What was your favorite part or moment of your wedding day?
Since we decided to not have a first look before our ceremony, the best part was seeing each other for the first time as Alex came around the corner with her dad.
What are you looking forward to about your future together?
Starting a family together.
If you could give one piece of advice to a future bride or groom, what would it be?
Hire a day of coordinator. It was so helpful to have our coordinator manage all of the final details in the last few weeks before and on our wedding day. We loved being able to enjoy on our wedding day without those extra stressors.
Are there any specific photos you can't wait to see?
We can’t wait to see our “around the corner” picture from before the ceremony, John’s face when Alex walks down the aisle, and the late night pictures we took around the venue after sunset.
What did you enjoy most about having Kirsten Wray Photography as your wedding photographer?
Kirsten knows exactly what she is doing and leaves all of the stress off of you. She was very efficient and organized, and she made sure our special day was captured exactly as we wanted it. We don’t feel like any picture we wanted was missed.
