How did you prepare for your wedding?
"Well considering I had an extra year (Thanks COVID) I had a lot of things that were already finished and booked, so it was a lot of minor decisions and finalizing things. But, throughout the planning process I took things one at a time and I also had a Wedding book with tips and a timeline which helped to keep things organized."
What feelings and emotions were you having on this day?
I was definitely feeling anxious (in a good way) because everything was finally coming together. Relief was another big emotion, simply that the day was finally here after pushing our date back a year, and I still couldn’t believe it! Even though the year came up rather quickly!
What was your favorite memory of the day?
There were many, but one of the top memories was our first look. In the beginning, we didn’t want to do a first look, but after thinking about it we decided to do one, and I am glad we did. We were able to have an intimate moment and take pictures together to ease the nerves. It was a special moment. Also, being able to see our family and friends throughout the day and that we were able to all get together and celebrate!
What was the ceremony like?
Short and sweet! The ceremony took place outside and it was a beautiful day! The scenery was picturesque and the cows were mooing, literally! John and I said our own vows so that was really special.
What special traditions did you incorporate into your wedding day?
One tradition that took place was the Chicken Dance! All of the weddings on my mom’s side, the Chicken Dance was always played in honor of my pap. It is always a fun time to get everyone in a dancing mood and laughing together!
Is there anyone you'd like to thank?
Of course, my parents and John’s parents for making the day possible! All of my bridesmaids and John’s groomsmen for being by our side throughout the years and standing by our side the day of. We couldn’t have done it without everyone by our side!
Overall, it turned out to be a really memorable day! Everything came together so nicely! All of the stress and mixed emotions that came with it, turned out to be a beautiful memory (a really fast memory). But, that is why we have so many wonderful pictures to look back on!
