Our Wedding Day: Details

When it came time to actually start making decisions about decor, styling, aesthetics, and all things wedding, I had a pretty clear vision of what I wanted. My desire was for the day to feel special and wedding-like, but also comfortable and fun. Being that it was hosted at our family home, I didn’t want it to feel too backyard barbeque-ish, but also wanted it to remain true to who Mike and I are, if that makes sense. I wanted it beautiful, clean, and elegant. I knew I wanted to keep the color palette really neutral – lots of greenery, white floral everywhere, and natural wood. Being that the wedding was outside, I wanted the styling to flow with the setting. We added elements, like a vintage furniture, to create areas where guests could feel comfortable to relax and enjoy the evening. The gorgeous sailcloth tent created this grand space for us to enjoy our dinner and not feel like we were in our backyard. Instead of installing an insanely expensive dance floor, we added cafe lights above our patio and called it a day! Side note: once you transform a patio into a dance floor, prepare to always want to dance when you’re on it 😉
I was surprisingly very decisive with everything – I knew exactly what I wanted and the feeling I was going for. Lucky for me, the team we worked with basically got inside my brain and made it all happen. In fact, they made it look even better than I imagined. They did an incredible job with everything. They turned our family home into a magical wedding venue for the day and I couldn’t have been happier with every single detail. From the rose gold (!!!) flatware, to the beautiful greenery that lined our aisle for the ceremony, every element came together to create our dream day. 
If you’re curious, when we first started planning, I put together this Pinterest board as my vision board.

I would like to share my experience with you guys on how I got a loan of $185,000.00 USD to clear my bank draft and start up a new business. It all started when i lost my home and belongings due to the bank draft I took to offset some bills and some personal needs. I became so desperate and began to seek for funds at all means. Luckily for me I heard a colleague of mine talking about this company, I got interested although i was scared of being scammed, I was compelled by my situation and had no choice than to seek advise from my friend regarding this very company and was given their contact number, getting intouch with them really made me skeptical due to my past experience with online lenders, little did i know this very Company "PROGRESSIVE LOAN INC. was a godsent to me and my family and the entire Internet World, this company has been of great help to me and some of my colleague and today am a proud owner of well organized business and responsibilities are well handled all thanks to Josef Lewis of (progresiveloan@yahoo.com).. So if really you are genuinely in need of a loan either to expand or start up your own business or in any form of financial difficulty, i advise you give Mr Josef Lewis of Progressive loan the opportunity of financial upliftment in your life Email: progresiveloan@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +1(603) 786-7565 and not fall victim of online scam in the name of getting a loan. thanks
