Let the planning begin! Abby is a planner. She loves making lists and organizing. So planning her wedding was extremely exciting! Calvin and Abby’s wedding story is truly amazing. Remember, they had only been together for 6 weeks before Calvin proposed. If you haven’t caught up yet, go back and start with Episode 1 of the Live Love Lyman Series!
Spring Break was important for a few reasons. First and foremost, Calvin was going to meet Abby’s family for the first time! At this point, Calvin hadn’t even met her parents in person. He did call to ask for her hand in marriage, but he hadn’t been to Washington yet. Second, they had to get moving on wedding planning! Abby’s original plan was to have the ceremony at her church and the reception at CenterPlace, a local event center. Both the event center and the church were beautiful. The problem was they were big empty spaces that would need some decoration. Abby, as a photographer, knew they would need quite a few things to help fill the open spaces. After seeing the venues in person, she was excited, but she had difficulty picturing her wedding.
After returning to Oklahoma from Spring Break, Abby started looking at some other venues but still couldn’t decide. So she stumbled upon www.eventective.com, filled out their online form, and waited for a response. Within 30 minutes, she received an email from the Glover Mansion. The email told her that the venue had her date available. They were even offering a discount for their open dates to finish booking their summer calendar! Since Abby was in Oklahoma, her mom (Treneé) met the venue coordinator and took a tour. The venue looked great, and the staff was so friendly! Not only that, but they agreed to give us an even more significant discount if we booked with them immediately! We were over the moon! Our whole wedding could be in the same place, and we didn’t have to decorate ourselves!
Everything was coming together perfectly! Come back next week for more about their dream wedding!
