Here's a post wedding interview we conducted with Sara.
What are three adjectives that describe your wedding's vibe or theme?
What is your best or favorite memory or moment of the wedding day?
My favorite memory of the wedding day was when Dave and I were dancing in the middle of a big circle that was made by all of our family and friends. As we were dancing around, I saw every person's face who meant the most to us. It was that moment that I realized I was so lucky to have the best family, friends, and husband in the whole world. The image will stick with me forever.
Do you have any advice for future brides as they plan their wedding? What would you do differently? What would you do exactly the same?
My advice to brides would be to just enjoy the day with your family and friends that come to celebrate with you. Even if there are a few minor things that don't go exactly as planned, the important part is that you and your fiance are married at the end of the day. Don't forget to have fun and to take a step back and reflect on all of your hard work coming together.
Where did you honeymoon? Would you recommend it? Why or why not?
We traveled to Hawaii (Oahu and Maui) after the wedding. We would definitely recommend going! It had the perfect balance of sight-seeing, relaxation, and night-life for us. We worked with Theresa at Destination Vacation. She went above and beyond to make our honeymoon a memorable one!
