Bride:We had bagpipes play at our ceremony and reception (Dan Shepherd, Pipe Major), it was the perfect touch to our perfect day!
Groom: Same answer as the bride!
Bride:The Best Man’s toast!! Travis’s brother who is the lead guitarist in The Junction541 Band was the Best Man. While he was giving his toast to Travis and me he said “everyone knows today is really about Allison…so I’d like to sing her favorite song!” He then played his own rendition of “Say My Name” by Destiny’s Child! It was hilarious!! I sang along and laughed the entire time!
Groom: Seeing my bride walk down the aisle…I lost it, she was stunning!
Bride:The weather. A front blew in the morning of our wedding day! So while the girls and I were at the hair salon it was pouring down rain! Luckily the rain stopped in time for pictures at the church!
Groom:Last minute errands the day before and the day of our wedding…we are professional procrastinators!
Funniest or most embarrassing moment:
Bride & Groom: The Best Man’s Toast
One piece of advice for future Brides or Grooms:
Bride:Your wedding day will be more perfect than you can imagine! Planning your wedding may be the most stressful time of your life…but stay calm and appreciate every helping hand!!
Groom:Have your groomsmen with you the entire day of your wedding, arrive early to everything so you have time to settle your nerves, and don’t get too drunk the night before your wedding!
Why did you get married, or what does marriage mean to you?
Bride:I married Travis because he is the man I have prayed for since I was a little girl. He is everything I have ever hoped for in a husband. Marriage is the most beautiful sacrament and commitment a man and woman can make.
Groom: I married Allison because she is everything I expected my future wife to be. My parents have been married more than 30 years, their example of a loving marriage is exactly what I’ve always wanted. Allison and I will strive to have a marriage as happy and loving as both of our parents’ marriages.
How to make your spouse happy:
Bride:Respect him, speak his love language, and admit when you’re wrong.
Groom:Say yes to everything, right or wrong we’re both here to make one person happy…and she knows who she is!
What do you look forward to the most about being married?
Bride:I look forward to many years of love and happiness with the man of my dreams! And having children!
Groom:Making babies…and practicing making babies!!
Any other information you’d like other couples to know:
Bride: Listen to your parents. They know what they’re talking about and they will help make sure your day is perfect!
Groom: Give yourself at least half a day after your wedding before leaving for your honeymoon.
