These two are crazy cute! I was so excited to celebrate May day with them (how appropriate), I knew that their wedding was going to be filled with wonderful surprises, and was it ever! There was so much talent in the room, and a whole lot of love. Every detail was so personal, you couldn't help but feel special and all bubbly inside just watching it all unfold. I have no doubt that their marriage will be just as sweet and wonderful as this wedding day, I am so glad to have been a part of it. Congrats Elizabeth and Alex!

Q&A with the bride and groom:
What was the most memorable moment of your day? Elizabeth: I couldn't pick just one, but I would say that the most memorable aspect of the wedding was that everyone we love was in one room together celebrating with us.
What was your favorite detail? Elizabeth: the music
Funniest memory from your wedding day? Elizabeth: Mitch's (the best man) speech/performance
Any advice for future brides/grooms? Elizabeth: don't sweat the small stuff; plan an event that speaks to you as a couple.
If you could do it all over, would you change anything? Elizabeth: no
Where did you go on your honeymoon? Elizabeth: We didn't actually take a real honeymoon, but had a mini-moon in Stillwater, MN - we went to pick out our new dishes from the St. Croix River Valley Pottery Festival.
