From the Bride... When planning our wedding, we wanted to keep things simple and keep the focus on our faith, our families coming together, and our relationship. Our venue is so beautiful that I wanted to keep the colors and flowers soft to compliment the beautiful estate. The exterior of Fiddler's is blooming with flowers and ivy that resemble an English garden, and I was hoping to carry that throughout the wedding.

Joe and I are simple people and we wanted to let our relationship speak for itself when wedding planning. It was also important for us to have everything be truly meaningful: our priest was a former professor of ours from the college where we met, Joe's uncle was our organist, my very talented friend was our cantor, I did all the calligraphy myself, and my maid of honor put all the little details of the day together. Even though we had over 200 guests, the day felt very intimate and emotional.

My favorite part of planning was dress shopping with my mother and mother-in-law. I kept the dress a secret from everyone else. My favorite "detail" was my "something blue," an heirloom ring passed down from my mother with my great grandmother's diamonds. Another favorite detail was the beautiful glass dome centerpiece that my florist created.

While our entire day was perfectly emotional and joyous, the best part of the day for both of us was seeing each other at the church for the first time. Just like we waited until marriage to live together, we waited until my daddy lifted my veil at alter to see each other. It was a feeling of such excitement that cannot be explained! After that, everything felt "right" and our day was relaxed and enjoyable, just as it should be.
