Posted by Caitlin on Sep 23, 2013

Cheryl & Dave

August 23  

Milton, Ontario, Canada 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

Our venue had an intimate feel for celebrating with our family and friends.  We loved the rustic yet elegant décor, and that they use their on-site garden and local foods to create the most delicious meals!

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

1. We each wrote our own vows, then followed them with joint vows that we created together.  This made our ceremony feel so personal and special to us.  

2. We cut up a fallen tree trunk near our home and used the cross sections of wood as the base for our centerpieces and décor.  

3. I had custom cufflinks made for my groom with pictures of our beloved dog Gus, so that he could be with us on our wedding day!

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

Our crazy and amazing family planned a surprise flash mob before the best man’s speech!

Lindsay & TJ

June 8

Old Lyme, Connecticut

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

Its location.  We wanted our wedding to have a traditional New England summertime feel to it.  We chose a picturesque church for our ceremony and a beautiful beach area in which to do our portraits, and the country club is in close proximity to both.  Our venue is also representative of us as a couple – we love to play sports and spend time outside, and the country club is set on a golf course and has an indoor and outdoor component.

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

1. Flowers — simply gorgeous.

2. Cupcakes — adorable and tasty.

3. Stationary — the Green Kangaroo’s invitations, programs, place cards, and table numbers were flawless.

4. Bridesmaids and Groomsmen Attire — our sisters and brothers comprised our bridal party, and they looked perfect. Each bridesmaid wore something reflective of her style yet in keeping with our theme and color. 

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

Invest in an amazing photographer.  Although you are always told that a wedding goes by quickly, you don’t fully understand how true that statement is until you experience your own wedding. By investing in an amazing photographer, as we did with Candace Jeffery, you are instilled with confidence that your beautiful memories will be captured in photos, and you are given something tangible to forever cherish.

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

Our sunset photos, which took place on the golf course about halfway through out reception.  This was the first moment that my husband and I got to be alone with one another, yet we could still hear the excitement of our family and friends in the background.  It was also a moment in which we got to reflect on the beauty of our day, which as cliché as it sounds, truly was the best day of our lives.

Rustic Spring Plantation Wedding in Georgia

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 17, 2013

Crystal & Trey

May 18

Covington, Georgia

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

We were definitely a couple with a small budget, so the price was great. The theme and location of the venue is exactly what we wanted. We wanted a local outdoor wedding that our family and friends would be able to easily attend. It was also special to us because it’s a county-owned site, so we remembered taking field trips there as kids in school. Overall, it was just a great place for us, and it could not have been more beautiful!  

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

1. As our unity symbol, we made a braid. One of our favorite things to do together is rock climb. To tie that in, we used our rock climbing rope that we both learned how to tie a belay knot with.

2. One of our very special details was our foot washing ceremony during our ceremony. It was a symbol of our faith, and it showed how in our marriage we are committing to serve one another in a loving and caring way. 

3. Another favorite detail we had was our remembrance of our grandparents, who have passed on. We had 8×10 photos in frames of them sitting on the front rows during the ceremony. They were very special people in our lives so we wanted to make sure they were remembered in an important way at our wedding.

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

Our most special moment was our first kiss. It had been raining early that morning, so we were very nervous. It was partially cloudy all day as we kept our fingers crossed to at least hold off on the rain until the reception. Luckily, it worked! The rain held off and here is the special part: as we finished our first kiss, the clouds parted, and the sun was shining right on our faces. It was the cutest, most wonderful and perfect moment we could have asked for. Our guests could not stop talking about it!

Leslie & Matt

April 27

Cleveland, Ohio

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Couple:

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

It is truly a hidden gem in downtown Cleveland.  Not many people know about it and when you walk in, you are truly enamored by the grandeur and history of it.  It was beautifully charming and expressed both of our personalities.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. I wore the same train that my mom wore on her wedding day and my sister wore it on her wedding day as well.
  2. Matt and I met sailing and my Dad actually introduced us.  My Dad passed away about a year before our wedding and Matt took one of the sails from my Dad’s boat to make the ring bearer’s pillow.  He even sewed it himself.
  3. We bought two sailboats (actually, Christmas ornaments) for our wedding cake to represent the way we met.  We painted them in our wedding colors and now we can hang them on our Christmas tree every year.

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

Matt:  The first look. The first time I saw Leslie in her wedding dress, I was absolutely blown away by how beautiful she looked. 

Leslie:  Walking outside of my mom’s house and seeing Matt waiting for me for our first look.  He looked so excited and so emotional. I couldn’t wait to see him, kiss him, and marry him! It was the perfect day and I don’t think I ever stopped smiling.

Preppy Pink and Blue Beach Wedding in South Carolina

Sara & Nick

September 28

Isle of Palms, South Carolina

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

I searched and searched for a wedding venue. My family and I drove past the Citadel Beach House and we said, “Let’s just go look.” The house was locked so we walked around back. As soon as I turned the corner around the beach house, I saw the green lawn, the tall beach grass and the bright blue ocean. I turned around to my family and said, “This is it, no question.”

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

1. Gorgeous flowers

2. Delicious food

3. Super fun photo booth

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

Walking out of the Citadel Beach House doors and seeing all of our friends and family supporting us and passing them down the aisle and making eye contact with my very soon-to-be husband. Seeing him for the first time on our wedding day surrounded with all of the people we love.
