Westmoor Country Club Wedding: Kelsey & Matt!
When Kelsey and Matt started planning their Westmoor Country club wedding, they knew they wanted it to be more of a fun party than a typical wedding. “The wedding will be formal, but not stuffy. We are getting married at a country club, so the dress will be formal/jacket required, but we want the reception to feel like a big party and for our guests to feel free to let loose. We don’t plan to do many traditional elements outside the ceremony…we prefer that the event flow naturally as any other formal party would,” explained Kelsey. Well, they certainly accomplished their goal. It was almost as if just the choice to have a Westmoor Country Club wedding added such a strong element of formality and elegance that all they had to do was bring the fun. No first dance, barely a cake cutting, one toast,…no pressure on anyone to do anything other than celebrate!
In fact, the realization that you can make your wedding whatever you want it to be was a huge turning point for Kelsey and Matt in the lead up to their big day. “You know the kind of day you want better than anyone else so don’t feel bad about making your likes and dislikes known!” urged Kelsey. “Having a first dance was stressing us out until we realized this was supposed to be our day, and we didn’t have to do one if we didn’t want to. Once we let go of what we thought a wedding was supposed to be and started planning the wedding we really wanted, everything went a lot smoother and was a lot less stressful!”
Really, this is a great metaphor for life. Weathering the storms with your chosen life partner, coming together and forming a plan that will make you both happy, navigating the complicated emotions encountered with different family members,…all these instances apply to weddings and life. Getting through the wedding planning process together is great preparation for everything else that is to come.
