Eyes on the Bride: Annie M.

This next bride is a very good friend of TWB. Annie and I have been friends since 6th grade (luckily photos from that era are not digital/not easily shared on this blog...phew) and I'm so excited to see her become a married lady on Friday. Annie took the time during an airport delay in the midst of her Vegas bachelorette weekend (another thing that most definitely will NOT be posted here...) to share the following details with us.

(personal photo...actually taken at my own wedding in May, ha)

Bride's Name, Age, Occupation -- Annie Matthews, 28, Physical Therapist

Groom's Name, Age, Occupation -- Matthew Nardi, 28, Police Officer

City of Residence -- Stammy Stam! (translation: Stamford, Connecticut)

Wedding Location -- Surf Club in New Rochelle, NY

How you met -- In marching band in high dorks! Haha.

How long you've dated -- Started dating junior year of high school and took a few breaks in college...but almost 12 years.

How he proposed -- On my 27th birthday at a romantic dinner in CT after flying on the trapeze in NYC.

Wedding colors/theme -- Theme: romantic elegance. Colors: Eggplant and champagne.

Bridesmaids' dresses info -- Eggplant colored, strapless chiffon gowns by Jasmine.

Best part of planning -- Planning a big party for all our family and friends to celebrate the fact that we made it from high school!

Worst part of planning -- The hardest thing when planning such a big wedding is trying to make sure everyone is happy with the final product while also making sure it represents us as a couple.

Most surprising part of planning -- How helpful and involved Matt is! He has made a lot of the planning decisions including favors and flowers!

Favorite vendor so far -- Our florist, Artie D'Alessio from Creative Concepts at the Surf Club. He is so down to earth and made choosing floral arrangements easy!

Places you registered -- Bed Bath & Beyond, Macy's, and Crate and Barrel

Any Do-It-Yourself (DIY) plans -- We made homemade wine for our wedding favors and bottled it ourselves.

Honeymoon Location -- Maui and Oahu.

I can't wait to have all the festivities begin...or to get my hands on those favors.
Thanks again for stopping by, Annie!
