Anne & Andy

Indianapolis, Indiana

Q & A with the Bride:

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

The 360 degree views from the highest point in the city was so breathtaking! We knew it would be a special place for us and our guests.

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

I love how we used mason jars we discovered in my grandmother’s basement for our floral arrangements. Andy’s vest, pocket square and bow tie were made from his mother’s wedding dress. The black and white striped linens on rectangular guest tables was such a fun detail too!

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

Belting out the lyrics to “Don’t Stop Believing” with everyone gathered around us.  As cheesy as it sounds, it’s my husband’s favorite song. I remember telling myself to take a mental snapshot. I felt so loved by all these people, who were there to support us on our first day of our marriage.

Real Brides Share: Why I Chose My Venue

Posted by Kim on Jan 18, 2013

Searching for a wedding venue is all about finding a spot that matches your personality and style. We’ve interviewed hundreds of brides over the years about how they found their wedding sites, and wanted to share a few of them with you to provide some inspiration as you begin your venue hunt.

We chose to have our wedding and reception at my parents’ home because of the beautiful backdrop and landscape that was already present. We wanted an intimate setting with all our close family and friends , so it was absolutely perfect,” -Ashlie, married May 19 in her parents’ backyard in Tennessee. View more photos from this wedding

Q & A with the Bride: 

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

The tall ceilings! St. Marys of the Woods’ O’Shaughnessy Hall is absolutely gorgeous. I always wanted tall ceiling at my wedding venue and this was perfect touch.

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

1. Peonies: I wasn’t sure I was going to be able to get them or not, and a couple days before the wedding, we were able to get them for the arrangements!

2. Favors: My mom and I made all of the jam and covered and tied the tags on. I’m not a super creative person, and I was glad that I was able to do something that everyone loved!

3. Stationary: I loved all of the stationary that Pink Poppy Ink did for the wedding. From the invitations to menus, programs and even the seating sign! 

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

The moment we were announced husband and wife, and we walked down the aisle together. After the ceremony, we got to spend a few minutes together alone. It was so amazing to just be together since the day is so hectic leading up to that point! Plus, my dad doing a kick line to the beach boys at the reception! 

Lovely, Library-Themed Wedding in Indiana

Bethany & Heston

Q & A with the Bride:

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

The books. It sounds a little silly, but it was a perfect combination of Heston and I. He loves all kinds of literature, and I love the history and elegance that the stories and the venue represent. It seemed like a fitting place for the next chapter in our own adventure.

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

1. The cake: I had no idea it would turn out so classic and beautiful. It was even more than I had imagined, and it tied into the décor better than planned.
2. The pieces of Heston and I that were tied into the crossword, programs and table numbers. We made each table themed as one of our favorite books, incorporated a crossword with facts about us, and used a “He says/She says” section in our programs.
3. The love and support of all of our family members and friends.

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

Pick one thing that is the most important to you and focus on it instead of the million other details. For example, the one special thing for me was having Heston there in person. It may sound obvious, but in reality, he only received his visa three hours before his flight to the U.S., arriving in the country a couple of weeks before the wedding. The last minute decisions on the flowers or décor (we made major adjustments the week of) became very easy. That, and take a honeymoon. I went straight back to work after the wedding, but quickly found that you need some time to relax and enjoy each other’s company after the craziness. Don’t be the wife that falls asleep midway through dinner weeks after the wedding.

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

My favorite moment was when we were announced as Mr. and Mrs. Hoffman. All of our family and friends cheered, and it was sheer bliss. At that moment, I felt the weight of Heston’s visa, the long distance relationship and the wedding planning all fall away. I think that even years from now it will be one of those things that I can reflect back on and remember vividly.

Q&A with the Bride:

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

There were so many things we loved about our wedding but three things that stood out the most to me were our Unity Painting, the Mad Lib games I created for the guests, and the guest book tree that my husband drew. (I also loved my dress and his bowtie!)

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

Be sure to choose a color palette that is readily available! We had difficulty finding things in grays and yellows throughout the planning process. This was our biggest “obstacle.”

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

We decided to do a “first look”  and have all our photos taken prior to the ceremony. The time that we got to spend alone, in front of the camera, is the part of the day I cherish most.
