When your high school best friend texts you a picture of her engagement ring, you scream with excitement.
When you high school best friend asks you to assist with her wedding, you are beyond grateful and speechless... and lets get real, you scream with excitement all over again!
The Bride (Amy) and Lucee Blue Events owner (Brittany) were best friends in high school and have stayed friends since. This is one of those friendships that start right back up where they left it off the last time they saw each other. Amy is one of the most genuine people. So it's only natural that she found another genuine person to spend her life with. Brian is exactly the right person!
First looks get me EVERY. TIME. Especially when there are tears! <3 <3 <3
This wedding could not have been more awesome to be a part of! First and foremost, Lucee Blue Events got to travel back up North, this time to a beautiful Lake Michigan scene!
Can you even handle this view?!?! Nature at it's best! <3
The day started a little gloomy as we all wished the rain away. The outdoor ceremony space was set up in the garden area of the venue with a few floral arrangements. The couple wanted the ceremony to be short and sweet and the partying to last forever. The plan was to have a standing ceremony, so we designed a simple aisle.
Unfortunately, the storm came JUST as the ceremony was going to start, so we were unable to use this beautiful space. Good news: the reception area was just as beautiful! All guests took their seats and the short and sweet ceremony took place in front of their head table. You really can't be too upset about a change in space when your backdrop is Lake Michigan :)
Calling all puzzle fans! Check out this incredible guestbook!
The tables were set with lanterns and candles, fully incorporating the lake theme with rocks and sand. As the sunlight faded, the awesome purple uplighting made this space the party atmosphere they envisioned.
The dance floor was never empty and every guest left happy. The newlywed couple and some of their closest friends ended the night at a local brewery to continue the memories.
Lucee Blue Events was honored to be a part of Amy and Brian's big day. More specifically, I (Brittany) could not have been happier to be there and check this occasion off of my lifetime list.
From high schoolers that only worried about Student Council, shifts at Dairy Queen, sports, and who was dating who... to adults with full time jobs, houses, a husband, and real life plans. Forever a best friend in my heart - Love you Amy! So happy for you! Thank you for letting me be a part of your day!!!
Special thanks to all involved!

Blog post #1! I am so glad that you stopped by the site and decided to take a look at some of my work. I decided to lump together some previous work to give you a small glimpse into why this is my passion.
I've spent years of my life knowing that I wanted an education, but didn't necessarily knowing what I wanted to do for the rest of my life. Throughout my years of indecisive and expensive education, the one constant I had was my creativity. Finally, after exploring the hospitality industry, I found the light. I decided to go back to school and obtain a Hospitality Administration degree, where I completed an internship with a local wedding planner. I fell in love quicker than I thought possible! Through that internship I realized my need for creativity and love for organization could come together. I finally found what I was MEANT to do.
So, I came up with Lucee Blue Events and I am diving head first into every opportunity I am given. I have an incredible support system and everyone involved continues to give me chances to showcase my talent. Prior to the 2015 wedding season, I created a few birthday parties and baby showers.
Take a look at some tidbits from those events!

Couldn't get enough "boy" elements into this baby shower:
Incredible fun and delicious waffle bar at a bridal shower:
Short and sweet for now, but keep your eyes peeled for Lucee Blue Events' next blog - the Albritton wedding!
