A bit from the beautiful bride:
"It is easiest for me to think of our wedding in segments: getting ready, ceremony, and reception. For each of those I have a favorite memory. In the beginning of the day I was most excited to see my groom – we had a romantic first look that took place on the top of the staircase that afterwards led us down the stars to our wedding party and close family and friends. Our ceremony music and d├ęcor we had thought about extensively. Our aisle was lit by candles, the strings were playing “At Last” and the double doors opened as my parents and I walked down the aisle. For the reception David and I had left to take our post- ceremony photos and when we returned the room had been “flipped” for dinner. We walked into the room and I was speechless – all the meetings, Pinterest boards, countless hours scouring the internet, and numerous e-mails actually brought what I had in my mind to reality. David and I were given a sampling of appetizers (we had not eaten all day – BRIDES PLEASE EAT!) and walked up the stairs to take a birds eye view of the room before everyone was welcomed into dinner. This moment was also our brief alone time, and the first private moments we shared as husband and wife admiring our wedding reception layout."
