t’s got to be the rain… Of course the only time it rained (ALL DAY!) was during the ceremony!! We also remember taking a moment to look around at the reception and saw everyone that we love smiling… so awesome!!!!
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Don’t sweat the small stuff. The day goes by in such a flash… enjoy the amazing friends and family that are there sharing this special moment with you!

The dancing… Our family and friends sure do have the moves!
If you could do it all over, would you change anything? Not a thing. Best. Day. Ever.
