The bride on their special day:
I planned every aspect of our wedding from the string quartet to the warm cookie service for the guests still partying late into the evening. I'm not a matchy-matchy person and we were only having one person each for our bridal party. I decided that my maid of honor could choose whatever color gown most complimented her complexion in addition to completely flattering her shape. That color determined what tie the best man wore. My husband and I would complement each other. The other elements played off of the colors of the venue and all worked really well. I wanted tons of personal touches that while they may not be the same color, they came together amazingly like pages out of the same book.
The one detail that received the most appreciation and may have prompted folks tell us that night or text us the next day that our wedding was the best one they'd ever been to, or that it was the most sincere and genuine event they'd been to was our "place cards". At each guests place setting they found an envelope with their name on it. Enclosed was a handwritten note from either my husband or me. They basically shared a memory we had with that guest or told them how much they've meant to us or how they influenced our lives etc. This added surprise element seemed to increase the feeling of love and intimacy and a wonderful warm and fuzzy feeling filled the space all night! The vibe was magical!
Most Memorable Part of the Day
How perfect and flawless the day played out. With the threat of and then actual down pour of rain just before first look pictures. The sky cleared up at the exact moment we needed it to! It felt like. We took amazing pictures and returned to the venue to find the ceremony was set up to be out in the garden (as planned) and that every element I worked so hard was meticulously executed by the staff, came to life and was truly appreciated by our guests. I never felt rushed or lost sight of the moment. My focus was completely on my husband and his on me. It was a magical evening. We ate and enjoyed every course of the meal, laughed, danced, cried (a lot!) and fell more in love. I was constantly warned that it goes so fast, you don't get to eat, to pay attention to your spouse & dont worry about your guests.... None of that was a problem for us. We had a ball!
