What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Jessica: Seeing Darren standing there waiting for me and saying our vows to each other, also the father daughter dance.
Darren: Was seeing my future wife walking down the aisle, also everything that day.
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Jessica: Stress only about the important things. The day of, just let everything go. Some things are out of your control. The day goes by in a blink of an eye and you want to remember it in a positive way.
Darren: Make sure you choose a responsible best man. And be 100% in the moment because the day goes by faster than you can ever imagine.
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Jessica: I brought toms to change into for dancing shoes. My bridesmaids had to shove them on my feet because they were so swollen from my high heels. I couldn’t get my heels into the toms so I had them half on all night!
Darren: We had a candy bar and someone accidentally put the glow sticks on the candy table. Needless to say one of our guests thought that they were honey sticks and tried to eat one!
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Jessica: I would have to say I would have like the party to go longer than it did. 9pm was to early! I could have gone on for another hour!
Darren: We didn’t have a videographer and now I wish we did because the day went by so quickly.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
We went to Punta Cana in the Dominican Republic. It was beautiful! Beautiful beaches and tropical drinks all day.
