What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Bride: When I finally saw Dan in the vineyard for our first look photos. I’ll never forget the way he looked at me when he first turned around to see me.
Groom: When I saw Ali walk down the aisle.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Bride: Take a minute during the reception for just the two of you. We walked out onto the lawn and just stood there looking out at the vineyard and back on the beautiful reception tent, just the two of us, and took it all in. It was a pretty incredible feeling.
Groom: Let the vendors do their jobs – they’ll take care of everything – you don’t need to worry about every detail.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Bride: When Dan picked me up, with all the guys, and floated me above the dance floor during “Piano Man”.
Groom: Having the dance floor work itself into an all out frenzy on the first song. Usually dance moves like “the worm” happen towards the end of the reception, not in the first three minutes.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Bride: No! Everything was perfect and I wouldn’t have changed a thing!
Groom: I would have loved to have participated in the three-legged race that occurred on the dance floor while I was playing guitar with the band. Other than that, everything was perfect!
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We spent our “mini-moon” relaxing on the beaches in Puerto Rico, and are going to Spain and Greece this fall. We can’t wait!!!
