People often say it takes a village and we say, “it takes Cacky”! Truly, I cannot imagine the wedding day without Cacky. From the moment she arrived, she checked in on the joyful chaos that was a bride, 12 bridesmaids, two mothers & a flower girl getting hair and makeup done, a Father of the bride wrangling 3 dogs and keeping the groom and 12 groomsmen in the back of our little house. She steamed our daughters wedding dress, 12 bridesmaids dresses, and who knows how many groomsmens shirts & tuxes. In the middle of swirling snow and blustery winds and all the people, Cacky comes into the room with a huge smile on her face and a calming presence that words cannot explain. There isn’t a detail or timeline that slips by her. Every dress, shoe, flower, earrings for the bridesmaids were perfectly attended to and each detail for the bride were all perfectly in place for the bride to elegantly slide into for photo perfection. Each groomsman’s bow tie, boutonnière, and tux were perfectly adjusted. As the mother of the bride I truly didn’t have to do or worry about one thing. I could just focus on my sweet girl getting married. I knew Cacky was amazing and would take care of all the things but seeing the reaction of every vendor and the church when seeing the size of the wedding party when I would say, ‘We have Cacky for the day from the time we start getting ready until the last person walks out of the isle’, they all melted into a calm and smiled. Cacky not only takes care and thinks ahead of every detail for the bride and mother of the bride, but also every vendor, really everyone. The things she notices and takes care of allow everyone to enjoy the moment and take it all in. Having Cacky all day with us was a dream!
