Tag: summer wedding

A proposal at the White House practically demands a patriotic red, white, and blue wedding, and thanks to their Southern summer picnic inspiration, Amy and Kenny’s big day was the epitome of all-American joy and fun! Along with tables nicknamed after favorite Washington DC landmarks, a darling sweetheart table, and the prettiest Rice Krispie treat cake (yes, cake!) I’ve ever seen, Amy and Kenny’s wedding was full of family and friends having a great time and lovin’ on each other. That’s definitely what makes summer so sweet to me!

Hugs to Jillian Zamora for sharing this happy day with us!

Tell us all about the proposal! Kenny is quite the romantic and he couldn’t have chosen a more perfect way to propose! Kenny is from northern Virginia and has a special place in his heart for DC, so when he took me back home to meet his family over Thanksgiving, we planned a mini trip for just the two of us in DC. He knew I wanted a memorable proposal, so he chose the White House as the location. As we walked through the White House, Kenny analyzed my every move and comment in each room, trying to decide which was my favorite (all the while, the ring was burning a hole in his pocket!). After moving through all the rooms, he took me back to the East Room, and as we were standing in front of the painting of George Washington, he proposed with the most beautiful, heartfelt speech. I couldn’t believe it, and neither could any of the other tourists! One of the Secret Service agents even let us go behind the ropes to take a picture to capture the special moment. I still tear up thinking about that amazing day, and I can’t believe he managed to sneak the ring through security!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. I found my wedding dress at the first store I went to. It was the third dress I tried on and it fit perfectly–no alterations needed! It fit my personality and style so well–sophisticated and classic, with a touch of spunk. It was a strapless ball gown with a sweetheart neckline, and the top of the dress had ruching to give it some interest. There was also a line of buttons down the back that extended down the train of the dress. We added a sash that had some unfinished edge, fabric flowers, and just the right amount of beads to give it some texture and shine. I paired it with red and white polka dot kitten heels and an elbow-length, unfinished-edge veil to play up my style!

I chose Für Elise as the song that the wedding party and groom walked out to. I grew up playing the piano and that is one of my favorite songs I ever played!

Our wedding colors were red, cream, and navy, so that was the focus for the flowers. I wanted all of the florals to look natural, a little wild, and not too perfect. My florist did an amazing job combining flowers like blue thistle, anemones, daisies, and garden roses with natural greenery, and it was absolutely beautiful. My bouquet couldn’t have been more perfect!

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We loved our “Picnic for Two” sweetheart table. The rosette tablecloth, the greenery draped across our chairs, and the chalkboard sign made our little area the perfect place for us to enjoy some time alone and look over the reception. I also loved that each table was named after a monument Kenny and I visited on our trip to DC. It was a unique way to tie the proposal into our wedding.

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? Being that Kenny and I are from Virginia and Texas respectively, a Southern wedding suited us perfectly! Some of the Southern details we incorporated included an iced tea bar (with a sign that said “Our love is as sweet as the sugar in our tea”), a summer picnic theme with Southern “cookout” food, Americana-inspired decor with a focus on beauty in simplicity, an engraved baseball and bat guest book (go Rangers!), and Southern foods with a twist–like pecan pie pops!

Our first dance was to Christina Perri’s “A Thousand Years.” I always knew the right man would come along, but never thought I would be 30 before he did! It’s a big joke between the two of us that I waited a long time for him, so this seemed to fit. Probably the most special part of the night was Kenny and his daughter Ashlynn’s special dance. They started off with Tim McGraw’s “My Little Girl,” but much to the crowd’s surprise, they switched halfway through to Run DMC’s “Tricky” and totally rocked it out! They had practiced for a couple months beforehand and it was the biggest hit!

