The Unity Candle – Photography by Jacquelynn Buck
As Matt and I were planning the wedding, our one goal was to make the celebration feel very personalized. We have always shared a love for video games and Japanese animation and made sure to include those elements in our decor. Even though the wedding was elegant, we still were able to tip a subtle hat to the things that have brought us together. Whether it was our Totoro cake topper, our Kingdom Hearts grooms cake or the Nintendo elements at the photo booth, our geeky side still felt at home at our wedding.
My advice for brides is: In the months leading up to your wedding, you will have to make a thousand decisions. Some of those may seem like the most important things in the universe and some not so much. But here’s the thing: all those details that you’ve obsessed over won’t even matter during the wedding. Seriously, you won’t even see them. The whole night goes by in a blur, and the best thing you can do is to plan as much as you can up to a point, and then let it go. What matters MOST is that at the end of the night, you’re going to walk away with a lot of love from your guests, and a spouse on your arm.
