We asked gorgeous Rouge Bride Leann and her lovely husband Erik to share a little bit about their incredible true love story with us, and were so happy they did! Read below for Leann and Erik’s top engagement and wedding tips, and advice for future Rouge couples!
What was your style inspiration for your wedding?
What do you admire about your husband?
I admire his fun and bubbly personality always trying to make me laugh when I’m being too serious!
WHat do you admire about your wife?
The ways she always tries to keep me being positive and of course her cooking.
How did he propose? Were you surprised?
He proposed when we were on vacation in Putin Bay and yes I was surprised! He did a great job!
Groom? Were you nervous? Did you ask her parents for permission before proposing? If so, which was more nerve wracking, the proposal or asking the parents?
Yes I was a little nervous and could barely eat dinner that night. I proposed to her in a park in Putin Bay while on vacation. I did ask her parents while she was working on a Tuesday evening they both met me for dinner - I think they knew right away what I was going to ask. Her dad said we could have just gone out for a beer.
Leann is wearing Allure Style #9556
Any tips for future Brides & Grooms?
Enjoy every minute of wedding planning and the day of because it goes by way too fast!
What did you love about your experience at Rouge Bridal finding your dress and your bridesmaid dresses?
I loved the friendly girls working there helping pick out dresses for what they thought I’d look good in. Very informative and make you feel good as soon as you walked in the shop!
What did you love about your suit rental experience at Rouge Bridal? Were you happy with the suit quality?
Yes he was happy with the suit quality. I loved the idea that the groom was able to have a trial in advance to get everything fitting perfectly. It was also nice the men didn’t have to go anywhere to get fitted and for the most part everything came in the right sizes and if not the correct ones were sent ASAP. Great speedy service with good quality and lots of color options that matched our bridesmaid dresses very well.
Who were your favorite vendors and why?
Barb Waechter - Caterer
Great food with several options and best price
Morgan Hellmich - Cake/cupcakes
Good quality delish cupcakes and our naked cake. She did great flower placement on our 3 layer cake.
Rouge Bridal - Wedding dress and groom/groomsmen suits
As previously mentioned friendly helpful girls and the suits worked out very well for not having to go get fitted.
Enochsburg hall - venue
Love the indoor outdoor venue, a huge venue to hold several guests
True Expressions - Photography
Great eye for photography capturing all the great moments (same with our videographer Povlin Films - they were a cute fun couple that captured the day and most times didn’t even notice they were filming us!)
The Event Rental Gallery - Wedding decor
Tons of options for renting at a decent price - the backdrop for our wedding was my favorite and Blair did an AMAZING job at setting everything all up for that.
Congratulations to Leann & Erik! We are so thankful you shared these moments from your special day. Cheers to a future of happiness and love!
