Moe and Rob’s 4 legged child – “Duncan”.  I don’t think Moe would argue with me when I say, Duncan may have won “Best Dressed” for the festivities.)

Congrats to Moe and Rob on a beautiful wedding day!  Thank you for choosing me to work with you and letting my team partake in your wedding day celebration and the opportunity to meet your family and friends.   We wish you many happy (and especially) healthy days ahead filled with long dog walks with Duncan and hopefully some breaks from busy night shifts at new doctors!
