Scott Anderson spent his life feeling as if he missed meeting his great love by just moments.  Lisa Anderson dreamt of Prince Charming and wanted to fall in love so deeply that life would feel like a fairytale.  Having both been married with children, they knew the value of love, and just how rare and fragile it could be.  Both believed it had passed them by.

But then, as a business trip came to a close, Scott spotted Lisa across a casino floor.  Their eyes locked, and a whirlwind love affair that took both of them (along with their family and friends) by storm ensued.  Within months the two were traveling the world, splitting their time between Las Vegas, Nebraska, Florida, and the Caribbean.  

Soon thereafter, Scott proposed to Lisa with a breathtaking diamond ring, and together we set off to plan a grand affair.  Scott told me he wanted to bring Lisa's fairytale to life; a true Prince Charming of a groom!

Sometimes, however, bigger isn't better.  As time marched on, it became clear that we were planning the wedding everyone thought they should have, and not the wedding that they really wanted.  And so we stopped.  Literally, just stopped all planning and put the entire thing on hold.  We took time to breathe.  We reimagined the entire wedding, and in the end Lisa married Scott in a fairytale they wrote together, in their own castle of a home, surrounded by only their closest family and friends.

Fear not, however!  We didn't abandon the Cinderella celebration all together!  With a 3 day load in and 2 day tear down, we transformed the Anderson Home with truck loads of flowers, tier upon tier of wedding cake, and a full feast prepared on site by the culinary geniuses of the Four Seasons Las Vegas.  Guests arrived by shuttle and were greeted by butlers, who shaded them by umbrella as they fetched a welcome libation and made their way into the home.  There, the great room was transformed into a lush ceremony with arches of of flowers, a quartet, and an opera singer who's rendition of Ave Maria took Lisa around their balcony and to her groom.  As the shared their first kiss, a cascade of rose petals came falling down around them.

Guests moved to the second floor of the home where thee enjoyed sushi,  hand passed hors d'oeuvres, and an open bar.  When they returned downstairs, the space had once again been transformed, with long king's tables filling the great room, the family room, and the sun room. Towering rows of candelabras topped with round florals were connected by smaller groupings of flowers, garland, and candles.  Two tiers of chargers were topped with scrolled menus, and each guest found a glass topped platter with and individual glass slipper made of sugar set atop a macaroon pillow.  

Afterwards, Lisa changed out of her Sottero and Midgley ballgown and into an Allure Couture reception dress.  She met Scott at their 6 foot tall wedding cake, which they cut, kissed beside, and from where they addressed their guests with a heat-felt thank you.   They lead their guests back downstairs where they shared their first dance in the once again transformed living space.  Around the pool, guests relaxed in luxe lounge furniture, watching floating lanterns move across the water.   Some sought refuge in the open air tent topped with twinkle lights and ivory satin. At the end of the evening, our bride and groom escaped in a horse drawn carriage.  

They say that once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives you a fairytale.  Scott and Lisa allowed me play Fairy Godmother to their dreams, and it was an honor, a privilege, and quite honestly an absolute blast making those dreams come true!

Always....
