Chelsea’s favorite memory from her wedding day
We didn’t do a first look, because I wanted the first time we saw each other to be as I was walking in. And man…it was the best decision. Entering the chapel and seeing TJ already in tears had me dying. When we saw each other, he smiled so big and started sobbing, so I started squinching my face up to keep from crying, too. I had ALL THE FEELS. It was the best moment of my life, hands down. Oh, and having our dog Donut be in the wedding. Dogs in teeny Dog of Honor bandanas = life.
TJ’s favorite memory from his wedding day
Seeing her walk to the chapel. I could see her and her dad through the window, walking from their building to ours, before she even started down the aisle. I loved that moment. I was tearing up before that, but that’s when I started crying. And us seeing each other for the first time. That was my other favorite moment.
Advice for couples planning their wedding day?
Don’t sweat the small stuff, and don’t get upset if some things don’t go as planned. Because something, I promise you, will go wrong or not be quite the way you wanted. Quite a few things about our day weren’t how I envisioned, but it was still absolutely perfect because at the end of the day, you are married to your best friend and are being celebrated by your closest friends and family. That’s all that matters. It is just Day 1 of the rest of your lives together, and so many more perfect days are to come. Oh, and get a BOMB photographer and cake vendor. Because photos are all you have left after it’s all over. And because everyone loves cake. Make it a good cake.
