[br]What was the most memorable moment of your day?
Amanda: Sitting in the grandstands with Alex during the reception for a few minutes while Bobbi and Mike took pictures. Beautiful scenery and time to relax and reflect on the the whole day and the new journey we were beginning!
Alex: The anticipation to seeing Amanda the first time. Hearing her voice, wondering how beautiful she looked, and then finally getting to see her.
[br] Any advice for future bride/grooms?
Amanda: Always focus on the big picture – you get to marry the love of your life and THAT’S the most important part!
Alex: Take a moment to make mental memories of what’s going on and the people who are there to celebrate with you. Don’t let it all slip by and not be able to remember anything!
[br]Funniest memory from your wedding day?
Amanda: Getting dressed at Keeneland with my bridesmaids, my mom and of course Bobbi!
Alex: The time I got to spend with my guy friends and the jokes and memories that were told since we all live across the country these days.
[br]If you could do it all over, would you change anything?
We can’t think of anything we would’ve changed. It was perfect and we are SO thankful to everyone involved!
[br]Where did you go on your honeymoon?
The Sandals at Great Exuma, Bahamas – HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
