What made you choose Turf Valley Resort as your venue?

We chose Turf Valley because of the convenience of being able to have the ceremony and reception in one location. As soon as we saw the Waterford Ballroom with the windows and the outdoor fountain, it became our top choice. It was a truly great day! All of our guests agreed the food, service, cocktails and staff of Turf Valley were so hospitable. They made the day special.

What was the most memorable moment from your wedding day?

The most memorable moment was as the Wedding March played, having the doors open and walking down the aisle and seeing my husband's beautiful face. It was also a "paparazzi'" moment, as cell phones were recording and photographing me coming in and my husband standing at the alter.

Did you have any wedding must-haves that had to be part of your special day?

We wanted to have something fun for the guests, so that's why Focus Pocus Photo booth was so great. The vendors had props and you could text the photos immediately to yourself upon completion. There was a lot of dancing and laughing, which made for a fun night.
