Rebecca and Anthony, January 2019, Waterworks by Cescaphe – Philadelphia, PA

You may have heard me say more than once (maybe a lot!) that it is never too early to book us for Wedding Day Management.  Our “Day of Details” package includes communication with your Day of Coordinator from the day you sign your contract up until wedding day so even if you aren’t looking for customized wedding planning, you still feel like you have a Wedding Planner available to ask questions concerning wedding day items.  Bride and Groom Anthony and Rebecca reached out to me in summer of 2017 to discuss my different packages and what would work best for them.   Even though they had over a year and half till their January 2019 wedding, they wanted to make sure they had someone booked to help with those wedding day questions, the final details of their wedding planning process as well as someone hired to make sure wedding day went smoothly.   Since the couple was enjoying wedding planning and did not need assistance with finding their wedding day vendors, our “Day of Details” package was a perfect fit for their needs.  (If you are wondering what the difference is between “customized wedding planning” and “wedding day management” – email me at  I would be happy to send over our brochures that details everything!)

As I told the couple many times during our communication over the 17 or so months till their wedding day, the planning process would go very quick and before we all knew it, it was January 12th, 2019 and wedding day for Anthony and Rebecca!  As I mentioned, Anthony and Rebecca did all the wedding planning on their own and secured an amazing team of wedding professionals for us to work alongside with.  First, they choose a gorgeous venue to host their wintry wedding day – Waterworks by Cescaphe, which overlooks the Schuylkill River and Boathouse Row and offers clients the service and menu of their exclusive caterer Cescaphe.   We have actually worked with Cescaphe on several weddings (with more to come in 2019!) and knew that Rebecca and Anthony’s food and reception service was in good hands with the Cescaphe team.  For the entertainment and decor, the couple choose Tom from Party Time Entertainment (the dance floor was packed all night!) and Beautiful Blooms to design the seasonal look of the wedding.  Mike from Michael Simons Video Productions was amazing to work with for video for the day and we can’t say enough about the gorgeous photos from Dave Shay Photography.   We can’t be sure but we think Dave and Mike may have been a little too excited for the snow to start falling and getting to shoot the Bride and Groom in the winter weather.

As the girls on my team know very well, I personally am not a fan of winter and the company does not take on many winter weddings because of the fear of bad weather, driving in the snow, etc.  I am so happy I did not let this fear of the elements keep me from working with Rebecca and Anthony.  They were so grateful for my assistance throughout the entire time I had to work with them and even on wedding day and after showed their appreciation to my team and myself.  Thank you to Rebecca and Anthony for choosing Diamonds and Details as your Wedding Day Management team and for allowing us to share in your beautiful wedding day and meet your family and friends.  We are so excited for what the future brings you and wish you many, many days of (warm, snow free – haha) happiness!
