1) If you could choose one, what was your favorite part of the wedding?

Aside from the obvious, BECOMING MRS. ROBERT SMITH!!!! My favorite moment from our wedding weekend was EVERY moment spent with our loved ones. We live in San Antonio now but we were born and raised in California so that is where we had our wedding. The smart thing to do was stay in a hotel close to the wedding venue and have our family and wedding party stay there as well. Every moment shared during that weekend was unforgettable because we don’t get to spend that sort of time with them anymore being that we all live in different states now.

2) Did you use WedPics for your wedding?  Tell us a little bit about why you chose to use Wedpics and how did it work out for you?

Yes, we used the WedPics app. We chose to use it because I’ve been to plenty events were the guests took photos that no one ever saw. So because my family is full of camera loving individuals, I knew they’d enjoy the idea and it would also give us the opportunity to see our wedding from our guests point of view. I am glad we went with the idea because we ended up with close to 500 pictures on the app alone and some of the photos taken were not captured by the photographer (who was great by the way) because of course she’s only one person and can only be in one place at a time so the app really worked out great!

3) What kind of personal touches did you add to your wedding?

One of the personal touches I admire most was when my father and I walked a little more than half way down the aisle to stop and allow me to join arms with my mother (she had surgery on her ankle earlier in 2013) so that she could also give me away to my now husband. We also had my husbands sister read a poem by Maya Angelo during the ceremony before I walked out. Oh and our caterer was a personal touch because it was not the typical wedding menu. We both love elements of Mexican food so we had an awesome caterer that also had a food truck cater our wedding.

4) If you could give one piece advice for future couples planning their wedding, what would that be?

My husband and I learned a lot during that process. It can be very stressful if you allow it. Try to eliminate stress at all cost. Remember that the goal is to become ONE so try not stress over the small things, listen to one another’s ideas, take a break from planning, make sure maintaining the relationship is the number one priority, and make it fun. The anticipation of knowing you are about about to marry your best friend is an amazing feeling. Don’t let unnecessary stress ruin that.

5) What traditions did you choose to use for your wedding and which ones did you go out of your way to leave out?

Some of the traditions we made sure were apart of our special day were the seating of the mothers, my husband not laying eyes on me until I walked down the aisle with my father (another tradition) and I wore a veil which I decided on 2 weeks before the wedding. Best decision ever. Traditions we left out were the “white dress” in which case I wore an ivory dress because I felt it looked better on my skin, the unity candle and the jumping of the broom. We didn’t feel it was necessary to do anything other than Get Married!
