My favorite moment of our wedding day was our first look. Waiting for the moment I get to see my bride, felt like eternity. As I’m facing our family altogether smiling away— Not only could I not wait to see how beautiful Judy would look, but to start our next chapter together as a married couple to my best friend, my bride.
My favorite memory of the day was when Michael & I met for our first look! All the adrenaline from the excitement & all the nerves from the anticipation we’re all building up! We did our first look right outside in Market Square. Many by-passers from the Marathon weekend stopped to watch our magical moment… It was a bright and sunny April afternoon, both sides of our most loved family members were in attendance standing by my groom’s side. Giggling, crying & cheering us on as I approach him, it was so exciting! As I lightly tap Michael’s shoulder, he turns around to see me and says “Wow, Judy you’re beautiful.”
Cue the waterworks!
Another favorite moment of ours was saying our Vows. Standing at the alter holding each other hand-in-hand, although we were surrounded by our most loved family & friends— It felt like we were the only two in the room in complete utter bliss. After all the chaos we’ve had throughout the last two years of planning our wedding, what mattered most our love for each other that will be everlasting.
