How did you two meet or how did he propose?: We met in 2005 at my garage sale. We still have the leather sectional Don purchased in our family room that we can’t seem to part with. He proposed to me in front of my closest friends (Shani, Monica, Darlene) at a dinner party at the Royal Palms on June 14, 2015.
Were you happy with the venue?: Yes! We look forward to hosting future events there.
Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception: Theme: Rustic Elegance, Color: Deep wine burgundy’s & plums, champagnes, silvers, mercury, ivory, & greens. We wanted our wedding to have a splash of color with a rustic feel using a combination of different elements such as wood, iron, glass, metal, & fire. With the help of our florist, I believe we accomplished this ambiance with a mixture of furniture types, various textures of linens, lit candles, floral arrangements, added fixtures, custom details, and table accents we chose.
What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day?: I believe the most important thing is to hire a florist who is on the same page as you and your significant other. Don’t stress over the small stuff…everything will come together and at the end of the day, your wedding day will be more fabulous than you even imagined!! Most importantly… have fun & enjoy all the special moments and festivities that will lead up to your BIG day!!!
