FROM THE BRIDE: Our wedding day was a fairy tale! It was the wedding that I had always dreamed of and so much more. There were intricate surprises at every turn for our guests and even for Alec and I. All of my expectations were exceeded thanks to Lovestruck Events, the guests, and most importantly, Alec and I’s family. My favorite memory was walking down the aisle – Alec and I chose not to see each other before the ceremony so this was a really special part for the both of us. As my Dad walked me down the aisle, I remember telling myself to slow down, and enjoy this moment because the rest of the day was going to fly by. The most important part of our wedding planning was the food. We went on the cutting-edge of food design and did food stations! We wanted our guests to experience a fun, laid back cocktail atmosphere where they could walk around and mingle while eating bite-sized “farm to fork” entrees. Brides when planning your wedding – ENJOY THIS TIME! There are so many little things that you are going to be stressed about, but always remember the reasoning behind it all: your marriage. After all of the headaches, the emails, the guest list drama and the to-do lists – remember that in the end, you get to spend the rest of your life with your best friend. This is a once in a lifetime experience, don’t let it drag you down!
