I picked my bridesmaids, and they picked their dresses.

I wanted every body type to be happy with their choice and more importantly feel comfortable.

When I found a color that came in various dresses, the girls did their thing and they looked amazing.


My bouquet was one of my favorite pieces! White Calla Lillies dominated the piece and it was truly beautiful.

I did not have a sit down dinner at my wedding. We did a buffet-style, “eat what you want and where you want” type of dinner.

This eliminated the headache of place cards (which is never easy for any bride) and it allowed for freedom as far as mingling, moving around the venue, and eating when you wanted.


We chose a DJ over a band for a few reasons. One was certainly the cost savings.


I also love to dance and there were so many great dancing songs out at the time that i couldn’t pass up not having at my wedding. The DJ played music the entire time and took requests



Having a photo booth for our wedding was one of the best ideas because guests left with their very own memories. The pictures were used for signing our ‘guest book’ and because at the end of the day, we had a copy of every picture taken, we realized how creative our friends and family were and how much fun they were having. The photobooth told a fantastic wordless story of the night.
