Desiree & Jeremy Wedding

I love you. I know. 

Modern + Star Wars + Navy + Glitter 
August 26th, 2017

What was your most anticipated part of the day 
Desiree – I was most anticipating the ceremony. I was pretty relaxed in the limo on the way to the ceremony and I knew I was ready to take the giant step in life with Jeremy. It was a bit hard leaving Jeremy the night before and knowing I wouldn’t see him again until I was walking down the aisle about to become his wife, which I think also made me anticipate that the most.
Jeremy – The ceremony. I was nervous.

Did anything unexpected happen? What was the outcome?
Desiree – The hair and makeup artists, I thought, we’re going to be doing our hair and makeup on a mobile beauty bar (a bus) and that’s not what happened. We all squeezed into our hotel room which was actually better I think because we were all together the entire time of getting ready, even though it was a bit of a snuggle.
Jeremy – Not all speeches were exactly as we had thought they might go, but you can force people what to say.

What ended up being your favourite part of the day?
Desiree- Ceremony was by far my favourite. It was so emotional and special and moments that I know I will never forget the rest of my life. Having all our guests stand and be a part of the ceremony was so special. My other favourite part was going to do a few photos with Jeremy and I. It was the only part of the day we got to be alone until we headed back to the hotel at the end of the night, and I think it was so important that we got those 20 minutes. Jeremy – Finally being married to Desiree after all the planning and stress that went into the day.

In your own words describe how you felt during the most special moments of the day. IE: Getting ready, during the ceremony, right before you said “I do”
Desiree – Getting ready: I was feeling put off, because the hair and makeup had “changed”, my hair wasn’t how it was in the trial so I was feeling off, however, my girls that I had reminded me that no one but me knew what my trail hair was, and we all got to be together so they calmed me, and the champagne helped too I’m sure. So I started to just get excited but I was also just wanted to get ready so we could go because I wanted to get married haha. The limo ride was good on the way, my bridesmaids kept asking me how I was doing if I was nervous etc and I felt great. I was happy and calm. During the ceremony – the first part of the ceremony was so emotional and amazing, when we were standing on stage though, it was really hot under the lights and it felt like our pastor was talking forever. Once our pastor came on the stage and we started the official parts of the ceremony, it suddenly didn’t feel as hot, and we read our vows and did our ring exchange and it was just a feeling I don’t think you can describe unless you’ve married your best friend. I was so excited to read our vows and make it all official. Excited I guess would be my main word. Jeremy – getting ready – Happy and excited about what was happening glad to be surrounded by my friends and family. Ceremony – Right before the ceremony I was feeling nervous and excited. Right before I do’s and stuff I was feeling nervous and sweaty and anxious for it be done because I didn’t want to feel that way anymore. I was ready to enjoy the day instead of feeling nervous.

What was your wedding inspiration?
\
Desiree & Jeremy – My favourite colour is pink, Jeremy is blue so we went for blush and navy as they look great together and so do we. Also added some gold pieces to give a bit of sparkle because I am pretty girlie and sparkles are awesome. We had some StarWars attributes because we both love Star Wars. So I guess we were our inspiration. We also just wanted everything to be simple, romantic and relaxed and everyone to have a good time and from what we hear, we succeeded.

What song did you walk down the aisle to?
Parents, Jeremy and groomsmen – Your song by Elton John, Bridesmaids – Make you feel my love by Adele and Desiree How long will I love you by Ellie Goulding

What song played during your first dance?
Danny’s song by Loggins and Mesina

How did you feel at the end of the day?
Desiree- Exhausted yet so alert and still excited. I was so tired when I tried to sleep but my brain just kept replaying the moments of the day.
Jeremy – Whirlwind of emotions

What advice would you give to future couples for their wedding?
Desiree – take your time in planning, do as much in advance as you can to eliminate stress right before and know that not every little thing will go exactly to plan, but really, you will be the only one who knows that and it will still be the best day ever.
Jeremy – When the day comes, just go with it, whatever happens, happens; there’s not much you can do about it.

What did you like most about working with us on your wedding day?
You guys are so easy going and fun loving. It was easy and fun and you guys are just so on the ball and knew what we wanted and what we didn’t want. If you hadn’t brought it up, we wouldn’t have done photos just Jeremy and I and that was one of the best parts of the day. You guys just helped to relieve stress from us and we do not know if I can say thank you enough for that. We liked how you were both involved and easy to be around. No awkward moments!
