From the Bride...
I will never forget walking down the aisle, it is the best memory from my wedding day. It was such a poignant moment, filled with so much emotion and excitement! Another memorable moment occurred at the very end of the night as we all danced and sang to the last song of the night, "Sweet Caroline," all of our guests assembled in one large group hug around us. It was so spontaneous and the love in the room was palpable!
There were so many special details that we incorporated to make it unique to our personality. We kicked off our wedding weekend with our rehearsal dinner, held in a 100 year old barn in Saint Helena emulating one of our favorite events during the courtship: a lobster feed! Our cake topper was hand painted by a friend that included our dog, Riley. Our wedding dinner was a romantic candlelight dinner in a wine cave that began with a slideshow made by family. Rather than table numbers we used photos from our favorite places that we've traveled together. Since Martin loves chocolate, and because we aren't huge cake fans our dessert table was replaced with port and chocolates. My Grandma made our sweet ring bearer pillow. Now, we are excited to begin making our own family traditions as newlyweds.
From the couple... Our Favorite part of planning the wedding:
planning the honeymoon & choosing the venue.
Pinterest!! Wedding planning is a great excuse to spend a copious amount of time on pinterest. I loved finding creative ways to incorporate details that personalized our wedding.
