What was your favorite detail from your wedding day?
The backdrop of our sweetheart table. It featured a Mickey-shaped floral hoop with the happily ever after neon sign.
Any memorable moments?
For the introduction of the bridesmaids and groomsmen during the reception, we created personalized Tinder bios that our DJ read out loud as they entered. We were surprised by Caitlin’s sister Clarisse, who performed a hula dance and also by Caitlin’s cousin Matt, who performed a piano medley of love songs. During the last song of the night, all of our guests on the dance floor formed a circle around us and we felt so much love and happiness at that moment.
What was the best part of your day?
Bride: During the final song of the night dancing with my husband, and being in a circle surrounded by our loved ones was the best way to begin our happily ever after.
Groom: I agree with Caitlin, but additionally, walking down the aisle with my wife and the realization that I finally married the woman of my dreams.
Any vendor(s) you'd like to rave about?
We want to thank all of our amazing vendors for bringing our vision to life. It was a day we’ll never forget!
