…insight from alexandra…

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
One of my favorite parts of our wedding day was the ceremony. Justin and I already had our first look but there was still so much anticipation in my heart walking down the aisle. Since we started planning I had visualized walking down that hallway towards him. I pretty much custom wrote out the wording for our officiant (who was my best friends dad, making it very special) and we also wrote our own vows. The whole ceremony was just so full of love and I still tear up thinking about it.

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
Everyone says this but it’s hard to listen. I wish I hadn’t sweat the small stuff. I had such a difficult time making decisions on some things. There’s all these little details to plan out and there’s so much information out there! In the end everything turned out beautiful.

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
The most important vendors for us were the videographer, photographer and venue. Those really set the stage for a memory to last a life time.

what was your biggest wedding day splurge? (and was it worth it?)
Our venue was probably the biggest splurge. I visited OE a few years ago when they first opened and immediately though “this is where I want to get married”. A few years later once we were engaged we didn’t waste much time before booking an appointment with Sarah, OE’s wedding planner. We didn’t look at any other venues and booked a date at OE immediately. Hands down the best wedding related decision we made because it was absolutely flawless.

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding? (and did you listen?)
*Take a moment to take it all in* We tried, we really did. I remember taking a few minutes here and there to pull Justin aside to try to soak it up together but IT GOES BY SO FAST. I think that’s why photos and videos are so important because in a blink on an eye it’s over.

was there a moment(s) during your wedding day that surprised you?
It really surprised me how perfectly everything came together. During the process I wasn’t totally sure of the decisions I was making but once I saw everything I had picked out .. wow. I was speechless.

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
When I look back on our wedding day in 50 years I will remember all the joy and love we felt and how amazing it was to have all the people we cherish with us. I will remember feeling like an absolute princess in the perfect little world that Oxford Exchange helped us create. Most of all I will remember how honored I felt to be marrying the man of my dreams <3

… insight from neely …

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
The whole day was my favorite part! We were putting the last minute touches on everything up until the night before the wedding so once the day finally arrived I was ready to just enjoy the day. If I have to pick a favorite moment, I think it would be when my husband and wedding party walked into the reception while everyone was at the cocktail hour. It was such a special moment to see how our hard work came together and to share the moment with our best friends.
is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
I’m normally a laid back person and not much of a planner and I think I underestimated the amount of time some of the details would take to get done. We had a lot of fresh citrus in our wedding decorations so a lot of the smaller details could not be done until a few days before the wedding. It was also tricky to plan a wedding in Winter Park from D.C. If I could do anything differently, I would have made sure to come up with better game plans for the week of the wedding to avoid scrambling at the end. It took a lot of family and friends to pull it all together at the end!
which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?

Photographer:)– We knew the actual wedding day would be a blur and I wanted to make sure we had beautiful photos to remember our big day!

Caterer – Mark and I love cooking together and going out to eat so food was an important part for our wedding! We wanted to make sure the food was memorable for our guests which is why we chose shrimp and grits to start instead of salad!

Flowers – I wanted our wedding to have a garden/orange grove feel and having lots of unique flowers and citrus was important to bringing this idea to life.

what was your biggest wedding day savings? (and was it worth it?)
When we were choosing our venue we were between two places and opted for the Winter Park Civic Center where we basically had a blank canvas to plan our wedding. It ended up saving us a bunch because we could bring our own alcohol/choose our own caterer rather than being limited by the one-two vendors at the other venue option. It was totally worth it and we were able to pick our top food options and alcohol without going over budget!
what was your biggest wedding day splurge? (and was it worth it?)
Our biggest splurge was probably either the flowers or the pies. We opted for doing mini-pies and mini-bundt cakes which were totally worth it! We intended on doing pies instead of wedding cake as a cost saver because but the pies ended up costing more than we thought. Everyone loved the pies and bundt cakes (they were so good!!) and it added an extra decoration to our reception so I’m glad we did this! A few weeks before the wedding we decided to add bunches of eucalyptus to the church pews which were very pretty. The bunches looked great and we were able to put them on the pie table at the reception but we probably could have saved a few hundred dollars without them.
what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding? (and did you listen?)
So many people told us that the actual wedding day will fly by and you will barely remember it. Mark and I tried to keep that in mind and just take in and enjoy the day! I think we did a pretty good job of making sure to take in the moments (and eat!) on our special day!
was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
During the reception we were a little behind schedule and everyone was having a great time dancing so we ended up extending the reception for an extra half an hour! We ended up not really being able to do a big exit because the shuttles had to leave right after the reception ended but it was worth it!
when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
I will remember my husband’s face when I walked down the isle- it was such a surreal moment to know that we actually getting married! I will also remember the love and support we had from our family and friends. Some of the best (and maybe most stressful) moments were the late nights tying ribbons and building chocolate boxes all together. So many people stepped in to help and it makes us feel so lucky to be surrounded by such great people!!

… insight from emily …

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
My favorite moment of the wedding was our first look. I was so nervous all day and having some time completely alone with Ryne took away all of the stress of the day. The rest of the night was completely crazy and we didn’t have any alone time so those few minutes before it all started were perfect.
is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
I wish I would have stressed less about the little things. I don’t think anyone even noticed what the table numbers looked like or that there was a drip of paint on the back of the card box globe, the stuff I was stressed about in the weeks before the wedding didn’t even matter in the end. Everything ended up perfect!
which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?

1. Venue- We are both teachers and it was very important to me that my wedding took place in a venue that a high school prom would not take place in. I plan Prom for the school I work for and I knew immediately I wanted a unique venue. I wanted a venue that on its own was beautiful and that was different than a typical ballroom.

2. Photography- In the end all that is left is the pictures and we knew we wanted to have amazing and timeless pictures that we can use to remember the night.

3. My Dress- The moment when I walked out of the dressing room and looked in the mirror and started to tear up I knew it was my dress. I have heard people buy a dress and end up regretting in, I had the opposite reaction the closer the wedding got the more excited I got to wear my dress. My dress was the exact opposite of everything I thought I wanted in a wedding dress and it was perfect.

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding? (and did you listen?)

Advice:Take time during the wedding to take it all in.

Everyone I talked to said that the wedding flies by and that you won’t remember any of it when its all over.

Did I listen: Yes! I made sure to take time towards the end of the night to sit on the bench around the fountain alone for a few minutes just to take it all in. The beautiful decorations, the fact that everyone I loved and cared about was in place and the fact that I got to marry the love of my life!

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
Our vows to each other. We decided to write our own vows and not share them with each other until they were read at the ceremony. They were a perfect mix of serious and funny and I think represented the love we have for each other.
