Intimate Summer Beach Wedding in Virginia

Posted by Caitlin on Feb 08, 2013

Eileen & Sammy

June 9

Virginia Beach, Virginia

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

I grew up a mile from that venue, and it had my favorite view in all of Virginia Beach.

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

1. The Ceremony – our parents participated in the ceremony, and each one gave us their own blessing in turn. 
2. The Chinese Lion Dancers – it’s traditionally for a New Year’s celebration, but it just was a fun nod to my heritage. And what better way to start a new life!
3. Sammy’s Song – Sammy sang a song to me during our first dance. He picked my favorite ballad from the late, great Michael Jackson: “Ben.” But he changed the words so it was Eileen instead of Ben. It was so sweet and sentimental.

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

Celebrate! Over a hundred people are there to celebrate with you; you can do no less than oblige them by having fun on your big day.

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

It would have to be Sammy’s song. He’s not a good singer, but he belted out MJ’s song like a pro.

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 property where I grew up. I knew that I wanted a rustic, beautiful setting outside that was personal, so our ceremony took place in my mother’s rose garden in the backyard. 

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

1. I loved the colors of my wedding: cobalt blue, turquoise and navy blue

2. The Magnums of Blue Farm Pinot Noir, Carneros

3. My table numbers

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

While walking down the aisle, listening to my stepfather play the song “Blackbird” on his classical guitar,  I can’t forget seeing my husband for the first time that day.

Intimate, Garden Wedding in Maryland

Posted by Caitlin on Oct 23, 2012

Melanie & Travis 

August 11

Stevenson, Maryland 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride: 

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

1. Our vows: We wrote our own vows because we wanted them to reflect our relationship. I’ll never forget the moment when everyone laughed when I said, “I promise to listen when you speak.” to Travis. I guess everyone knows how stubborn I can be at times, especially when I believe I’m right!

2. Photographer: Our brother-in-law, Jordan Marsh, photographed our wedding. He took amazing pictures, but the best part was we were so comfortable with him. We had a blast sneaking off with Jordan and my sister to take photos. It felt like we were having a mini family reunion in the middle of our wedding day.

3. Hearts: Travis’ 93-year-old grandmother made personalized hearts for each of our wedding guests. She spent months working on this project, and it was great to see how happy she was when she saw her hearts on the reception tables.

4. Speeches: We were so happy to see our childhood best friends give speeches recounting inside jokes and great memories. We also loved my younger brother’s last minute speech despite the fact he made me cry.

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

Have a small, intimate wedding and invite the people you want to invite. We had 75 guests at our wedding, and we felt like it was the perfect size. We had enough time to talk to everyone at the wedding without feeling rushed.

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

I cannot stop thinking about our ceremony, and the moment I saw Travis for the first time as I was walking down the aisle. He had tears in his eyes, and he looked so calm and proud. We
couldn’t stop holding each other’s hands during the ceremony, and I knew without a doubt that I was making the best decision of my life.

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.
