What was your favorite part or moment of your wedding day?
Picking one moment of our day is challenging. It really was the best day ever.
Elizabeth: For me, I think my favorite part was seeing Reed when I walked down the aisle with my Dad. His reaction gave me so much comfort and made not doing a first look worth it! I really loved every single moment and am incredibly thankful to have had such a perfect wedding day.
Reed: I made myself take a few moments throughout the day to enjoy what was going on around me. Seeing my future wife walk down the aisle, watching my family and friends dance, eating and smiling are all things I will forever remember.
What are you looking forward to about your future together?
We are looking forward to spending the rest of our lives together. Only God knows what that will look like and we cannot wait to see what He has planned for us.
If you could give one piece of advice to a future bride or groom, what would it be?
Elizabeth: splurge on things you and your guests will enjoy and remember for years to come - great food and drinks, live music (My Yellow Rickshaw, specifically, because they are very INCREDIBLE), an organized and talented photographer, and a day of coordinator if your venue doesn’t offer one! These are things people all commented on about our wedding, so it made every penny spent worth it to us. If you are going on your honeymoon right away do not leave until Monday! You will want a day to relax a little, clean up, finish any last minute packing, have breakfast or dinner with family/friends, etc. Oh, and if your husband accidentally runs over your dress with the golf cart, it will be okay and no one will notice after it is cleaned up.
Reed: when your lovely bride to be asks for your opinion on things, don’t say “whatever you want to do.” She wants you to give your opinion (even though it might be wrong it is still wanted).
Are there any specific photos you can't wait to see?
Every single one. We cannot wait to see them all!
What did you enjoy most about having Kirsten Wray Photography as your wedding photographer?
Choosing Kirsten to be our wedding photographer was one of the best decisions we made in our planning process. She is professional, organized, funny, and of course an amazing photographer. She listened to all of our ideas and made everything we wanted happen. The timeline she created specifically for our wedding day photos helped everything else that day fall into place. It kept us on track and ensured we got to enjoy our reception. We actually ate dinner and cake, which was so nice! You will not be sorry if you trust her to capture your special day!
