Amber & Stephen

October 5

Malibu, California

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

Our venue had all of the elements of a carnival – a Ferris wheel, a merry go-round and the inside of the reception area looked like a giant circus tent. We also loved the idea of having elements of indoor and outdoors. The venue was nestled away in the mountains and had a very romantic feel.

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. Candy Bar
  2. Table Arrangements
  3. Activities (Caricature Artist, Photo Booth, Palm Reader)

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

Stephen and I did a first look before the ceremony. We were both so nervous. I can’t stop thinking about walking up to him and seeing him for the first time in his suit and seeing the way he lit up when he saw me in my dress. It was magical.

Q & A with the Bride:

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

We loved the classic/historic feel of the Chapel. We knew our pictures would look timeless.

What three (3) details from your wedding were your favorites?

1. Photographs

2. Wedding attire for the entire wedding party

3. Floral arrangements (specifically the pew balls in the Chapel)

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

Our photographer suggested a “first look” moment. We really cherished our time together before the ceremony. It made the wedding day feel more intimate.

Katie & Nick 

August 4

Long Beach, California 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

I knew my venue was the one because it was the perfect combination of everything we were looking for. The Long Beach Museum of Art was the only venue we looked at, and we instantly fell in love with it. We wanted a unique outdoor location, and the museum offered a beautiful ocean view, cool modern sculptures and a hint of a vintage feel from the brick buildings.

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

1. The gorgeous flowers! I loved the texture, colors and the lemons that were incorporated into our centerpieces. They just felt so fun and whimsical.

2. We had a hand-painted wedding cake that featured words that were meaningful to our relationship. The cake was beautiful, but it was even more special to us because of the personal touches we got to put on it.

3. I liked the paper goods and DIY decorations because I was able to be creative with them, plus my family helped me out a lot in creating everything. It was great to work as a team with them.

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

I think walking down the aisle was the most memorable moment of my wedding day. It was so surreal to step out and see all of our family and friends there as well as the decor and details that I had been obsessing over for months. I was happy to be able to walk down the aisle with my dad, and it was emotional to see my husband crying when he saw me.

Whimsical, Warmhearted Wedding in Seattle

Posted by Caitlin on Sep 17, 2012

Chris & Glen

May 26

Seattle, Washington

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Groom:

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

Let your wedding planner do the planning! We found the more we gave Daniella and her team creative freedom, along with what we wanted as far as venue and theme, she was able to create something beyond our expectations. Belle Signature Design made it easy and fun.

2. Give us one moment in your wedding that you can’t stop thinking about.

We LOVED our pictures–Chris and I loved our photographer, Clane Gessel.  He worked closely with us not only with WHERE are pictures were taken but HOW they were taken. This created that personal touch to all of our photos. Both our personalities came through in every photo, which is what we wanted. The last thing we wanted were those “tacky” or “staged” wedding photos that you see all too often. If you want photos that are amazing and capture who you are as a couple, then Clane is the perfect photographer.

Britney & Ben

Lafayette, Indiana

~~~~~~~~

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.
