Carolyn: Not at all. Every time I replay the day in my head, it’s everything I wanted and more. I’m so happy we decided on couple photos together before the ceremony. It gave us time exclusively to ourselves where we could see each other and exchange notes that we had written to each other the night before. And to anyone on the fence about seeing one another before, it absolutely in no way changes that moment of walking down the aisle. If anything, it may have made it even better. I also love that we went with a day-time wedding. Everything was pretty much wrapped up by five o’clock and by six, we were on our way to Grand Rapids for a nice quite dinner just the two of us. It was the perfect ending to a perfect day.

Bruce: Thinking about our wedding day for the past few weeks, I don’t think I would change a thing. It was a great afternoon wedding. I was able to leave my own wedding with my wife at 6pm and go have dinner just the two of us. It is hard to change the best day of your life.

Carolyn: Walking down the aisle. Even with seeing each other beforehand for first-look photos, nothing detracted from that moment. The waiting with my father at the top of the hill, the music starting, walking towards Bruce, trying not to trip, the big smile on my face and trying to steady my breath. Every part of that walk will be what I remember best.

Bruce: Being blown away with how beautiful my wife was. I was on cloud 9. She looked like she came right out of a magazine. Having seen her walk down the isle I could not hold my self back as tears came streaming down my cheeks. Sharing the moment with loved ones and friends. Knowing that my wife and me have touched so peoples lives for them to come to see us join our hands in marriage was a wonderful experience. The weather was perfect which gave the environment a tranquil feeling.

Carolyn: Once the ceremony began, we both started getting a bit emotional, and while we did a pretty good job at keeping the tears away, the sniffles…not so much. My nose would not stop running and I basically paused the ceremony and retrieved a tissue from my mother. I think everyone thought that was pretty funny. And I think that dash of silliness represented our true personalities very nicely.

Bruce: Carolyn was getting emotional during the middle part of the service and needed a tissue. When the efficient asked the best man for a tissue he panicked and gave her the rings instead. It made me laugh a little to know that he was nervous to stand up in front of the procession.

My wife and I wanted to explore Oregon. And what better way to do that is to backpack and hike the entire state. We rented a van and traveled over a thousand miles through some of the most breathtaking country we have ever seen. The two of us backpacked and camped along the Pacific Coast, Willamette Valley, Crater Lake, Mt. Hood, and the Columbia River Gorge. It was a honeymoon sourced on cliff bars, freeze dried food, great cheese and sixty dollar bottles of wine. I couldn’t have had a more memorable trip.
