Jason and Kristin are a match.com success story. After Jason proposed at Kristin’s Louisville home with the ring hidden in a chocolate-covered strawberry, the couple decided that they wanted to get married on a stage. They found Clifton Center, and got married in the theatre.

The most memorable moment was just seeing everyone have a good time dancing and having fun at the reception. We could not have asked for a better party to help celebrate our love to one another.
What was your old, new, borrowed, blue? My new was my wedding dress, my old was my grandmother’s engagement ring, borrowed was my MOH’s diamond bracelet, and my blue was blue letters that spelled “I do” on the bottom of my shoes. I also wore blue underwear if that counts!
You and your husbands’ wedding advice: Our advice would to definitely do the first look. It was so much fun being away at a different location just the two of us (and our photographer) taking pictures and getting to spend time with each other before the day got too crazy.
What was the biggest roadblock that you ran into while planning the wedding? The biggest roadblock was just making final decisions. I was pretty OCD throughout the whole process, you can ask my husband and entire family. I made sure I had every tiny detail thought of and taken care of.
Who/what gave you the most help in the planning process? I would say my MOH gave the most help during the process. She was always there to listen to ideas and be enthusiastic about any ideas that I had. We had many crafting days during the wedding planning process.
How much influence did your family/ fiancé have in the planning process? My fiancé had a say in all of the wedding planning. I would bounce ideas off my friends and family but ultimately I made the final decisions.
Which part of the process gave you the most stress? Our wedding planners provided a phone number for RSVP’s. Since we made our own invitations we had to type everything up ourselves. Well, we typed the phone number wrong on the invitations. We had to call/text/message everyone to tell them the new phone number or that we could RSVP for them. It all turned out fine.
What did you do that you found helped out with stress the best? Finally realizing that it was our day and even if it didn’t turn out the way it was planned that it didn’t matter because the end result was the same. Either way we would end up married.
Is there anything that didn’t go as planned? On the day of the actual wedding, everything went pretty well. The only thing was, that I had a personalized hanger for my dress made, and I left it at the hotel. It was not a big deal.
What was your favorite part of the experience/ event? Having a great time dancing with all of our friends and family! We loved every second of our wedding and reception. We had so much fun and would definitely do it all over again.
If you could go back in time, what would you have changed? I probably would have delegated more things to my husband or MOH to handle. I am a little OCD so I made sure everything was done and done correctly.
What did you do to save money? I made a lot of the crafts, flowers, and decorations myself to save money. I love crafting so I had a good time making the items anyway.
What was your biggest splurge? Our biggest splurge was the photography. We decided that the pictures were the most important thing to us because those were what we would have to remember that day forever. We could not have asked for a better photographer. Holzphoto was absolutely amazing!