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Kenny and I actually met on eHarmony. I had joined the site because I was finding it hard to meet someone in the area, and Kenny was looking for someone who was ready to settle down and didn’t mind that he already had a little girl from his previous marriage. I loved Kenny’s profile–it was witty, charming, and mature. It took us a little while to actually meet in person, but once we did, it didn’t take long for us to realize that we were meant to be!
When did y’all get married? June 28, 2013
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? About 90
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did not write our own vows. Instead, we went with something special our pastor had prepared for us. I don’t think I would’ve managed to keep my emotions in control if we had written our own!
Describe your wedding cake or dessert. A few buzz words we used to describe our wedding were family-focused, casual, fun, summer picnic, and sophisticated. To play up the fun and summer flair, we decided to go with a dessert bar. We had pie pops, macarons, moon pies, s’mores, lemonade tartlets, and a rice krispie groom’s cake! No one could get over how tasty and cute all the little treats were.
Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! I had all of these covered! My something old and borrowed was my great-grandmother’s wedding ring. Her husband didn’t have the money to buy her a ring when they were first married, so he hammered it out of a quarter and she wore it for most of her marriage. I am so honored to be able to keep this special piece of jewelry, and I wear it almost every day. My new and blue was a stunning diamond and aquamarine bracelet that my parents gave me on my wedding day. I couldn’t believe it when I opened the box! My birthstone is aquamarine and I always have a hard time finding jewelry with it, so it’s definitely something I will wear every chance I get.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? I think the biggest challenge while planning was discussing decisions with Kenny. As a bride, I wanted to be selfish and make this day about me and what I wanted, but that wasn’t fair to Kenny! I really had to step back and think about what his vision of our wedding was, and in the end, I think it turned out just right, thanks to our amazing wedding planners!
What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? I loved them all, but I have to go with my wedding planners. Rayven Walker and Jen Rios were absolutely the key to getting the wedding of my dreams. With Rayven keeping me on track with budget and vendors, and Jen designing each little detail, they make quite the team! I know there are many things they did to help each other make it such a special day for Kenny and I, and I couldn’t be happier that I chose them!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? The first look was probably high up on the list, but getting to spend our special day with family and friends was the most memorable part. I didn’t get to talk to everyone as much as I would have hoped, but knowing that they loved us enough to travel to our wedding makes me feel so incredibly blessed!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? The first order of business must be to get a wedding planner that you trust. Just knowing that they can add touches that you wouldn’t think about or find vendors that you can’t (or may stress yourself out trying to find) is worth it. Also, soak in every part of the day. Take a minute or two here and there to step back and enjoy the view. Sneak a moment alone with your spouse or by yourself to really see and feel everything about the event! And one last thing: make sure to eat!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? Next is probably kids, as is with lots of couples. Kenny’s daughter, Ashlynn, is such a big part of our lives and I couldn’t imagine a sweeter child to have as a stepdaughter. I would love to add a child of our own to the family. I am looking forward to just loving each other and our families for many years to come!

Rachel says finding their venue, the gorgeous Rustix Manor, was fate, but I would also vote that fate played a part in Rachel and James’ love story! Rachel was actually waiting on another date when James caught her eye at a party. After dancing well into the night, these two knew they were meant to be. If photos could talk, I’m pretty sure these beautiful ones from Melissa Schollaert would tell the same story. While reading their interview and scrolling this lovely wedding, I couldn’t help but think about how sweet everything was. The love these two have for each other, the adorable babe in a wagon, and ending the night with dancing around a bonfire and making s’mores – yep, sweet as can be!

Both of us wanted to see each other for the first time when I walked down the aisle–it was just something that we both had always known we wanted to do. I totally understand why people do a first look though–I can imagine it makes the time between the ceremony and the reception a lot less stressful–but I wouldn’t have changed our decision.

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. I went to Bridals by Lori with my mom, my sister, James’s mom, and three of my bridesmaids. Everyone picked out a few dresses for me to try, but when I put on the fourth dress, I knew it was the one. It was actually one that the consultant picked out after I told her what I liked, and once I saw myself in it, I knew that I wouldn’t like anything else as much as this one. It was a form-fitting, ivory lace dress with a keyhole back by Marisa.

