Iâ€™m back from our Atlantis wedding and WOW, it was amazing! If I had to do it again, I wouldnâ€™t change a thingâ€¦seriously, I couldnâ€™t have asked for anything better and our guests were blown away. We kept hearing comments like â€weâ€™re doing this every year right?â€ or â€œI want you to plan my daughterâ€™s weddingâ€ and â€œI canâ€™t believe you did all this.â€ Believe me, I had my ups and downs during planning but it was sooo worth it.
I have so many things to tell you, I donâ€™t know where to begin. I guess the logical place would be the actual wedding and then all the other stuff.
Venues â€“ our ceremony was on the Royal Overlook and the cocktail/reception was in Fathoms. There was a 40% chance of rain but luckily it was fine. However it was HOT, I mean really hot! I had originally worried about crying during the ceremony but the tears werenâ€™t a problem, the sweat was! I just hope it doesnâ€™t show in the pictures. Fathoms is awesome and our guests were so impressed â€“ the rustic d©cor and fish tank really made it feel like we were someplace special.
The wedding staff was really nice. Of course I had been working with our WC for months but the banquet manager only comes in that day. It all went really smoothly. A few minor glitches but nothing anyone noticed. They really keep on top things too and made sure the bride and groom were taken care of.
Matthew Sweeting â€“ everything you hear about him is true â€“ he IS the guy to marry you. He makes the ceremony personal and really makes you comfortable while standing up there. As my sister put it, he is so charismatic. It made the heat bearable.
