Stacey and Jason

Most Sentimental Moment

When we said our vows to each other and kissed at the end. Being able to say those words to him and seal it with a kiss was what the whole day is all about.

Favorite part with friends and family

Feeling all the love from everyone during our ceremony and then getting down on the dance floor.

Biggest surprise

We had the string quartet play the Notre Dame fight song for when our officiant who is a Notre Dame alum walked out. He and everyone else were surprised since all the other songs were very traditional and classic.

Our traditions

We are very family oriented so we wanted to include/ honor those members of our families that are no longer with us. I had a picture of my great grandma on my bouquet. She was 103 and passed away March 1st. She was there for my engagement party and when I said yes to my dress. We had my husband’s father’s favorite song by Frank Sinatra played as well as had pictures of loved ones on a remembrance table.

How we personalized it

My husband is a big cigar fan so we had a cigar bar with his favorite cigars available to our guests. We also love our dog Chloe so we had a signature drink called the Chloe (pumpkin spice sangria, I loved pumpkin spice everything). We also had a replica of her to have on our cake topper. Finally instead of a guestbook we put together a puzzle of us and our dog and had it framed with matting so everyone could sign that.

Our honeymoon

We went the Dubai and the Maldives for our honeymoon.
Dubai we went to a festival in the middle of the desert at night
In the Maldives we stayed in an over water hut and got to go snorkeling in the crystal clear water right off the deck of our hut.

Best part of the planning process

I really enjoyed coming up with my vision and then working with each different vendor to make that vision become reality.

What’s next for us

We just recently moved into our new house that we had built while planning the wedding. We get to host Christmas Day for the first time and are looking forward to creating many memories as husband and wife.
