bride+groom wedding day questionnaire:
What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Emily: the speeches
Zach: the first look
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Emily: don’t sweat the small stuff – likely you’re the only one to know anything went wrong
Zach: be patient through pictures and stuff because they turn out great and they make your wife happy
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Emily: when Zach’s mom switched from their first dance song by lady antebellum to the dirty dancing song “time of my life”
Zach: when Emily tripped up the steps of the altar at the start of mass
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Emily: not a thing!
Zach: absolutely nothing!
Where did you (or will you) go on your honeymoon?
We’re taking “many moons” – our first to Disney World in Orlando and our next to an all-inclusive resort in the winter!
