Read on below to learn about one of our September couples, Sarah and Adam! We’re looking forward to their beach wedding!
Names of Bride and Groom: Sarah and Adam
Wedding Date: Friday, September 16th
Ceremony Location: On the beach, in front of the Atlantic Sands Hotel, in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware
Reception Location: Our reception will be held at the Atlantic Sands Hotel. The cocktail hour will be held on their rooftop deck, followed by an intimate dinner held in their boardwalk restaurant, Atlantic Seafood Grille.
How did you and your fiance meet?: Adam and I met while “studying” engineering at Rutgers University, in New Jersey.
Tell us about the proposal: We had planned a trip to Hawaii, and then for my birthday, Adam scheduled us both for a day of relaxation during our vacation. He booked a full day of spa treatments for me, and a round of golf for himself; followed by a romantic dinner together overlooking sunset on Oahu. By giving this as a birthday present, he was able to avoid any suspicions I would have had, without the birthday excuse. After a delicious dinner in Waikiki, we went for a walk on the beach, where he then dropped on one knee and popped the question!
What is the overall theme of your wedding?: Our theme is probably best described as vintage cottage chic. We are blending a vintage, DIY look, but staying with the true beach vibe, seeing as our reception will be about 10 feet from the beach.
What has been your favorite part of planning?: Shopping!
What has been your fiance’s favorite part of the planning?: Planning the honeymoon.
What are you looking forward to most on the wedding day?: Marrying my best friend in front of all my favorite people in the world.
What is your fiance most looking forward to on the wedding day?: Seeing me walk down the aisle! (sooo sweet, I know!)
Which vendor has been your favorite to work with?: All of our vendors have been really spectacular, which I especially appreciate since we are planning a Delaware Beach wedding from Connecticut! I can’t possibly pick one that has been our favorite to work with, but these four individuals have really been incredible: Our planner, Erin Proud; our photographer, Angie Moon; our florist, Carl Grimm of Bayberry Flower; and our site coordinator, Gina Derrickson.
What is your biggest worry about the wedding day?: Icky weather which would drive our celebration indoors!
What makes your wedding unique from all the others?: We will have a few unique, handmade details during the reception- including table overlays, banners, and drink stirrers, among others. But our ceremony will also be unique: for example, we have chosen to have our own siblings stand beside each of us during the ceremony, so my brother and sister will stand beside me and Adam’s sister will stand beside him.
Give three words to describe what you imagine you’ll feel the day AFTER wedding day: Happy, Excited, Tired
Where will you be spending your honeymoon?: Safari in Kenya and then Capri, Italy
Anything else you’d like to share?: This past has been amazingly fun and we are so, so excited to share our wedding celebration with our wonderful family and friends.
