Purple and Orange Vineyard Wedding in New York

Kerrie & Amin

August 25

Sagaponack, New York

Q & A with the Bride and Groom:

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

Do not try and do everything yourself, enlist the help of others. I say this because without the help of my mother and stepfather who literally planned everything (with the exception of my matron of honor, Damaris and one of my maids of honor, Tara, who were also integral in planning and execution) I don’t know how this day would have been possible. From the moment I screamed “Mom! I’m engaged!” she literally started planning the wedding.  If I didn’t know any better I would’ve thought she was waiting for that moment from the day I was born.

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

During the party, one of my favorite songs came on (“I Am Blessed” by Mr. Vegas) and when I heard the entire crowd signing my favorite line in the song which is “I am blessed, I am blessed, Every day of my life I am blessed, When I wake up in the morning, And I lay my head to rest, Every day of my life I am blessed,”  in that moment I literally had to stop and take it all in because no truer words could have been spoken about my wedding day and my life to date.

Modern Purple and Orange Museum Wedding in Florida

Posted by Caitlin on Feb 05, 2013

Karina & V.J.

October 20

St. Petersburg, Florida

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

We love downtown St. Petersburg, and we were looking for an outdoor waterfront venue. When the Dali Museum opened, we knew it was the prefect venue not only because we got engaged in the city, but because of my love of Dali art and my family being from Spain. We have eclectic taste, and the Dali’s unique space gave us beautiful architecture, an outdoor garden with waterfront views and great art!

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

1. The live flamenco band.
2. The candlelit reception in the garden, and the gorgeous centerpieces with beautiful, bright circus roses against the eggplant linens and copper and gold accents. We even had FIREWORKS, perfection!
3. Wedding stationary.

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

V.J. and I exchanged wedding arras, which are Spanish coins during our ceremony. The coins were from my Abulea’s (grandmother) hometown in Valencia, Spain. Each coin symbolizes the commitments we made to each other: love, trust, respect, joy, happiness, harmony, wisdom, wholeness, nurture, care, cooperation and peace. It was so meaningful for us to carry on this tradition for our family and have these coins as an heirloom.

Modern Orange and Green Wedding in Illinois

Posted by Caitlin on Nov 30, 2012

Engy & Jason

July 7

Chicago, Illinois

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

The big, beautiful French doors. It was a perfect, classic touch to the very modern, loft-ish space. We knew the venue was the one, when we imagined centering our wedding ceremony around the windows (rather than using the outdoor space). 

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

1. Hearing my cue to walk down the aisle: It was one of my favorite songs during the time I met Jason (“Such Great Heights” by The Postal Service), and it sort of culminated all of our years together to that moment. 

2. The MOH speech: She sang it to the tune of “Soul Sister” by Train. It was amazing. 

3. Taking pictures by the lake with the city skyline behind us: Our favorite picture was a wave crashing on to the shore as Jason dipped me for a kiss.

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

Our first look. I was deliriously happy to the point of tears.

Colleen & Jeff

April 28

Indianapolis, Indiana

~~~~~~~~

Our Q&A with the Bride:

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

We really wanted a venue that was unique, had character and could fit our 300 person guest list.  Everything at Fountain Square Theatre from the overall vintage vibe, to the balcony for cocktail hour to the marquis to announce our event really made the venue one of a kind and set the tone for our wedding day.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

My three favorite details were the flowers, my dress (can I wear it again somewhere?!) and our beautiful photos that help me relive the wedding day everyday.

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

My favorite moment was when the DJ really got the reception kicked off and we could dance and have fun with our family and friends.  We can honestly say we had a blast at our wedding!
