The Couple: Alisha and Sean Werner
Wedding Date: August 20, 2011
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Sean and I met through my sister, Amanda — they were friends in college. Amanda asked her friends not to flirt with me during the times I came to visit, needless to say Sean never really listened to her. After a couple of years, I started at the same college and we started a friendship of our own — it quickly blossomed into something more.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Finally being able to call each other husband and wife! To exchange the vows that we wrote together is one of my more powerful memories from the day. Exchanging promises of unconditional love and to spend of our lives together in front of our loved ones was such a magical moment.
What else would you like to share about your big day? All of the vendors that we used were so wonderful and helpful. It really pays off to work with people who were so sweet and excited to help you achieve your vision.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Try and take care of the small details and little decisions, because waiting until two weeks before the big day will make make them harder and larger. Also there is always something that will go a little wrong the day of, just remember it doesn’t matter and no one will notice that it’s missing…just soak in all of the joy and love!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Nope, nothing! Like I said before, everyone I worked with was out of this world — I couldn’t be happier with how everything turned out. I married my best friend…that’s all I wanted anyway.
