What was your favorite moment on your wedding day?
After months of planning this amazing wedding one of my favorite moments was walking down the aisle to see my handsome (soon to be husband) waiting for me and getting to see him tear up at finally getting to see his bride. There were so many small moments during the ceremony that we just got to stare at each other and enjoy each other in that moment. Both Matt and I really enjoyed watching people’s reaction to his grooms cake it was an epic tribute to Star Wars! I think for both of us being announced husband and wife is a moment we will both cherish because it was a dream and answered prayer for us both.
What was the most helpful piece of advice you received when it came to planning your wedding?
We received a lot of advice but the things that kept coming up were to enjoy the process and that things will go wrong or not according to plan, but don’t stress your guests won’t know that wasn’t part of the plan unless you tell them.
What was the biggest reason you chose Dave Shay Photography on your wedding day?
Dave is amazing at what he does. Our engagement photos were beyond anything we could have imagined so we knew he was the right person to capture one of our most important days. Dave was able to photograph Matt and I as a couple and bring out our personality and get shots that I don’t believe anyone else could have. He’s so fun to work with and helps remind you to have fun and enjoy every moment.
How would you describe your Wedding day? Use as many or as few words as you’d like
Our wedding day was one of the most amazing and wonderful days of our lives. To be surrounded by friends and family to help us celebrate our love and the joining of our lives are memories we will always cherish. For me, it was a day of celebrating the amazing family that I joined and this amazing man that I now get to call my husband. Both Matt and I lost our mothers too soon and this day we were able to honor them with our love for each other and our families. Our wedding day was about finally getting to marry our best friend and love of our lives each other.