Y’all, I may not be the biggest fan of flower crowns (mostly because I’m jealous I can’t pull one off!), but these delicate, perfectly-sized ones are amazing!

I wanted the flowers to reflect the feel of the wedding, which was light, romantic, and Southern. My bouquet included ranunculus, garden roses, stock flowers, and feverfew. The bridesmaid bouquets were pink stock flowers and their flower crowns were pink wax flowers. The men’s boutonnieres were pink roses with feverfew, and James’ was a white rose with feverfew. The flowers girls wore baby’s breath crowns.

She is just too cute!!

What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? While we were planning the wedding, we lived in Nashville, but we were both born and raised in Georgia and both of our families still live there, so having the wedding in Georgia was a no-brainer. I knew I wanted a rustic, outdoor wedding, and we looked at several venues before finding Rustix Manor. We were about to sign with a totally different venue before my mom went to lunch with a group of friends, and one of them told my mom she should check out Rustix. When my mom saw it, she absolutely knew it was exactly what I was looking for and we booked it before I even saw it in person. I like to think it was fate!

What Southern details or traditions did you include in your celebration? What was Southern about your wedding? The whole wedding had such a Southern feel, first and foremost through the weather. It was 85 degrees in October, and our guests were fanning themselves with the programs and I was taking cover in the shade to avoid sunburn. The ceremony was on the stoop of a tiny “mock” chapel in the middle of a field, which made it seem like a small town chapel wedding. At the reception, the band played everything from classic rock to country while a bonfire blazed and guests danced and made s’mores. We even had a UGA win that day, so my bridesmaids and I called the dawgs! It was a perfect Georgia wedding.

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: We agree that the best detail of the wedding was the venue itself. It was absolutely perfect and met all of our needs: we had a chapel, a poolside location for cocktail hour, a stage for the band, three bars, a firepit, and the most eclectic Southern decor.

What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? So many special moments come to mind, but I would say one of the most memorable moments was when I was dancing with my dad and ended up losing my cool. The song “Today I Met The Boy I’m Gonna Marry” by Darlene Love was playing, which brought out a lot of emotions for both of us, since we’ve always loved the movie Father of the Bride. James says the most memorable part was seeing me walk down the aisle.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert. Our wedding cake was almond pound cake with raspberry filling and vanilla buttercream frosting. I wanted it to look simple, but elegant, and taste delicious. The groom’s cake was chocolate cake with vanilla filling and chocolate frosting. It was topped with chocolate-covered strawberries and adorned with a big Georgia “G.”

