  • Q. Best memory from your wedding day? (Response from both Bride and Groom)

    A. Oh boy, to pick just one best memory is hard! The whole day and just getting married was my best memory, haha. Some highlights though would be the added weather elements, our first dance that Matt taught me, our photoshoot at dusk with the truck and commentary from a family friend, eating the whole slice of cake that we cut from the top layer unknowingly, the amazing sparkler tunnel, Matt playing his guitar and singing, and of course all the awesome dancing and lip sync! It was a phenomenal day and couldn't have been better! -Krysten

    Seeing it all come together, from the ceremony to the reception. It all just flowed into an awesome day! But my highlight was getting onto the dance floor with my wife and all my best friends until the DJ left and the dance floor was being broken down underneath us. -Matt

  • Q. Where are your going on honeymoon? What are you most excited about? (Response from both Bride and Groom)

    A. We are going to Alaska!

    I'm super excited for all the adventures we have planned, so again too hard to pick just one, but I'll go with either flight seeing over Denali or sea kayaking in Kenai Fjords. -Krysten

    To go fly fishing in a secluded area in Alaska with wildlife all around us and maybe even fighting off bears for the fish! -Matt

  • Q. What advice do you have for future brides and grooms? (Response from both Bride and Groom)

    A. I would say, start planning early if you want to do a lot of DYI and enlist volunteers! It adds up quickly and time passes just as fast. But definitely worth all the hard work! -Krysten

    Don't bother with bow ties that you have to tie yourself. And don't blink because the entire wedding goes so fast and you don't want to miss anything! -Matt
