An At-Home Wedding with Katie Martin of Elegance & Simplicity

I am back with more at-home wedding advice for you from wedding guru Katie Martin of Elegance & Simplicity, Inc. Elegance & Simplicity just celebrated it’s 15 year anniversary, so its safe to say that Katie has seen a lot and knows her stuff. Not only does Katie excel at event planning, she is also a floral designer, the editor of Eco-Beautiful Weddings e-magazine and blog, and an all around eco-friendly maven. Katie and her team serve the greater Washington, DC and Baltimore areas and the Dominican Republic.

Here are the ways to find Katie around the world wide web and beyond:

And here is some at-home wedding advice from Katie:
If you are looking to use your barn or large shed as a wonderful backdrop to your wedding day, be prepared for having to bring in a lot of vendors to help make all your wedding dreams come true (like portable restroom trailers and power sources like generators along with electricians on call for power outages).  If you are on a tighter budget, also be prepared to roll up your sleeves to do a lot of cleaning, weeding, painting and planting.
