What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Bride: The first look and saying I do.
Groom: The first look and when I saw her walking towards me down the aisle, I got emotional.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Those in the same situation as us as, being in a long distance relationship and planning it themselves all the way till the wedding day, we would say communication and enjoying each other are the key factors. It isn’t just the bride’s day but also the groom’s. FaceTime each other and show him your ideas and allow him to put in his. Try to be creative even if you’re not. There were things we made that we never made before. Yes we had lots of do overs but we never gave up and the end results came out great. It also helps build up your relationship as partners. Try not to argue over little stuff. We hardly did but when we did we made sure we didn’t end the day with negative feelings towards one another. Communicate! Communicate!
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Bride: Definitely the groom’s gift to the bride. Great idea bad execution. Flying a drone with a love letter to the door of the brides bungalow sounded sweet but not when winds decides to sneak up through all the buildings and crash the poor drone (three times).
Groom: practicing flying the drone a couple hours earlier was perfect but when the time came….crash! Lol. Luckily it’s durable and nothing was damaged except for the love letter; which shredded to pieces by the propellers when it crashed the second time.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Nothing! Everything, including the failure of the gift giving was something we can talk about years to come. We enjoyed all the moments of our day.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Due to work schedule changes we had to postpone our honeymoon. But when the time comes we’re gonna relax in a treehouse!
