Denise and Steven's Wedding

Big

We were married the first Saturday in November 2008 and it was just the perfect day. Gorgeous weather- our photos were all taken outside. Since the day before our wedding was Halloween, we decided to forgo the traditional rehearsal and dinner. We just had a nice in-home dinner for our out-of-town guests and family. Great relaxing evening!
As far as the wedding party and attire goes, we had a man of honour (instead of a maid of honour)2 ushers and a best man. The tuxes came from Mens' Wearhouse on Rockwood Drive, across Sterling from the back of Northwoods' Mall.
My wedding dress was an Alfred Angelo off the shoulder sequin/embroidery design from Country Bride. I highly recommend them.

I had so much fun with them! NO appointments needed (except for the fittings) and very personal attention. They are totally honest with you about what looks best and flatters your shape. And they have the best sale racks in town!

Neisha Bohler at Kroger's on Lake Street made our cake. It was a 1/2 sheet white cake, a 12" square marble cake, and a 9" square chocolate cake. Yum! I got 9 yards of NON-wired ribbon at Hobby Lobby for the bottom edge of each tier. The florist did all the other decorating.

Katie at Pottstown (Metro Center location) did a great job with the food- it was all delicious. My guests are still asking me "who was your caterer?"

I made all of our wedding stationery online. Very easy website to use, and super-helpful information online or with a live person! Saved a TON of money.

I got my bracelet and earrings at the Bergner's at Grand Prairie. Looked great- and under $30.00!!! My hair combs were a matching set from Country Bride, and cost under $30.00 also (total) My shoes were also from Country Bride. I also highly recommend Four Seasons (on Brandywine Drive) for SPANX- Your new best friend!

Great old brick church on a brick lined street! The minister is very friendly and just a super guy. All the people are very easy to work with. The sanctuary is beautiful- I didn't even need any flowers outside of my bouquet and the wedding party flowers.
