Brigid is the BEST! I’ve witnessed her proficiency in multiple weddings, most notably my sister’s and my own. She truly makes things seamless and handles all logistics in a calm manner. Her expertise is easily noticeable. She’s the one who thought of all the little things that everyone else forgot. She makes it all happen without the added stress. I highly recommend Brigid!
Brigid and Karen are truly the best! I can honestly say they made wedding planning fun and as stress free as possible. We attend a lot of weddings and truly nothing compares to the attention the give each aspect of the day to personalize the experience for guests and also ensure everything runs seamlessly. Beyond their expertise in planning and design, Brigid and Karen were both wonderful to work with. They were reassuring, consistent, and calm advisors on big and little decisions. They helped us select amazing vendors and brought everything together. I had a very clear vision for our wedding and Brigid and Karen understood it immediately. They helped my to priorities our rentals and extras while not sacrificing the over aesthetic or impact. They also suggested additional ideas to take everything one step further. From my perspective our wedding day was perfect. Maybe things went wrong but I truly will never know because Brigid and Karen are truly that good.
Karen is literally the best. From start to finish, she was extremely helpful, professional, friendly, and knowledgeable! I would not have been able to have the wedding of my dreams without her support, planning, and advice leading up to the wedding, and without her organization and and skill managing every aspect of it on the day of. I can't say enough great things about her. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a great wedding planner and friend!
Hi Brigid! Just got back from the honeymoon and back to reality. Reaching out to THANK YOU sooo much for everything you did for our wedding. It was absolutely perfect and we could not have done it without you and your team! Thank you for your endless support and guidance throughout the process and for being our wing woman day of. Hope all is well and the season is starting to slow down for you! Jessica & Scott
Brigid and Karen are the dream team. We would have been so lost without them. They are unbelievably organized and had the very best recommendations for other vendors to work with. I loved how honest they were with me throughout the entire process. They were not afraid to say "that's a waste of money" or "I think you'll regret that choice". I truly cannot recommend them enough. The best single example of their flexibility and can do attitude came during our reception. After the father/daughter dance and during the mother/son dance my grandma came to me and said my grandpa would like to have a dance with me too. I told Brigid what was going on and she was able to coordinate with the band to announce another dance and picked the perfect song based on my description of "slow and short". She did this in about 60 seconds. None of our guests knew that this dance wasn't originally planned as part of the evening. It was seamless. The dance ended up being something I'll always cherish being able to share with my grandpa and I'm so thankful Brigid was able to make it happen. Our wedding day was absolutely perfect and that wasn't because there were zero hiccups, it was because the team from i-do took care of any issue before I even knew something had happened. They are the absolute best!!!
"Thank you for all you did to keep our planning on track and for keeping us organized. You and the team did a great job moving the ceremony chairs off the covered pool in time for cocktails and dancing. We had a wonderful day and so much fun!" --Rhonda (Mother of the Bride)
"The absolute best decision we made was to hire i-do Wedding & Events for our wedding planners! Everything we wanted our daughter’s wedding to be and had envisioned - they brought to life perfectly. Their design knowledge, professionalism and organization skills make them top-of-the-line wedding planners. We had so many ideas, decor and personal touches that we wanted to incorporate into the wedding day. They worked their magic in setting up and executing everything we wanted into a stunning, customized setting. From the minute we signed up with them, they gave excellent vendor recommendations that started bringing our dream wedding to life. Every recommended vendor we chose was perfect and the time savings in narrowing down those choices was significant! On top of that, they made sure everything was on schedule at numerous meetings we had with the vendors and our venue over a 12 month period. They helped develop a detailed timeline for us which helped everyone (vendors, venue, wedding party, etc) stay on schedule and made the wedding day flow flawlessly. At the end of the night, the I-Do team packed everything up for us (27 boxes in all) as we went on with the post-wedding after-party celebration. I can’t say enough about everything they did for us and how they made our day completely stress-free. We are truly grateful they were by our side for the past year and especially on our wedding day." --Mary (Mother of the Bride)
"You guys rock!!! We can't thank you enough for all you did. Two ceremonies, the Barat, an afternoon lunch, and an evening reception with 400 guests is a lot to handle in one day - but you made it fun. If anything went wrong, I didn't know about it and our guests had a blast. Thank you for an amazing day!" --Jenna (Bride)
Our Design Inspiration...
Gorgeous watercolor Save the dates and invitations set the tone for this wedding. We were inspired by the bright pops of color in tones of pink, green and robin's egg blue. Our favorite element was the watercolor monogram we were able to incorporate into everything from the escort and menu cards to the cocktail napkins and pillows on the lounge furniture. The color theme also carried over into the flowers, whimsical green and white charger plates and blush pink fabric draping on the ceiling of the tent. All of these custom touches created a romantic feeling that enchanted everyone as the sun went down behind a pink and purple streaked sky. The guests danced the night away under the stars in the soft glow of candlelight drinking His & Hers signature drinks - Tom's Maker's Mark Bourbon Old Fashioned and Alie's Kir Royale.
Our Design Inspiration...
One of our favorite design elements from this wedding was the custom photo booth Boxwood Hedge backdrop that fit the aesthetic of Ault Park perfectly. The color palette of blush, ivory, and gold gave the wedding an elegant, garden feel. As with all of our Ault Park weddings, we used low centerpieces to prevent potential floral disasters. The notoriously unpredictable "Pavilion" winds often topple taller arrangements used at weddings there. For this same reason, we chose to use a gold-framed seating chart on an easel inside vs. paper escort cards prone to blowing away. Lucky for us - the weather was beautiful that day!
"i-do Weddings was a pleasure to work with! They were always quick to respond to inquiries and very accommodating. Ault Park Pavilion is beautiful but requires a lot of vendors and moving parts to throw a wedding. They gave me so much comfort and support leading up to the wedding. When the wedding day came, their performance exceeded my expectations exponentially! They were in complete control and always a step ahead! I could not have enjoyed my special day as much as I did without them." --Kristin (Bride)

"Thanks soooo much for all your help with our "multiple ceremonies" wedding day. See you when my daughter gets engaged! Considering she will be going on to pre-med when she graduates next year, then med school, then a residency and more than likely a fellowship, it may be a few years - but you will be my first call." --Josie (Mother of the Groom)
"I cannot begin to thank you for all that you guys did for us. Here we were, planning a wedding in less than five months in a country where we are not even from! You both were exactly who we needed! Not only did you make this amazing wedding happen, but you gave us the support and attention we needed. With my medicine residency and Abba’s job in Little Rock as a busy hospitalist, we could not fathom how we would ever have a wedding and that two-day affair! Both events were spectacular!!! Everything went so smoothly without any hitches. Both of us and our families could not have hoped for better planning. Thank you so very much! You both made our dream wedding come true!" --Fizza (Bride)
Brigid, of I-do Weddings is the BEST! She is an amazing listener and makes you feel at ease with knowing that she understands your vision. My daughter's wedding was a mashing success thanks to Brigid's understanding what we wanted and making sure that it came to life. She is very patient and makes valuable suggestions for all aspects of the wedding including suggestions for venue, rehearsal dinner, cake, photographer, videographer, ceremony, and reception, to name a few. Her fantastic organizational skills and calm demeander kept everything on schedule during all phases of the ceremony and reception. Our guests had so much fun! If you want top notch service and a beautiful outcome, I would highly recommend Brigid and I-do Weddings and Events. We are SO HAPPY with the experience we had!
