Natalie and David tied the knot this October at Courtyard Marriott Bradenton Sarasota Riverfront in Bradenton, FL. We couldn't have been happier to be a part of their special day! Here are some details about their wedding and tips for future brides. Feel free to take some inspo from her wedding!
How did you meet your spouse?
We started as longtime acquaintances and became close friends through some extremely challenging times prior to falling in love.
How did they pop the question?
In Key West during a summer camping vacation with just the two of us at Bluewater Key.
When it came to planning your wedding, what was most important to you?
That the venue from ceremony to reception flowed well for our guests and that the ceremony was personal including the Reverend, vows and bridal party.
What was the best part of your wedding day?
Seeing my future husband for the first time as I walked up the aisle at the beginning of our ceremony.
How did hiring Stephanie Arias Event Planning help you plan your dream wedding?
Stephanie was great from our first Zoom call to the clean-up after the reception. Her experience, recommendations and attention to detail made the wedding day flow seamlessly allowing us to focus on our special day, not the details.
If you could provide a tip to another couple planning their wedding, what would it be?
Hire Stephanie so you can focus on the day! Having a planner helped us tremendously and our day was perfect; even though there were some small hiccups, we weren’t aware until told because Stephanie handled them for us! Stephanie allowed us to enjoy the moment and focus on each other not the details of executing the timeline.
Where did you say YES to the dress, and what designer did you wear?
Perfect dress in Sarasota.
When it came to your venue selection, why did you choose to get married there?
We wanted the ceremony to be outdoors and the Marriott Riverfront had a gorgeous courtyard with a beautiful fountain for our backdrop. Having the reception at the same location was extremely convenient for us and our guests and staying at the hotel made the logistics of getting ready super simple!
