Words from Dennis:
"Dude, what can I say... The whole day was such an awesome adventure. It was way better than I could've ever imagined. Every detail was perfect and it all just worked. I didn't really help with a lot of the planning, but the way that everything just came together was unreal. The love and support of the families really overwhelmed both of us.
As for the day of, my groomsmen took great care of me and I wasn't too nervous at all. We all had an awesome time the whole day even while we were just hanging out and waiting at the hotel.
I'm really glad that we did the first look. I think that it was a very personal and special moment for the both of us that we really needed. It gave us ease and comfort to spend some time together before all the craziness started.
The moment that got me is when I saw Emily walking down the aisle. Seeing her coming towards me in front of everyone we love, to say that she loves me and she wants to spend the rest of her life with me was just amazing. The song was awesome and she looked stunning! Hands down the best memory I'll ever have. I also think we killed it with our first dance so that was also a great moment haha. "
Words from Emily:
"Dennis and I have always been more excited about being married than the actual wedding, but once the planning begun, we saw how excited our family was and wanted to be sure we created a day that gave both a comfortable atmosphere for our guests and a true reflection of who we are. Dennis wanted it to to be unique and memorable, and I wanted it to be naturally bohemian and ethereal. Our touches of freshly-picked cotton, dusty miller, and a color scheme of burgundy, peach and gold brought out the exact look we had hoped to achieve.
We had family and friends travel from multiple parts of the globe to celebrate our special day and it was more perfect than we ever could have planned. Our pastor, Brandon Cook, led a beautifully touching ceremony which was followed by a celebration with food, drink, dancing and great company.
Strangely enough, I think my favorite moment of the evening was also my most nerve-racking moment of the entire day. I was trembling with positive anxiety and excitement right before walking down the aisle, but the combination of the music, clinging to my Dad's arm and seeing Dennis waiting for me is what calmed me with joy and I'm pretty sure the smile on my face did not leave the rest of the evening."
