From the Bride…

‘I loved absolutely EVERY part of my wedding day!! If my life were the movie Groundhog Day I would want to relive my wedding day over and over.  Hilda and Carol did a phenomenal job of capturing every one of my favorite moments from the day and I am forever grateful!!  Everyone who has seen the photos is amazed at their stunning beauty!  I could not have asked for anything better!!
 
An ethereal cottage riverside hotel.  The perfect location for my wedding dreams to come true!!  The courtyard is a breathtaking venue for a wedding.  The staff was absolutely perfect!  They have delicious food that is personally delivered with white glove service- a nice touch!!  We worked mostly with Deanne who really made the day flawless.  She worked extremely hard to make sure everything was coordinated, and I did not have to worry about a thing on the day of the wedding!!  I loved every part of getting married here, including the warm milk and cookies they give you every night 🙂

Hair/Makeup: Syndey Fink @ Luxe Hair Salon
One word:  Idyllic.  I went to high school with Sydney and have always been in awe of her amazing sense of style.  I was so honored when she said she would do the hair and makeup for my wedding.  It brings tears to my eyes when I think about what a wonderful job she did!!!  We had about 18 girls who needed hair and makeup the day of the wedding.  Syd made an extensive schedule for each girl and makeup artist/hair stylist.  They all arrived to the salon extra early to make sure we finished with plenty of time.  She pays close attention to every detail, and every bridesmaid took my breath away with their hair & makeup.  I only wish I could keep her in my pocket and have her do my hair and makeup every day!!
 
Elizabeth does flower art!!  When you first meet her you just know she will take your wildest dreams and make them come true!  My mom prides herself on her own green thumb and had very high standards for the flower arrangements.  Elizabeth exceeded even her expectations!  The flowers were meticulously designed, and the fragrance from my bouquet was breathtaking!!  No request was too large for Elizabeth: when I told Elizabeth that I wanted to surprise my husband with a confetti toss when he was allowed to finally “Kiss his Bride,” she figured out how to make it happen, and it was one of my favorite parts of the wedding!!

Jaysin is a gift from heaven!!  From the moment I met him, I immediately felt comfortable in front of his camera.  He has an amazing way of making you feel calm, even on your wedding day!!  He is full of wonderful video ideas and worked beautifully with Hilda!  It truly is the dream team!  I loved all of the video footage!!  He really joined the family and by the end of the day everyone kept getting confused if Jaysin was part of the wedding party or the videographer.  LOVE him!!
 
Band:  Red Woody
This band ROCKED!!!  They had the dance floor hopping the entire night!!  They encouraged audience participation and had the guests playing the tambourine and wooden guitar.  They even accompanied my brother as he rapped a Vanilla Ice song.  I loved them SO much that I never left the dance floor once they started!!!
 
Bridesmaid dresses:  The Crystal Bride
I fell in love with this dress the second I tried it on!!  Light pink is a family wedding bridesmaid dress tradition and I thought this color was absolutely gorgeous!!!  It looked good on every single bridesmaid!!

Wedding Dress: Vera Wang
LOVE!!!!  I became obsessed with this dress when I did the biggest wedding faux paus and tried on any wedding dress regardless of the cost!!  whoopsy!!  All it took was slipping this dress on once, my best friends tears when she saw it (she doesn’t cry very often), and I was sold!!  I tried on many (MANY) other dresses before I dragged my mom to the Vera Wang store.  When I saw her face with this dress on, it was all over!!  Ogling over pictures of this dress has gotten me through many stressful work days!  It was well worth it!!
