Putting on the Ritz

Real Wedding Wednesday ~ What to Expect When You're Expecting... A Wedding

I am so completely in love with all of the glitz and glam of this beautiful wedding! Brittany, the bride, envisioned a very lovely, completely timeless and classy affair... And you know what? She pulled it off beautifully! "Putting on the Ritz" style baby! Brittany and Aubin's wedding day was on Jan 4th, and it was important for them to keep the holiday vibe going with glitter, the many shades of champagne, silver and gold, and a lot of candles to create a sexy and fun ambiance.

Seriously, how cool is it that they had two different bands? Right? The layout of the venue was such that it lent itself well to the two bands, one a jazz 1920's style band, Miss Rose and her Percolators, which played upstairs during the dinner, and Van Eps rocked it downstairs in the "speakeasy lounge".

But... I must say, although I have heard it before, I am always surprised when a bride compares the intensity of her wedding plans to the intensity of of planning for a baby... She mentions this twice! Hmmm... leads me to wonder... Following the honeymoon, does baby make three? Only Brittany can answer that one! 

Enjoy this fabulous wedding!

1. Bridey, how did you meet your spouse? (The short and sweet version please.)

I had joined a putt putt golf league, and two of my teammates worked with Aubin. We ended up meeting through those friend's gatherings.

2. How long were you together before you were engaged?

Two years... Seemed like a lifetime for some reason. 

(Right before the ceremony, Aubin had a surprise gift delivered to Brittany...)

3. What was the length of time between the engagement and the wedding?

One year... Actually, a good friend of mine pointed out that you have more time to plan for a wedding than you do for a child. Granted we weren't 'trying' to get pregnant, but it's definitely a crazy thought...
