The Couple:  Robyn and Steve Frame
Wedding Date:  May 5, 2012
Photography by The Studio
Tell us a little about you and your beloved:  We are both members of a local volunteer organization focusing on helping and improving the lives of underprivileged children in our local communities. We met at one fundraiser and started dating at another.
What was the most amazing part of your day?  There was a Super-moon on our wedding day. The moon was bigger and brighter than a regular full moon. It was quite a sight. I asked our photographer to snap some pics and they came out spectacular. What a special treat!
What else would you like to share about your big day?  It is such an amazing feeling to see all of the most important people in your lives in the same room.

Ceremony & Reception Site, Caterer & Dessert Bar: 
Timber Creek Ballroom
Photographer:  The Studio
Cake:  A friend made us a cake for photos
Flowers:  Rosedale Florist
Favors:  We had lottery scratchers, a penny and a note that said “we are so lucky to have you in our lives.” Guests will remember this inexpensive favor, especially if someone walks away with a jackpot!
Wedding Dress:  I rented my dress from Alexandria’s in Roseville. The veil, petticoat and cleaning fee were included in the price. The best part was I got to give it back and didn’t have to find a place to store it.
Bridesmaid Dresses:  David’s Bridal
Hair & Makeup:  A friend who does hair and make up as a hobby.
Invitations:  DIY. We bought them at Michaels and printed them at home.
DJ/Entertainment/Band:  Storm Productions
Honeymoon location:  New Orleans and then a Caribbean cruise.
Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out?  Steve Siglin was our officiant and his ceremony was hilarious, our guests will never forget it.
First Dance Song:  “Whatever It Is” by Zac Brown Band. That was our first concert together and the words are beautiful.
Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now?  Borrow whatever you can. Many details of your wedding will get overlooked so why spend a fortune when you don’t have to?
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance?  I would have loved pictures with our guests at every table. It would have be a thrill to see what our guests looked like on our special day 25 years from now.
