Q & A with the Bride:

Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. We had life-sized cutouts of our dogs made on foam core so that they could be at the wedding too.  This lead to a lot of great photo opportunities.  Our photographer took the extra step of doing a photo shoot with them around the property, this made for a lot of laughs once we received our photos post-wedding.
  2. We decided to have a small and intimate wedding with just close friends and family which allowed a more vacation feel.  With the smaller size we were able to have a week’s worth of fun events for the whole group.
  3. The first time I saw my husband to be in the garden.  We wanted to enjoy our guests post-wedding ceremony so it was important to us to have photos taken beforehand.  I feel it made the first look even more special to have a private little place for just the two of us.

If you could offer one piece of advice for other couples planning their wedding, what would it be?

To trust the people you hire to do their jobs.  Of course, do the “background” work upfront and then just trust them to do what they do best.  It will allow you to have so much fun and not look back and say “was I less than nice to the people I love the most?!”  Also keep in mind this is a day about you and your husband vowing to spend the rest of your lives together, make sure you don’t get caught up in the details and focus on what really matters. 

 Give us the one moment in your wedding day you can’t stop thinking about.

 I can’t pin it down to one moment, I think it was the overall feeling of love from our friends and family.  Everyone had to travel and really sacrifice their own personal time to be with us.  It was so nice to see everyone having fun with each other.  There was no feeling of bride’s side and grooms side we were all just one big happy family!
