Tell us a little about you and your beloved:  We have been together for almost six years. We love to spend time with each other and laugh. Trevor has a great sense of humor, he can make me laugh when it’s least expected. I cannot get enough of him! We have always noticed how much we enjoy each other’s company no matter what we do. We never have to put on a show.

What was the most amazing part of your day?  Brielle’s response: our first dance. We were able to finally stop and be with each other while relaxing and enjoying the moment. It was the only three minutes of the day that seemed to stand still.  Trevor’s response:  during our ceremony. Brielle’s parents were to walk her halfway down the aisle then I was to meet them and finish walking Brielle down the aisle. That was a very real moment that seemed to give us more emotion that we anticipated.

What else would you like to share about your big day?  We found it so funny how emotional we were at unexpected times. We were calm almost all the way through planning. My breakdown moment was when I saw my dad for the first time all dressed up, and I just fell apart. Trevor had a hard time talking to people because he would start getting choked up. Once the day got going we were so overstimulated it all became easier to handle.
