Here is the interview with our beautiful bride:
HOW DID YOU MEET?
We met during a Halloween Party hosted by mutual friends who introduced us that night; while neither one of us remembers our costume, we gained something more that night!
HOW DID HE POP THE QUESTION?
We were at New Smyrna Beach for a House Warming party and Jeff asked Amber to go on a walk. After walking for a few minutes, Amber wanted to turn around and start walking back to the house. Jeff insisted on continuing on the current path knowing we were just a few feet from where Jeff wrote in the sand, “Amber will you marry me?” Jeff got down on one knee and the rest is history!! When we got back to the house we had breakfast and champagne along with family and friends to celebrate!
WHAT WAS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION?
Our wedding was a reflection of both of our individual styles and an expression of how we truly feel about each other and all of our family and friends. Timacuan Golf & Country Club is by far the most luxurious venue for a Central Florida wedding. The tall wooden cathedral ceilings and the gorgeous crystal chandeliers stole our hearts from the beginning! We both wanted a very classic and romantic wedding.
DESCRIBE SOME OF YOUR FAVORITE WEDDING DETAILS
The Groom’s Cake! We are both huge GATORS fans and the cake was absolutely perfect! The flowers were just as I imagined and were stunning. We had a great relationship with our DJ and planned most of the music with him. We will have memories forever of our 200 guests dancing the night away!
WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
We both tried to soak up the day and take as many mental snapshots as we could. If we had to choose one part of our wedding I think it would be our first glance at each other while walking down the aisle towards each other. It was the most special, magical and glorious day of our lives!
HOW WAS YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH YOUR PHOTOGRAPHERS?
We had a blast working with Dave and Janelle during our engagement shoot and wedding day! Their energetic and creative personalities, between the two of them, were incredible and they had us excited and ready for amazing shots! We were thrilled to work with both of them and will have fantastic images for a lifetime!
WHAT ARE YOU LOOKING FORWARD TO MOST AS A MARRIED COUPLE?
We are thrilled to begin the next part of our lives together! We are most excited to have the chance to enjoy and strengthen are relationship each and every day. We have been in love for seven years and are truly blessed to have found one another.
ANY ADVICE FOR FUTURE BRIDES?
Get a great wedding planner! I don’t think we could have done it without the help of All Souls Catholic Church and Timacuan. Both venues provided coordinators and this made our job super easy and was our biggest stress reliever. Everything will fly by and it will be over before you know it so take it all in and enjoy every minute!
