WHY DID YOU CHOOSE YOUR INVITATION?: Our wedding was meant to be outside (but it rained) at a bird sanctuary/historic garden and my colors were green and black – the raven invitation was perfect. I wanted a unique and colorful invite with a pop. I got a lot of compliments because they were so different from everyone else’s invites.
YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAIL: I have a few… the fan programs with Zeppelin lyrics, the Apple-tini lounge and apple table, the incredible centerpieces, and the basket of flip-flops next to the dance floor for guests with sore feet!
FAVORITE/MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT ON YOUR WEDDING DAY: Our first dance. Jon and I had taken dance lessons for weeks and even practiced in the parking lot of our apartment building in the rain the week of the wedding. We danced to Coldplay’s “Fix you” and we were very determined to get it right. It was an amazing feeling hearing our song come on and moving effortlessly across the dance floor with our friends and family cheering in the background.
