Unforgettable wedding moment: All of the nervous energy that is built up just before walking down the aisle and then seeing Chris – it all just went away and we were in that moment, and I didn’t even realize anyone else was at the wedding, it seems like it was just the 2 of us.
Most valuable piece of advice: A friend told me a story about her wedding and she used lemons and obsessed over making sure all the lemons looked exactly the same and when she was doing it realized that it didn’t really matter and when she asked people after the wedding they didn’t even remember the lemons were there at all, so don’t worry about the little things.
Quirkiest detail: Everyone kept asking us what to wear for the wedding and our only request was no ties or suit jackets!
Thriftiest trick: We went to a farmers market the morning of the wedding and bought all the flowers for the bouquets for $25 and then made our own, I used my grandmothers broach to add a special touch to mine.
