Elizabeth & Tom


The Big Question

Every year around the holidays, our hometown (Baltimore, MD) honours the Christmas movie Miracle on 34th Street by decorating Baltimore’s own 34th street in Christmas lights. And when I say “decorate,” I mean every inch of the street, from sidewalk to rooftop, is covered in lights and decorations. It’s a little cheesy but I’ve always loved it. So, when Tom suggested we go see the lights the week before Christmas, I gladly accepted.

After a nice dinner at one of our favourite restaurants, we strolled down to 34th street to admire the lights. I turned around and he was on one knee! It was really lovely, but that wasn’t the end of it. After calling our families, we went to get a celebratory drink, and when I walk into the pub I see that he’s invited all our closest family members and friends to celebrate! It was such a happy, wonderful day.


Shop 'Til You Drop


I went to two shops with my mom and sister and must have tried on about 20 dresses. Like many brides, I came in with a very specific idea of what I wanted, and after trying on numerous versions of that style, realised that it didn’t really suit me.

I was just beginning to think that we might have to call it quits for the day, when I tried this one on. I still had 3 more in the dressing room, and didn’t even bother with them, because this one was just so perfect for me. 

The Perfect Day


I was a ball of nerves all morning, but my bridesmaids were a great source of comfort. I’m so glad we decided to do some 'first look' photos before the ceremony, because once I got to see Tom and how happy he looked, all my anxiety went away. After that, the day completely flew by – they mean it when they say it goes quickly! Our day was full of amazing dancing, hilarious toasts, and most importantly, all our favourite people.


Wise Words

If you can, go on your honeymoon right after the wedding, rather than waiting for a more convenient time. Putting your best friend above your other responsibilities is not only a great way to start your life together, but also gives you a little time to relax and reboot after the stress of planning for months!
