I sat down with Nicole Samolis, CSEP (our Founder and Creative Director), to talk about the worst near disaster(s) that she and her event team have had to deal with at weddings. A few weddings came to mind, the most memorable one was that of Olivia & Derek's big day.
"We contacted the groom, as he was our main point of contact, and we let him know what was going on and assured him that we were looking at other venues," Nicole said. In circumstances such as this, a planner's connections become invaluable as he/she tries to find alternatives and eliminate potential disasters. Within thirty minutes, Nicole was able to secure another wedding locale; a beautiful, warm, church-turned-venue, that was actually one of the places the couple had considered for their wedding.
cake-less wedding, they went to CNY's favorite supermarket(Wegmans), bought multiple small cakes, arranged them beautifully along with other delicacies on the dessert table. Guests never noticed and the bride was very happy with the outcome, given the circumstances!
