Tell us about THE dress and what inspired your look.
There are so many beautiful wedding dresses. I was looking for something a little unique and fun without going over the top. As I was trying on dresses at Lovely, I kept looking at this blush colored dress hanging on the rack. I had never considered any color other than white, but my mom, sister and I agreed that I might as well try it on. I loved it! It was colorful, whimsical, and most importantly comfortable. As I was debating between this dress and another Lovely dress, my sister pointed out that throughout my dress shopping, I had maintained a straight face thinking and pondering each dress. But when I was wearing the Watters Soledad dress I had a big smile on my face. That made my decision easy!
What was the most memorable moment?
Tim’s uncle sang a beautiful rendition of John Legend’s ‘All of Me’ during the ceremony. During these few minutes I was able to look around at the crowd and took note of Tim standing across from me and all of our family and friends together under one roof. I felt so honored and grateful that each of them took the time to travel and witness our special day.
What were the most important details to pulling off your dream wedding?
Since both Tim and I went to Penn State, the campus holds a special place in our hearts. We were able to blend my dream wedding of romance and an abundance of flowers by holding the ceremony in the H.O. Smith Botanic Gardens and his passion for sports, especially Penn State football, by holding our reception in Beaver Stadium. We incorporated some other details so our guests could share in the Penn State experience. Some of these included tailgate themed welcome bags upon arrival at the on-campus hotel, The Nittany Lion Inn, using the Blue Buses for transporting our guests (the buses that the football team uses to travel to the stadium), access to the All-Sports Museum in the stadium before cocktail hour, and a bottle of local wine from Mt. Nittany Vineyard and Winery as a wedding favor.
If you could give future brides any advice, what would it be?
Planning a wedding can feel like a balancing act at times between trying to figure out what you want while weighing the opinions of others close to you. Weddings are about love, so treat everyone with love. If you’re unsure of what to do, go with your gut and feel confident in your decision. It will be a beautiful, magical day with your loved ones. Enjoy every minute of it!
