What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Bride: Walking down the aisle and seeing Cassidy’s face.
Groom: Seeing Morgan walk down the aisle.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Bride: You can have a beautiful wedding on a budget. We planned ours in 4 months and under $10,000. It can be done!
Groom: If the bride says she wants it, let her have it.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Bride: My sister-in-law told me our ring bearer (age 4) was nervous to be in the wedding because he didn’t want to dress up in a bear costume. He thought he was going to be a “ring bear”. He was very relieved when he found out he got to wear a suit.
Groom: I got scared and thought Morgan was going to smash the cake in my face, so I beat her to it and smashed it into hers first. After we saw the pictures, I realized Morgan already had the cake in my mouth…oops! Also, watching my nephew (our ring-bearer) swerve down the aisle because he didn’t want to step on the flowers.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Bride: My husband is in the Navy and was gone for 2 1/2 months of the planning. I wouldn’t change anything for our wedding, but I wish he was here for the entire planning process.
Groom: Yes, I’d check the mail before I left on Friday. After the wedding day, I checked the mail and my nice glasses were there… I wouldn’t have had to wear those ugly temporary glasses on our wedding day.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Disneyland for a day. It was something close. Cassidy is in the Navy and Morgan is a teacher so we both have demanding jobs. We are planning a honeymoon in the summer when we have more time available.
