Featured in the Winter 2013 Nashville Pink Bride Magazine
LOVE STORY: Vujo and I met when we were out and about one night in Atlanta. On our first date, we talked for four hours straight, and it seemed like time had just stopped, so that’s when I knew he was “the one.” We love traveling, so when we were on one of our trips to Costa Rica, he surprised me and proposed!
WEDDING DETAILS: Since I was born and raised in Nashville, my parents wanted me to have the wedding there. However, I moved to Atlanta about 10 years ago so I was worried about how I would plan a wedding from Atlanta in 3 months! We Googled “bridal shows in Nashville” and attended the Pink Bridal Show, where we booked most of our vendors that day!
I love bright colors, so my colors were hot pink, black, and white. Whenever I told people this, they gave me a funny look. My wedding was in October, so I guess it didn’t go with the fall theme I was supposed to have?! I had my girls wear hot pink dresses and the boys wore hot pink vests and ties. 🙂 I didn’t care because the pictures turned out awesome! I even had bright blue shoes as my something blue.
I am Korean, and my husband is Croatian, so I wanted to incorporate our cultures in the wedding somehow, so we chose to have a Korean buffet for dinner and we provided Croatian brandy.
BIG DAY: Once the big day arrived, it went by so fast! I was scared how everything would turn out, but when I opened the door to walk down the aisle, everything looked perfect!
One of the most memorable moments from our big day was when we broke out in Gangnam Style right after our first dance. It was a great way to start the reception!
An unexpected thing that happened was that we had to change venues three weeks before our big day, but lucky for us, Houston Station was available because everything turned out beautiful!
The most important thing to me was that everyone would have a great time while celebrating our special day with us!
