If you could pick one moment that stands out to you as the best on your wedding day, what would it be?: When the doors opened, and I saw James standing up there next to Pastor Phil, I couldn't help it. I just started crying.
Describe any special traditions, personal mementos, or helpful friends/family members who played a sentimental role in your wedding planning or wedding day.: Stephanie helped me a ton with my wedding planning. James also, surprisingly enough, was a huge help as well.
What made you choose your venue(s) for your wedding day?: I picked it before we even got engaged. As soon as we did, we went to go look at it and I immediately knew. I didn't even look anywhere else.

What was one wedding planning decision that proved invaluable?: Having a coordinator. She seriously was amazing through the whole thing. It definitely wouldn't have been as smooth without her.
