Karen + Scott
What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Karen: It’s really hard to choose one, there were so many moments full of love and happiness and I was concentrating the whole time to remember it all! One of the most memorable moments might have been the first look. I had had the opportunity to “spy” on Scott from the bridal suite and he looked so handsome, but something about walking towards him, knowing he was so nervous and excited to see me, anticipating the look on his face when he saw me, I was completely overwhelmed with emotion. I almost think that because it was raining, there were fewer people around and it made the moment more special for me. Beyond that, I think first walking into the hall and seeing everyone I love and care about and particularly Scott, waiting at the end, was incredible. Makes my heart beat just thinking about it!
Scott: Definitely seeing karen at the first glance. I don’t think i’ve ever felt so full of nervous energy in my life! She looked gorgeous and i can remember thinking, how’d i pull this off!?
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Karen: I think everyone says this, but really trying to be present and mindful about everything and not sweating the small stuff. The day really does fly by but I tried my best to slow down every moment and commit it to memory. I think also, depending on what your schedule is, having all photos done before the ceremony (including a first look if that makes sense for you) is really important. After the ceremony, all I wanted to do was say hi to everyone, give hugs all around, so I’m glad we didn’t have to go do more “official” photos!
Scott: Just chill out and enjoy the day, it goes by extremely quickly, so don’t sweat the little details. Everything works out for the best and taking each moment in is what’s important.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Karen: I think there was just so much laughter throughout our wedding. I remember laughing a lot through the ceremony which was amazing (especially when I said, “so many tears” during the vows,…while crying). Similarly, our MC’s were absolutely amazing. When they came out in homemade Jedi outfits and lightsabres, I nearly died laughing. But secretly, I think the funnies moment was when we were cutting the cake. We did the whole, “cut the cake together, pose with it, feed each other” thing, but then people requested that we mock cut the cake again for more photos. So we did, and then the knife broke! I just made the most hilarious/terrible face and reached for Scott, as he said, “this is why we can’t have nice things” which just made me laugh so hard.
Scott: When the knife fell apart after the second pass at the cake cutting. There have been some photos of karen’s face when it fell apart in her hands and it was priceless.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Karen: I don’t think I would change much! We talked about how, oh it would have been nice if it wasn’t raining so we could have had the ceremony outside, but then we realized with all the events going on, there would have been SO many people around (I already got heckled a bunch of times in the rain, positive heckles, but still) and it would have taken away with how intimate and amazing the ceremony was indoors. It was pretty much a perfect night and we had an unbelievable amount of fun. The best!
Scott: Nope, there were a few hiccups, but they all came together to create an event we’ll be able to look back on happily for the rest of our lives.
