Matthew & Marissa Haffemann
What was the overall creative inspiration for your wedding?
The vision for our wedding was the love for rose gold, sparkles, and navy. Both of us collaborated on the colors and vision.
What was your color palette?
Matthew wanted navy blue for suits, and the rose gold dresses created a fresh summer look.
What was the significance of your wedding date and/or location?
We wanted a summer wedding, and we had spent a lot of time at the Radisson when our family visited. They had also just updated the conference room.
What was your favorite moment in your ceremony and reception?
The first look. We highly recommend a first look to calm the nerves.
Would you change anything if you could do it over again? If so, what?
Nothing! The day was perfect, and we didn’t have anything go wrong. The timeline was perfect and right on schedule for all events.
What advice do you have for other couples planning their weddings?
Work together and help each other make decisions. The groom should be just as involved as the bride. And do a first look!
