Rebecca & Aaron: Opposites Attract
July 13, 2013 - Weddings
She is a vegetarian... he IS NOT.
She has lots of tattoos and piercings... he DOES NOT.
She is a photographic artist.... he is a police officer.
But they both have something in common... they love each other crazy.
Her Favorite Moment of the Day:
"Our written vows to each other. Neither of us is super mushy, so it was really nice to be able to tell Aaron how I felt about us and our future in front of all our friends and family."
Becky tears-up while rehearsing the vows she has written for Aaron.
His Favorite Moment of the Day:
"When I first got to see her walk down the aisle, because I got to see how beautiful she was."
Aaron's Favorite Photos of the Day:
"I like the photos of us in front of the barn because it is very-very old and we are very-very new."
"They are super cute and I'm not fake smiling. Plus the story behind them is really cute."
The moral of this story:
Trespassing is cool kids. And as long as it results in a last-minute adventure and good photos it's probably worth it despite rainclouds, running across country highways and the possiblility that the owner of said location probably has a shotgun.
You can't have a southern wedding without pecan pies!
Advice from the Bride and Groom for other couples:
"Relax. Enjoy the day. It goes by quickly, I PROMISE if something is out of place, you won't even notice and neither will your guests. Rain happens. Plans fall through sometimes. Look online for ideas, make what you can, enlist friends if you can't. Don't spend hundreds of dollars on stuff that gets thrown away. Invest in your dress, his suit, and the photography. Everything else is details."
"Trust your photographer! They know what makes you look good. Look at wedding blogs for ideas, but remember that every bride and every wedding is different- if you're 5'0, you aren't likely to look exactly like the model-bride you saw. Do a first look. Some of our favorite photos are from there, we were less stressed and still looked fresh since it was all humid and such."
