- What they saidWhat was the most memorable moment of your day?Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Beth: So hard to decide! Seeing Franco when I entered the church was one of my favorite moments of the entire day. I was so nervous leading up it, but when I saw him, I was able to relax and enjoy. Our Dads and siblings gave pretty amazing speeches which made me choke up. I was not expecting that, but really appreciated it. I had a great time on the dance floor. The room was beautiful and the band was awesome. They played so many good songs it was hard to take a break!
Franco: Too many: Seeing Beth walk down the isle for the first time with her chosen wedding dress. Taking pictures at Millennium Park! Enjoying the day with friends and family from both sides. The food, music, and getting to play a song with the band. Dancing with my mom and Beth and I putting our dance classes to good use for our first dance as a married couple.Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Beth: I was told it goes by so quickly and it really does! Just relax and enjoy the celebrations. Remember, it’s all of your favorite people in one room and they are here to celebrate YOU and your HUSBAND! Have fun!
Franco: Eat a good breakfast and get ready early so that all you have to do is wait to be told what to do next and enjoy the ride.What were your songs?
Beth: My mom got our Chihuahua, Georgia, a bridesmaid dress. Seeing her all dressed up when we were getting ready was very cute.
Franco: Learning that a lot of men cried (myself included) at the wedding ceremony and reception.If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
