Dream come true: Fairy tale wedding starts with love at first sight — for groom


College sweethearts Erin Miller and Matthew Chaney may not have fallen in love at the exact same time; however, once they did, it was a storybook wedding come true. When asked if it was love at first site, Erin quickly responds that it was for Matt. Erin, on the other hand, took some time to realize Matt was the one for her.
“Matt and I have a running joke that I don’t remember meeting him until several months later. He claims he knew he wanted to marry me the minute he met me,” Erin says, laughing. Although details of their courtship may seem a little fuzzy at times, the same would not be said of the couple’s spring wedding. The details of that March day are clear as can be.
Wedding date: March 12, 2011
The proposal: Matt’s plans had to be modified when Erin decided to extend an out-of-town trip to visit her parents. He proposed the day after originally planned, but Erin still said yes.
The ring: Erin’s engagement ring is a round, center diamond with a pave diamond band from Meierotto Midwest Jewelers.
The location: The wedding ceremony and reception were held at The Arts Incubator’s Event Space, 18th Street and Wyandotte, Kansas City, Mo. 
The flowers: The flowers for Erin and Matt’s big day were created by Emily Walters and were mostly white with yellow accents. Each centerpiece was different, using a collection of vintage glassware including milk glass, silver trays and vintage linens. “Emily was incredible, and I think she jumped into my mind and created exactly what I wanted. My flowers and centerpieces were one of my favorite components of the day,” Erin says.
The dress: Erin selected a Lea Ann Belter gown from Laura’s Couture Collection on Shawnee Mission Parkway. It was strapless with a sweetheart neckline, a ruched tulle bodice and an A-line satin silk skirt.
The look: To complete Erin’s look, her hair and makeup were done by Megan Matson of Arista Hair Solutions. Erin’s jewelry included Kate Spade pearl and rhinestone drop earrings from Halls and a charm bracelet belonging to her mother. The bracelet was given to Erin’s mother by her parents, both now deceased, when she was a little girl. Her ensemble was complete with peeptoe Badgley Mischka shoes and a vintage hankie.
The bridal party: Erin asked each of her bridesmaids to select a dress in a shade of gray. The bridesmaids all wore something they loved and were comfortable in, and it reflected in the day. The groom and groomsmen wore gray suits from Dan Dan the Tailor Man in lieu of the traditional tuxedo.  
The photographer: Neal Troester and Eric Linebarger of LemonLime Photography.
The food: Since the majority of their guests were from out of town, Erin and Matt wanted to offer them a taste of Kansas City. This meant Oklahoma Joe’s barbecue was a must for the menu.
The cake: The couple selected BabyCakes in the historic River Market. After some difficulty in selecting two flavors of cupcakes, the couple chose to order a variety of cupcakes in every flavor offered.
The planner: Most of the details were coordinated by Erin, her mother and Matt. Julie Blanner of Coordinately Yours was hired for coordination on the day of the wedding. “Julie was awesome and helped keep everyone sane and relaxed,” Erin says.
The moments they'll never forget: “Our vows were definitely the most special part of the day. However, there was a moment at the end of the reception when the song 'Home' by Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeroes was played, and Matt and I were encircled by all our singing guests. I cried because I didn’t want this wonderful night to end,” Erin says.
Advice for KC brides: “I couldn’t have been more pleased with all of our vendors. It was perfect,” Erin says. “Just try to remain calm and remember the real reason for all the hoopla.”

Isn't it lovely to see couples sharing such a beautiful love story? We should all be as lucky but unfortunately it's not the case. I remember when I got married I was so excited by everything. We had the Australian honeymoon that was a beautiful addition to our story. I wish I could go back to those days.

I appreciate a lot this well written article. I've always dreamed to have a fairy tale wedding and two months ago my dream came true. I've got married and I had a beautiful princess dress and a fancy party. After that we spent a romantic honeymoon in Australia where we stayed in a beautiful resort and had a great time.
