What was your favorite moment from your wedding day? Why?
When Devin turned around for our first look. I didn’t expect him to be as surprised as he was and it was great. It made me so happy. Then later when he and I had some time to chat, he said that he knew I’d look great but he just had no idea that I’d be that beautiful.
What would you have done differently during the planning process?
Doing more of the planning prior to the last 30 days. For example picking first dance songs etc. There are so many decisions and moving parts in those last 30 days, taking care of anything you can prior to that will make it much less stressful!
What was the biggest surprise on your wedding day? Tell me about it.
Walking into the wedding venue and seeing all of the decor. I had an ideal of what it would look like in my head, and I even saw it part way done, because I had to go into the event center on Friday night and pluck a few things that were mixed in with wedding decor that shouldn’t have been. It was exactly what I wanted it to be. Gwen and Kate did such an amazing job bringing my vision to reality.
Tell me about your dress, where did you find it, how did you choose it, what was your favorite part of your dress?
I found it at Posh in Wayzata. I didn’t have any luck with what the sales person was pulling for me. She sent me on the floor and I pulled the dress I ended up with, off the rack. I didn’t know about it at first, it was also a blush color on the floor. I put it on for a second time and I had to hold back the tears, so I knew it was it. My mom wasn’t sure though, she thought maybe I was just ready to be done shopping. I typically go from shop to drop but I loved it. My favorite part about the dress were the buttons on the illusion back, leading all the way down to the end of the train.
What wedding planning related advice would you offer to couples planning their wedding?
Do what makes you and you’re spouse happy, and what makes sense for your personalities and relationship. So many people will have opinions and a lot of them will be great, just do you.
