Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

Travis: The few minutes before the ceremony started while I was standing (with only with my groomsmen) the feeling of excitement I had because of the rush of anticipation for what was about to happen in my life.

Tenille: After getting ready and being surrounded by my most favorite ladies, standing there (with my father getting ready to walk to my future husband) with this overwhelming confidence just knowing I was where I was supposed to be. OUR FUTURE- HELL YEAH!!!

Both: Together taking a moment away from everyone and standing on the balcony of the barn and watching everything we had planned come together and couldn't be more perfect, more US!

From the pay it forward department, the best piece of advice WE received was for the two of us to step away from all the hoopla (for at least 10 minutes) and enjoy that very moment. We enjoyed watching all our closest friends and family celebrate our life.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

Do exactly what YOU want because in 40 or 50 years when you two are looking back on your wedding day thats all you will remember (not that person that wanted the linen napkins).
