Spouses Brett & Megan
Wedding Date April 4, 2016
1. Length of engagement
Brett: 10 months.
Megan: It was 9 months : )
2. 3 adjectives to describe wedding vision
Brett: Small, fancy and fun.
Megan: Book-related, antique and large. Guess whose came true… ; )
3. Most challenging vendor to find/hire
Brett: There wasn’t one.
Megan: Actually, hiring our ceremony musicians was the most difficult. It took some effort to find someone and then we had to find new musicians just a few weeks before the wedding! It ended up being completely worth the hassle.
How close to wedding hired?
Megan: 3 weeks Before.
4. Ceremony location
Both: Wadsworth Tennis Pavilion.
5. Most surprising thing
Brett: The weather – it was high 70s and sunny in April.
Megan: Not being stressed. Everyone thought I would be a nervous wreck but I was the most relaxed I’d ever been. My best friend was genuinely shocked at my demeanor!
6. Standout memory
Brett: Again, the weather! It was amazing. Plus, it ended up getting so hot during the ceremony that I thought Megan might pass out : )
Megan: All of the dancing. I had so much fun dancing all night.
7. Would you change anything?
Megan: I wish I would have stopped to take it in more. I was so happy and excited all day that I never had a calm second to just look around.
8. Wedding hashtag?
9. Guests couldn’t stop talking about…
Brett: All of it.
Megan: How similar to my parent’s wedding it was in terms of how much fun they had.
10. Advice for future couples in 125 characters or fewer
Brett: Don’t stress and have fun.
Megan: Make a list beforehand of all of the things you want to experience… dancing with the kids, a funny picture with your cousins… that way you won’t forget to do anything as it will be in the forefront of your mind.
