Q&A: Melody + Michael

My beautiful bride Melody (whose wedding you can read about HERE or see as a Style Me Pretty cover feature HERE) recently took time to answer my post-wedding questionnaire, which not only helps me with bettering my wedding planning skills, but also offers some insight to engaged couples everywhere! Here's what she and her husband Michael had to say!

What was the best part of your wedding day? 
I was completely in love with the day from start to finish up at the Chateau! The scenery was breathtaking and every element of the picturesque day was magical!

What was unexpected that you loved? 
Being in the spotlight during our "first dance song blunder" and my dear friend stepping in to sing her beautiful rendition of "At Last" which saved the day!

What (if anything) would you change? 
I wish there was more time... the night could have gone on forever, I was on a cloud!

How did you feel after the wedding? 
I was in the clouds for days... maybe I still am a little. The day and on into the night gave me chills... and giant, orange, glowing full moon was a definite bonus!

What is your #1 tip to future brides and grooms? 
Enjoy the ride, enjoy every single minute of the planning, do it together, and don't sweat the small stuff!

What do you feel made your wedding different or unique? 
The gorgeous winery, the intimate setting with limited guests, the location was away from everything... felt like our own private island!

What part of my service was the most important to you? 
Organization, Timeline, Budget, Vendor advice, What-Where-When-How

What part of my service was the least important to you? 
I didn’t care how we communicated, just mattered to me that we did… and often. It was helpful to me that you stayed connected

How would you rate my services? 
Excellent ☺ You were AWESOME!! I know you spent a lot of your time and energy in helping us create an amazing day, and it was well worth it! I could not have done it with out you!!!

Anything else you'd like to say? 
Krista helped us every step of the way in planning our dream wedding! She went above and beyond the call of duty with meetings, going to bat for us with our vendors, and keeping us on point! She is very professional and compassionate and she showed that she truly cared about us and the most special day in our lives! We thank her so much for helping us create such an amazing day!
