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!
