5. What is one piece of advice you always give to brides?
Remember to soak in the moment. Your wedding day can be stressful at times, but it is important for both you and your partner to really enjoy the day. Take it all in and remember to look around at everyone who is able to share the day as it may be one of the only times all of the people you love are in the same room.
