THEIR SPECIAL DAY
Alex and Tyler got married at the Talamore Country Club in Ambler, Pennsylvania. The bride and her bridesmaid got ready at the Staybridge Suites with hair done by Garro Galm. Her groom and groomsmen got ready at the venue. The bride and groom chose to have a small wedding party with only their closest friends and siblings wearing light pink bridesmaids dresses and navy blue groomsmen suits.
Their ceremony took place in the back patio of the Talamore Country Club surrounded by summer warmth and whimsical greenery. Alex and Tyler wanted something unique and special for their wedding so they decided to have a butterfly release ceremony in honor of Alex’s late mother and rebirth of all things beautiful.
During reception family and friends danced the night. The party, not only took place in the ballroom but also in the adjacent room where the photo booth was set up. Selfie Sensations photo booth was a big hit at at Alex and Tyler’s wedding! After everyone enjoyed dessert by Weinrich’s Bakery, they all gathered at the front door for a magical and romantic sparkler exit.
WHAT WAS THE MOST FUN PART ABOUT PLANNING THE WEDDING?
“The most fun part was the food, cake tasting, and trying on my dress. We are foodies, so that explains that part and trying on dresses is so fun, figuring out what really speaks to your personality, something that is an outward expression of who you are. That is so special!”
WHAT IS YOUR MOST MEMORABLE PART OF YOUR WEDDING DAY?
“The most memorable moment from the wedding day… There were a couple!
- Our first look, I loved that it was private between us,
- The butterfly release because that really connected me to my mom and Tyler,
- Our first dance, Tennessee Whiskey is the song we dance to in our kitchen ALL the time, so that was really special.”
WHAT IS TYLER’S (the groom’s) MOST MEMORABLE PART OF THE DAY?
“I’d say seeing my beautiful bride for the first time.”
WHAT WAS THE HARDEST PART ABOUT WEDDNG PLANNING ?
“The hardest thing about planning the wedding was by far the seating chart. That drove me insane. Trying to figure out where to sit everyone with the layout of the room and making sure no one was “left out” or sitting next to someone they were not comfortable with. I’d also say, putting your foot down with what YOU want and what YOU are envisioning – not allowing people to take over and push what they want onto you. The thoughts are appreciated, but ultimately, it’s your special day and you have to be happy with everything.”
IF YOU CAN DO IT ALL OVER AGAIN, WOULD YOU DO ANYTHING DIFFERENTLY
“I would probably let go a little more. I did my best to take everything in, but I was also nervous about things going right, and eyes on me. I think I’d definitely drink a little more and just let go of trying to control things. It goes by so fast, I’d just want to live it up more.”
CAN YOU PASS ON A PIECE OF ADVICE TO COUPLES PLANNING THEIR WEDDING?
“Just enjoy the process, the whole process of planning and the wedding. It truly goes by in a blink of an eye. You want to savor the love and happiness that you share. Just realize that if things go wrong, no one else notices but you, and at that point it’s already out of your control. Others are there to have a good time and celebrate you, so you deserve to do the same for yourself.
“The day is about your love and the rest of your lives together. It’s not about all the material things, or getting a ring, or a dress or even planning the wedding. That is all great but the reason why you have such a big celebration is because it sends you off to the rest of your life together.
“You make vows to one another, don’t forget them, take them seriously because times will get tough but those are the times that test the strength of your relationship. It is so easy to love others when they are being wonderful, but the true test is to love them when they aren’t being so wonderful – when they are the hardest to love. “For richer, or poorer, in sickness and in health, for better or worse”. These are things we shouldn’t take lightly.
“Honor each other every chance you get, no one is perfect and you will make mistakes but it’s how you choose to rise above all that, that counts. I heard this quote that said “Marriage isn’t about two people giving 50% – 50% it’s about each person giving 100%, always! Love isn’t about having a feeling, it’s about commitment and choosing each other every day. With family, you may not always like each other, but you ALWAYS love each other, and when you get married, you are officially family. Just focus on always strengthening your relationship, making each other better people and being better for one another and you can’t go wrong.”
