{Real Bride Series} Erica

This time around our Babydoll Weddings real bride is Erica! This was such a fun and beautiful group! We enjoyed every minute helping them with this special day. See what gorgeous touches Erica put together for her big day.

 
 What were your wedding colors?
Eggplant and line green. Since I didn’t want our bridal party to have a Mardi Gras theme, the groom and groomsman had custom Nike Shoes in lime green 🙂 

 
 How many bridesmaids did you have?
I had a total of 5 bridesmaids.

Where did you find your dress? Was finding the dress a difficult process or relatively easy?  
I found my dress at Suzanne’s Bridal in Gilbert. Finding my dress was relatively easy process due to all the hours of  “Say Yes To The Dress” and wonderful consultants at Suzanne’s Bridal.Also, along with the help of my mom and bridesmaids.

 
Where did your ceremony and reception take place?Was there any meaning to the choice of venue(s)?
We chose to have our ceremony and reception at the Secret Garden. After touring 16 other venues, we walked through the Secret Garden property and saw the beautiful lawn,bridal suit and reception pavilion, we knew it was perfect for our big day! 

What flowers did you choose for your bouquet along with boutonnieres?
The center pieces for the reception were simple and left tot he florist because I was struggling with a vision of what I was wanting and she did and incredible job! 

What were the flavors of your cake?
We had a three-tier cake so the top and bottom layers were red velvet with cream cheese frosting and the middle layer was chocolate cake with dark chocolate frosting! YUM! 

Did you provide favors to your guests? If so, what were they, and what was the meaning behind them? 
Since we had a sparkler exit, we provided match boxes that said “Perfect Match, Erica & David 1.12.14” as a small keepsake. We chose the matches to compliment our sparklers and many of our guests collect matches from wherever they travel. We also had Lifesaver mints with a sticker on them that said “Mint to Be, Erica and David”. Just something cute 🙂 

Is there any detail you had at your wedding that makes it unique? (alternative guestbook, charitable donations,  handmade decore, ect.)
Since David and I have been together almost 8 years before we were married, choosing  a few photos throughout our years together to serve as a guestbook so that after the wedding we could display it in our home. Also, instead of the typical sand or unity candle ceremony, David and I chose to have a hand-fasting ceremony. Hand-fasting is how the phrase “tying the knot” came to be and we loved the significance it held for us. 

What was your first pick for “first dance” with your husband? Is there meaning to the song selection? 
Our first dance song was Snow Patrol- “Chasing Cars”. Since we began dating in high school (high school sweeties), this was always “our song” throughout our relationship.Whenever we hear the song (even still)  we smile 🙂 . 

Any favorite moments that standout in the day? We know the obvious is marrying your husband 🙂 .
There were many comical moments during our wedding. The first was after my dad walked me down the aisle and was about to hand me off to David, my dad lifted my blusher but not enough to keep it with the veil and it fell back in front of my face (great comic relief in a nervous time). Second, during the garter toss, I remember thinking “Why is he taking so long for him to grab the garter with his teeth?” He emerged from under my dress with a large pair of lime green underwear! Busting up laughing, he later told me that he had the underwear in his suit jacket pocket the entire day! Lastly, as we are cutting the cake and attempting to serve our piece so we can feed each other, server handing busted! We had to grab the sliver of cake with our hands. Hilarious!
 
Did you take a honeymoon? If so where did you go? 
We left for our honeymoon early the next morning and we were lucky enough to go to Turks and Caicos! Gorgeous turquoise waters and white sand beaches! 

What is one piece of advice you will leave for future brides?
Live in the moment! The planning process is stressful and the smallest detail seems extremely important yet on the big day, its chaotic and goes extremely fast so take it all in!

Please list and venders you wish to mention.
Big thanks to The Secrete Garden, Sharfo’s Catering, Santa Barbara Bartending, Fred’s Flowers, Suzanne’s Bridal Boutique, Ryan Topping Photography, Ingram Entertainment and Gold Star Executive Transportation. Everyone played a part in our perfect day 🙂

{Real Bride Series} Meet Mandy!

Mandy and Jeff met by fate at a New Year’s Eve party… and the sparks haven’t stopped flying for these two! They were married in a joyful affair at Encanto Park Clubhouse! They mixed vibrant colors with their love of vintage Mexican elements!

How did you and your groom meet?
I met my husband at a New Year’s party over three years ago. I went to the bash with my best friend and from the moment Jeff and I met, I knew we had something special. He even gave me a New Year’s kiss!

