Why did you choose RiverCrest?
Tom and I wanted a venue that was able to accommodate both our ceremony and reception and we wanted the food and service to be amazing. RiverCrest delivered all that and more.
The planning process was very smooth and enjoyable although, without the assistance from the RiverCrest team it could have been a complicated process. For over half of our year-long engagement, I was working abroad which could have made communication difficult, but the staff made it seamless, and we were able to get everything accomplished!
A year later and our family and friends are still commenting on our wedding – how much fun they had and how great the food and atmosphere was! Tom and I are still buzzing with happiness from our wedding day.
What is your favorite wedding moment?
Tom: Seeing her for the first time in her dress – she looked beautiful!
Lauren: There were so many special moments during the day; can I pick two? Reading our vows that we wrote to each other was so special and something I had been looking forward to for a long time.
Secondly, ringing in the New Year with all of our family and friends surrounding us was a moment that I will never forget. A new marriage and a new year all in one night is something extra special. You could feel the love and happiness in the room the entire night.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Tom and I went to our happy place, Bethany Beach. We were so lucky with the weather, we were able to spend the days walking around the shops and boardwalk…in January!
Any advice to give future RiverCrest brides?
First, I would say congratulations for choosing the most amazing venue! You have made the right choice and now you can relax and let the professionals guide you to an amazing wedding day!
Secondly, I would say to pour as much of your personalities into your wedding as possible. From the colors, the music, favorite foods and especially your ceremony. Make your wedding about you as a couple and what you love about each other.
