FROM THE BRIDE: I loved everything about my day, but a memory that I cherish is my husband’s toast to the guests. He thanked all the guests and then proceeded to tell all the guests how truly lucky he felt to marry such a beautiful person. He doesn’t express emotion much in public so it was very unexpected, which made the moment even more special. One of the most important parts of the wedding planning for me was the decor. My mom and I have a passion to decorate, so I had a vision of what I wanted the reception to look like. My mom and Petals to Platinum helped make that happen. It turned out better than I could have imagined! Another important aspect for us was to make every person at the wedding feel special – I love hosting guests! However, when hosting over 600 people it is difficult to make each of them feel like they were special. We had a couple party favors that they could take home, thank yous at each place setting, snacks before the reception, a taco bar during the dance and signature drinks with custom take-home wine glasses. We wanted them to feel like they were at a big party, not just another wedding. Marcus and I feel so blessed to have such wonderful family and friends that traveled near and far to help celebrate our special day. Every moment was more than what we could have imagined and it will forever be one of the best days of our lives.

FROM THE BRIDE: Jason and I wanted our wedding day to not only be about us, but our family and friends who we could not have done it without. It was always in the front of our minds that we wanted a fun day of celebrating! That was our focus while planning the reception – from the candy bar, to the photo booth, to the special place setting for children! Reflecting back on our wedding day, my favorite memory was our first look. After all the anticipation, we just could not wait to see each other and share a special moment. It was amazing!
