Bride and Groom Questions
What was the most memorable moment of your wedding day?
All of the toasts at the reception. Liam and I did not anticipate that there would be any given the casual nature of the event, so we were surprised when four different family members stood up and said a few words. While the toasts were all simple, they were incredibly heartfelt. I will remember them forever.
What was your favorite detail?
The bouquet! (and other flowers provided for my reception) My talented Aunt Laurie (Laurie Lemek) designed and made all of the arrangements for my wedding. She is like a mother to me so it was very special.
Any advice for future brides/grooms?
Figure out what you (as a couple) want out of your wedding day and stick to it. While weddings are a wonderful opportunity for friends and family to celebrate together, the wedding is not about them– the wedding is about you. As the saying goes, “you can’t please everyone”. And this is especially true for weddings!
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Cutting the cake! Liam’s mother is an amazing baker and made us a beautiful, two-tier wedding cake. The waitstaff at the restaurant that we held our reception at suggested that we cut two pieces from the cake– one for him and one for I. Due to the multiple layers of each cake tier, the cutting was much more difficult than we anticipated! But we make a great team and established a cake-to-plate system in no time 🙂
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
We would have taken off more time both before and after the wedding! For preparing, spending time with visiting friends/family, and relaxing.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We leave for a cruise around the Mediterranean tomorrow!
