Dona Liston, owner of Lambermont Events, has spent more than 30 years in the event planning business and has made thousands of wedding dreams come true. So when her daughter, Lambermont property manager Erica Maynard got married, it would have been easy for Liston to go overboard, micromanaging every detail of the big day. Instead, the mother/daughter duo worked together, incorporating unique elements and eschewing tradition for a wedding that was a true reflection of the bride’s taste and style.
“Over-the-top is not who we are,” says Liston. “Planning this celebration wasn’t about ‘how can we outdo every wedding we’ve ever done,’ it was about, ‘how can we do it differently?’”
