"it. was. perfect." -k, one oak real bride

K + A = <3

8.17.18

venue location: Fountain Point Resort

describe your day in 3 words: It. Was. Perfect!

your song: Mango Tree by Zac Brown Band (ft Sara Bareilles)

moment that made you laugh: My husband loves to twirl and dip me when we dance together, so of course he pulled out all the stops during our first dance. My dad is NOT a dancer, but feeling like he couldn't be too overshadowed by his new son-in-law, went for a deep dip halfway through our dance. The photos show the fear and shock on my face! Of course it was fine, and we laughed so hard I cried the rest of our dance.

vow that made you tear up: We stuck to traditional vows, but in lieu of readings we asked Jim and Molly, who are like second parents to Adam, to send our officiant some love and words of wisdom to incorporate into the ceremony as they weren't able to travel up from Florida. Neither of us knew what they'd written until it was read, and the words were so full of love and excitement for us we both teared up (along with Adam's entire family)!

moment that made you scratch your head: More of a face palm moment, but when I walked up to the alter, hugged and kissed my parents and stood next to my groom, I reached my hand out and gave his butt a little squeeze. It is such a habit (he's tall and it is just where my hand goes naturally...) I didn't even think about 150 of our closest family and friends that were sitting right behind us!

love is never having to...: travel the world alone (unless you want to!)

advice for future brides: Find vendors that you feel comfortable putting your complete trust into! If you are very clear about your wishes and desires up front, the professionals you hire to make your day what you want it will make it happen.

any final thoughts?: Yes! I did want to say, one more time, how much I appreciate one oak. I was not excited to dress shop and had been very overwhelmed at other salons. I needed a low key environment to try on dresses so I could listen to my own heart. I loved my one on one time with annie, she was so helpful and patient and really listened to my thoughts on what I was trying on. I am so so grateful for you two and how special you make a bride feel! thank you!
