We at Castleton Farms love color trends! and since it is “Flash Back Friday” we are taking you back to 2016 when the pantone color of the year was serenity blue as well as rose quarts. Here is some serenity blue wedding inspiration from Elegant Wedding Invites and one of of very own Castleton Couples. We thought they did a lovely job using this color palette!

The Importance of a Wedding Planner

hiring a wedding planner

We here at Castleton Farms cannot stress enough the importance of hiring a wedding planner! That is why our Castleton Couples are fortunate enough to get the benefit of a wedding planner included in their package when they select Castleton Farms as their wedding venue! This is a HUGE benefit to them and their families!

When setting your budget for your wedding, it is very important to factor in a wedding planner. They can ultimately save you valuable time and if you choose your wedding planner wisely they can actually save you money. If you have never planned a wedding before, it is very easy to make costly mistakes. A good wedding planner can give you solid advice on anything from vendor referrals to how many programs you should have printed based on your guest count to cut back on waste.

Wedding planners are no longer just for couples with unlimited budgets; they have become indispensable today to many brides and grooms, and well worth the expense. Hiring a planner soon after you get engaged is ideal if you have a demanding job that leaves you short on time. Wedding planning requires so many details that it can be overwhelming and take the fun out of the planning process for some. If this is you, you and your fiancee would find great value in hiring a planner.Hiring a wedding planner

Full wedding planning may not be practical or even possible for everyone so at the very least a “day of planner” could really be beneficial. Every couple is different in terms of what they need help with. Maybe you have event experience yourself or your fiancé is super organized, if so awesome! Just look at it as an insurance policy that you will get to relax and enjoy your wedding day. This should be a once in a lifetime experience and you wouldn’t want to miss a minute of the joy due to stress. Let us handle all of the details from what napkins to choose all the way to the flow of your reception formalities and truly enjoy yourself….

The services your wedding planner provides may vary slightly with each couple. Here are some of the things that you can expect from a wedding planner (but not limited to):

1. They should be your sounding board for any wedding related questions

2. Supply reputable vendor referrals

3. Design assistance (if you opt for that)

4. Liaison between you and your vendors on the wedding day

5. Itinerary creation

6. floor plan creation/assistance

7. Rehearsal Coordination

8. Full coordination of the ceremony and reception so you can enjoy your wedding day stress free!

Happy Valentine’s Day With Love

Could there be a better day than Valentine’s Day to share a glimpse into the love story of our very own Executive Director Darla Walker and her husband of 37 years, Mr. Howard Walker? We invite you to enjoy their story and these spectacular images shot in Ireland a few months ago as Darla and Howard celebrated their long lasting (and obviously still sizzling!) marriage.

At the sweet young age of 18 and 23, Darla and Howard were in love. Darla’s father, an evangelist, married them at a revival meeting in Atlanta, Georgia – Howard in blue jeans and Darla in her mama’s white dress. “We grew up together,” Darla admits, and they have. Their lives are blessed with children, grandchildren, and Darla’s beloved Castleton brides. “I didn’t have a typical wedding ceremony or a reception and I just love planning dream weddings for our Castleton families,” says Darla.

Killarney Countryside Offers Magical Moments

Their trip to Ireland was magic. To ride through the Killarney countryside in a horse drawn carriage with the one you love, stroll in and out of the ancient ruins of the Abbey, walk on moss covered paths in the National Forest, and take refuge in the arms of your beloved as the wind blows off the Irish coast is – to say the least – romantic! Then to do it all in a red dress, well, we have to admit, it just doesn’t get much better than that!View More: http://leahbullard.pass.us/walker2016

How Do You Make Love Last?

How does a relationship enjoy such staying power? There are many reasons behind successful relationships, but Darla believes her success is based on two main things: Love and respect. “I respect Howard. I build him up. And, he absolutely cherishes me,” says Darla. If you look closely at their photos, you can see it in their eyes.

We at Castleton Farms wish this kind of love and staying power to all our brides this Valentine’s Day. As you celebrate the one you love, remember to respect and build each other up. Everyday. And cherish each other. Hold each other close, protect, and lovingly care for one another and before you know it, you too will be celebrating 37 years of marriage!
