Wedding Moments Made Magical
From the Bride: I have always dreamed of having an outdoor wedding for the beautiful scenery. When I visited Elings Park, I fell in love with the romantic trees, the large deck that overlooked the city and ocean, and the twinkling lights that draped over the reception area. It was magical and it just felt right being there. I envisioned our wedding to be rustic and romantic. I chose soft pink with tons of greenery to drape over the tables. We are very simple people and I wanted our theme to match our personalities so that our guests would feel just as relaxed as us.
My favorite moment was seeing Cameron’s face as I was walking down the aisle. I have always dreamed and imagined of how he would look at me, and when he looked at me that day it was breathtaking. In that moment, I completely forgot I was getting married because it was just me and him and all my nerves disappeared.
How To Spend Your Wedding MoneySome advice I would give to future brides is enjoy planning your wedding and don't let everyone's opinions or suggestions get in the way of creating your dream day. Being a bride isn't easy because you want to please everyone, but always remember it's you and your finance's day!
Also, I wish I would have spent the extra money and hired a videographer. Try and work a videographer into your budget so you can enjoy your day over and over again through film.
Budgeting for everything can be stressful and you may have to cut a few things you truly wish you could keep. Want to see what this couple did spend their budget on? Click here to find their budget breakdown!
I spent 25,000 dollars on my wedding, which I thought was reasonable because the necessary vendors are pricey and add up quick!

Footloose & Fancy FreeMy dad and I surprised our guests and family with our father-daughter dance. When I was a kid, we loved to watch footloose together and dance around the house to every song. To make our dance special, we choreographed a dance to footloose after we slow danced to My Wish. It was so much fun seeing him dance and mess around like I was a kid again.
I promised myself the week of my wedding that if anything went wrong I wouldn't let it ruin our day and would just go with the flow. I wasn't aware that we forgot to order a dance floor so we didn't have one at our reception; however, our venue was outdoors and everyone danced on the wooden deck the whole night. I actually liked it better because it created a larger area for our guests to dance on. The dance floor would have made it smaller and this way our guests weren't crowded on a small dance floor but had the whole deck instead.
