Robin and Jason Merrill Wedding
July 9th, 2013
Robin and Jason's wedding was one of those weddings that truly did not seem like work. I have known Robin for YEARS. She actually use to date my brother before she met and fell in love with Jason. I can honestly say from the bottom of my heart that I have never seen her happier. Her and Jason were just meant for each other in so many ways.
This was BY FAR the most emotional wedding I have ever been too. Everyone was crying with tears of joy. I am beyond excited that I had a camera in front of me to hide the tears. The quote of the day was " look at the sky, look at the sky…. I will not cry I will not cry" however we always did. From the first looks, to the ceremony , to the speechs, to the dances… it was beyond emotional. Everyone was so happy to see these two finally say I do.
You can definately see all the thought and effort Robin and Jason put into there wedding details. The wedding took place at Robin's Parents home. We had done not only a first look with Robin and Jason but with there parents. That was such a cool and sentimental part of the day and that was the start to many tears!!! The reception took place at Schultz's County Inn in Merrill, WI. The flowers were designed by the amazing Fawn from Inspired by Nature.
There were many unique details and planned out moments. Such a board game for a guest book, custom made Vanilla for the guest and a planned out first dance. It was such an honor to have been asked to document their day. I am just giddy to finally show all of you this wedding!
Here are some details in the eyes of Robin and Jason. Please sit back and enjoy there comments and when you are done … please take a peak into their wedding and their life for a just a moment! ENJOY 🙂
* How did you first meet? ( Who What When Where and why! ) Give me all the details!
We met at a local game store where some of our friends hung out in May of 2008. I was in the midst of a group of my guy friends when he walked by and said, "Hi Robin." and kept walking. This made me intrigued because he didn't say it in an arrogant, "look at me" kind of way, but more of a way that seemed like we should already have known each other. It was history after that, we spent the next three months walking around town talking and getting to know each other better.
* When did you know that he/she was the one?
We both seemed to know about six months into the relationship. Very cliché but we just fit and balance each other out way too much for things not to work out.
* Tell me about the proposal( Did you see it coming? how long was it in the planning)
It had been talked about for about 6 months and was in the planning for about 4 months. I new it was coming eventually. I had told him the type of ring I wanted, and gave him multiple ideas on how to propose, but the ultimate decision was up to him. He took me out to dinner with one of my friends. When dessert came around, he pulled out a ring box. I opened it to find it full of chocolate! I almost threw it at him thinking it was a cruel joke. Lucky for him he had pulled out the real box and was down on one knee when I looked up.
* Tell me one thing you love most about each other?
Jason loves my quirkiness, and I love his patience
* Besides getting married what was the one thing you looked most forward to one your wedding day?
Our first dance!
* What inspired your wedding theme and decor?
Us. We wanted a very personal wedding and we wanted it to reflect our relationship and who we are
* What is one thing you wish you would have done differently?
No. We did exactly what wanted and how we wanted it. (Jason says having two Marie's to capture more moments!)
* Any advice for the newly enagaged couples planning there wedding?
Do the planning by yourselves for as long as you can, minus bridal showers and bachelor/bachelorette parties. Jason and I did everything by ourselves up until a month or two before the wedding because we had to hand over the reins. But it made planning so much less stressful and fun! The entire reason that wedding planning is stressful is because of other people. Be firm in what you want and don't let other people sway your decision into something you don't really want. This is your wedding, do what YOU want!
