Q & A with the Bride:

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

We knew we wanted to get married in a beautiful outdoor location with plenty of trees, lush surroundings and booming with personality. As soon as we saw the gigantic tree with the twinkle lights in the middle of the reception deck, we both fell in love and couldn’t think of any other place to get married. Also, the location was quite intimate and private; it was perfect for our guest size and wedding theme.

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

I loved our grand entrance as I approached the reception area, I breathed in the looks of the dessert table, the centerpieces, the flowers, the twinkle lights hanging from the tree and most importantly, I looked at our beautiful family and friends and felt the overwhelming and contagious excitement and happiness all around. I also loved our first look because it gave us some private time to loosen some nerves before the big ceremony. And even though I didn’t think I could get through my vows (I was so choked up and crying as soon as he started saying his), it was still a very memorable moment of the day seeing him look at me with so much love in his eyes and hear him speak with so much love in his voice.

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

I remember loving the dancing part, especially when the DJ played “Gangnam style” and Bryce, one of the groomsmen, just busted out doing the dance moves in the middle of the dance floor. Everybody got so into it, copying every move he made. People warned me that most people don’t dance at weddings, but it seemed like everyone at that point was on the dance floor. It was so much fun!
