A little bit about you two, and how your wedding reflects who you are –
When people asked what the theme for our wedding was, it was never easy to give a straightforward answer. After pondering, the theme we came up with was LOVE. We want to set the tone by writing our own vows and having a close friend of the groom’s perform our nuptials. Beyond that there have been quotes to inspire feelings of love sprinkled throughout the process. From the Save the Date to the invitation, a quote to stir feelings of love and loving have been prominent. We’re continuing that by having a different quote about the meaning of love at each table. We hope that the theme catches on and is spread throughout the night. The other thought that continued to echo in our minds was fun. We really wanted to encourage our guests to view our union as a party and on occasion to celebrate. We hired a DJ that we believe knows how to get the party started. We wanted no excuses for everyone being on the dance floor, so despite requesting cocktail attire that will likely demand high heels, we’re providing flip flops for aching feet. As a girl who LOVES her high heels, I can understand the dilemma of aching feet and your jam being played. No ambiguity about where we want our guests. On the dance floor!
