how she did itWHAT INSPIRED YOU TO CREATE YOUR BEAUTIFUL DECOR?
Our decor was inspired by our wanting to pay tribute to our heritage, our family, and our love story. We wanted enough boutonnieres for each person in our family, but didn’t want to pay the exorbitant ship prices, so we made origami flowers instead! For the send off, we weren’t allowed to use anything that could disrupt the wildlife (meaning that rice, confetti, and bubbles were out of the question), so we went with the celtic tradition of wands with ribbon & bells. Making the flowers and wands was a great way to include our friends who weren’t able to join us for the cruise. The only feasible way we could think of to personalize our ceremony space was to customize our aisle runner. We were in love with the idea of having a timeline of our relationship through photos and quotes from our favorite songs, movies, and TV shows, so we incorporated all of it into our aisle runner. It was definitely worth all of the work we put into it!

WHAT WAS THE MOST MEMORABLE/FAVORITE MOMENT ABOUT YOUR WEDDING DAY?
We both loved dressing up for each other. It was such a treat to see him in his kilt, and he absolutely loved my big dress!

WHY WAS PHOTOGRAPHY IMPORTANT TO YOU AND WHY DID YOU CHOOSE SUN & SPARROW?
We chose Sun and Sparrow for so many reasons! First of all, both of us are artists. We knew that we needed a photography team who would not only capture our story accurately, but would create pieces of art that we would never tire of. We don’t want to simply flip through our wedding photo album each anniversary, we want to cherish our wedding day through photographic art. Second, we wanted a team that was personable; we really wanted to get along with a team that was going to be following us around all day! Finally, we needed a team that was willing to travel since we ended up getting married in Alaska. Hands down, Sun & Sparrow is the team that meets all of these needs. My only regret was that we didn’t our day filmed by them as well!

DO YOU HAVE ANY ADVICE FOR BRIDES WHO ARE CURRENTLY IN THE PLANNING PROCESS?
Don’t let anyone try to talk you out of what you and your fiancé want for your day! We loved every minute of it and had we tried to “make everyone happy” it wouldn’t have been as perfect as it was for us. We can’t imagine our wedding day being anything other than what it was.

WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF BEING MARRIED NOW?
Our favorite part of being married now is that we don’t have to correct people when they call us husband and wife! It simply feels right to call him my husband, and for him to call me his wife, as if this was the way it was always supposed to be.
