Tell us a little about you and your beloved:  Matthew and I met in college and fell for each other pretty fast. Apart from being very much in love we have similar interests, the same basic goals in life and share a love for God. We are so excited about living our lives together and starting the next chapter in our life!
What was the most amazing part of your day?  Walking down the aisle toward Matthew. That moment was magical.
What else would you like to share about your big day?  I was so excited to finally get to show Matthew the video game themed groom’s cake we designed for him. He LOVED it!
Also, my grandfather was our officiant. He has married all seven of his grandchildren, and I was the last one. It was a very emotional moment for all of us.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now?Weddings are magical but they literally fly by. Splurge the money on a photographer and a videographer because they will help capture the memories and let you relive that magical day. You’d be surprised how much stuff you miss!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? My wedding was beautiful and I have no regrets. The only thing that went wrong was the only thing I couldn’t control and that’s the weather. The first rain of the season started right when the outside ceremony was supposed to! You know what though? We waited a few minutes until it slowed down then had the ceremony anyway! The rain added to the romance in the end. When things go wrong, just keep a good attitude because no matter what you’ll be married at the end of the day, and sometimes it makes the wedding all the more memorable.
