Details of the day: The day started off cold and cloudy and while we were all getting our hair and makeup on the sun slowly started to come out. It was sunny and beautiful afternoon as we began taking pictures in the gorgeous Gardner of The Park Savoy Estate with our 23 bridesmaids and groomsmen! It was a beautiful warm April night. My wedding dress was a mix of vintage and modern, which had been our vision for the wedding while planning.
From the first look to the last dance the day was perfect. The band played non-stop hits and there was never a moment where all 250 people weren’t on the dance floor. We felt so truly lucky to be surrounded by our friends and family to celebrate our special day in our dream venue.
Your favorite part: My favorite part of the day was our wedding ceremony. We are an interfaith couple and the joining and support of our two families was truly amazing. We wrote our own vows and I felt it truly added a special touch to the ceremony- people who were in attendance but may not know the type of couple we are (distant relatives etc) were able to get an insight into the type of couple we are. Our Rabbi was so warm and open and made the ceremony feel very intimate and helped us keep focus of what the day was all about.
If you could change one thing about your wedding what would it be? To make it last longer!
Advice for other brides: Enjoy every moment, let it all soak in. Try to be as present as possible. Take a moment during the reception and watch all the people you love enjoying themselves. Appreciate that you will never again have all the people you love in the same room as you celebrating your love and happiness.
