The Couple: Jill and Brian
The Wedding: 7.30.11 – The Sagamore Resort , Lake George, NY
What three adjectives best describe your New York wedding? Preppy, Crisp/Tailored, Whimsical-chic
What inspired your personal wedding style, and how did you incorporate your style and personalities into your big day? My hubby is all about preppy, Vineyard Vines style attire and aesthetic. I come from a more Anthropologie-type persuasion. Our location was selected based on our shared love of nature, the colors were derivations of our two favorites, and the stylistic features grew out of a blended approach to preppy-boho chic!
Looking back, what are the moments, decisions or memories that you love the most about your wedding? Brian and I took five minutes, once every hour to step away from everyone and take in the whole experience. This was inspired by the line from the movie Ferris Buellers Day Off, when Ferris says, Life moves pretty fast. If you dont stop and look around once in a while…you could miss it. Remember to take a minute with your partner-in-crime to stop and enjoy one another, the scene, the guests at your party enjoying themselves, etc. It all goes by so fast, and these brief moments make all the difference!
