Glen and Sam, I am so blessed by your friendship, and can’t quite find the words to explain the gratitude I feel having been part of this day. It was a perfect beginning to what I know will be the happiest of marriages. Enjoy a few of my favorites! —js
What was the most memorable part of your wedding day?
Sam Says: So many moments- the first look with him (the way he looked at me) and the vows- the absolute best part. Everything was just so perfect and imperfect and lovely.
Glen Says: Watching my bride walk down the aisle. That’s the image that sticks in my mind. I started crying so I had to look at the sky and take a deep breath.
Jessica’s Take: The reception toasts. All of them. They were genuine and funny and sweet and as heartfelt as they come. (Read: I cried.)
What was your favorite detail of the wedding day?
Sam Says: My groom’s face!!!!! He was so handsome and perfect! I loved my earrings (!!!!), my flowers (!!!), and the setting (the pavilion was so pretty)!!!
Glen Says: Just the way Sam looked- the way the dress sat on her body with the pattern, and her face- after the wedding when we were taking pictures, Sam was looking over her shoulder and her profile was just perfect with the sunlight.
Jessica’s Take: I loved Sam’s bouquet of peonies (for her grandmother), her dress and the bridesmaids’ dresses, and all that was Natalie, the flower girl.
Any advice for other couples planning a wedding?
Sam Says: Hahahaha- lots! It’s an emotional day- be unapologetically YOU, and feel what you feel; it’s all okay! And truly, work with people you enjoy- they make the day so much better than you’ll realize! (Jessica and Marek have been in almost every conversation we’ve had about things being fun)!
Glen Says: The vendors are more important than you think- let the pros do their job and enjoy you’re moment. The cost is less important than the freedom you get from just enjoying your day.
What’s the best part of being married so far?
Sam Says: The feeling- I actually do feel differently as a wife now! It’s just a little, teeny tiny difference in me, but I feel more connected, more… special to my husband. Oh, I just love saying husband now; it’s just different!
Glen Says: Our daily lives and our situations aren’t really changing much, but I feel more… complete now.
