Every month I select a talented wedding and/or industry related vendor to tell you about. This month, I'd to give a big shout out to two extremely talented wedding coordinators, Dee Dee Crumb & Erikka Fortenberry, the co-owners of Bowties and Lace Weddings. These two amazing ladies have worked their tails off bringing their couples spectacular weddings and events.
I truly love being able to ask vendors the questions we are all dying to know, so here are a few answered by Dee Dee and Erika.
What inspired you to start this business?
We have both always had a love for beauty and creativity. We are true artists at heart and feel totally fulfilled when we are able to express ourselves artistically. Couple that with our passion for ALL things wedding and it only seemed natural to share our talents with the world!
Share with us a favorite wedding you’ve had the honor of servicing?
We had the honor of planning the wedding of our good friends Ka’ Shawn and Michael Chambers at the Coyote Hills Golf Club in Fullerton, CA March 12 of this year. It was such a magical wedding filled with personal details that represented the couple perfectly. The colors were purple and ivory and the theme was a Storybook love. We were able to use lace and other vintage details to tell their story and create a magical atmosphere. When the bride saw how beautiful everything looked, she cried! It was a very proud moment for both of us.
How do you feel your business differs from other businesses?
Dee Dee and are very passionate about our work and take every measure possible to make sure that our brides feel particularly special and catered to not only on their big day, but also throughout the entire planning process. Wedding planning can be incredibly stressful at times, and it is always our goal to take the brunt of that stress.
We can easily take the bride’s vision and bring it to life in a way she would never imagine possible. We not only stay abreast of the current trends, but also create ways to add personal touches that represent the couple and their love and make an effort to think outside of the box when it comes to color and décor.
What is it like in the daily life of Bowties and Lace Weddings‘’?
Busy! We are constantly creating, researching and networking with other industry professionals. There are more pinterest pins and trips to Michael’s in a day for than you can imagine!
What moments makes you especially proud of your business?
This is a family business (Dee Dee is my aunt) and we are extremely proud that we have the luxury of working together and learning from each other.
And of course, the best moments are always the look on the bride’s face when she sees that we have made her vision a reality. It lets us know that all of our efforts have paid off.
