How did you meet each other?

Emily and I have known each other for 20 years. Our parents know each other through work and so our families spent some summers together. We've always been good friends

What was the best memory of your wedding day?

Ben’s favorite memory: Seeing Emily during my first look. I hadn’t talked to her since the night before. Emily’s my best friend so it was amazing to start the day with our first look.

Emily’s favorite memory: This was a tie! Listening to my dad's speech at the wedding reception literally brought me (and a lot of other people) to tears. But also, playing the "shoe game" with Ben, and having it confirm just how well we know each other was fun, and funny, and just made me so happy.

What would be some advice you would give to future couples as they plan their wedding day?

Ben’s Advice: Just because you don’t want to complete a task doesn’t mean your partner wants to do it. It’s a team effort, so constant collaboration on different tasks is key to success!

Emily’s Advice: Take advantage of the help that your friends and family offer to you! Choose a few things that are important to each of you, and prioritize those things. Everything else will work out,

Where did you go on your honeymoon?  
We haven’t taken our honeymoon yet. We will be going to Phuket Thailand in late September. We will be staying at Marriott’s Phuket Beach Club. I imagine we will visit the local temples, go in the canoes, do an elephant Siam Safari, snorkel, hike and visit many of the beaches.

"We were extremely impressed with the flexibility and strong communication that Drake and his partner had. Whether it was a phone call or email, Drake was highly responsive. Furthermore, Drake and his partner where very involved throughout the entire day while capturing some of our best moments! We were extremely happy to have Drake record our wedding and we would sign him again and again!"
