Q: Why did you choose this place to get married?
“I had attended an event at the winery a couple years earlier and always thought it would be a wonderful location for a wedding. It was the only location that my husband and I looked at and we both loved it immediately! It is absolutely gorgeous and their staff is amazing. All of our guests raved about how much they loved the location and how helpful and wonderful their staff was.”
Q: What was the most memorable part of the day?
“The most memorable parts of the day for me were when I took a moment to look around and saw that the visions I had always had for the day during the planning process were coming to life right in front of me. The first was when I first arrived at the venue and saw everything set up, I actually began to tear up a little. Another was when I was dancing with guests and saw a bunch of guests standing on the balcony of the barn watching the events below them.”
Q: How did you find Azazie?
“I stumbled on Azazie through searching for dresses online. I saw several styles I loved immediately and then went to a couple wedding forums to search for reviews of other bride’s experiences.”
Q: Why did you choose Azazie for your bridesmaids?
“I wanted a very simple design for my bridesmaid’s dresses. Azazie had the best selection of classic, simple designs for affordable prices. I also liked that the bridesmaids could order either a standard or custom size as well.”
Q: Any advice for those getting married soon?
“Your wedding day will go faster than you can imagine. Many people told me that but I never knew how true it was until I was experiencing it for myself. I was glad I took the advice to take a few moments throughout the day to stop and take in everything around me. You will get pulled in so many different directions that day and it is so easy to get wrapped up in it all that you don’t ever stop to just enjoy it for a while. Also, do not go the cheap route on your wedding photography and/or videography. They really are the only things you have left when everything is said and done!”
Q: Did you enjoy planning your own wedding?
“I really did enjoy the planning process. Sure, there were times it was stressful but it was also a lot of fun! Every decision I made made me more and more excited for the day to arrive. I actually find myself a little bored and missing it now!”
Q: Describe your wedding in one word.
Q: Anything you’d like to add?
“I am so thankful for all the wonderful vendors and people we had around us helping to make this day everything we ever dreamed it would be.”
