What was your favorite part or moment of your wedding day?
Micah: My favorite moment was vowing in front of God, our friends, and family that we are in this life together and forever. We were in a church full of people but it truly felt like it was just us. This was such a special moment and it will never be forgotten.
Blake: My favorite part was riding in the party bus from the church to the reception. It was fun to have a small celebration with most of our closest friends and family before the big reception.
What are you looking forward to about your future together?
Micah: I am most looking forward to the day to day life with Blake. I know this sounds boring but I have the most fun when it is just Blake and I relaxing and enjoying each other’s company.
Blake: Raising a family together.
If you could give one piece of advice to a future bride or groom, what would it be?
Micah: My first piece of advice would be to book Wedding Dreams by Linda. In short, they will do as much of your wedding as you’d like or as little as you’d like. We did everything through them, meaning flowers, decorations, food, etc. and couldn’t be happier. They did such a wonderful job turning our vision into reality while talking the stress away from us.
Blake: Don’t forget what the day is really about. Though an extravagant day is nice, there is no correlation between money spent and a happy marriage.
Are there any specific photos you can't wait to see?
Micah: I can’t wait to see the photos of Blake and I in front of the church or our first dance I can’t decide.
Blake: All of the family photos that were taken… especially with all of our nieces and nephews.
What did you enjoy most about having Kirsten Wray Photography as your wedding photographer?
Micah: We were running a little behind from the salon and I was a little stressed about that. When we got to the church, Kyla and Kaylee were so calming and made me feel like everything was ok… and of course, it was! They also were very flexible and paid attention to the details that could have easily been overlooked.
Blake: Me and my family were impressed with how quickly they were able to get photos of all the extended families. They were easy going and help the day move right along!
