Meet Mary, she’s way cute. 🙂All brides should wear shoes that aren’t white… it should be some sort of requirement! Meanwhile…Dan’s shoes weren’t nearly as fancy… but I bet they were more comfortable!Uhm okay… you just went from “cute” to freaking GORGEOUS! Mary, you are so Gaga. 😉 Oh and that bouquet, Mary’s mom is a florist/wedding planner and did it all. This is possibly the most gorgeous bouquet I’ve ever seen. Ever. Holy huge bridal party batman! Aren’t their dresses fun!?
I don’t know where that backdrop for their ceremony came from but it’s awesome!Love this. 😀Mary is one of four girls… four girls who happen to be incredible women. The first three ladies on the bottom row with the dark hair… there they are!And now there is a granddaughter… meet Jagger. How badass is that name?! Angie, you can’t be mad when someday she looks at you and says, “Look mom, you can’t always get what you want…” I’m hilarious I tell ya! Love the mis-matched dresses!Hot tamales!Morgan, Jen and Casey win for best wedding party entrance of all time.
And for the biggest tear jerker of a toast of all time… that hands down goes to Mary’s dad Larry! He wrote her a song and sang it while his wife and daughters stood by his side (that’s Mary’s cousin ((I think)) holding the piece of paper). Everyone, to include yours truly, was in a huge pile of tears. Larry, you win at life!Our favorite. ❗ + ❓Oh hellooooo yoga instructor! That jump on the left, it started prettier than it ended. 😉Loved this party!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?
mary: Well, of COURSE seeing my husband for the first time as I walked down the aisle. It was a huge rush seeing all of my family and friends as I was walking. There is nothing like that! Also, when my dad sang to me in front of everyone, a song that he wrote himself. It was so sweet. There wasn’t a dry eye in the place. It was so personal and took so much courage on his part. My entire family (my mom and my 3 sisters) then joined me and my dad in a circle in front of all of our friends and family.
dan: 1. The song from Mary’s dad sang. 2. Mary walking down the aisle. 3. Singing “Back Where I Come From” by Kenny Chesney with my groomsmen, it’s our favorite song!
Any advice for future bride/grooms?
mary: Slow down and remember everything. This day will flash by in an instant. Try to soak in all of the details, the small stuff. Hire an amazing photographer to capture EVERYTHING (hint hint, Bobbi and Mike). You’re damn right! ;)
Funniest memory from your wedding day?
mary: The toasts were pretty hilarious. I knew Darren would roast Dan, but I never expected my sweet, innocent, little sister would let me have it!! It was hilarious…Good job, guys! The heat was pretty hilarious. Standing up on the alter and feeling beads of sweat dripping off of the tip of my nose. Yikes! Also, my sister and I performing all of the choreography to Lady Gaga’s “Bad Romance.” We nailed it! I’ll confirm that! Nailed it!
If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
mary: I wouldn’t change a thing. When I think back on my wedding, I see a fairytail; a very whimsical day full of friends, family, beautiful flowers, good food and cold drinks. I see visions of people smiling, laughing, dancing (and sweating). It was perfect. You could see and feel the love that was put into every single detail.
Where did you go on your honeymoon?
Puerto Plate, Dominican Republic
