As we started to think about different blog posts for our 2016 season, we thought it may be fun to share all of the weddings we know and love so dearly - our own!
Over the next couple of months, keep your eyes out for posts from our planners recounting their favorite parts of their day, what they would have done differently and some fun ideas they incorporated into their wedding. From Nantucket to the Cape and the Caribbean, we will share the details and things we learned while actually going through the process.
We encourage questions and comments regarding our experiences in order to better your own!
First up in April - Jamie's Nantucket wedding weekend!
Back in January the team at Cape Cod Celebrations had the opportunity to hang out with Kristen & Joe from Organic Photography for an evening of head shots! As we were updating our new site, we wanted to be able to showcase our planners with some new, fabulous new photos on our about us page.
Huge shout out to Kristen & Joe as they took time our of their weekend on a Saturday evening to shoot with us! We look forward to many other fun times ahead!
The First Dance is a magical moment between you and your new husband (or wife) sharing 4 minutes or less in the middle of all of your family and friends - no big deal! :)
Honestly though, this moment is really special. And even though you are alone on the dance floor you will find you feel like it is just the two of you in that moment together.
Have you ever wondered the history of the first dance? Back in the days of king and queens and grand balls, the guest, or guests of honor, of these extraordinary events would be the first ones to dance to open up the event and the dance floor. Since then it has become tradition at weddings all over the world. Typically the first dance happens right before dinner is served, and after any formal introductions, so that the dance floor can be opened if you so choose, and to take the pressure off of the couple for the rest of the night!
One item that couples tend to find difficult from is choosing the right song for their first dance together. Enter my new friend Jessica from MelodyWed. One of the most brilliant, amazing, loving, caring people I have met, Jessica will get to know you and your fiance and actually write your very own, personal first dance song. A song made for just the two of you, about the two of you, that you can keep forever and ever. I mean, does it get anymore brilliant than that?
"You've taken great care to personalize the visual details of your wedding: the dress, the venue, flowers, decor. Now you can put that same memorable touch on your first dance. A custom love song from MelodyWed is uniquely yours -- the lyrics and even musical style of the song reflect your one-of-a-kind relationship. Written and recorded by professional songwriters, musicians and producers, your Melody sounds like it belongs on the radio. Now you can call it "our song" and be the only couple in the world to be telling the truth. Dance to your custom love song on your wedding day, after your first big fight, in front of your children, and when you're eighty-three reminiscing the good old days. Let your Melody remind you of your love for each other and reignite your passion for years to come.
What does YOUR love sound like? I, for one, would love to find out. ;) "
- Jessica, MelodyWed
