What an amazing couple Lynsey & Matt are! You can’t help but have a smile on your face when you are around these two! Fave part of the day – when Matt said to me “I think I’m almost photo’d out” – I begged for 10 more minutes and he replied “oh, I’ve got about an hour left of smiles but after that I think I’ll be hungry”. So cute – if only all grooms would give me an hour warning!
Describe the vision/theme you had for your wedding in 5 words or less: A Rocket Dog Wedding
What are you favorite memories of your wedding day?
Bride: There was so much to take in that day – the feeling of anticipation to see Matthew and wear my wedding dress…also highlights include seeing all of my bridesmaids all done up and everything that had been planned come together. The music at both the ceremony and reception was very special since it was performed by very good friends of ours. Seeing friends and family who we hadn’t seen in ages. I have to admit the CHEER at the reception done by friends of our was definately a highlight as well. Another favourite memory are the conversations Matthew and I had after the ceremony in between pictures and listening to all the kind words that friends and family spoke to us at the reception.
Groom: In many ways my favorite memories of the wedding day all blur together. The moments that stand out as most memorable, however, were those moments where it seemed that time stood still. I remember the nervous breakfast I had with my groomsmen and the enjoyable times we had leading up to the ceremony. I remember with picturesque clarity the moment that my beautiful wife took her first step down the aisle. I remember with a smile the skits that our friends and family put on during the reception that kept us all in stitches. I remember the heartfelt speeches that truly encapsulated the significance of that day and the loving family that surrounded us. And I remember the car ride home and the surreal feeling we got when we realized that, after months of planning, it was all over.
Favourite detail: The flowers!! I was so excited to see how all the colours looked so awesome together
Advice for future brides & grooms: Make sure you stop and take in the day…. it goes by so quickly and there were a few times that we just stopped looked around and took it all in…. We are really greatful that we did that.
Best surprise of the day: It would have to be the cheer that friends of ours did it was hilarious. Also that duct tape really does fix everything!! (Thanks Livia)
