Interview with the Bride:

Maria: Why did you choose the Air Force base as your wedding venue location?
Megan: We chose the Air Force base as our location and venue for convenience and price. It was such a blessing that everything was in one place including the hotel since everyone was traveling from out of state.
Maria: What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
Megan: My favorite part of my wedding day was seeing Beau for the first time at the end of the aisle and when I gave Ben and Hannah their gifts during the ceremony.
Maria: What was your biggest obstacle, looking back?
Megan: The biggest obstacles that we faced I think were doing everything on our own, we didn’t hire a coordinator and all of our family and bridal party lived out of town so it made for some stressful times.
Maria: Anything you would change?
Megan: Looking back I think I would have hired you for more hours, apparently we missed Hannah performing Frozen for everyone at the reception while we were taking pictures on the flight line and all the kids dancing their butts off. I also would have been more organized with the shot list. There are some that I would have liked to get that I didn’t think about until after. I also would have made Beau and I a to go plate of food. I scarfed the food down so fast that by the end of the night I was starving and everyone keeps telling us that the food was awesome but I honestly don’t remember.
Maria: What is your advice to brides currently planning their wedding?
Megan: My advice for brides is take your time planning, it’s YOUR day, people will have to realize that. Do what you want. Don’t sweat the small stuff. Enjoy the day! Take a moment before you walk down the aisle to take everything in. I did that with my dad on the firetruck before we got out and it helped and calmed me down.
