Garden wedding that lets love grown

Today’s Real Wedding features the union of Rob & Kristin on June 30th, 2012 in Monterey, CA. It was a beautiful summer day for them to remember for years to come!

Rob and Kristin used the In Bloom Invitation and RSVP for their wedding.


What was your highlight of the day?
The highlight of the day was doing a "First Look," where Rob and I saw each other for the first time before the wedding. It was such an emotional, private time where we had the opportunity to really be there in the moment -- just the two of us -- and take it all in. The reception was also a big highlight because we could finally let out a big sigh of relief and really let loose (and dance our butts off).

Is there anything you would have liked to do differently?
I would have asked for more help initially in the planning process. I took on too much and it ended up stressing me out. Thankfully we decided to hire a day-of wedding coordinator, which was a HUGE stress (and sanity) reliever!

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
Don't get lost in all the small DIY details -- no one really notices them anyway. Do a "First Look" with your photographer so you can have that one moment where it's just the two of you. If your budget allows, hire a day-of wedding coordinator. The most important piece of advice is not to loose sight of what the day really is all about -- two people deeply in love, surrounded by a wealth of love -- joining together as one love. All the rest is just icing on the cake.

Childhood friends become husband and wife

Welcome to your next edition of Real Weddings! We are pleased to introduce to you, Nathan and Jennifer. After being friends since 5 years of age, they were finally able to call each other husband and wife on October 5th, 2012 in Burton, OH.

What was your highlight of the day?
There were so many highlights from the day that it is hard to choose just one. I would have to say though the fact of knowing that at the end of the day I was going home with Nathan and there was nothing to worry about was the most relieving feeling. We left the reception, looked at each other and both agreed that that was the best wedding we had ever been to because we are so blessed with incredible family and friends who genuinely care about us. The energy on the dance floor was such pure celebratory dancing and joy. I have never experienced anything like it!

Is there anything you would have liked to do differently?
There is not much of anything that we would have done differently. Our engagement was 6 months long, almost to the day, and during that time we delegated tasks to friends and family who offered to help. I think closer to the wedding day I would have asked for more help and shared my vision with more people so that when I was not present at a certain point others would know exactly what needed to be done. Nathan and I knew exactly what we wanted and found the most thrifty and creative ways to achieve that. We had a great circuit of friends with different connections and creative ideas and pulling from all of those sources made the planning and execution much easier. We had people we trusted completely to carry out our ideas and it was having those wonderful people that made it easier to pull ourselves away from the decorating or organizing. Giving trust over to others was the best thing I could have done.

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
My advice to those getting married is twofold. First of all, like I mentioned earlier, take people up on their offers to help. Don't just say thanks for the offer and ignore it, doing everything yourself. People offer to help because they want to, and when you truly give over your anxiety about every little detail being perfect you will relieve yourself of so much stress. It will be a beautiful wedding because of the act of love taking place between the two of you, not because of the trendy place settings or the wedding favors. Share your ideas with those closest to you, whether its your parents or bridal party or wedding planner. Sharing your vision with others will ensure that even when you are not present others will carry out the plans the way you want them. Second of all, don't worry about the little things. I know many brides and grooms are very detail oriented and that can be a good thing, but when you are stressing yourself out the week before the wedding about the flavor of frosting on the cake, or having the perfect music playlist for the reception you just have to let it go. Trust that your guests are there for you, not there expecting the best party of their life.

Kelly and Andrew used the Back to Nature Invitation and RSVP for their wedding.

What was your highlight of the day?
Andrew had several surprises staged throughout the day. First was a blindfolded kiss before we walked down the aisle. It was Andrew's sneaky plan to steal a kiss before we said our I do's without us actually seeing each other. Second, was a gorgeous set of emerald earrings and diamond necklace, given to me as I was getting ready. Third was our band called me up onto the stage to open a present (again... clueless). Inside the box were personalized his and her tambourines to play with the whole night long, we had which was a blast!

Another favorite for both of us was a private dinner with just the two of us during cocktail hour at the reception. It gave us time to absorb and talk about how special this day was and how overwhelmed we felt that our favorite people in the world were all in one place together :) We could not stop smiling the entire evening!

Is there anything you would have liked to do differently?
Not one thing!

Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?

  • Plan ahead so you can enjoy and relax as soon as possible (my goal was to be done with all of my big projects by Wednesday the week of the wedding)
  • Having a day of coordinator is extremely helpful. Watermark Wedding in Atlanta truly made me feel like a guest at my own wedding. I enjoyed every single second and did not worry about ONE thing at our ceremony and reception. If something went wrong, I had no idea!
  • Share the work, communicate, help each other as much as possible, and remember to focus on the marriage not just the wedding!
