Just Married: Chrissy ♥ Brad!

November 4, 2009

I'm back and we're married!!!

After a year of planning, it's official~ We're married!

The wedding & honeymoon were so incredible :)

Want to know how it all came together? Well I'm dying to share it all with you!

I honestly could not be more happy with how the wedding turned out. It was a gorgeous day up in the North Georgia Mountains and everything was absolutely beautiful!

It turned out to be even more special than I could have ever imagined. And most importantly, I married my very best friend. Someone who truly makes my heart so happy!

The decor was just as I had imagined & the flowers turned out even more beautiful than I could have ever pictured. Everything was just so vibrant and eye catching!

We had the most delicious menu, the tastiest wedding cake I've ever had and our bridal party looked stunning. Simply put, everything coordinated perfectly!

But do you know what I will remember most? Sure I'll probably remember things like the color of our napkins, and the program design, but most of all, I'll remember how it felt to walk down the aisle and see Brad for the first time... I'll remember the friends who went above and beyond to make our day special, and ill remember the feeling I had when we were announced as Mr. & Mrs. for the first time ever!

The energy at the reception was just so incredible! It was such a special feeling to walk into a room and see all of our friends and family smiling back- cheering for us! I felt like we were in a movie! Our first dance was so special & so so sweet. I cannot wait to share that with you all! {Yes, I have video}

Am I proud of the presentation of things? You best believe it! I put a lot of work into making our day the most special it could be. Every weekend, for as long as I can imagine, I spent working on projects! Almost everything was hand crafted. From menus, to favor tags, to programs & escort cards! And through it all, my efforts truly paid off. Everything felt so charming.

I remember looking around the room with such happiness in my heart! But in addition to making things look pretty, I also put a lot of effort into incorporating special moments throughout the ceremony & reception that made our wedding unique to us. Because in the end, it's the moments you'll remember. It's the people you love & who love you that matter most.

So definitely be sure to stay tuned. I have a million and one posts planned to bring you up to speed on all of the things I experienced this year. I'll be sharing all of the details! From beginning to end. From finding the dress to designing all things paper- I have so much in store for you all!

Its a little overwhelming!! Where should I start? Should I show you the end result and work backwards or should I start from the beginning? Decisions, decisions.

In addition, please know that I'll be offering up tips & advice to all who care to listen :) I have learned so much throughout this year of planning and it will really feel good to be able to now pass this information along to you all! So tell me...What are you most excited to see or hear about?

So, so glad it went so well! Yay!! Since my daughter is getting married in June and we are in the midst of planning, I am interested in everything you have to say. Also, you're suggestions! I would love to share her plans with you, but we don't want it broadcasted to the world until after the big day. If you are interested, please let me know. I could email them to you. I know she would appreciate any comments or suggestions you might make!

CONGRATULATIONS!! I am really excited to hear more about the details (and I'm sure you are excited to share them) The advice I am most curious about are what decisions (other than the groom) meant the most on the day of? Did you find you spent a lot of time thinking/worried about a detail that come wedding day ended up being not that important? What should us planning brides-to-be focus most of our energy on?

How funny you were there at the same time as us... we were on Honeymoon Beach the day of the proposal (thursday) and there was just us and another couple further down the beach... but we went to St. John again by ferry on Saturday day! So funny! Isn't it such a beautiful place? I'll look into adding you on FB later! :)
