The Couple: Lonna Bullock & Sean Otis
Wedding Date: Nov 8, 2009
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Sean & I met in the 2nd grade. Later in college it was a surprise to run into him and we started dating soon after. I was raised in a wonderful loving Christian home and so when I saw Sean I could tell he was a great guy! And of course it helped that my mom & dad loved him!! As our relationship progressed I saw and experienced the steady love grow between us. This last year my mom suddenly passed away and I was able to experience the unwavering love and support that this man offered. I knew I could trust him with my life and love forever!
What was the most amazing part of your day? Walking down the aisle with my dad was so very special. Marrying the love of my life was incredible and the smiles and joy was apparent for all to see!! Having our amazing families and friends there made the day complete.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Our wedding planner, Alissa was absolutely awesome. Since we had planned together and created a timeline of events I knew I didn’t have to worry about a thing.
Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Try not to stress. 🙂 I know there are so many details to organize but the biggest thing that helped me the most was to be organized. My husband will testify that I basically carried around a binder with the ideas and information each time I met with a new vendor and compared prices and color options. Pictures of what you want it to look like really helped me when I met with the florist and planner etc.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Time flew by so quickly. I would have tried to chat more with each table of guests thanking them for coming but with 200 people in attendance it was a time challenge.
