The Wedding of Chelsea & Eli

I loved my experience at Bridal and Formal! They have a very wide range in styles and prices. It made it very easy for me to find what I was looking for in a price I could afford. It ended up being the first and only store I looked at because I didn’t need to look anywhere else. I highly recommend them.

Also, Karen was a great consultant! She did a wonderful job of offering guidance about dresses and she was very helpful throughout the overall process of picking out my dress.

On the day of the wedding, I enjoyed having my mom and 2 maids of honor help me put on my dress and accessories. I also loved the moment I entered the lodge with my dad and saw my soon-to-be husband waiting for me. His vows were cute and funny, which made the audience laugh. We also had a sword detail since he is a Marine. When we exited after being announced as husband and wife, they would cross their swords in front of us and tell us to “kiss to pass.”  During the father/daughter and mother/son dances, we asked that all fathers/daughters and mothers/sons come out to the dance floor. Since my only sibling is my sister and Eli’s siblings are all brothers. I had my sister step in with my dad as I danced with my father-in-law (since I am his first father/daughter dance), and Eli had his brothers take turns with his mom while he danced with my mom (since that’s her first mother/son dance).
