The Details On….The Diamonds and Details Team! Meet Steph!

image1-2It’s time for another introduction of one of the Diamonds and Details team members!  We are excited to introduce our newest team member – Stephanie Braceland!   

MEET: Stephanie Braceland, Assistant Day of Coordinator at Diamonds and Details

Stephanie started in the wedding industry as a photographer 6 years ago, but after planning her own wedding, she fell in love with that side of the industry and felt it was a time to make a change.  Looking for advice as to how to get into the planning side, Stephanie reached out to Diamonds and Details owner Amanda for some direction. (Stephanie and Amanda actually knew each other – Stephanie went to college with Amanda’s brother and Amanda planned one of Stephanie’s best friend’s wedding.)  Amanda was actually in the process of growing the Diamonds and Details team and loved the unique experience Stephanie could bring from the photography side of the industry.  (Let’s just say our Instagram posts look a lot better since Stephanie joined the team!)  Now, with a few weddings under her belt (and more to come this year and next!),  Stephanie is becoming a valuable member of the Diamonds and Details team.  She is excited to continue her work as one of Amanda’s Wedding Day of Assistants as well as pursue the possibility of taking on her own Wedding Day of Coordination clients in the future.

Quick fire responses —

  1. When you’re not working, what are you doing? “Going to HomeGoods and TJ Maxx. I love decorating my new house! Walking around my neighborhood and petting every dog I come in contact with. You get extra points in my book if you bring your pets to your wedding!”
  2. What’s your coffee order? “Iced Hazelnut coffee …… with an extra shot of expresso!!”
  3. Fun fact? “My husband and I got married in August 2017 at the Reading Terminal Market.”
  4. What’s 1 thing you can’t live without? “My handsome puppy cat Oliver. He is a dog trapped in a cat body!
  1. Where is your favorite place to be? “I am very much a homebody and love my bed however, I equally love the beach just as much. I also live for live music and try to go to as many concerts as possible!”

If you ever can’t find Stephanie for a few hours, she’s probably on her couch binge watching the latest marathon of Say Yes to the Dress or Four Weddings! She has always been a lover of everything wedding and reality wedding shows are her favorite! It’s the most important day in people’s lives and she loves seeing all the details.

Stephanie’s favorite wedding trends are: lots of color and foodie surprises! She loves to see pops of color in the details – this is her creative side coming out!  As for foodie surprises: “Food trucks, fun desserts, end of the night treats! YESSSS!!!!”Food surprises are so much fun and a way to keep guests engaged and guessing at your wedding – little surprises and special details like that make your wedding memorable!

When asked the age-old question of “what’s your favorite venue,” Stephanie continues to show her creative and fun personality – although she loves a beautiful and romantic venue and always enjoys a barn wedding – Stephanie really loves when a couple picks a more untraditional, unconventional, and unique venue that are not traditionally used for wedding.  (Case in point – Stephanie’s wedding venue was the Reading Terminal Market!).

Stephanie’s favorite part of the wedding day is the first look/Groom’s reaction to first seeing his bride walk down the aisle. Everyone is always so busy looking at the gorgeous Bride that it’s special to take a second and watch the Groom see his soon-to-be wife for the first time. She has a love for music as well so it’s always fun for her to listen to which songs the couple chooses for the special moments throughout the day! Her one piece of advice to all couples is that this day will be the most perfect day and if something does not go as planned, no one else will know! Also, during the reception, stop and look around – really take in all the love that is surrounding you because the day goes by so fast!
