Mariée Ami Weddings: Margaret & Eric
Please tell us a little about your story / how you meet / etc. Eric and I were set up by one of my best girlfriends from SMU and one of his best guy friends from Texas A&M, who were dating at the time and are now married. We dated on and off for three plus years before he proposed in Central Park while standing atop of the Bow Bridge. He had our matchmakers and my little sister, who lives in New York, surprise me for a fun filled weekend of celebrating.
What was your vision for your wedding? Favorite detail? Our reception was situated in tents on a sprawling lawn in the center of the town of Mooresville. I wanted a "garden party" theme to play off the beautiful setting of historic Mooresville. Blue and white are my favorite colors, so we incorporated different size and shaped blue and white ginger jars throughout with lots of hydrangeas in blue, white and pops of pink peeking out of the arrangements. We continued this theme to the wooden x-shaped bar that set at the center of the main tent. The four sided bar was adorned with blue and white lamps on each corner and large arrangement in the center underneath a crystal chandelier.
What was your favorite part of the planning? My favorite part of the planning was my mom and I working with Neillie on the design and layout of the tents and with Mary on the paper goods!
What was your most memorable part of the day? The most memorable part of the day for me was when Eric and I exchanged our vows surrounded by our family and closest friends in the tiny, quaint Old Brick Church in Mooresville. It was such a sweet moment! The runner up of best moments was entering the tent and walking through the crowd of people! I was in awe of all the faces that had made their way from all over the country to Alabama to be with us to celebrate!
