WASHINGTON, PA WEDDING: AMY & MIKE

There was no question; when Amy tried on the Aneka by Nicole Miller, she had found her dress. Not only did it lookslamming on her, she was suddenly just aglow. You simply can't ignore that! I love that her photographer managed to capture that glow, and that Amy and Mike are willing to share them with us! They were married at Friendship Community Church, with an awesome reception at the Washington County Fairgrounds!

Clearly, the Aneka is a big hit at Glitter & Grit, and it's absolutely clear why:

When you tried on your dress, how did you know it was the one? 
I knew going into dress shopping that I wanted a very romantic looking all lace dress.  When I put the Nicole Miller dress on, I loved how it hugged all my curves, the key hole back and the romantic look of it. 

What was your groom's reaction to seeing you in it? 
When I was walking down the aisle, Mike was biting his lip out of nervousness, but he later told me how beautiful I looked.

Please tell us your favorite thing about Mike... 
When you meet Mike, he has a way of making you feel like you've known each other for years.  He has an infectious smile and makes everyone around him happy.  He's very easy going and just a great person.

Did you incorporate any traditions into your wedding? 
For my something old and blue, I attached my Grandma Ella's rosary, which is very old and blue.  It also made me feel like I had a part of her with me.

Please describe the most memorable moment of the day. 
Aside from marrying Mike, it was my younger brother Dan walking me down the aisle.  He's eight years younger than me, but as we've gotten older, he has become very much the "man" of our family, and our protector.  Having him walk beside me and give me away to Mike was the second best thing that happened that day, the first was marrying my love.

Do you have any special advice for future brides? 
Try not and be so stressed.  Every woman wants the perfect day, but if something doesn't go exactly as planned, remember that you have one goal, and if at the end of the day, you are married, then you had the perfect day!
