Interview with the bride…

Why did you choose your ceremony venue?
St. Mike’s is my home parish and there is a stained glass window that was built in memory of my brother. Even though he couldn’t be at the wedding it meant a lot to me and Chris that he could still be shining down on our marriage.

Why did you choose your reception venue?

The Avalon Country Club is a beautiful club with great food, service, and atmosphere! Also, we’ve heard positive things from other people who have had their reception there.

Did you face any obstacles while planning your wedding? If so, please explain.

Overall planning went smoothly, but it did get crazy at times because we planned the wedding in 9 months – having a few more months to plan may have been helpful!

Did everything go as planned on your wedding day?

Maybe not exactly as planned, but overall everything went smoothly and our guests had a great time! By the wedding day, I was over planning and ready to go with the flow and let whatever happened happen. That mentality allowed me to relax and just really enjoy the day!

Looking back on your wedding day, is there anything you would have done differently? Big or small.

The day flew by and I wish Chris and I would have taken a minute to step back and just soak it all in.

Your favorite wedding day moment…

The whole day! I can’t pick just one moment – it was just an amazing day overall!

Any advice or tips to give to a Bride-To-Be?

When making decisions, go with your gut and avoid indecision. If you find yourself agonizing over silly details, step back and put things in perspective. People won’t notice if you use Canaletto white envelopes versus Carnival white.
