Our wedding cake was vanilla with chocolate mousse filling, and the decoration was inspired by the pattern on my gown.The groom’s cake (one of my favorite details of the wedding) was vanilla cake with strawberry banana filling. It was snowboarding themed (Chris’s favorite activity) and completely customized by our awesome baker to match our wedding day looks and Chris’s snowboard and helmet.
All about your gown! My dress was an embroidered Ashley & Justin gown that I first saw on a local bridal store’s Instagram page. I immediately knew I had to try it on, so I scheduled an appointment while my maid of honor was in town from Florida. Of course we arrived to learn that the dream dress was out for repairs that day! I tried on lots of other dresses and went to other stores but couldn’t get past that dress.
So I went back with my mother-in-law and sister-in-law and we FaceTimed my maid of honor. There was no question that it was my dress. It was completely different than anything else I tried and I felt gorgeous. I also had the seamstress add buttons that were on my mother’s wedding dress so I had something of her with me all day.
What was your favorite moment? Too many to pick just one! But if we have to…the spontaneous dance to Journey’s” Don’t Stop Believin’.” All of our guests surrounded us and we rocked out (which our photographers captured HILARIOUSLY well).
One detail you couldn’t live without? My necklace (pearls) from my late mother, and her photo charm on my bouquet with her handwriting.
Did anything go wrong? Not that I noticed!
First dance song? If I Should Fall Behind by Bruce Springsteen.
Any advice for future brides? Pick the things that really matter to you and focus on them, don’t let the rest stress you.
Honeymoon! We went to Italy the next morning. We stayed in Sorrento on the Amalfi Coast, and Rome. We saw all the sights, ate all the food and drank all of the wine.
