… insights from meredith …

how would you describe your wedding to someone who was not there? what were some of your inspirations? how did you envision the wedding prior to your special day?
Our day was beyond what we had expected – it was more beautiful, fun, love-filled, and memorable than we ever could have imagined. Our families and friends seemed to blend perfectly – most of the people we love in our lives were in one room and it was the best feeling! I grew up in our church and club venues and had always hoped to be married/celebrate there. I wanted a classic, simple, family-oriented, and fun wedding – I think we more than fulfilled my vision.

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
Less worrying over the minor details. In the end, everything was perfect to us and all of the details came together.

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Reception venue. Even as a little girl, I wanted to celebrate at TYCC – a place filled with many fond memories. And Christi, along with the entire team at the club, did a fantastic job organizing and running the event!
Photography. As the amateur historian in my family, I needed the best photographer for such a momentous day in our lives. Thank you, Marissa, for being the best!
Flowers. Carmen’s Flowers was fantastic! Carmen completely fulfilled my vision with beautiful, classic floral arrangements, bouquets, and more.

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
I think we saved a lot on our cake by ordering it from Publix. I have always loved Publix cakes and Publix Greenwise did not disappoint with the taste or the beautiful design!

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
Having the bridal party get ready at my childhood home – Rachel Reumann and her team were wonderful! The bridal party and my mother/mother-in-law felt so pampered and looked beyond exquisite!

what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
To enjoy the day without worrying about the details and to know that it will go by quicker than you expect. I relished every moment!

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
How many last minute details came to light within a week of the wedding.

was there a moment during your wedding day that surprised you?
Despite the advice I received from many, I was still surprised how quickly the day went by!

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
We have so many “favorite” moments – reciting our vows in front of family and friends, walking out of the church to “Ode to Joy” with the church bells ringing, dancing together and with family/friends, listening to the speeches from the matron of honor and Nate’s siblings (in honor of their dad, the best man), and more!

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
The love felt between us and our family/friends who made the journey to celebrate our marriage.

… insights from ginger…

how would you describe your wedding to someone who was not there? what were some of your inspirations? how did you envision the wedding prior to your special day?
Romantic, elegant, & beautiful.

is there anything you wish you had done differently when planning your wedding?
Nope! I really trusted my vendors and I didn’t spend time micromanaging them. I expressed my vision, believed in their expertise, and let them do what they do best! Thanks to all of them everything turned out pretty perfect!

which three vendors were most important to you when planning your wedding?
Aside from the venue itself, photography & videography were most important to me. Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life and it goes by in the blink of an eye. When it’s all said and done, the only thing you have left are memories. Thankfully, photography & videography help capture these memories and immortalize them into something concrete that can never be forgotten.

what was your biggest wedding day savings?
Not having a bridal party! This wasn’t only an all around wedding day savings but also a major factor in decreasing stress levels! All my closest friends were still a major part of my wedding but without the stress of bridesmaid dresses, special hair-dos, and bridal party flowers. I wanted all my friends to have the freedom to feel just as beautiful as I did & they all looked stunning!

what was your biggest wedding day splurge?
Flowers! They are expensive but it was totally worth it for me! Flowers have this remarkable ability to bring life, happiness, & color into any room. My venue was naturally beautiful but dressed up, it was truly breathtaking. My florists really did a spectacular job in creating a truly magical atmosphere.
what was the best advice you received when planning your wedding?
Probably the same advice that every bride gets, to not stress out & enjoy the day. It’s really good advice.

was there anything encountered during wedding planning that was unexpected?
I ended up having to find a new vendor for something that was really, really important to me very last minute in the planning process and that was super stressful for me because, let’s be honest, all the good vendors always book up very early! My original vendor ended up being something like one of the wedding horror stories that you read about in a bridal magazine but don’t think actually exist. Thankfully, I found out all these negative issues early enough in the game and with some recommendations from my awesome day planner, I was fortunate enough to find someone who was highly recommended, talented, sincere, & available to replace the original vendor. I’ve always believed that with thorough research & preparation, you can avoid situations like the one I was in but this experience just goes to show that even despite our best efforts, sometimes things just happen. It was also a friendly reminder that for every bad person, there are so many more good people. My new vendor ended up being amazing & working with her was a very fortunate accident.

was there a moment during your wedding day that surprised you?
My wonderful photographer surprised me with another awesome photographer as the second shooter! When I opted for a second shooter, I knew Marissa Moss would find someone talented to help her out on our special day but I didn’t think much else of it. I certainly had no idea she would get another super skilled, well known Tampa Bay photographer to join her! It was such a lovely surprise and definitely a dream come true to have two very talented photographers capturing your special day!

what was your favorite moment, or favorite part, of your wedding day?
I absolutely loved our ceremony. I really wanted it to incorporate poetry and literature and our officiant was able to do just that in such a graceful manner. She has such a lovely speaking voice and I felt she was really able to captivate the guests.

The father/daughter & mother/son dances were also very special. We hold our parents near & dear so it was really important for us to have that moment alone with them.

when you look back on your wedding day in 50 years, what do you think you’ll remember most?
Overall, the emotions! What a wonderful feeling to have all your family & friends together in one room!

But if I had to pick a specific moment, I would say probably our vows! We both messed up on the ‘repeat after me’ part (although, I will admit, I messed up a little more) but it was so funny & lighthearted. All the guests were laughing & so were we!
