We are back with another fun edition of TWD’s Bride of the Month!  This month we are featuring Felicia.  Though it was one of the hottest days in June, Felicia rocked it out and was such a beautiful bride!  Felicia’s dress, a classic lace trumpet silhouette with a beaded belt for just a touch of sparkle, was a great fit for her.  We loved looking through the photos of the fun-loving couple, from the first look to the reception.  We know you will enjoy them too!  Before we start, we must recognize Brooke Foorman Photography for the fantastic photos.  Now let’s get started with Felicia and Eric’s love story…

What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?

I am not usually a sentimental person and I felt 100% confident that I would not shed a tear on my wedding day.  However, when I walked down the aisle and saw all my beautiful decorations together for the first time and all the faces of my loved ones beaming at me, I broke down into tears.  It caught me by surprise and really made the day so special for me.

If you could relive your day again, what would you do differently?

I would not change a thing.  The day went as well as I hoped it would.  I got to talk to all my guests, I remembered to eat, and I tried my hardest to live in the moment.

What advice would you give to future brides?

Just know that something or some THINGS will go wrong – for example, vendors possibly running behind schedule.  However, only the bride will notice these small details.  Your guests will think your day is beautiful no matter what.  So have fun and don’t sweat the small things!
