Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: Romantic, fun and colourful/ floral
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: Giving Ryan his gift (the boudoir shoot) and seeing his reaction! And the memories we made with friends and family, especially during the speeches and dancing!
Groom: When Kristin was trying to put my ring on at the ceremony and it wouldn’t fit – it was funny cause I wanted a size up but she encouraged me to get a size smaller. I was also ecstatic that the bridesmaids requested the pokemon theme song.
Best wedding related decision: All of our vendors were amazing, especially because the two of us had no idea what we were doing. They kept us on track and also ensured we were able to enjoy all the fun! Also, having it all at one place was amazing! Way less stress and worrying.
Favourite detail: We really liked how all of our colours and decor turned out. We DIY’d almost everything and were worried about the bridal party’s different colours but at the end were super impressed with it!
Advice for future brides & grooms: Make a good final list of things to bring to the venue. (You’ll still forget something but maybe not as much) Don’t stress so much leading up to the wedding and trust your gut
Would you change anything if you could do it all over again? Just to tell ourselves to stop stressing so much before the wedding! Everyone said it but neither of us listened, it all turned out fine!
Best surprise of the day: All morning it was rainy and crappy out and that was my (bride) biggest fear the whole planning process, something I couldn’t control. Right before the ceremony it cleared up and was bright shiny and cool all day!
We were also surprised with how we both just didn’t care, it seemed like as soon as we saw each other we were on cloud 9 until the end of the day!
Anything else you’d like to add: Don’t sweat the small stuff!!!
