Zach & Elizabeth Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Sometimes when you meet someone you just know. You know they were meant to be together, you know they love each other. One of the best parts of planning weddings is getting to see this over and over.

The first time I met Zach and Liz their welcoming spirit was contagious. Everyone around them feels it! They are kind, generous and most of all fun! With these two we couldn't have anything but a beautiful wedding day! We organized and designed this amazing day in Cedar Rapids, IA. The beautiful Ceremony was in the backyard of Zach's grandparents home. We danced the night away at the Downtown Double Tree in Cedar Rapids. We could not have done this without the help of all the amazing vendors!

Wendi & Matt Omaha, Nebraska

Happy 1st Anniversary!

Wow! How time flies! This is such an exciting post to share with you! Wendi & Matt were married in August last year in Omaha, Nebraska. Not only was their venue stunning, but their day was one I will never forget. Let me tell you why. 

I met Wendi in 1st grade. Going to a small private elementary school, Wendi and I did pretty much everything together. Beyond the classroom, sports, and all the extracurricular activities. Wendi and I were both farm girls. Little did I know then, but I believe this was one small fact was a big reason why the two of us remained friends even when high school separated us. Wendi and I continued to go to youth group together and in high school is when we bonded in a way that I cannot express. It is not common to find a friend that will stick through every single stage of life a true testament  our mutual faith in Jesus. But, with Wendi I have. A true blessing from the Lord! 

Wendi and I have done everything together since. After 8th grade graduation, we graduated high school the same year. Then community college together, after community college we both moved to Florida to complete our bachelor's degree. I then convinced Wendi to get a double major so we could both graduate with our bachelor's together!  4 milestones of graduations, we shared. Not long after the biggest blessing of all joined our duo. Hayden James. The absolute cutest boy you will ever meet! Hayden was born in September, and is almost 5 years old today! Every second I spend with him is one I cherish. He blesses me in so many ways, I could not be luckier to get the opportunity to love him. But, the Lord knew we weren't done adding to our family.

I will never forget the day Wendi called me to tell me about her new boyfriend. Her words "Becky, he is different." At that moment, I knew our lives had changed forever. Not long after I got the opportunity to meet Matt, and it was easy to see how they felt about one another. As a best friend, who has been around for EVERY SINGLE BOYFRIEND, it is a precious thing to watch someone you love so deeply fall in love, with the one.

I am so blessed to call her my best friend for 20 years! I never imagined I would get to be apart of her big day in this way. It was so much more than a wedding. It was a true celebration. Welcome to the family Matt! xoxo

Rachel & Seth Fort Dodge, Iowa

When your sister gets married you get the privilege of filling many shoes. I was the wedding planner, designer, decorator, Maid of Honor and sister of the bride. This wedding was such an honor to be apart of. Not only is Rachel my best friend, I have had the absolute pleasure to watch her and Seth grow not only in their relationship, but in their relationship with the Lord. Seth and Rachel started their love in High School. 

Every day after school, Rachel would get into the car in our High School parking lot and say "Oh my goodness he looked at me!" Who, I would reply. "Seth Lehman...." She would just sit there googly-eyed. One thing you will learn quickly about Rachel. She knows what she wants and there is no changing her mind. 

She exercises this in all areas of her life. Especially with Seth. It was no surprise when their 9 year relationship turned out to a forever commitment. I love them, and am honored to have Seth join our family. 

XOXO

Erin & Shawn Fort Dodge, Iowa

When I received a call from Erin this past spring, I was immediately excited to start on her wedding. Erin was soft spoken, sweet, and super gentle. Her words were so appreciative. I could not have asked for a better bride. 

Erin grew up in my same hometown, so planning a wedding at "home" was a gift in itself. I am so grateful to share just a peek of what her day was like.

This event was proudly brought to you by all these amazing vendors! 

Thanks for letting us share in your special day Shawn & Erin! Congrats! 

I am so thankful for Mostly Becky! Planning a wedding gets stressful, and I can’t imagine having someone with experience to help with the process. Becky was so helpful every step of the way. So many people commented on how stress-free my wedding day was (everyone from the mother of the bride to the photographer). Even the best man acknowledged how organized and knowledgable Becky was throughout the rehearsal and wedding day. I give Becky and her staff full credit for making everything run smoothly and allowing me (the bride) to just enjoy the day! I recommend her to anyone who is in the wedding planning process!
