What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Jon & Kelsey: First Look
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Kelsey: Hire the best vendors in town and plan, plan, plan. The combination of a winning team and your planning will result in a no-stress, lovely wedding. On your big day, take the time to love your people and truly enjoy the day!
Jon: Soak it all in. The day will rush by. Make sure you stop, breathe, and smile at the thought that your wedding day is, in fact, finally here.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Kelsey: My funniest moment during our day was dancing with my favorite #weathermanMike to All About That Bass. Halfway through the jam, Mike did the splits and accidentally ripped his pants through the crotch (see photo below). During our reception, Bobbi+Mike were officially deemed the most fun photographers in all the land–hire them!
Jon: Ben standing in for a romantic slow dance was the best.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Jon & Kelsey: Absolutely not!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Bloomington? Yay, grad school…But seriously, we’re headed to Jamaica over New Year’s.
Your eyes are not deceiving you… YES… I’m CUTTING the dress! AHHHHH!!!! I swear to you… she asked me to do it!
