Sarah & Steven

May 31

Waterbury, Connecticut

Q & A with the Bride:

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

Quality of food and service were very important to us. Steve and I really wanted our guests to enjoy themselves and have a good meal and celebrate our day with us. When we met with La Bella Vista, we were impressed with their desire to accommodate our needs and wants in a party.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

We really wanted our wedding to represent us as a couple. We love nothing more than hanging out at our home entertaining our friends and family, so we wanted to incorporate that into our wedding. Our first favorite detail includes our high-fiving cake toppers with our dog Bella (she was hand made by our cake baker out of icing!). High fiving simply began as a playful joke and soon after become a staple in our relationship as a sign of any accomplishment. Our second favorite detail was our wedding flowers. Agnew Florist beautifully interpreted our desire for color, especially in my bouquet. We wanted our vibrant wedding colors to pop in our photos, and our photographer Candace was able to capture our day beautifully! Our last favorite detail was our modern wedding invitations. Stacie from By Invitation Only helped us choose our all-in-one invitations from PaperSnaps and designed them to incorporate photos from our engagement session. They were the first impression for our guests, and we were thrilled with how they came out.

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

The one moment Steve and I vividly remember is when we sat at our sweetheart table after dinner was served and our cake was cut. We sat together holding hands as our guests cut loose out on the dance floor. It was amazing to watch all of our friends and family really enjoy the party we had spent the last 18 months planning. We both agree that our day was flawless from start to finish. We both wouldn’t change a thing about our wedding day, and we couldn’t be happier with each and every vendor we worked with!

Nautical-Themed Rainy Day Wedding in Connecticut

Posted by Caitlin on Jun 28, 2013

Chelsea & Bill

June 7

Mystic, Connecticut

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

It was the perfect combination of two things that made us love the venue.  Most importantly, I’d say was being right on the water – the beautiful view of the river was captivating.  (Sadly, we weren’t able to enjoy the outdoors as much as we would have liked due to the heavy rain that day.)  The second thing was the rustic feel of the reception room – we loved the unique vaulted ceilings, chandeliers and antique wooden bar.

2. Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. My bridesmaids wore different colored shoes, which were brought together by the floral arrangements

2. The centerpieces – many people collected clear and blue vases for us over the past year, so that we could have the eclectic, colorful arrangements I had imagined.  My dad made the wood circles.  And lastly, the table numbers were photos of Bill and I at that age.

3. The arbor – my dad made it with wood and wrought iron (his signature touch since he is a farrier/blacksmith).  We love that we will be able to have this piece from our wedding day in our backyard.

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

Our love story during the ceremony – our officiant, who is a romance novelist, wrote a “love story” from questionnaires we filled out, which basically told the history of our relationship.  The story she created was amazing,and it made our guests laugh quite a bit.  It epitomizes the atmosphere that we wanted for our wedding – thoughtful, personalized and fun.
