~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

1. Shoes

2. Brooch

3. Flowers

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

Reading my vows. Dan and I decided to write our own vows, and although, I was very reluctant at first because I was nervous, I am so glad that we did. I’ll remember that moment forever.

Our maid of honors’ and best man’s speeches. One of my sisters did a rap, and it was absolutely hilarious. My other sister’s speech was so heartfelt that she started crying. The best man’s speech was perfect – thoughtful and loving, yet funny too.  I felt every possible emotion at one time; we were on cloud nine!

Rustic Gray and Yellow Summer Farm Wedding in Michigan

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 25, 2013

Katie & Andy

June 22

Hanover, Michigan

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

We had our reception at the Hoop Barn located on my family’s dairy farm. When it was built years ago, I told my family if I get married the reception will be at that barn. It’s a beautiful setting in a wheat field. I mentioned it to Andy after the engagement and since he is a farmer he was all for the idea!

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

1. The draping at the barn. It set the tone for the venue. It gave the barn a dramatic feel and was breathtaking as the guests walked in.

2. The cake display, so cute! The wedding cake was on a wine barrel, and the cupcake stands were on surrounding crates with an adorable backdrop in the colors we used for our wedding.

3. Taking pictures at the original family farm homestead by the old barns and wheat field between the ceremony and reception. The property has been in the family for more than 100 years and to have wedding pictures taken there was meaningful.

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

It may sound cliche, but the wedding ceremony at St. Mary’s Star of the Sea Catholic Church. The church is absolutely beautiful! Seeing the pews filled with family and friends to witness the exchanging of vows still gives me chills.

Rainy Day Nautical-Themed Wedding in Maryland

Posted by Caitlin on Jul 23, 2013

Melissa & Joe 

August 25

St. Michaels, Maryland 

~~~~~~~~

Q & A with the Bride:

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

Joe and I both grew up in Maryland and had happy memories of the Eastern Shore from our childhood. St. Michaels was a great place that our whole family could get away for the weekend and really celebrate. The Chesapeake Bay Maritime Museum provided a beautiful and unique location to host a wedding.

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

1. The hanging lanterns. They made the tent and dance floor feel magical.

2. My veil. It was originally my grandmother’s and then my mother’s.

3. The umbrellas. I hated the rain, but they made for some great pictures.

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

My advice would be know that you can’t control everything.  There will be something that won’t go as planned.  Your wedding only happens once, make the best of it and have fun! Up to the day before my wedding there was a 0% chance of rain, we ended up with over 7 inches.  For an outdoor wedding, it could have ruined our day but looking back I wouldn’t change a thing. It just made it that much more memorable.

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

Our first dance was one of the happiest moments of my life. Another great and funny memory was walking from the cocktail hour to the tent with my husband and his groomsmen trying to keep me dry in the rain. It was raining so hard that it just had to become funny.
