Happy November! We would like to kick off the month with the start of our Real Wedding Blog posts. Over the next few months we will be sharing the weddings we have been so lucky to be a part of and hope that there will be some helpful advise from the couples to all those out there planning their own weddings. We hope you enjoy it!
Today we would like to introduce you to Kelly and Andrew, married on September 15th in Atlanta Georgia. Their day was filled with surprises, dancing and most of all love!
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!
Ceremony: Cathedral of Christ the King
Reception: The Peachtree Club (both Atlanta, GA)
