Emily & Matt - Married!

When Emily first starting telling me about the details of her day I knew I would be in heaven. I mean really Tiffany blue?!? If you don't know how much I love this color then you've obviously never been to our studio. But beyond the details of their beautiful day this wedding was a joy simply because of Emily & Matt. These two care about each other sooo much! And it was obvious in every stolen glance and quick kiss. Emily & Matt thank you again for allowing Courtney and I to be a part of your day.. it was such an honor. 

Love how excited Emily looks here.

Emily had the details planned out perfectly all the way down to her shoes.

Preparing for her big debut...

Some very handsome and executive-looking men!

Check out this view! I had never been to Milford Hill before and after this visit... I can't wait to go back!

Emily's niece, Ivy, stealing the show. How cute is she?!

Beautiful bridal party!

Isn't Emily stunning?! Look at those eyes!

They were this sweet and cuddly all day!

Themes of the wedding carried throughout the day. LOVE these colors!

What was the most memorable part of your day?
Our first kiss as a married couple at the end of the aisle and at the head table during our reception, rather than at the altar. We wrote our own wedding ceremony and didn’t include our first kiss as the final piece of our ceremony. We are not sure if we forgot or it just seemed obvious at the time we put together the outline. At the end of our ceremony, our pastor completely forgot to have us kiss…after having a hard time reading his notes because of the wind and bright sun; we understood why he was flustered and forgot about the kiss. Our Best Man was able to use our “goof up” in his speech/toast, by having us stand up and kiss in front of our guests.
What is your funniest memory from your wedding day?
Emily: The entertainment of my two year old “flower girl” niece, Ivy during the ceremony. There was a frog croaking in the bushes right behind where the bridesmaids were standing. Every time it croaked, Ivy turned her back to everyone and said, “Where is it?” as she looked for the frog. I couldn’t help but giggle. Ivy seemed to enjoy our musicians’ performance of The Wedding Song. When they finished the song, she yelled out, “Take a bow.”
Matt: When we were watching parts of our ceremony on our slide show, later that evening. There were a couple of clips of Matt from the ceremony, where it showed him licking his lips. Matt states his lip licking was from having a dry mouth from the warm weather, Emily thinks he was nervous. Either way, it made many of our guests laugh.
Any advice you’d share for future couples getting married?
Enjoy every minute of the day, it goes by too quick. Don’t sweat the small stuff, but try to take in the small details of the day.

Would you change anything about your day if you could?
We wish we could have spent more time with each and every guest.
