Meet Caroline: Wedding Day Assistant and CWP in Training
A wedding planning team that genuinely cares about their clients creates magic, and we are excited to introduce our dedicated, Night and Daye Events team to you each month on the blog! Third in our introduction series is our Wedding Day Assistant and Lead Wedding Planner in Training: Caroline Lessmann!
Caroline is an essential part of the NDE team on wedding days and is currently training to be a Lead Wedding Planner! Caroline grew up in Virginia Beach and recently graduated from William and Mary in 2018. She has been running competitively since high school and has completed 4 half marathons and 1 full marathon. Caroline has loved planning and weddings for as long as she can remember. She used to plan her playdates with her neighborhood friends when she was 10, and she decided to be a wedding planner after seeing the movie 27 Dresses! Caroline fell in love with William and Mary because of her love for history and tradition and double majored in history and psychology. It was pure luck and meant to be that she found Night and Daye Events in Williamsburg too!
Caroline’s excitement for wedding planning is contagious. She says that “planning isn’t work for me, it’s fun!” Caroline wants nothing more than to take the stress out of her couple’s wedding and make sure that their celebration is a party. She believes that “weddings are all about celebrating your love with family and friends and good music.” She loves songs that people know and are comfortable with to get them out on the dance floor!
Caroline loves all things historical, so her personal favorite weddings are plantation weddings. Caroline actually hopes to own and operate her own wedding venue one day on historical property to blend her love for history and wedding planning! Her dream venue is “beautiful, a little hilly with flowers and lots of trees, hopefully with water and a dock. I would string lights across posts or in the trees so when you look up you would see a blanket of light.” Definitely not a hopeless romantic….
Caroline’s advice to couples is to remember that your family may be an important part of your wedding, but, most importantly, your wedding is your day. You should celebrate and have fun on your wedding day, so don’t incorporate others’ ideas that you know you wouldn’t enjoy. Second, though Caroline loves tradition, she recommends having a first look to get pictures as a couple before the ceremony so that couples can enjoy cocktail hour and reception with their guests!
