Questions for the bride
Tell us about your wedding day?

I can’t think of our wedding and not get a giant smile on my face. We spent over a year planning the wedding of our dreams. Modern Day Floral helped us turn the McKay Ballroom into something out of a magazine. Karyn May Photography captured the night perfectly! With the help of our amazing band LUSA it was New Years Eve no one will forget and after three years later our guests are still talking about how much fun they had.

Favorite moment of the day?

My husband surprised me and our guests with a small speech when we all were seated at the venue. It was a small thank you to not only our families and everyone who helped out the wedding together, but he took a second to say thank you to me too. He is a man of very few words so it was extra special.

Day of wedding advice for brides?

Don’t let the small things stress you out. The day is about you and your husband. Find time to seek him out during your reception and take a minute to just soak everything in becuase it’s over before you know it.

Is there anything you would change?

I would have left in my honeymoon the next day or the following. We put 5 days in between and it was too many.
