One thing that was very special to me was my "something old." I had a hanky that was actually the bonnet I wore home from the hospital when I was born.
Our favorite moment from our wedding day was definitely our "first look." It was so great to have that moment together in the midst of all of the hustle and bustle of the wedding. Seeing each other before the ceremony really helped to get rid of some of those wedding day jitters too!
Advice for couples:
Be sure to book your vendors early, you don't want to miss out on your top choices. Also, don't get so caught up in the details of planning the wedding. Remember what this time is really about and enjoy every moment!!
Which vendor was your highest priority?
I would have to say my photographer and videographer were my highest priorities. Your pictures and video are the things you'll have to remember that day forever. I did a lot of research online, talked to friends, and then met with my top choices. In the end, I chose those who I felt I would be most comfortable working with. I could not have asked for a better photographer or videographer!
