What was your

high point

of the day?  Seeing all my plans and ideas come to life at the reception areaJ and definitely walking down the aisle to Jared!

What if anything would you change about the day? The cake service! They were supposed to serve all the cake and let guests choose which flavor. Instead it was just a mess and two whole layers went unserved. What a waste!

What advice could you give to future brides? Get a wedding planner! I wish I would have paid the extra money for one. It was so hard doing everything on our own.
