    I’m back from our Atlantis wedding and WOW, it was amazing!  If I had to do it again, I wouldn’t change a thing…seriously, I couldn’t have asked for anything better and our guests were blown away.  We kept hearing comments like ”we’re doing this every year right?” or “I want you to plan my daughter’s wedding” and “I can’t believe you did all this.”  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 don’t know where to begin.  I guess the logical place would be the actual wedding and then all the other stuff.


    Venues – 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 weren’t a problem, the sweat was!  I just hope it doesn’t show in the pictures.  Fathoms is awesome and our guests were so impressed – 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 – everything you hear about him is true – 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.

              Your wedding sounds so fabulous and your cake is so beautiful!  I think I may have to copy that =D


              Can we please PM me and let me know how much a Cabana rental is and how much the table at Aura is?


              I am thinking about doing the same.

                I'll pm you next week when I'm home. I actually don't know the final aura details since hubby took care of that. Once we get back from honeymoon we'll go over all our final numbers. In the meantime I'm loving Hawaii.

                      Hi Steph!


                      So happy that everything worked out fine!


                      We have so many of the same vendors so i'm glad to hear that they all preformed perfectly.  


                      Enjoy your honeymoon and when you get back can you also send me the prices for the cabana and aura too?




                      Forever could never be long enough for me to feel like i've had long enough with you
