Have you ever seen photos of a “real wedding” and thought, “WHAT! I thought perfect wasn’t achievable?!” Well, here you have it, folks. Danielle & Toby were a dream to work with from the very beginning, & their all-star list of vendors goes to show that hiring the best vendors according to your vision for your day will ensure a flawless day.

Danielle & Toby said their I do's on May 5, 2018, at St. Paul’s Cathedral before throwing the best party of their lives at the Birmingham Botanical Gardens with their beloved friends & family who traveled far to celebrate the ones they love.

In all honesty, and I’m not just saying this, but anyone I know who gets engaged here, I tell them about the Library Card. It seriously was so worth it, and almost all of our vendors were in the Engaged collection, so it ended up saving us a good amount of money. I told Toby multiple times during the planning process, “I’m so glad I randomly called Engaged to see if their store sold engagements gifts for my cousin because that card came in handy!” My second piece of advice is meet with a few planners and really figure out who understands you & your vision the best. On wedding day, things come up, & if you have someone you feel confident in who knows you, trust me - you won’t be stressed because you know they’ll handle it and that it’s going to be beautiful even if things have to change on the wedding day!
