Intimate, Country Club Wedding in Florida

Posted by Caitlin on Oct 04, 2012

Mandy & Christopher 

August 24

Tampa, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

1. Which four details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Table Numbers: each table number was a significant date in our relationship for example, 27 was the day in January Christopher and I met.

2. Cake: I wanted it to really stand out. My girlfriend, Elise, made the whole thing and designed it. When she showed it to me, I think my jaw dropped. I was so excited and thought it was perfect!

3. Guests couldn’t see this, but Christopher had a picture of us when he asked me to marry him and wrote on the back to use this as my something old. It was “old” because we were no going to be husband and wife. It was so sweet and thoughtful! 

4. My husband and the lead singer of the band wrote a song for me and sang it to me as a surprise at the reception. It was called, “Southern Belle.” Not only was I in tears, but the guests as well! 

2. Give us the one moment from your wedding day that you cannot stop thinking about. 

I can’t stop thinking about the moment I saw Chris waiting for me before the first look. He looked so handsome and nervous, which he NEVER is! When he took off the blindfold, and we looked at each other, it was the best moment any bride could ever ask for. We were both speechless and had tears in our eyes.

Glamorous White Wedding in Palm Beach, Florida

Posted by Kim on Aug 09, 2012

Carla & Aaron

November 5

Palm Beach Gardens, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q&A with the Bride:

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

Our venue is beautiful from the second you pulled onto the grounds.  Their landscaping was perfect and the club house was gorgeous.  We wanted a destination wedding and our venue made you feel like you were at a resort.

 Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. Having all-white decor made everything very elegant
  2. I loved the overload of candles -so romantic.
  3. No cake!  I had an ice cream machine and dessert bar instead.

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

Be different!  I stayed away from a traditional wedding and made it my own.  You can keep some traditions that are important to you, but add something different that your guest will always remember.

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

The dancing!  From our first dance to shaking it all night.

July 7

Ottawa, Illinois and LaSalle, Illinois

~~~~~~~~

Our Q&A with the Bride:

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1.  The ice cream cart that was located outside of the church with homemade popsicles for our guests to enjoy as we made our exit out of the church.
  2. Loved the wedding timelines we had.  They let everyone know what was coming and kept the show rolling.  From the photo booth, to the late night snack, to the sparkler send off, we wanted to keep people entertained and engaged throughout the reception.
  3. We had a ball with all of the props that we brought for the photo booth and for people to wear on the dance floor.  MUSTACHES were a huge hit and I think at one point everyone was wearing one.  Also had wigs, glasses, glow sticks, and hats.  Everyone had a ball dressing up!

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

Make it unique and memorable.  Utilize websites like Pinterest and Etsy to get your ideas.  You don’t have to spend a lot of money to wow people, and you can do things yourself without giving off that cheesy DIY look.

Indian Wells, California

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

The amazing vistas at the venue were incredible.  One could see the golf course, a lake, and several layers of mountains in one panoramic view.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. We were grateful to have all of our closest family and friends present to celebrate with us.

2. The photo booth we had outside the event tent was very special.  All of our guests had a great time taking various pictures and the album we got out of it really contains some memorable photos.

3. The after-party in the clubhouse was the perfect way to wind down the evening.  All the guests stayed and gave us the time to really spend time with everyone in a more relaxed and informal setting.

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

Walking into the event tent after being introduced as a married couple for the first time and seeing all of the people closest to us cheering us on….all while the sun was setting behind the mountains.

Real Florida Wedding: Ginny + Marc

Posted by Jeffra on Jun 04, 2010

Ginny & Marc

May 2010

Location: TPC Sawgrass ~ Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida

From the Bride:

“We met in the 9th grade in Junior High School in Downingtown, Pennsylvania. Although we were friends, we never dated. Coincidentally, we both moved to Florida for college. I went to The Florida State University and Marc attended the University of South Florida. We spent the last 3 years of our college careers driving 3 1/2 hours to spend short weekends together.

The wedding was the most challenging event I have ever organized. I am a kindergarten teacher and, at the time, was finishing my Master’s degree. I felt as though I had three full-time jobs and at one point…or maybe many. I attempted to get the majority of the work done as soon as I could, seeing as how I graduated a month after our wedding. Sweat and tears aside, the day turned out to be absolutely amazing. Marc and I had a blast at the wedding and it was neat to see all of our hard work pay off and watch as it all came together. We were so happy to spend our special day with so many of our loved ones and are excited to begin the rest of our lives as ‘Mr. and Mrs.’” -Ginny
