We celebrated our 6 month wedding anniversary this past week, and I couldn’t be happier, or prouder, to be Pat’s wife! To say our wedding day was perfect and magical is truly an understatement. The amount of love that we felt from our family and friends, near and far, was truly indescribable. I have always been the girl that would dream about her wedding day, and my dreams finally became a reality. Seeing Pat during our first look, for the first time the day of our wedding, was by far the most emotional experience I’ve ever felt. That feeling alone reassured me that my decision to marry Pat was the best choice I’ve ever made in my life. I am beyond excited to share some of our favorite shots from our wedding day with you! They are so special, and near and dear to our hearts, I couldn’t keep them from you any longer. Here’s a peak of August 12, 2016, the day I became Mrs. Myer.
Pat and I watched our wedding trailer for 3 days straight when we first got it. We often watch our trailer and can’t help but get teary eyed reliving the day. I honestly can’t imagine not having video footage to look back and remember our special day! Don’t get me wrong, I love a good photo (duh), but there’s something about video footage that just takes you back to that moment. If you’re in the New York/New Jersey area, I HIGHLY recommend Live Picture Studios for your wedding videography, they are truly talented at what they do, and we couldn’t be happier with our wedding trailer. What I love so much about LPS, is that our wedding trailer was a short story, with every piece fitting together perfectly. I’m sharing below for ya’ll!

Advice for the Bride-to-Be
If you do nothing else, enjoy every last minute of your engagement and wedding day. It goes SO SO fast (like blink of an eye fast), and you never get it back – so make it memorable. Wedding planning can feel endless and daunting for so many brides. I’m a planner by nature, and the process got extremely overwhelming for me towards the end. Just remember, there is and end in sight, and your hard work does pay off. I look back on our day, and there’s not a detail that I didn’t have my hand in planning. The more organized you are the days and months leading up to the wedding, the more relaxed you will be on your actual wedding day. My parting piece of advice, bring a checkbook or got to the ATM before your wedding day – let’s just say I spent about 30 minutes of my wedding day taking out $3k worth of cash from the ATM, in $100 intervals (yes I got charged every single time too).
SOOO… What questions do ya’ll want answered about your engagement, wedding day, or simply being a bride-to-be? I’m no expert, but I do feel like I have a ton to share. Let me know in the comments below! I’m going to continue wedding posts throughout 2017 sharing all the details from my bridesmaid dresses, to the my favorite wedding Etsy shops, so stay tuned! 😉
