What was  the most memorable part of your day?

Tracie: Having my mom walk me down the aisle and seeing Stephen at the end of the aisle with a tear in his eye was a memory that I will always hold on to.  Its a moment you dream of, but when it all comes true and the moment happens its an amazing feeling!  Its even more special that all of our best friends and the closest people in our lives were there to celebrate our special day with us.

Stephen: My nephew(ringbearer) bringing the sign saying ‘Uncle Stephen your bride is coming’. The sign was a surprise. And then Tracie was next down the aisle!

We both think the first look was a close second place as our most memorable moment.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Tracie: Don’t forget to put your veil on!

Stephen: Have an extra shirt for the reception, it was very hot out, and it was nice having a dry shirt to change into for the reception.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Tracie:  The flower girl sleeping  through the entire ceremony.

Stephen: So… I got a bit emotional, and then I could hear my brothers and the groomsmen all sniffing. Hearing all of them was kind of funny, so that was about the only thing keeping me from completely losing it. 

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Tracie: It was perfect. 

Stephen: Nope
