REAL WEDDING - Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass {05.06.17}

July 7 | 2017

It is Flashback Friday, which means it is time to reminisce! May 6th, 2017 was the perfect spring day. It was also the day Blake and Ali became Mr. and Mrs. Snodgrass. Here are details from their special day at Wilderness Ridge.

{At First Sight} “Blake and I met through a mutual friend. I worked with him at Madonna and it just so happened to be Blake's best friend. We all hung out one night and that was the start of our forever.”

{The Proposal} “Blake proposed when we went to Mexico. I had no idea that he would do it because he always said he wouldn't propose when it was expected. I thought that Mexico was expected. He asked me if I wanted to go get a drink before we ate dinner with our friends. We walked all over the resort until our friends came down and snuck up behind us so they could record him proposing.”

{Why Wilderness Ridge} “We chose Wilderness Ridge because it is so beautiful and it fit our guest list. We liked the fact that we could get married and have the reception in the same place. It makes it easier on our guests so they didn't have to go from one place to another. It was so easy working with Jordyn to figure out every little detail. Weddings are stressful but we felt like Wilderness Ridge really knows what they are doing and helped make it simple.”

{Detailed Décor} “There really wasn't a theme to our decorations except for the colors. We had Stem Gallery decorate for us. We met with Conrad and told him what we were kind of looking for and he just went with it. He showed us some of their decorations and then he did all the setting up so we didn't have to worry about that either. The centerpieces were beautiful and we loved all of his work.”

{Memorable Moment} “Every moment was perfect but my favorite would have to be our first look. Blake and I always talked about it before the wedding and how we couldn't wait to see each other. It was really hard to not tell him what my dress looked like or any of the details!”

{First Look} “Our first look was on the golf course. Our videographer and photographer were the only ones with us when we saw each other for the first time. They took Blake out first and had him standing looking away from the direction I was coming in. They took us out on the golf carts. It was so nerve wrecking! I was so nervous and excited for him to see me. I touched his shoulder and he turned around and looked at me, we both lost it! At that moment, I think it finally hit me that we were getting married today! It was perfect!”

{Honeymooners} “We went on our honeymoon the Tuesday after the wedding. We went to Punta Cana, in the Dominican Republic. We stayed for a whole week and did nothing but relax and lay on the beach!”

{Something Borrowed} “I wore my Aunt Sam's pearl bracelet for my something borrowed. My dress and earrings were my something new. For something old, I wore my grandmother’s wedding ring and had our pastor read the scripture out of the bible that my grandpa gave my grandma on her wedding day over 50 years ago. My wedding ring is Vera Wang so there are 2 blue sapphires on each side of the diamond in the middle. There was also a blue ribbon on the slip of my dress that represented something blue.”
