What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

Oh wow, all of it! When I walked down the beach for our ceremony with my dad was probably top favorite though. Everything I had ever pictured that moment to be was 100% what I imagined. From the ocean’s waves to the dreamy haze on the sand and the decorations, I felt like I was in a dream. The most perfect dream!
