If you could sum up your wedding in a few words, what would they be?
Tell us about your wedding venue(s) and why you chose to get married there.
We chose to get married at St. Mary’s because that was my husband’s paternal grandmother’s church. She was my husband’s Godmother and we wanted to honor her presence in our marriage.
What was your favorite wedding detail?
My favorite wedding detail was my dress! I LOVE my dress!! I wanted a traditional wedding with a cathedral train and a cascading bouquet.
What is your favorite wedding memory from the day?
My favorite wedding memory is the moment I walked into the church and turned that corner to see Gary. I replay this memory everyday.
How did you incorporate your personalities into your wedding celebration?
We incorporated our personalities by making sure we had a fun time. Gary and I love to have fun, sing, and dance! That is something we wanted our guest to do as well. Also, we incorporated our loved ones in throughout our wedding. We had certain details that paid tribute to each family member that past away. One of my favorites was the prayer box that held every loved ones name in it. This box draped from my bouquet along with my grandmothers rosary.
