What was the most memorable moment of your day ?
We both loved just looking out and seeing all our family and friends that were there celebrating our relationship. Everything about our day was perfect – I loved getting ready with my mom and sisters (and girls!!), doing the something borrowed tradition my mom made for me, walking down the aisle with my dad, dancing on the party bus with our friends, being able to see the venue before everyone came in, sitting at our head table and being overwhelmed by the love we felt, our first dance, having my mom come and dance with my dad and I, having my sister get emotional during her speech, seeing my mom support my dad during his speech, breaking it down all night on the dance floor, and seeing everyone we love in one room it was the most special day that could ever be.
Any Advice for Future Bride and Grooms?
The best advice that we received before our day that I would love to pass along is that when you first kiss each other as husband and wife and you turn to walk out, take 10 seconds to just stand there, holding hands looking out at all the people that love you and are supporting you on one of the greatest days of your life. To enjoy the day because this is YOUR day, all the planning is done and if something goes not the exact way you want it that’s ok and to just enjoy being with each other and the people that love you.
Tell us about the wedding dress!I love my dress!!
It is a Martina Liana (style 1078) – it was tight fitting, v-neck cut with an open back and a long, detailed scalloped train. The train was my absolute favorite part and the most memorable detail about my dress was that my mom secretly got my old and new initials embroidered on the end of the train just like she did for her wedding dress when she got married to my dad.
Bonus Favorite Moments!
Playing football with our wedding bouquets on Central Catholic’s football field, chest bumping my BFF in my wedding dress, having you on the party bus, the dance floor being packed all night and the speeches/dances — so hard to choose!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Hawaii (Maui and Oahu)
Favorite Part about working with our team?
Our favorite part was that you guys became our friends and we had so much fun together. We loved the time we had together and how you worked with us to capture Ry and I and not just were there to take pictures. We appreciated and loved that you took the time to get to know us and our style because it showed in how amazing the pictures turned out. We just loved having fun with you guys and having you share our day with us!
The day certainly would not have been possible without this amazing crew. We cannot recommend them enough!
