Finally Spring sprung in Missouri just in time for this absolutely beautiful April wedding! Matt and Elyse are absolutely perfect for each other. They didn't stop smiling during their wedding day and were completely filled with JOY. My heart was crying as they said their i dos and so happy that they are FINALLY husband and wife! I just couldn't wait to show off their breathtaking spring wedding
A view into their wedding day from their eyes!
What was the funniest part of your wedding day?
Elyse: Hearing the vivid retelling of how one of our groomsmen lost half his boutonniere on the party bus while Matt and I took the family pictures. Stripper pole - 1, Britt Kagay - 0.
Matt: My brothers' speeches! I definitely laughed the hardest when my brothers essentially roasted me at the reception.
What was one thing that you will remember forever?
Elyse: How purely happy we all were! I had a smile on my face the entire day, even during the happy tears. It really was perfect!
Matt: The look on Elyse's face when she was told she had 15 minutes left before the ceremony. It was a mix of surprise/anxiety and happiness.
Any advice for future couples?
Elyse: Find vendors you can trust (Jenee Mack!) and don't be afraid to ask for help from family and friends. Everyone wants to help make your day perfect!
Matt: Take a minute during all the craziness of the wedding day to stop, think and soak it in, even though it seems impossible.
