How did you two meet? We met at Cru Wine Bar when we were both out for a mutual friend's birthday party. We talked for most of the night and Matt sent Elizabeth a Facebook message the next day. Our first date was 5 days later and we've been together ever since :)
What is the best memory of your wedding day? It rained right before the start time of our outdoor Fall wedding. Decor was blowing over and guests were pulling out umbrellas. We just knew that everything would work out and almost as soon as Elizabeth walked out of the bridal cottage to head down the aisle, the sky seemed to clear and a rainbow appeared. We spotted the rainbow at the same time and it was a beautiful sign on our amazing day!
What is some advice you would give to other couples as they plan their wedding day? Let other people help you out when they offer and just try to take every detail of the day in. Having talented photographers (Drake Busch) and videographers is so important too. That is how you can relive your beautiful event. Where did you go on your honeymoon? We stopped in Iceland for 3 days on our way to Venice, Italy for a 7 day Mediterranean Cruise. Our cruise ports were in Croatia, Turkey and Greece. We would highly recommend a cruise to any honeymooners! It was so nice to experience multiple countries and be able to leave our bags in one spot for a week. A couple of highlights were riding dune buggies on the Croatian cliffs and experiencing the picturesque beauty of Santorini, Greece. We also stopped for a day and night in Paris on the way home. What an amazing 2 weeks!