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. We first met on spring break in Destin, FL back in 2009. I was with a group from my sorority and he was with a group from his fraternity. Both of our groups went to UGA. I was actually interested in one of James’ friends, and when we were back at school, his friend invited me to their fraternity party. While he was getting me a drink, I saw James, and we ended up dancing together the entire night. I guess the rest is history!
Tell us all about the proposal! I had been out of town with my mom and sister for a week, and when we came back, James wanted to take me to a nice dinner. He took me to Dominick’s in downtown Norcross, and after dinner, we walked around near the fountain area and he said something about our future that I don’t exactly remember. He then knelt and proposed and gave me the most beautiful engagement ring that he had picked out himself. He had arranged for our families to be together waiting for us at my parent’s house, so afterwards, we were all able to celebrate together!
When did y’all get married? October 5, 2013
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? About 225
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did not write our own vows. I knew I would be way too nervous, but I think James would have preferred saying our own vows if I hadn’t adamantly vetoed it early on.
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? We chose three scriptures to be read by our siblings: my brother read Genesis 2:18-24, James’ sister Stephanie read 1 Corinthians 13:4-7, and my sister Jill read Colossians 3:12-17.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. We had a very talented trio of women play stringed instruments for the ceremony. They played “Jesu, Joy of Man’s Desire” when my grandmothers were being seated, “Canon in D” when my dad walked me down the aisle, “How Great Thou Art” when we took communion as husband and wife, and “Wedding March” when we walked up the aisle together. We both thought all these songs were so beautiful, especially when played by stringed instruments. The band at our reception, Sweetwater Junction, was also extremely talented. They played our first dance song, “Let’s Stay Together” by Al Green, which we love, because it’s so classic, fun, and upbeat.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? Since the whole wedding was outside, our biggest challenge was coming up with a plan B in case it rained. I must have checked the weather 10 times a day the week of the wedding, especially when the forecast called for rain on our wedding day. Our plan B was to put a tent where we had the reception and then have both the ceremony and reception there, which would have still been beautiful and fun, but I’m so glad we were able to stick to the original plan.
What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? All of our vendors were so awesome and we were very happy to have all of them there, but the owners of the venue went above and beyond. They would let us come over anytime we asked (the venue is actually their home), their daughters helped drive guests around in golf carts, and they were always so friendly and accommodating. I asked for a bonfire in 80 degree weather, and they said sure, why not? They definitely made everything from the initial planning to the day-of much less stressful.
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Try not to stress about it too much. I know that is way easier said than done, but you really just have to tell yourself that the day will be beautiful and memorable no matter what. I couldn’t even talk about the wedding two weeks beforehand because it got me so worked up to think about. I wish I could have told myself to relax and not stress. It’s supposed to be a joyous time, so enjoy it!
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We still reside in Nashville and are loving married life. I’ve enjoyed trying out new recipes and we’ve had a lot of fun furnishing and decorating our apartment together. We adopted a little kitten a month after getting married and he’s been the perfect addition to our new family. I’m looking forward to future trips and vacations with both of our families and our own kids, and we are both excited for our family to one day grow.

Anytime a bride cites “Father of the Bride” as a source of wedding inspiration, you know her wedding is going to be lovely! Following a traditional Catholic ceremony, Kelly and Marvin celebrated with their guests in the backyard of Kelly’s childhood home, in a reception full of lush red peonies, the most charming swing, and sweet nods to Kelly’s Chinese heritage. I especially love that their most memorable moment was their peaceful, private drive to the reception, and the fact that Kelly literally let her hair down to twirl around the dance floor with her new husband!

Big SW hugs to the talented Katie Stoops for sharing Kelly and Marvin’s wedding with us!

Tell us about finding your wedding dress. I was so lucky to have my mom with me at every dress appointment. When we visited Carine’s Bridal Atelier, I loved every Monique Lhuillier dress I tried on! Putting my dress on with the veil sealed the deal. I felt like a bride!
Did you have something borrowed, blue, old, and new? If so, do tell! My something borrowed and old was my pendant from my mom, which was passed down to her from my great grandmother. My something new was my shoes. I wore a little something blue under my dress!

I loved our wedding flowers! We used our wedding invitations and other Redoute prints as inspiration. The colors ranged from white, blush, pops of peach, pink, and red. We had peonies, garden roses, clematis, ranunculus, freesia, sweet peas, jasmine, and hypericum. The red peonies were amazing, full, and lush.

Did you decide to do a “first look”? Why or why not? We did not do a first look. It didn’t fit into our schedule before the ceremony and I really wanted that moment of seeing Marvin waiting for me at the altar. I didn’t realize I would become so emotional the moment we arrived at the church!
Did you write your own vows? If so, what was your favorite phrase, verse or line? We did not write our own vows. We stuck to the traditional Catholic vows.

Our favorite detail of the wedding was: The swing! The swing hung on a huge tree in my parents’ backyard, just beyond the tent. It was decorated with greens, beautiful flowers, and ribbon streamers. It added just the right hint of whimsy to our wedding.

