Wedding date: 5/5/12
When did you first meet: December 2006

When did you know you were going to marry him: When we got back together after a short break-up I knew I didn’t want to be with anyone else.
How did he propose: In Las Vegas on the 64th floor of the club Mix in The Hotel.
Favorite thing to do together: spending time together and going on dates.
THE WEDDING SCOOOP:
Wedding colors: Red/Black
Number of guests: 210
Number in wedding party: 13 (5 bridesmaids, 5 groomsmen, flower girl and 2 ushers)
Wedding Style: Classic
Beauty style: Romantic
Dress style: Ivory, black flower details, sweetheart neckline
Most unique wedding personalization: Casino theme. Since we got engaged in Las Vegas, we wanted to make it a part of our wedding day. The tables were named as Las Vegas Casinos/Hotels and our cake was in the shape of a dice.
Something you did very different: We had an Elvis Impersonator sing our first dance song, “Can’t Help Falling in Love.”
Something you did very traditional: The ceremony
Something you would do all over again: The whole thing! We had a blast and really enjoyed seeing our family and friends together.
Something you would never do again: I’m not sure. We really enjoyed the day and it will be a memory forever!
Most memorable wedding moment: The day itself. There are so many memories from May 5th I can’t just pick one. Marrying my best friend, seeing family/friends, spending time with the wedding party in the limo, having Elvis sing our first dance…I could go on and on! J
Best wedding decision: Having an 18 month engagement. Gave us enough time to plan and save! I think it was less overwhelming and stressful.
Best wedding overall advice: Take your time, don’t rush the engagement.
