    10. Favorite wedding memory: The look on DH's face when the doors opened for me to walk down the aisle

    11. What detail would you change about your wedding? Add another hour to the rental of the building so that we had more time to get pictures before the ceremony and right afterwards.

    12. Favorite wedding item (i.e., cake topper, centerpieces, bouquet, etc): my dress!

    13. Last dance song? The Dance by Garth Brooks...I am soo glad that we picked this song. It was the only really slow song that my grandma (who is in her 90s) was able to dance to and DH was the one to dance with her. It is one of my favorite pictures too.

    5. Cake flavor White Chocolate pound cake with strawberry filling

    6. Wedding Colors Red white and black

    7. How was the weather? It was cloudy and VERY windy. We almost had to move inside last minute because there was a bad storm system coming but we got lucky and the system barely missed us and the sun came out just long enough for the ceremony Smile It actually didn't end up raining until almost right when the entire wedding was over

    8. Favorite vendor to work with? Our photographer was amazing! I was actually not expecting our pictures to be as beautiful as they were because we were on a tight budget and used a family friend but she was amazing and so helpful with everything

    9. Least favorite vendor to work with? Ugh our florist hands down. He was such a jerk. He did not give me the bouquet I requested and the boutennieres (sp?) looked terrible. My mother was so mortified with the flowers that she called and complained while we were on our honeymoon and he told her "You can't have champagne on a hot dog budget". I was so p!ssed when I got home and heard that. Whats sad is we even offered to pay him more for more flowers but he said for what I requested he could fit it in my budget and that he just wants to make the bride happy and its not about the money Indifferent

    10. Favorite wedding memory There were so many great memories, Im not even sure which one to pick lol

    11. What detail would you change about your wedding? The fact that we served cake right after dinner. I would have waited longer because it seemed that shortly after the cake was cut everyone started leaving

    12. Favorite wedding item (i.e., cake topper, centerpieces, bouquet, etc) Does the cake count? The cake was AMAZING.. it was so good that I ended up eating the entire top tier when we got back from our honeymoon, I think I am going to get another mini cake made by our bakery for our anniversary

    13. Last dance song? We didnt have one.. we were supposed to but we were so tired and ready to go home that we just decided to go ahead and head home instead, I'm glad we did though because we at least got a little rest before we left for the honeymoon

    14. Where did you honeymoon? We did a 7 day Royal Caribbean Cruise to the bahamas, St Thomas and St Martin. I had a dream about our honeymoon last night and now I am dying to go back

    15. Favorite part of your honeymoon The four wheeler tour that ended up just being H and I and the tour guide. We got the most breath taking tour of St. Martin

    16. Least favorite part of your honeymoon When we docked in at the Bahamas and we had to immediately leave due to bad weather Sad

    17. How are you spending your wedding anniversary? I think we are going to take a 1-2 day trip over to Jacksonville and eat at the cheesecake factory and do a little shopping and just relax

    St. Paul Lutheran Church, Blue Hill, NE / Hastings City Auditorium, Hastings, NE

    Five on each side, then three flower girls (my nieces) and one ring bearer

    4. First Dance song
    Wonderful Tonight - Eric Clapton

    5. Cake flavor
    Bridal White & Chocolate (both with buttercream)

    6. Wedding Colors
    Black, champagne and ivory

    7. How was the weather?
    It was BEAUTIFUL! Like mid 70s and sunny, but a bit windy.

    8. Favorite vendor to work with?
    They were mostly all great. The caterer was awesome, so was the decorations lady (she went above and beyond my expectations). Oh, and my baker was amazing! She completely floored us with the groom's cake!

    9. Least favorite vendor to work with?
    For the most part, everyone was awesome. I was a little ticked at our DJ because Jeff and I had another song that was very important for us to dance to (Nothing Else Matters, Metallica), and he was supposed to make sure we were both around when he played it. He didn't, and we missed dancing to it together because Jeff was outside with some family, and we didn't find him in time. I am still pissed about it.

    10. Favorite wedding memory
    Well, getting ready was great with all of my girls at the salon and my nieces. But I have to admit it is a tie between the Anniversary Dance and when Jeff went up for my garder and pulled out granny panties he had stuffed in his coat pocket. I had no idea, and it was hilarious!!!

