Wedding Aces Bridal Buds

Katie & Luke

April 14

Charleston, South Carolina

~~~~~~~~

Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

For the reception venue, we loved the view of the ocean!  It was such a beautiful view, and guests could stroll down to the beach if they wanted to.  The venue also had a wrap-around porch, so guests could be inside or outside.  For the church, we chose the Summerall Chapel at the Citadel because Luke went to college there.  That was something he’d always wanted to do.  We wanted to give our guests the total Charleston experience.  The wedding ceremony was downtown, so they got to see the city. 

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. I loved my dress!  I also loved that the flowers on the cake matched my dress.
  2. We also loved the large antique windows for the seating assignments.  When we bought them, they were pretty grimy and needed some TLC.  Luke was able to clean them up and have them look nice without taking away the vintage feel.  It was nice to have some homemade and semi-homemade details at the reception.
  3. The assortment of votives and vases on the dinner tables!  I really liked the look of eclectic centerpieces that still had a romantic and formal feel.

 If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

 Just have fun on the day of!  Everything is done at that point, and little things might go wrong here and there, but it truly is the best day of your life and you want to enjoy and remember every second!  Also, don’t worry about the little details, no one else will notice if something goes wrong or if something is the wrong color.

Laid-Back and Bright Virginia Beach Wedding

Virginia Beach, Virginia

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

The panoramic view of Virginia Beach is beautiful and there isn’t a better place to see the sunset.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

The flowers, the cake, and my bridesmaids’ earrings

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

It all seems like a blur to me. I do remember when Trevor, Bruce’s son who’s five, interrupted the wedding ceremony before I said my vows and told me “Heather, don’t be shy” it was so cute and unexpected, it made me laugh.

Bright Seaside Wedding in Newport, Rhode Island

Posted by Kim on Jun 21, 2012

Kathy & Eric

July 10

Castle Hill Inn, Newport, Rhode Island

~~~~~~~~

Our Q&A with the Bride:

What was the one thing about your venue that made you know it was the one?

I saw a picture on Castle Hill’s website of their ceremony site that was absolutely gorgeous with a beautiful wooden aisle lined with lanterns leading to an arch covered in flowers with the ocean as a backdrop, and I knew immediately I was looking at my wedding venue!  We recreated that look for my wedding day, and it was just exactly everything I had hoped it would be!

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

I loved my dress!  It seems a shame that brides only get to wear their beautiful gowns for one day. 

I loved my venue!  We could not have found a more beautiful place for our wedding. 

Interestingly, the third thing I would mention was the transportation we set up for our guests.  Ours was a destination wedding.  Everyone was staying at a couple hotels a good distance from the wedding/reception venue, and no one was familiar with Newport.  We thought it was incredibly important to make everything as easy as possible for our family and friends, so we provided shuttles from the hotels to the rehearsal dinner and reception and then back to the hotels again.  Our friends and family were able to fully experience the party without having to worry about finding their way in a new city or having some drinks at the reception.  From what I’ve been told, almost everyone stayed until the last shuttle of the night and the shuttle turned into quite a party bus on the ride back to the hotels!  I love that!

Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

Walking out and seeing my handsome groom waiting for me.  He looked so emotional and caught up in the moment that I couldn’t take my eyes off him the whole way down the aisle.
