If you could pick one moment that stands out to you as the best on your wedding day, what would it be? Our favorite part of the wedding day was when we walked back up the aisle as husband and wife!

During your wedding planning, what was your vision for your wedding day? I hoped to have a carefree day celebrating with family and friends. Most importantly, we wanted to share with others what Jesus has done in our lives.

What made you choose your venue(s) for your wedding day? I always tell Wil that Bogue Sound is my "favorite place to be" and when I am with him that there is "absolutely no where else I'd rather be." The Country Club of the Crystal Coast is the only place that I could imagine getting married (since the park down the road was too small!)

What was your First Dance song? Is there a special story behind it? Our first dance was Sara Evans- "I Could Not Ask For More." We chose this song because we are so thankful for one another.

What was one wedding planning decision that proved invaluable? (For example: Hiring a coordinator? A vendor who was particularly helpful? Having a checklist? Making a budget?) We were so fortunate to find the best vendors- Heather and Chris at Crystal Coast Tent and Event heard my hodgepodge of ideas and turned them into a beautiful reality. Barb at CCCC was so helpful throughout the wedding planning. And, of course, my best decision was to work with Cindy and Victor! The photographs for the day captured our memories perfectly! We also hired Brian Sibley as our videographer and have enjoyed reliving the day through video.
