From the Bride... We decided to write our vows individually and read them to each other for the first time during the ceremony. It was really moving and emotional, but it was such a cool feeling to share this moment with our closest family and friends. I remember barely being able to read my vows because my eyes were welling over with happy tears.

Aside from the first look and the actual ceremony, I would have to say one of the most memorable moments was right after Bryan and I got swept away for sunset photos while our guests were all enjoying the cocktail hour. We wrapped up photos and were about to head into the cocktail hour to start greeting our guests, but our wedding coordinator suggested we hang out just the two of us for a few minutes. We found a cute little corner nook outside away from the party, there was a love seat and an outdoor fireplace going, and one of the staff members brought us some champagne. It was perfect. Bryan and I had our first quiet moment as husband and wife together and it was so special. We were able to give a quick toast to us and snuggled up together before we were swept away for dinner introductions.

The second most memorable moment is one that Bryan and I share. We had just left our private little sitting area and were headed to the main outdoor tented area for dinner introductions. I remember our coordinator telling us to take a deep breath, enter the tent, and to pause for just a few extra seconds to take everything in. Bryan and I held hands, danced our way through the tent doors and were completely overwhelmed with all the love and support that filled the room. We were surrounded by all our favorite people, friends and family, who had traveled near and far to be there for us on this special day. The interior of the tent looked like something out of a storybook or fairytale, it felt almost surreal. Once we made it to the head table and took our seats we squeezed hands under the table and took in all the amazing love and energy that surrounded the room. It was such a special, magical moment.
