What was your favorite moment from your wedding day? Why?
This is a toss up.
One is the Ceremony. I loved how personal Neal (one of our friends) made the ceremony. He quoted Dr. Seuss, and that reading fit our relationship so perfectly. It was so meaningful.
A close second is our first look. It was a great time to just spend with one another in the moment and take time to ground ourselves from all the chaos of the day.
What was your favorite detail from your wedding day? Why?
One of my favorite details from the wedding day was Brandon's wedding band. I had it inscribed with "I love you" in German. He made me a card in high school after German class one day that said "I love you. Do you love me?" in German. Of course I was taking Spanish class so I had to go home and Google Search was the card said.
Another detail I loved was our wedding cake. It was a White Chocolate Raspberry cake from Nothing Bundt Cakes. It looked so simple and beautiful, and tasted amazing!
What wedding planning related advice would you offer to couples planning their wedding?
Keep the focus on you and your marriage. A wedding is a day celebration and can easily shift your focus away from the true importance of the day, marrying your best friend. Other people will tell you their opinions, but stay true to yourselves.
Also, don't have a wedding you can't afford! It is better to plan within your means than have a big celebration you will be in debt to pay off.
What was the biggest surprise on your wedding day? Tell me about it.
Getting a matching bracelet from my mother. They both have infinity symbols and mine has the small heart. Usually I am the one getting us matching jewelry :)
What was your experience working with me on your wedding day?
Amazing! Seriously, everyone told me and Brandon that it was like you were an old friend just hanging out with us. Your personality and patience with a rowdy group was amazing. You seriously make us all feel so comfortable and are so genuine. I can't say enough about how awesome you made our day.
Other than me *wink*, who was your favorite wedding vendor to work with?
Of course it was you! But, the girls from Captivating Beauty were fantastic! Kaitlyn was so attentive and made sure she accomplished my vision. She was such a perfectionist, she even trimmed mine and my maid of honor's bangs so that they would be "exactly right."
