Paige + Mike | Mission Inn Resort – Howey-in-the-Hills, Florida | S&S Photography
I had the absolute pleasure of planning this beautiful wedding alongside Paige and her mom, Debbie. I have to say, now that the wedding is over, I miss them! We had so much fun over the course of about a year picking out vendors, eating yummy cake, playing with pretty linen and so much more.
Mike and Paige met online and things just took off from there! Paige is a nurse and Mike is in law enforcement, so they’re basically perfect for each other! Paige is such a sweet gal; so kind and down to earth. Mike was also so dang nice and was very involved in the planning process, which I love!
Their wedding was a larger affair of almost 200 guests. The ceremony took place in the beautiful Plaza de la Fontana at Mission Inn. We were to thrilled that the rain cleared up just in time for the ceremony! These two said “I do” in front of a stunning willow arch hand crafted by Flowers by Lesley, surrounded by their family and friends. It was such a beautiful ceremony! Afterwards, guests enjoyed cocktail hour in Plaza de las Palmas while the newlyweds got to golf cart around property to capture so beautiful formals. Dinner and dancing took place in the Grand Ballroom and the space was completely transformed. White Rose provided light pink uplighting and a beautiful monogram that was displayed on draping behind their sweetheart table. Flowers by Lesley created a mixture of high and low centerpieces that complimented the blush linen and gold chiavari chairs perfectly. Party Flavors provided a stunning wedding cake, with gold and blush accents and sugar flowers. They also created a super cool groom’s cake fit for an officer! Sweet by Holly provided delicious cupcakes guests got to take home and enjoy after the wedding (my fave!!!). The entire day was perfect and I was so happy to have been a part of it! Congrats Mr. and Mrs. Perales!

From the bride…“Booking Katie with Big Day Celebration was the BEST decision we made for our wedding. We spent almost a year with Katie planning our wedding at Mission Inn and she was more than perfect. Wedding planning was not stressful at all because we had her to help us. She went with us to multiple vendor meetings, was always available by phone or text, and always had a quick response to our many questions! She is incredibly knowledgeable about weddings as she has great prior experience. She has an outgoing, fun, and energetic personality that makes her a perfect fit for a wedding planner for any type of wedding! Prior to the wedding she contacted every vendor and made sure all of our vendors would arrive on time. She also made a very detailed (and perfect) wedding itinerary that she sent to every vendor and I. Once our wedding weekend arrived, she came to our rehearsal and made sure everyone knew exactly what to expect for wedding day. Katie was more than prepared the day of the wedding. She texted me first thing in the morning to see how I was doing and if I needed anything. She had a large emergency kit for any bride which came in handy for my wedding day. She also made sure everything was put in place exactly where I wanted it (guest book, photos, etc). She brought all the cards and gifts to my room before the night ended. She also made sure all of our vendors received their gratuity envelopes before the end of the night. Having her eliminated so much stress off of my mom and I. I truly cannot imagine how stressful wedding planning would have been if I didn’t have Katie to help us. Do yourself favor and book her. You will not be disappointed and she will make sure you have the wedding of your dreams! Thank you Katie!!”
