This GORGEOUS DIY (Do-IT-Yourself) Wedding was INCREDIBLE! I can't tell you how much fun these two are! And I love how much they love each other. Such a fantastic day. I LOVE all the details these two put into their wedding,... absolutely adorable. I am honored to have been their photographer... aren't the so cute together??
/////// I asked the bride a few questions before the big day and this is what she had to say: //////
How did you two meet?
"We met through a mutual friend in college at the gym on campus where I (Marissa) worked at the membership desk."
Who proposed? What was your proposal like?
"Matt proposed during our summer Euro trip. It was such an amazing proposal, on the sky tram in Barcelona. He was so nervous he forgot to put the ring on my finger, instead handed to me saying "here"."
Why did you choose your venue(s)?
"I've always wanted to get married in my grandmothers backyard. There are so many memories and so much history in that yard and I knew it would be so special and meaningful to get married there."
What are you looking forward to the most about your wedding day?
"I'm looking forward for our family and friends to all be together. I can't wait to see everyone's smiles. It's going to be a huge party that I never want to forget!"
