We’re so excited for all of our weddings coming up this end of the summer and this fall! Here is one of our couples getting married in August!
Names of Bride and Groom: Sarah and Michael
Wedding Date: August 20th, 2011
Ceremony and Reception Location: Groom’s parent’s farm in Lambertville, NJ
How did you and fiance meet?: eHarmony.com
Tell us about the proposal: Mike and I were walking around his parents farm talking about where we would like to build a house on the property. I was a little ahead of him and heard him say “Since we are talking about our future, why don’t we start now.” I turned around and he was right behind me, down on one knee, holding a box with a ring and said “Will you marry me.” I said yes of course and burst into tears.
What is the overall theme of your wedding?: The only “theme” is traditional meets fun.
What has been your favorite part of planning?: Internet shopping and researching for the best prices and BEST vendors (I feel like I am doing my job as a girl if I can find the absolute best prices and items for things that can be shopped.) But with that being said, some things you need to spend more money on, like catering, music, venue and coordinators.
What has been your fiance’s favorite part of the planning?: Caterer tastings
What are you looking forward to most on the wedding day?: All of our friends and family from all over the country being together in one place.
What is your fiance looking forward to on the wedding day?: The food
Which vendor has been your favorite to work with?: I have 3…Our Priest, Father Mike, because he always makes me laugh and see things from another prospective. Synergetic Sound, because they have been very flexible and honest on what to do and what not to do with lighting. And of course, Erin and Lisa at Proud to Plan because they make me feel very relaxed.
What is your biggest worry about the wedding day?: Getting the pictures done in time and the food. (We have Seared Wasabi Tuna on the menu and I really want it to be perfect)
What makes your wedding unique from all the others?: I have paid ridiculous attention to EVERY detail of the weekend. We have custom water bottles for the welcome bags, the ceremony and the Sunday BBQ. On the bathroom doors, I have 8×11 framed childhood pictures of Mike and I, Mike for the boys restroom and myself for the girls. I also want all of my guests to have an amazing weekend, not just a good time on Saturday.
Give three words to describe what you imagine you’ll feel like the day AFTER the wedding: Relaxed, happy and anxious
Where will you be spending your honeymoon?: Curacao in the Dutch Antilles
