What was your most anticipated moment of the day?
The easiest answer would be walking down the aisle. The day of our rehearsal I became so nervous that I would fall or mess up saying my vows. I was panicking so much, which is very much unlike me I eventually calmed down a bit. To my surprise the time it came to walk down the aisle I became totally carefree and the nerves completely left.
What was one of your favorite moments?
One of my favorite moments from the wedding day were the moments with my Dad. We have been extremely close my entire life, so it was always a joke that he would be crying more than anyone else while walking me down the aisle. Our first look was so much fun- even though he had seen me in my wedding dress hundreds of time by that point. He helped me pick it out and went to my alterations appointments with me. Before we walked down the aisle and my music started playing he gave me some advice and we took a deep breathe and walked. It was such a great moment that I will never forget.
Why did you choose your venue?
I wanted the wedding to feel very intimate – this is why Race and Religious was the perfect setting. At Race every corner you turn there is another beautiful thing. When people left our wedding I wanted them to think “wow that wedding was really Bella and Sean’s”
How did you feel at the end of the day?
I felt so happy. During the wedding I kept saying to Sean “why do people say this day goes by so fast” because I felt like I soaked in every moment and felt just like it was the best day of my life.
