Real Weddings

Kristen and Russell at The Mill Lakeside Manor

Posted on February 24, 2020 by Ariana Baio

We met working together at Sam Ash Music in 2008. Started dating March 2009.

It was an inside joke between us. He stuck little googly eyes on almost everything in our apartment, including the ring box.

I had a soft rustic theme, lots of greenery. My favors were little potted succulents which doubled as seating cards.

The Mill was incredible in every way. The staff is so kind and attentive, the food was remarkable and the location was perfect.

We had a choice of chicken, seafood trio, eggplant, or chateaubriand. Our cake was vanilla with cookies & cream filling with vanilla frosting.

My gown was Maggie Sottero and I chose it primarily because of the low back. The buttons and fabric were gorgeous and it fit like a glove.

I can’t pick just one! The entire day was a dream.

I can’t decide!

Technically, the only thing that did not go according to plan was the weather, but looking at our photographs I’m so happy it rained. Stunning.

“The Rest of My Life” by Tim McGraw & Faith Hill.

Take it one day at a time. And enjoy every moment because the day flies by!

No honeymoon yet, but we are planning to visit the Florida Keys.
