From the Bride: “My husband and I met while attending Kutztown University of Pennsylvania. We met through mutual friends but did not begin dating until a year after initially meeting. I was sitting in a geography class and in walked David. He came and sat down beside me and we spent the first part of class catching up and chatting. David and I made the decision to share a book and study together. Little did we know, we became study buddies with our future spouses.”

“David and I decided to move in together and signed a lease on our first apartment in West Chester. It was in this apartment that the most unforgettable proposal happened.

The weekend before the proposal, David and I traveled to my hometown to visit my parents. Little did I know, David packed the ring and took time to show my parents and to ask permission to marry me. The day of the proposal, my car was broken in to, I was late for work, and it was one of those days where nothing was going right. I spent the day sulking, and filing reports for my car break in and in typical dramatic fashion, claimed that this was the worst day ever. That night David dropped to one knee in the middle of our kitchen and pulled out the ring and turned the “worst day ever”, into one of the best days of my life. It was emotional, surprising, and absolutely perfect in every way. We celebrated with champagne and dinner at one of our favorite spots in West Chester.”

“Hands down, the best memory of our wedding day was the walk down the aisle. It sounds cliche, but it is the truth! David surprised me with a string trio, to play the bridal party and myself down the aisle. Hearing Cannon in D played live, with my father beside me, walking to the love of my life. There are no words to describe that feeling. It all happened so fast, but it is something that I will never forget.”

“I absolutely loved the wedding planning process. David was great at letting me run with my ideas. We still joke that I did all of the planning and he just needed to know when to show up. I like to argue that though! We toured so many places and interviewed several vendors. Ultimately, we chose who we were most comfortable with. We had a year and a half to plan the wedding so we had plenty of time. Once we took care of the big items ( venue, DJ, florist) we were able to put our personality into the smaller details of the wedding. Our venue provided a coordinator which helped alleviate so much stress by keeping us on track and helping us in any way that we needed. We included our families in the process of venue tours and tastings because we really value their opinions. It was so nice to get the families together for these events so that they could get to know each other even more.”

 “We have one HUGE piece of advice to couples planning their big day. Even when things don’t go as planned, make the most of it. It poured down rain on our wedding day and we had to move our outdoor ceremony inside and change up several parts of our day. We could have easily let the rain put a damper on our day, but the ceremony inside was just as beautiful and some of our photos in the rain became our favorite photographs. Always remember the meaning behind the day itself, and your day will be perfect no matter the circumstance.”
