EMILY AND BRYAN'S WEDDING

June, 2009 in Waterford

"Our wedding was amazing! Getting married in Waterford was the easiest thing for us since it was equal distance for almost everyone. Eolia Mansion is a breathtaking back drop for a wedding being right on the sound with stunning gardens. It rained all day with just enough time to get our ceremony in and some pictures outside. Until the park ranger got us off the beach because of a tornado warning. But then we got a double rainbow so it all worked out! :o)"

"We chose Cloud Nine for our catering because they were the cheapest and the nicest. (If you have a wedding at Eolia you can only chose from 6 different caterers) There were somethings that I wished were different on their end but not enough where it hurt our day at all. Just tiny things. They did our cake too. Tiramisu! SOOOO GOOD!"