We are dying to know, how did he propose?!
Last May, Jeff took me on a trip to California. We spent a day at Disneyland, and then went to the most magical boutique hotel in Los Angeles. He planned a trip to the Griffith Observatory where we had amazing views of the city. We found a secluded area where he with tears in his eyes asked me if I would be his wife. It was magical!

Babydoll Weddings Friendor: Celebrations by Amy Bacon!

“I have been in the events industry for just over 12 years now and have owned CBAB for four years. I never planned on running my own business but I love it! I’ve always loved a good party, even as a child. Seeing all the details and watching things come together brings me such joy. When I left corporate America, it just was a natural transition. Who knew I could be one of the lucky ones and do what I love for a career? Now I get to be involved in couplesÂą special days, from when they decide on their colors to when the final guest heads home. Every detail is important to my clients; IÂąm honored to use my skills to bring their unique visions to life. Anyone who knows me or my company knows that I treat all of my clients like family because they are! When someone signs a contract with any of the CBAB planners, they are inviting us to be a part of one of the most special days of their lives. Regardless of if itÂąs for a wedding, an anniversary party or a proposal, we donÂąt take the opportunity to be a part of these moments lightly. We make it very clear to our clients that they are important to us and will continue to be important to us after the last guest leaves and all of the confetti has fallen.



Our clients are a part of the CBAB family for life and we are blessed to be a part of their lives as well.  I have surrounded myself with some of the most talented and loving women that the Phoenix market has to offer. We all work hard when we play and are playful when we work. Whether itÂąs a Sun Devil, a glamour girl, a dog mommy or a craft beer expert, we have a little of everything on our team! As everyone who does events can tell you, in the anxious excitement before an event takes place itÂąs important to have someone who knows you well enough that they can read your mind and jump in when help is needed; thatÂąs what our team does for each other. We trust each other and can lean on one another, both at events and in real life.”






Thank you so much Amy for lovely post about you, your company and your love of making a future’s brides’ dream come true! And we love the pictures!

{Real Bride Series} Shawna

Our monthly Real Bride Series continues, and this month we are featuring a Babydoll Wedding’s past bride Shawna!

If you are looking to add some vintage flare to your wedding event, get some inspiration from Shawna’s wedding!  The vintage details shown here and mentioned by the bride herself pay homage to both sets of grand parents on each side of the family.

I present to you our March Real Bride Shawna!

What were your wedding colors? 

Black and White, with some red flare

How many bridesmaids did you have? 

6

Where did your ceremony and reception take place?
Wedding at the LDS temple in Mesa. Ring ceremony and reception at Regency Garden in Mesa.

Was there any meaning to the choice of venue(s)?  
The temple was for religious reasons. Regency Garden was close to the temple and very reasonably priced.

Where did you find your dress? 

I used my grandmother’s dress – vintage, cream, lace overlay. It only required minimal alterations. It had such sentimental meaning, was free, and fit with the vintage Americana theme.

Was finding the dress a difficult process or relatively easy? 
Pretty easy, just in my grandma’s closet.


What flowers did you choose for your bouquet and throughout the wedding? 

Red roses

What was the flavor of your cake? 

Vanilla and chocolate with cream cheese icing – Yum!

Is there a detail that you had at your wedding that makes it unique?

All 4 sets of our grandparents had long, happy marriages, our wedding had a vintage theme, so we paid homage to our grandparents by making picture frames with pictures of them courting and/or of their wedding, we also included corresponding stories. We used them as table décor.

What was your pick for “first dance” with your husband?

“A Thousand Years” by Christina Perry, we didn’t have a song, our DJ actually picked this one and now it has become our song.

Any favorite moments that stand out in the day? 

We rented a trolley to transport guests between the temple and Regency Garden, the bridal party took it out for a special photo shoot – we got some great pictures and had tons of fun!

Did you take a honeymoon? If so where did you go? 

Yes! We went to Italy for a week (Rome and Venice).

What is one piece of advice you will leave for future brides? 

Get organized – create a binder immediately with contact info of multiple vendors, timelines, etc. – you won’t believe how many business cards, fabric swatches, etc. that you’ll collect. Also, pick the things that are most important to you and make sure that they happen the way you want. Then, be flexible with everything else – not everything will go as planned, but don’t let it ruin your experience!

Our thanks to Shawna for letting us in on her wedding details! We love the vintage elements you included in your day, such a fabulous way to pay homage to your loved ones.  The trolley is also an excellent idea! Looks like everyone enjoyed your beautiful day.
