We are excited to share the full post from Sydney and Edward’s elegant museum wedding! A few words from the lovely bride…
Please tell us a little about how yall met/ your story?
Edward and I knew each other in high school. Anna, his sister, and I had a class together in college. Edward would drive us to and from biology when we did not feel like walking. It was not until then that he asked me on a date…the rest is history!!
What was your vision for your wedding? Favorite Detail?
I have always wanted an elegant and sophisticated wedding. I wanted everything to be in white and blush tones with a lot of draping. Most importantly, I wanted everyone to have fun. The band was important to both Edward and myself because we wanted a memorable party!!
My favorite detail of the wedding day would be wearing my Nike Air Force One wedge tennis shoes. I took all of my pictures in my blue heels, but I wanted to be comfortable and enjoy dancing the night away. I actually walked down the aisle in my Nikes and by the end of the night, I was the only one with my shoes still on! I also loved taking my Mom’s wedding dress and redesigning it into my rehearsal dinner outfit. It was so special that I could wear her dress with my own twist. She loved it and so did I – a memory for both of us!
What was your favorite part about planning?
Have a wedding planner who can see your vision and adapt to your wants and needs made everything so easy and the planning process so stress free. Neillie, Chelsea, and the whole Mariée Ami team understood exactly what I envisioned. They gave me just enough options and through their experience made the process flawless.
What was your most memorable part of your day?
The most memorable part of my day was seeing Edward for the first time at the end of the aisle. His face was so full of love that I really did not notice anything else. Seeing his expression was just perfect!
