Interview with the Bride…

Why did you choose the Hyatt Coconut Point Resort as your venue?

We chose the Hyatt Resort in Bonita because Michael and I met in Florida.  We met on e-Harmony about a year after he moved to Florida from St. Louis, MO.  We fell in love in FL and so it holds a very special place in our hearts.   We also wanted a destination wedding so we could share the weekend with our families and give them an opportunity to get to know one another.

Did you face any obstacles while planning your wedding?

We had  scheduling conflict with the Officiate.  There was another wedding on the premises that day.  Dan was to officiate both ceremonies.  Our ceremony at 4 and the other bride at 5.  Two days before her wedding, she changed the time of her ceremony from 5 to 4 so that she would get sunset pictures.  She did not tell anyone.  We never really resolved the issue, but I think Dan was a bit frazzled.  Michael and I just went about our business, and we really don’t know what happened after that……LOL.

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

Nothing.  I married the man I love.  He’s everything Big and Small that is right in my life.

Your favorite wedding day moment…

Walking with my father to meet my husband at the alter and listening to Michael say his vows to me.

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

Marry your best friend and Lover.
