Real Weddings: Amanda Zidell and Aaron Brown
When love came for these longtime acquaintances.
These two are old family friends, but it wasn’t until Amanda’s junior year of college that love entered the mix. Aaron popped the question five years later, and the planning of their March 3, 2012, nuptials began. A private residence was the perfect venue for the modern, romantic fete, and though most of the planning was in the bride’s domain, Aaron gave one request: “It has to be fun.” Amanda felt the same, saying, “We wanted our guests to be taken care of and to feel our excitement.” The band kept their 250 guests dancing all night, and the custom cocktails couldn’t have hurt either.
