Amanda and Josh’s Wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Coralville, Iowa

October Wedding at the Hyatt Regency in Coralville, Iowa

Frosty Beginnings to Forever

During their junior year of college at Iowa State in 2019, Amanda and Joshua were brought together on a snowy winter day while sledding. The two reminisced about their high school days and discussed their life ambitions. Little did they know that this snowy adventure would become the foundation of their incredible love story.

Their first official date, a pivotal moment in their relationship, was at an arcade. The battleground was set, and they battled fiercely for the coveted title of Mario Kart Champion. Each race was intense, with one win each under their belts, and the final race determined it all. As the race reached its climax, with the finish line just feet away, Joshua was in the lead, and Amanda was in a close second, armed with a menacing red shell. She released the shell, hitting Joshua with precision, and sped past him, shouting, “Suck it!” Victory was undeniably hers, and they both knew this was the start of something extraordinary.

Day of Coordination

Every love story is unique, and Amanda and Josh’s journey to their wedding day was no exception. They dreamed of a beautiful and stress-free wedding celebrating their love in front of friends and family. To turn their dreams into reality, they knew they needed a wedding planning team that could execute their vision flawlessly. After meeting with Emily, owner of Soirée Wedding Planning, they knew she would be a great asset. The couple chose The Essentials Package.

Amanda and Josh’s decision to choose Emily and her team at Soirée Wedding Planning was the best they could have made. Their wedding day was a beautiful and stress-free celebration of love, thanks to Emily and her team’s expert coordination and dedication. The couple’s dream wedding was realized with precision, care, and a touch of personalization that truly made their day unforgettable.
