Welcome to Vermont and meet our bride Lauren and her groom Matthew! We absolutely loved working with Lauren in creating her stationery for her special day. Read on for some advice from an event planner turned bride and we’ll let the photos speak for themselves.
What was your highlight of the day?
The entire day was the best ever. A million highlights strung together. But if we have to pick... We chose to not see each other until the ceremony, so laying our eyes on one another for the first time was a moment we will never forget. Another highlight was our first dance. We had a family member sing our song (Songbird, by Fleetwood Mac), and the whole room was mesmerized by her voice. It was pretty surreal. And one last one - one of my personal favorites - was when Matty gave a speech at our reception. My new husband had me doubled over laughing one minute, followed by tears streaming down my face the next.
Do you have any advice to couples that are planning their upcoming wedding?
If you can, host a welcome party for all of your guests the night prior. This gave us an opportunity to truly talk with everyone for hours, so when it came time to party the next night, we could let loose and just have fun.
Have fun leading up to the wedding with your bride or groom to be. Those memories you share leading up to the big day will make it all the more special.
Most of all….Relax and have fun. Remember what it is all about - you, the love of your life, your family, your friends. And an epic dance party. The second you lose sight of that, the second you start wasting time thinking about things that don't matter. You will not remember what the flowers at Table 7 looked liked, but you will remember what your mom's face looked like when she put you in that gown.
