- Wedding: August 2013
Our wedding was Aug. 10 and it was beautiful. The only mishap was the ceremony music. There was a miscommunication (despite very clear verbal and written instructions to the DJ and the venue) and they told the bridal party to “wait” during the processional, and wouldn’t let them go until the next song, which was my processional. I didn’t end up getting the traditional music stop and then build up like I had hoped, but I guess that’s what happens when you choose nontraditional processionals. :-/ I just went right after.
Everything else was perfect. Our vendors were amazing. And honestly, the music mishap kept DH and I from getting too emotional during the vows, so kind of a bonus. Plus we did it right at the rehearsal and he teared up then, so that was sweet.
I didn’t have dress regret, but I was definitely nervous about how it would come together. I’m really happy with the final result and love looking at my dress every day when I open my closet. 🙂
If you’re in Michigan, I HIGHLY recommend Chris McGuire for photography out of Kalamazoo. And despite the music, our venue, Loft 310 in Kalamazoo, was INCREDIBLE. All in all, a great day and easy planning.
