Pops of pink, glittering gold, and the sweetest little furry guest around — Susan & William’s wedding is full of fun at the Carnegie Hotel! We love the fun elements like the sweet take on Baxter, the Maltese, courtesy of Cakebuds paired with such a classic, timeless reception venue. Start scrolling to enjoy this delightful day!
How did you meet?
“I am a pharmaceutical rep and called on Bill at his family practice office.”
When did you know you were falling in love?
“Quickly!! After about 2 weeks together, we knew this was it.”
What is your favorite quality in your husband?
“He is kind and soooooo funny!”
What traditions did you incorporate?
“Every member of our families played integral parts in our wedding. Having everyone in our close circle participated in such an intimate way. My grandmother that has passed gave me a broach that we pinned inside the bouquet. We wanted a true traditional wedding at Munsey Church with a fun, elegant, classy party afterwards.”
Did you have a specific theme or design inspiration for your big day?
“We wanted an intimate wedding day filled with all the people that daily play a part in our lives and story. We wanted elegant, traditional, yet modern and fun.”
How about your dress or attire?
“My dress was modern, yet I still wanted the feeling of unique and elegant. Bill wore a royal navy blue suit with a cream tie. We love the understated look while making a bold statement.”
What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?
“Ed Sheeran ‘Perfect’ because it really describes how Bill makes me feel everyday.”
What was the most memorable moment?
“The last dance to David Grays’ ‘Please Forgive Me’ with all our friends and family in a circle as we danced. We went around the circle and each person spoke words of love and laughter.”
Tell us about your grand exit!
“We left out the back stairway of the Carnegie and through a pathway full of sparklers. One of my favorite photos is the kiss running through the sparklers.”
Happily Ever After Susan & William!
