Q: How did you meet? Tell us about the proposal.

A: We met online.   We initially began talking as friends due to him living in FL and me and TN.  That quickly changed when we realized we truly enjoyed getting to know each other.  We spent the next few months dating long distance while traveling back and forth.  On one of his trips down while eating dinner, we began discussing how we were  going to go about getting married.  Our plans were getting really specific so I stated, “There is no need to make all these plans, you haven’t even proposed”.  He responds with, “I could have your ring right now”  I laugh and dismissed him with “You wouldn’t have been able to keep that a secret”    We move onto another topic but a short time later he gets up from eating and goes upstairs.  I am thinking to the bathroom but I jokingly say “are you going to get my ring”.  I hear him come back but I continue to eat.  When he doesn’t sit back down I turn to see what he is doing, and he is down on one knee with the ring.   I was not expecting that!!  The rest is history.

Q: Tell us about your wedding! What was the inspiration behind your day? Did you have a specific theme, style or color palette? Did you incorporate any cultural or religious traditions in any part of your day?

A: I wanted a small intimate wedding. I didn’t want anything super formal but instead wanted it to feel like a family gathering.

Q: Let’s talk fashion. How did you both choose your wedding day look? Describe the looks in detail.

A: Oh my dress!! How I love it.  I knew it was going to be an outdoor wedding.  So I wanted a dress that was casually glamorous.  I think my dress succeeded in that.  The lace floral details of the dress went perfectly with the outdoor ceremony.   At my dress fitting, the seamstress suggested a hair pin that would look great due to me choosing not to wear a veil.My husband is more casual and just wanted a nice black suit.  We found a charcoal one that worked out great.  We found a tie that incorporated 2 of our weddings colors which made his outfit complete.

Q: What was the most anticipated or special moment of your wedding day?

A: The weather ended up being an extremely special moment for our wedding.  It had rained pretty much all week and it was a high chance of rain on the wedding day, which was outdoors.  We rehearsed the day of the wedding and it rained during rehearsal (which was surprisingly romantic).   But the rain dried up in time for the ceremony and it made for a perfect evening wedding.  The rain waited until after the reception to come back.  The moment I anticipated most was the first kiss and walk down the aisle.  I have seen that moment plenty of times but to be in that moment was almost surreal.  I was officially married!!

Q: What were the florals like in your wedding? Did you use flowers in any of your design elements like the bridal bouquets, centerpieces or ceremony backdrop? Did they play an important part in the overall style of your wedding?

A: My matron of honor designed and put together all of the bouquets.   All I had in mind was colors and she took it and made it come to life.

Q: Did you personalize the day in any way (food trucks, guest entertainment etc.)? What were some of your favorite parts of your wedding?

A: The ceremony was my favorite part of the wedding.  I have always heard that the wedding goes so fast, so we took a moment during the ceremony to stop, turn, and take it all in.   I also loved the fact that we had a congregational vow section in which our family and friends were asked to commit to supporting us and reminding us of the vows we took before God.
