Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Rob and I met five years ago when he was on a trip home from the military. I met him through my two roommates whom he had grown up with. We decided what we had found was worth sticking it out long distance for nine months until he completed his time in the Air Force and moved home. Rob and I fell in love, bought a house, started a family and then decided it was time to tie the knot! Our wedding day was everything I could have imagined and more — but being married is by far the best part!
What was the most amazing part of your day? By far — being with all our family and friends. We decided to have a New Year’s wedding — that way we were able to share our special day with everyone we love, while at the same time ringing in the new year with a huge party!!

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Don’t stress! Focus on a few items that mean the most to you and don’t sweat the small stuff! The day itself will go by so fast and all of your guests will remember only how beautiful you were and how much fun they had.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance?I know it sounds very cliché , but everything turned out absolutely perfect!! I would have liked to take a step back the day of and let everything really sink in, because everything goes by so fast and some things about the night are a blur. So to future brides…try to stay calm and EAT!!!!
