Matt: Definitely Alex and Brianny (ring bearer and flower girl) panicking and running down the side of the venue instead of walking down the aisle. Jade: I didn’t get to see that part! For me, watching my Uncle Charlie dance for 5 hours straight with literally every lady at the wedding. He was great!

Decide what’s most important to you from the start (besides, you know, actually getting married) and try not to sweat the other stuff! For us, we decided to make photography a bigger part of our budget, and we are so glad we did. There’s so much going on during a wedding that it’s impossible to see it all, and even the parts you do see can feel like a dream just weeks later. We’re really happy to have it all captured in such a powerful way. For others, the food might be most important, or the flowers. Try to decide from the start, because once you start browsing Pinterest it will feel like *everything* is vitally important (looking at you, cupcakes vs. cake debacle!)

Jade and I are always on time, so as I pulled up to the venue before the ceremony, I accidentally saw Jade’s back and shouted “oh no!!” as she walked inside.
