Q&A With the Bride, Lena

1. How did you and your husband meet?

"Phil and I met at work when I started a new job in January 2014. He was on my direct team and trained me. We hit it off right away, went on our first date in February and it's history ever since!"

2. What is your favorite memory from your wedding day?

"THE ENTIRE DAY. So, so many great memories. The anticipation of getting ready to go to the church and walk down the aisle to see Phil for the first time. But overall, having all of our closest friends and families together celebrating the best day ever."

3. What was your favorite part of having a wedding planner?

"YOU SAVED MY LIFE. I would more say the day-of coordination. I thoroughly enjoyed planning the wedding but day-of coordination was a HUGE stress relief since we had so many moving parts and wanted to make sure everything went smooth."

Lena and Phil's wedding day was filled with beautiful details including nautical rope table numbers, handwritten signs on gold mirrors, and gold lanterns with pebbled gold chargers amongst the garland on farm tables. The dusty blue table clothes captured the nautical theme and contrasted well against the dark wood Chiavari chairs.
