After being engaged for two years and together for six, our wedding could not have come soon enough! And though it came and went in the blink of an eye, the day holds many unforgettable memories since it was filled with laughter and a large amount of love from family and friends.
The ceremony was held at my childhood church, Blessed Sacrament, right up the street from my parents’ home. As the ceremony time drew near, the bridesmaids and I strolled to the church, laughing, and enjoying my last moments as a “Miss.” After the ceremony, our limo arrived and took us to The Bluffside Bar, my parent’s establishment, where family and friends gathered to toast the new “Mr. & Mrs. Berg.” Here, a close family friend gave us a wonderful surprise by playing the bagpipes.
The reception was held at the Cargill Room at The Waterfront. One of our favorite parts was when I, Alex, and our parents were able to peek at the room without anyone else present. We will never forget that moment. We realized how lucky and blessed we are to have one another and have such a beautiful day spent with our loved ones. Together, Alex and I welcomed guests on the patio as the sun set on the beautiful Mississippi. The day was filled with treasured speeches, a popular photo booth, a slideshow of Alex and I growing up, a delicious plated dinner, and a dance floor that was never empty.
Every detail that Alex and I wanted for our wedding was covered by our wonderful wedding planner, Nancy Flottmeyer of Weddings by Nancy, and captured by our amazing photographer, Diane Knothe of Apropos Photography. From the gorgeous assorted peonies and stunningly bright flowers on every table to hundreds of candles throughout the reception hall, the night was completely unforgettable and felt like a dream. TWM
