Post Wedding Survey: Colleen & Roger

The wonderful Collen and Roger took time out of the busy schedule to write this for us. Much love to the happy couple. Enjoy!

Q. What was the best part of your wedding day?

A. By far, the best part of our wedding day was getting a moment alone right after the ceremony.  We were able to be lovey-dovey and share in the excitement of being husband and wife without any cameras or interruptions.  It was SO important to have this time together because it was the only time we were able to spend alone the whole night.  The rest of the evening was full of chatting with guests and posing for pictures.

Q. What do you feel was totally unnecessary?

A.Spending so much money.  Every detail that we put together during our eight month engagement was, without a doubt, absolutely perfect.  The tables, flowers, lighting, and rentals were divine, but what made the day perfect was marrying each other, not the setting or the amount of money that we spent creating such a gorgeous event.

Q. What would you change, if anything?

A. I would change our vision of the day.  I would have put more focus on making the day about our marriage and our family and close friends and not on the d├ęcor.  I also wish I would have put my foot down more to only invite guests that we, not our parents, wanted to invite.

Q. Who was your dress made by?

A. My dress was called Detalle and made by La Sposa.  I got it at Pebbles Bridal in Woodland Hills.

Q. What was unexpected that you loved?

A. That a lot of our bridal party had never met before, but are now SUCH great friends!

Q. What are your fondest memories of your wedding day?

A. Aside from actually getting married and spending time alone together immediately after our ceremony, we loved our first look.  It was so special to the two of us – it calmed us down and got us excited for the day.  It was such an emotional moment to be with each other all dressed and ready to marry each other.

Q. Is there anything you wish you had spent more time or money on?

A. Nope.

Q. Is there anything you wish you had spent less time or money on?

A. Overall, I wish we had spent much less money!!

Q. Were there any unexpected surprises or issues?

A. Nope, the entire day ran INCREDIBLY smooth!!  All thanks to Amber and her team for this!!  Our main goal for hiring a wedding planner was to allow us to enjoy our wedding day and not have to worry about putting all the little details together.  It was truly amazing how well-organized the day was; even our guests after the wedding mentioned how everything was so well planned!

Q. What's your number #1 tip for future engaged couples?

A. I know this is obvious, but really try to plan your wedding around your marriage and what makes you as a couple so undeniably perfect for each other.  Think about what will make you happy and not how you can throw a perfect party for your guests.

Q. How did you feel after the wedding?

A. Utterly in-love and so unbelievably happy!  It is such a wonderful feeling to call your best friend your husband or your wife!
