“Our ceremony was one of my favorite parts of the day because it was so light and so personal and our guests LOVED that we’d made it true to us” She added.
“We decided to have our friend Scott marry us, in part because he introduced us and knows us well as a couple, and because he is hilarious! I know a lot of brides say the ceremony is really uncomfortable for them (standing up there with all eyes on them), but I honestly had the best time during our ceremony. Scott poked fun at Mike for waiting so long to get married (he’s the last of his friends.) And he explained how much partnership means to us. He gave recognition to our parents, as both of ours have been married for 50 years (which is rare these days!) And we had picked readings for each other (mine was a surprise to him) which were really sweet and personal. Scott joked around and made the ceremony light (during our vows, after having Mike go first, telling me to say “Ditto.”) The crowd was laughing the whole time during our ceremony.At the cocktail hour so many people came up to me saying it was the best ceremony they had ever witnessed.”
“The most special moment of our wedding day was our first look. It was again, so personal, and so special with us just being alone together and Mike seeing me as his bride for the first time. It reminded me of when he proposed, how emotional it was, and again we just stood there and hugged for a long time. Then we did our secret handshake and chugged a beer! Haha. I would TOTALLY recommend every couple do a first look. It’s really special to just be alone for a few moments on your wedding day. That was really the only time we had like that where we were alone and just enjoyed US as a couple with no distractions. I also loved spending time with my bridesmaids, getting ready with them and dancing with them. And I loved having my bridal attendant follow me around cater to my every whim (I really miss that!)”
