Brie and Robert's wedding day has finally arrived! I know that I say this every time, but I am so excited for their wedding today. As always. :) Brie is one of the sweetest brides I know, and this entire time planning has just been fun. She and I have many things in common, including our love of Kate Spade and all things pink, and so that has definitely added to everything as we've been going along. Their wedding is one that I think will go down on my list as one of the prettiest I've ever had the privilege to be a part of, and an amazing way to finish out the year of 2015.
Of course, a great big thank you to Petra Huetzen Journalism and Photography for sharing their engagement photos and for traveling all the way from Germany, I can not wait to see how you capture their day!
So without further adieu, please read more on these two sweethearts, written from Brie's perspective ... and then I hope to see you back here at the blog after their wedding day to share some of the amazing details of the day!
How did you two meet?We met back in college. Robert used to walk me to my car after a night class each week. After graduation, we met up again at a committee meeting and started spending time together. Soon after, we were meeting every night.
When did you know that Robert was the one for you? I don't think there was one particular moment where I knew he was the one. Over time I realized many great things about him that I fell in love with. He is honest and loyal, kind, and would do just about anything for me. He challenges me intellectually and has helped me run and grow a business I started, that is now a joint venture. It has certainly been a fun journey.
How did he pop the question? Share all the details!
Last year, in October, we went on a trip to Hawaii. I hoped that he would pop the question at some point on the trip. We went to Oahu for four days and then to Maui. We had a wonderful trip and I woke up the last morning to a beautiful ring! Even though I hoped he would propose on the trip, I was surprised that morning. It was an amazing trip that I will always remember.
When is your wedding taking place?
Our wedding ceremony will be held at a catholic church in Pensacola, in the evening after dark, and our reception will be in downtown Pensacola. I wanted to be able to use beautiful candlelight at the ceremony. I've always wanted to get married at Christmas time. It is truly my favorite time of year. Having it at this time also allows our family to come and visit with us from Michigan. We are very excited about spending our first Christmas here in Florida after moving from Michigan twenty five years ago!
Describe your wedding in three words.
Sparkly, dazzling, and stunning
Now, share the details! Do you have a theme, or design, or feeling you want your wedding day to encompass?
We can't wait to see how it all comes together! Everything is white and blush. In addition, we are using metallic accents in gold, silver, and rose gold. Since the wedding is at Christmas, there will also be little pops of red in the details. We wanted it to have the feeling of being the holidays without being over the top.
