Fun facts about their day..

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Bride – My grandpa gave me the advice to lock eyes with Jonathan on my way down the aisle. It was something my grandma did to him, and he remembers it to this day. I took his advice and it was the greatest moment, and one that I’ll never forget. Oh, and my matron of honor praying for fertility before we went to the ceremony. ;p
Groom- Seeing Kayti come down the aisle.

What was your favorite detail?
Bride – My dress and veil.

Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Bride – We really thought 100% of guests would show, since we kept our number small and it was all close family and friends, but 10 of 107 didn’t show. So, apparently it’s really true that about 10% won’t make it. And we’d already paid for them!
Groom- No advice 🙂

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
Bride – I’d tell the staff to not cut all the cake. Apparently, not everyone ate it or wanted it but they passed it out anyway… so we didn’t have anything left over except for the top layer. Oh, and I’d listen better! I missed the last call for the photo booth! :'(
Groom-  I wouldn’t use Men’s Warehouse. We called, stopped by, and the one we used in Texas still messed up and didn’t send my tux to Ohio. And the shirt they said was fitted.. didn’t fit.

Where did you go on your honeymoon? We’re going to Hawaii now that the school year is over! We’ll be in Maui.

How was your experience with Crystal Jo Foto?
We loved it. Crystal Jo made everything really easy and was fun to work with.