What made you choose your ceremony and reception venues? Did they have any special significance to you? St. Clare of Assisi is a beautiful church tucked away in the town of Clifton. It is surrounded by trees and natural beauty. Our reception was at my parents’ house. Ever since I was a little girl watching Father of the Bride, I’ve dreamed about a wedding at the home I grew up in. I couldn’t have picked a more special place for our wedding celebration!

I am half Chinese, and for our favors, my Aunt Wendy handmade tea cups with the Chinese characters for double happiness stamped in red on the front. In China, red is the traditional wedding color, as it signifies joy, love, and prosperity. Because the wedding was at my parents’ house, we were able to use lots of personal items throughout the day.

Our first dance was to “The Way I Am,” by Ingrid Michaelson, and the father daughter dance was to “The Way You Look Tonight,” by Steve Tyrell. Marvin is Puerto Rican and I teach Zumba, so we also put together a collection of salsa music to dance to later in the evening.

Describe your wedding cake or dessert. Our wedding cake was called Heaven and it is my favorite cake–we have it every year for my birthday! It is white chocolate cake with raspberry filling and white chocolate frosting. It was simply decorated and adorned with flowers. We also had a dessert bar with mini sweet treats. The berry crumble with ginger ice cream was amazing!

How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. We first met on Memorial Day 2010 when Marvin moved onto the same floor as me in our condo building. A few months later, after lots of brief chats in the elevator (he was a principal and I am a teacher), he slipped a note under my door. We eventually met for coffee and went out for dinner. We’ve been together ever since! The real love story unfolded shortly thereafter on my birthday when Marvin gifted me our two puppies, Pippi and Penelope!
Tell us all about the proposal! Marvin proposed on Memorial Day 2012, two years after we first met! After finishing dinner with my family, Marvin gave me a gift: a picture of him with our puppies that read, “Will you marry us?” Then, he pulled out the ring, and of course, I said YES!
When did y’all get married? June 29, 2013
How many friends, family members, and loved ones attended your wedding? 100
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony? The readings we selected were Genesis 2:18-24, 1 Corinthians 12:31-13:8, and Mark 10:6-9.
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. We chose “Canon in D” for the procession and “Ode to Joy” for the recessional. A family friend sang the most beautiful “Ave Maria” during the presentation of flowers to Mary.
What was the biggest challenge you had to overcome while planning your wedding? We really wanted an outdoor tented wedding reception, but that meant we had to let Mother Nature do her thing. It poured like crazy the day before our wedding. Thankfully, we had Megan, our wedding planner, by our side, thinking of backup plans for pictures, cocktail hour, etc. Luckily, the sun came out bright and early the morning of our wedding!
If you are comfortable responding, what range did your wedding budget fall into? $50,000-$75,000
What is the one detail or vendor that you were so happy to have as a part of your wedding? I really loved all of our vendors. I’m so happy that we worked with our photographer, Katie Stoops. Her work is amazing and she has a great personality. Plus, she loves dogs! She was able to make us feel comfortable and capture the beauty of the day. I also loved our florist, because she brought our wedding to life. She had such a fun personality and really listened to what we envisioned. I love that in her description of my bouquet, she wrote “It will be drop dead gorgeous.”
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day? My favorite memory of the day was leaving the church with Marvin by my side. We didn’t have a limo, so the two of us drove from the church back to my parents’ house together. I loved the moment we had alone, driving through the back roads of Clifton, with the sun shining down on us. Our other favorite moment was walking out as Mr. and Mrs. Rodriguez, escorted by our puppies!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Don’t stress, and enjoy every moment! What’s meant to be, will be. I felt confident about our wedding day going off without a hitch because we had an amazing wedding planner who stayed on top of the details and thought one step ahead! And, it helps if you have a team of vendors that have worked together in the past.
What’s next for you as a couple? What are you most looking forward to about married life? We are enjoying married life! We bought a home the month before getting married, so we’ve been busily making our home our own. We can’t wait to start a family. We’ve been writing shared goals for our future and we’re excited for the journey ahead!
