What traditions did you incorporate?

“We kept our traditions pretty traditional. Two of my favorite were to wait to see one another until I was walking down the aisle and having a private communion.”  

What was the most memorable moment?

Olivia: “The most memorable moment for me was peaking through the trees just before walking down the aisle and seeing Alex waiting for me, he totally caught me so this was his first glimpse of me as well! I couldn’t wait to get to him!”

Alex: “We wrote our own vows, so reading them so one another was a moment I’ll always remember.”

What was your first dance song, and why did you choose it?

Tell us about your grand exit!

“Well, our grand exit was a bit of a flop, we had LED helium balloons and no one tied strings to them so all our guest just sort of shook them at us. But it made for a fun memory and cool photos. Then we jumped in a Jeep Wrangler decorated with strings and beer cans and drove off as Mr. and Mrs.”
