WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE OUT TO A COUPLE PLANNING THEIR WEDDING? No matter how perfect your day is or no matter how many things don't go how you'd planned, just remember - either way you get married! At the end of the day, it's about your marriage and not your wedding, so relax and enjoy every moment of the celebration instead of getting caught up in the details. And oh well if it rains, umbrellas look cute in pictures.
MOST MEMORABLE MOMENT? Alex and I chose to write our own vows and kept them from each other until the moment we exchanged them. We are both terrible at waiting for any type of surprise because we tend to get so excited, and this was next to impossible to do, but some how we pulled it off and were able to hear them from each other for the very first time during the ceremony. It was a whirlwind of emotions and more special than I could have imagined.
When we hopped into our adorable getaway car and the driver asked us if there was any music we'd like to hear I said Michael Buble. It was our first real moment alone (driver excluded) and our first dance song, Everything, was the first one that played. It was such a sweet moment.
ANY OTHER DETAILS THAT HELP TELL THE STORY OF YOUR DAY? My mom always wanted to name me Clementine, and my dad gave her a strong no. Growing up, if I was ever upset with him, he'd say, "Just remember, you could be Clementine." When we walked into the reception, we noticed clementines by every place setting. I thought it was random, but they looked pretty cute, so I didn't think much of it. My dad told this story during his speech, and I thought it was absolutely adorable, and he had coordinated putting out all the clementines. Clementine Crawford would be a bit much.
IS THERE ANYTHING YOU WOULD CHANGE OR DO DIFFERENTLY? Not a thing! Just like the advice I'd give - everything goes the way it goes... and we're married!