    11. What detail would you change about your wedding?
    A couple - my hair - she did exactly how I wanted, but I just didn't like it looking back; my make-up - I wish I would have got with different eye make-up; I wish I would have gotten a picture with my cousins (first time all five of us had been together at once since I was six) and a picture with my grandpa.

    12. Favorite wedding item (i.e., cake topper, centerpieces, bouquet, etc)
    Wow - Reception Decorations/Cake/Groom's Cake/My Dress...I could go on and on...

    13. Last dance song?
    We Gotta Get Out of This Place - Animals; My parents used to listen to that when they were young about getting out of my dad's hometown. : )

    14. Where did you honeymoon?
    Colorado Springs

    15. Favorite part of your honeymoon
    The food at this one steakhouse, winning $500 at the casino, and the cave tour we went on

    16. Least favorite part of your honeymoon
    The fog - It kept us from doing anything the last day we were there, and made for some scary travels when we were leaving.

    17. How are you spending your wedding anniversary?
    Well, Friday night (ann is Sunday) we are going to a super nice restaurant about an hour away, then that weekend I have volleyball tournaments both Saturday and Sunday (oops). I ordered a photobook off of Shutterfly since I finally got around to doing it Friday, so we will look at that as it is supposed to get here by that Friday at the latest, watch the video and eat our cake. : )

  • Terrific, post Amanda!!

    1. Wedding Date - 4/24/10

    2. Wedding Location - Ceremony & Reception - Antrim 1844 Country House Inn, Taneytown, MD

    3. How big was your bridal party if you had one? - I had 3 BMs and a flower girl, and H had 4 GM, so, 8 in all (not including us!)

    4. First Dance song - "You're The One" - Shane MacGowan & the Popes (feat. Maire Brennan)...ahh...just thinking about that song :-)

    5. Cake flavor - Here we go: Red velvet w/ a bourbon cream cheese icing, chocolate w/ coconut icing, lemon w/ raspberry/sherry filling and lemon buttercreme icing , Italian cream cake w/ italian cream filling and buttercreme icing and finally, heath chocolate candy bar cake w/ chocolate icing (groom's cake!)

    6. Wedding Colors - champagne, pale gold and cream for decor, bridesmaids wore red gowns

    7. How was the weather? - Ah, the weather. One of these days I'll stop b*tching about how beautiful, warm and sunny it was right up until about an hour before the ceremony - after that, gray, drizzly and a little chilly. But at least the drizzles did stop :-)

    8. Favorite vendor to work with? - My seamstress - she was awesome, and was so excited about my dress that she made me even more excited about it...even though I know she'd worked on/made hundreds of them!

    9. Least favorite vendor to work with? - Our onsite coordinator. He was new, clearly out of his element and ended up dropping a couple of balls...I ended up taking care of details that should have been handled by him the closer we got to the wedding. He didn't last long at the venue (not even a month after our wedding), but I didn't care to be a guinea pig.

    But all ended well, and things still went off pretty much as planned without any major hitches ;-)

    10. Favorite wedding memory - A few (sorry!): Standing at the altar with H - he got far more emotional than I thought he would...the time spent together with my Mom shopping and preparing for the wedding. We attended to almost every detail together, and I'll always cherish those memories...and finally, just the love and joy on everyone's face at the ceremony and during the reception!

    11. What detail would you change about your wedding? In a perfect world, I would say nothing. But seriously? I would definitely have hired an outside coordinator in addition to the one at the site. The previous site coordinator (who was simply a legend, and fabulous!!!) was amazing. And because of him, I didn't hire an outside coordinator - didn't need to.

    But then he left, the contract was already signed and his replacement was just "so so" (see earlier answer). In hindsight I would have followed my gut and hired an outside coordinator the minute I found out that K was leaving, instead of letting myself be convinced that the new guy would get it together "once he got his bearings"...he never did.

    12. Favorite wedding item (i.e., cake topper, centerpieces, bouquet, etc) - Hmmm...the candlelit centerpieces/florals, and oh yes - my gown and my "choos!"

    13. Last dance song? - "Last Dance" by Donna Summer

    14. Where did you honeymoon? - Duck/Corolla, NC

    15. Favorite part of your honeymoon - Being able to decompress from it all with H, and the feeling of really being married :-)

    16. Least favorite part of your honeymoon - Too short - hands down!

    17. How are you spending your wedding anniversary? - We are spending a week in Savannah, GA at an historic B&B in the historic district...and there is a great beach nearby...almost time!!
