Christy & Doug

September 17

Brewster, Massachusetts


Which three details from your wedding were your favorites?

  1. After our rehearsal dinner, we invited everyone to a casual bonfire on the beach.  It was a great night because we were able to relax and catch up with people we haven’t seen in years!
  2. Our ceremony was held on the front lawn under a large oak tree that was beautiful but the best detail was that I was able to get ready in a room overlooking the front lawn.  We were able to see everyone arriving at the wedding and the guys walking in while we waited.
  3. We spent 6 months making and bottling homemade limoncello to give as favors and everyone loved them!

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

Christy: Don’t rush the planning because everything will fall into place and don’t stress the small things on your wedding day because no one will notice they were missing at the end of the night.

Doug:  Enjoy the planning because the actual day goes by so fast and looking back I enjoyed it even more because I stayed involved in the planning.

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

 We decided not to see each other before the ceremony which made seeing each other for the first time during our ceremony such a special moment.  We will both remember that moment forever!
