~Stacey&Dave~ February 21, 2009











Stacey and Dave called me about getting married in June. They were looking to get married on the Mount Desert Island and planning was going well. Then Stacey called about moving the wedding up. Her Father was diagnosed with cancer. We worked on pushing it up to February. Since the Island is pretty much closed till May we looked at new venues. I have been wanting to work at the Retreat at French's Point since it opened. Stacey and Dave loved it and we were a go. Jessika the CEO of the Retreat was amazing and we were able to make the plans go fast and furious under the circumstances. I was sad to say that Stacey's Dad didn't make it to their wedding day. However, he gave his blessing and was excited about everything he was apart of in the planning process. The Day was beautiful and cold. Dave was wanted to have lots of photos outside and so Stacey decided to get some good old LL BEAN boots for the outdoor shots. The Band was, as always, AMAZING. The food was incredible and the atmosphere was fantastic. French's Point is an amazing venue, there staff was incredible. Stacey and Dave really wanted their guests to have a great time. They had a Photo Booth, candy buffet, and a sparkler send-off. The guest were laughing and dancing the night away. It was a blessed day and Stacey and Dave along with their family had an amazing night.

Dave and I were feeling like time was not on our side to plan the wedding we both were hoping to have, due to my Dad's illness. I called Amber and immediatly starting feeling at ease with her reassurance and confidence in what we could make happen in a short amount of time.
From the time we met Amber for the first time, Dave and I, felt that we already knew her and more importantly she already knew us! We were very mush in sync with the elegant, classic, old fashioned, but fun wedding that I wished to have.She was full of fun ideas, from candy as a favor, to an old fashioned photo booth, that was not empty for a minute!
I had read somewhere that a bride should feel like a geust at her own wedding. With Amber I didn't have a worry about the day, the events, adn could trully be a geust at my own wedding!
Thanks Amber, Stacey and Dave.
