Enter Drill Sergeant Bobbi… though with a smile…!!! We walked back inside and I looked at my phone and I still had 12 seconds to spare. BOOOOOM!

What was the most memorable moment of your day?

Trish:  My favorite memory, by far, was our first look.  We had talked about it before the wedding day and our prediction of how we would each react.  He was so convinced that he wouldn’t be nervous or emotional for our first look and I was scared that I would not be able to keep it together.  We literally could not have been more wrong.  I was (oddly) very calm and Karl was the complete opposite.  He was 110% FREAKING OUT.  When I walked up behind him he was actually shaking because he was so nervous, and I think he fought off some tears (which he will deny forever, but we have pictures Karl!)… Tears or no tears, it was definitely my most favorite moment of the entire day.  

Karl: My most memorable moment was also our first look, but I refute all of the above allegations… Alright, maybe it was a little nerve-racking, but how else was I supposed to react when I was waiting to see the most beautiful future wife EVER!!!   

Any advice for future bride/grooms?

Have so much fun… we loved being engaged!!  Wedding planning was stressful (duh)… but the most stressful times turned into some of our favorite memories because it was a reminder that we make a good team (translation: groom talks bridezilla down from the ledge) J  You’ll make a billion decisions together about the wedding, and some are more important than others, but in the end they all add up to an unforgettable day that is uniquely yours.

Funniest memory from your wedding day?

Mommom (Trish’s grandma) doing The Wobble with all of her grandchildren!

If you could do it all over, would you change anything?

Not a single thing!

Where did you go on your honeymoon?

We cruised the Caribbean!  Belize was by far our favorite place and we can’t wait to go back!
