This week’s featured bride is Kyle, who is getting married next Saturday! Read on below to find out more about her wedding plans.
Names of Bride & Groom: Kyle & Olin
Wedding Date: June 4, 2011
Ceremony Location: St. Mark’s Church in Philadelphia
Reception Location: Union League of Philadelphia
How did you and your fiancé meet?: We met when we were both sophomores at Brown.
Tell us about the proposal: Olin is from Vermont, so we often travel to Burlington to see his family. Last summer, we decided to go to the Vermont Brewers festival while we were up there. Before the festival, we spent all afternoon doing our favorite things in Burlington: lunch at Flatbreads, shopping on Church Street, and ice cream at Ben & Jerry’s. We had some time to kill, so we stopped to take a break and hang out in the park. As we were about to leave, Olin popped the question! I said yes, and we had an amazing night at the festival enjoying the sunset over Lake Champlain.
What is the overall theme of your wedding? Do you have an inspiration board you’d like to share?: The theme for the wedding is elegance, tradition, and FUN. The Union League is a classic space, and we wanted the wedding to have the same feel, but we’re also throwing in some modern touches so the wedding reflects our personalities.
What has been your favorite part of planning?: I live in Boston, so I’ve really enjoyed traveling back to the Philadelphia area to visit my family and share the planning with them.
What has been your fiancé’s favorite part of the planning?: Working with Kurt and Jellyroll to plan the music for the event.
What are you looking forward to most on the wedding day?: Our first dance! We’ve been practicing!
What is your fiancé most looking forward to on the wedding day?: He says he’s most looking forward to standing at the altar and seeing me come up the aisle…but I suspect it’s sipping an Old Fashioned at the Union League with his buddies after we’re officially married!
Which vendor has been your favorite to work with?: Proud to Plan! I would never have been able to do this without the recommendations and advice from Erin and Lisa. I’ve also loved working with Gabe from Philip Gabriel photography. Our engagement pictures were such a success – I can’t wait to see how he captures the wedding day.
What is your biggest worry about the wedding day?: I hope it doesn’t rain, but at least all the events are indoors.
What makes your wedding unique from all the others?: We have guests flying in from all over the U.S. as well as Australia and the U.K. We’re so excited that all our family and friends are coming to celebrate with us!
Where will you be spending your honeymoon?: We’re going to Hawaii for our honeymoon! We’re looking forward to adventuring around the islands and finally taking some time to relax.
