How did you two meet? We worked for the same medical practice
How did he propose? Down on one knee(rather awkwardly, lol) in the exact location of our very first kiss
What was the most fun part of wedding planning? Knowing that I would be spending the rest of my life with this sweet man who completes me and loves me more than I could ever imagine possible, my soon to be Husband is without a doubt the best decision that I have ever made, I’m looking forward to doing life with him.
Which part did you not like as much? Having to change venues at the last minute due to bad weather, it was too cold and windy to have at the beach.
What are the biggest pieces of advice you wish you would have known before the wedding day. To make sure that all vendors and planners truly understand and get your vision and that they are all on board and can meet your expectations. I would definitely spend the extra money and hire someone specifically to oversee the entire production, keeping everyone in check and resolving any last-minute hiccups, it will save you a lot of disappointment in the long run.
