Dream Wedding Update

November 18th, 2011

It’s hard to believe it’s already November 18, which means only 15 more days until Laureana and Adam have their Dream Wedding! We wanted to recap what they have done so far and what you have helped them plan:

  1. RELATE: Even before Laureana and Adam were voted on as our winning couple, they took the RELATE Questionnaire – a comprehensive survey that gives couples (at any stage of commitment) an opportunity to sit down and talk about their relationship. They thought the survey was both enjoyable and informative and found that their results reflected very similarly, especially in communication! Anyone can take the RELATE Questionnaire, free of charge, by linking from the StrongerMarriage.org website
  2. DRESS: One of the first elements of their wedding Laureana and Adam had viewers help them plan was Laureana’s dress from Mary’s Bridal. The women at Mary’s Bridal helped pick out dress options for Laureana that they knew would look fabulous on her and FOX viewers picked this one! For more information on Mary’s Bridal, visit their website or stop by their store, located at 6267 South Highland Drive Salt Lake City, Utah 84121.

  3. PHOTOS: To help remember the moment, Adam and Laureana had an engagement portrait session with Ashlee Brooke Photography. Ashlee does an incredible job of making everyone look naturally beautiful and ties in some gorgeous landscapes. Photos from their engagement shoot will appear on their invitations and Ashlee Brooke Photography will be shooting their wedding as well! (You can check out some teasers from their engagement shoot on Ashlee Brooke Phototography’s Facebook page.)
  4. THEME: The second thing FOX viewers helped Laureana and Adam decide on was the theme of their wedding. Ella Rose Floral, Beautiful Wedding Announcements and Cake by Roxie came up with three wonderful theme choices, including Park City Winter, Holiday Sparkle and Classic Christmas. Viewers chose Holiday Sparkle!

  5. RINGS: In our final week of voting, FOX13 viewers have the opportunity to vote for Adam and Laureana’s rings; something so important, because not only does it showcase your commitment to one another, but you will be wearing them for the rest of your lives! Saratoga Jewelry Co. helped the couple pick out three, incredible ring choices, which you can vote on here. The winning designs will be announced on FOX13’s Good Day Utah on Monday morning!
  6. PRE-MARITAL COUNSELING: It’s easy to get caught up in the planning of the wedding (especially when it’s a whirlwind like it has been for Laureana and Adam!) and not look to the future and have those important conversations with one another. To help make sure they are fully prepared for their life together, Adam and Laureana are meeting with marriage and family therapist. Dr. Liz Hale.

In additional to the elements mentioned above, Laureana and Adam have been working with Newpark Resort & Hotel to plan the reception, Utah Food Services to design their menu, Divine Limousine about transportation and Laughing Gravy Entertainment for music!

Stay tuned for a blog post from Adam and Laureana about their thoughts on the process and excitement for their future together!

To our married readers out there: what was the most memorable part of your wedding planning process and did you and your partner take time to have those important conversations about your future?
