Q&A’s with Greg and Emily:
Favorite moment? Our first kiss!
Funniest moment? It was pretty funny when our unity vase fell over following already having dropped our wedding rings in the ceremony.
Favorite detail? My favorite detail was the ceremony decor with the different style lanterns (some of which my mother and sister had made). Greg enjoyed entering the reception Colts style to Trick Daddy’s “Let’s Go.”
First Dance Songs? Bride and groom: “She’s got a way” by Billy Joel, Bride and father: “Have I told you lately that I love you” by Rod Stewart, and Groom and mother: “You are the love of my life” by Carly Simon.
Honeymoon plans? California for some relaxation on the beach and our first trip to Disneyland.
Advice for planning brides/grooms? Greg stresses the importance of setting a budget and having contracts. I would say trying to figure out what details are truly important, and trying to be flexible with the remainder. Oh, and getting an excellent photographer We love our photos and the memories we have when we look through them!
