Hey there from the behind the scenes sister Katie. I swear I do exist, my life is just a little chaotic with juggling my full time Sr. Assistant Buying job in Dallas, recently getting married, and getting Kaktos Rose going with Ash! It’s safe to say since I was a little girl I have dreamed of having my own business and even going to school for Fashion Merchandising to now seeing this dream finally come true with my sister by my side following in our mother's footsteps! What more could you ask for right?!!
That being said with recently planning our wedding **sigh of relief that’s over** I knew from the beginning I wanted to have a lot of pieces from Kaktos Rose in the wedding... Not only because well duh it’s our company but because it helped give our wedding those extra personalized details to make it truly OUR day and special to us...but also without breaking the bank, which is a BIG WIN! That is one thing I love most about Kaktos Rose as well as our ability to help you personalize any occasion!
While creating the vision for our wedding, it at times got pretty overwhelming (especially with Pinterest these days...am I right?). I knew from the start I definitely wanted a big CHEERS sign by the bar, and of course one of our top sellers a cake topper (which being steel we can wash and reuse!). However my favorite piece at our wedding was the custom You Are The Best Thing script wall sign, which is the name of our first dance song by Ray LaMontage! I even got this engraved on the inside of Logan’s wedding band. This was my favorite in so many ways - as it was the perfect backdrop at our reception, our first dance, and a song that not only is our favorite but means a lot to us.
Another area we were able to utilize Kaktos Rose was with our metal table numbers. With our reception outside and of course not being able to predict the Texas weather, we knew we couldn’t just have paper table numbers or anything that would blow over easily. We were able to create the perfect table numbers that we could bend to stand up, and since the numbers were made of steel, we knew they wouldn’t blow over. It turned out better than I could have imagined!!
Our wedding day was seriously THE BEST DAY EVER (cliché I know, but it’s true). Despite it being super hot, we couldn’t have imagined the day any better! From my dream dress by Hayley Paige, to the perfect Historic Home venue, to the clouds clearing right before the ceremony, the yummy George’s food, to DJ Questionmark killing it and having the dance floor packed all night, Dove Bars and cake galore, to our favorite Whataburger late night food, and the most AMAZING Kaktos Rose details that made the whole vision come together and most importantly marrying my best friend!! It’s safe to say my feet still hurt from dancing the night away and my cheeks sore from laughing and smiling all day!
