Wedding music: Blake won my heart in high school with a mix-cd he gave me before we were really dating. He made a mix for the wedding using some of the songs.

Unique details: I wanted to be able to keep my bouquet after the wedding. So we brainstormed and came up with the button flower bouquet. It turned out really nicely, and we ended up using buttons as the theme for the wedding.


Bride's answer: After the ceremony when we left to change into our wedding attire, I told him I'd see him soon, looking beautiful. He replied "You already are more beautiful than I could imagine." Then walking out and seeing my husband all dressed up in his suit waiting for me was awesome.

Groom's answer: Waiting to go into the ceremony room at the temple, sitting quietly holding hands.


Place: Road trip to Yosemite and San Fransisco

A memorable moment of the honeymoon:
On the drive back, we were pretty tired and had been driving for a long time. Blake was driving, and we stopped to get some gas. We pulled out of the gas station and Blake was driving on the wrong side of the road. After about half a mile, he turned to me and asked "Am I driving on the wrong side of the road?" That's when I decided I better take a turn driving.

Don't be afraid to have have some personal time. It's a big adjustment, so being alone is nice sometimes.

Rehearsal dinner: We had family and friends together at the grooms home.

Bridal gown: I chose to have my gown custom made for me by a lady in Pensylvania on etsy. It was not a good idea. After having it arrive late (less than a week before the wedding.) it was AWFUL. The sleeves were two different lengths, the waistband was sewn in crooked. It wasn't even salvageable. My mom got on the phone and called all of the bridal shops that I had gone to. They pulled the dresses that I liked for me and the next day we went into Bridal Image. They were so kind, and helpful. The same thing had happened to them. I found a dress that was very lovely, and didn't need alterations. They cleaned it for me and had it ready to go!
