Unforgettable Expressions Bonnet Island Estate Wedding Photographer had a chance to catch up with Kaci and Craig and ask them some questions about planning their wedding, wedding day surprises, jitters and how they are feeling now.
What was your most anticipated part of the day?
K: The moment I would walk down the aisle and see Craig waiting for me.
C: See Kaci in her dress
Did anything unexpected happen? What was the outcome?
The weather. Remnants of hurricane Ian put a wrench in our plans for an outdoor ceremony and pictures. Everyone came together and did everything they could to still proved a beautiful ceremony and cocktail hour. We were both just happy to finally be getting married that we didn’t let a little thing like the weather get us down.
What ended up being your favorite part of the day?
K: The first look. Getting to see Craig for the first time that day in my dress and getting to have our private moment together before the whirlwind of the day really got started.
What advice would you give to future couples for their wedding?
Everything will go by so fast (a lot faster than you expect) so try to save a few moments for the two of you to savor each moment.
Were you nervous? How did you squash the nerves?
K: Not really, I was just excited. The only time I got nervous was just before walking down the aisle because all eyes would be on me and I was able to get over that by focusing on Craig.
C: I was nervous about our first dance… we had a choreographed dance.. How to get over it? The only thing better than one beer is three.
What was the biggest surprise on your wedding day?
Having to move the ceremony from outside to inside.
What was your wedding inspiration?
What song did you walk down the aisle to?
Can’t Help Falling in Love – (instrumental)
What song played for your first dance? I Got You – Jack Johnson
Tell me about some of your favorite wedding details and how you came up with them!
K: I am a huge Harry Potter fan. One of my bridesmaids is as well and she made paper flowers out of the books for her wedding last year which I loved! So we ended up making arrangements for the cocktail hour.
C: The table numbers. I custom designed them to correlate with some of our favorite fishing spots – especially since I was asked about going on a blind date with Kaci on a fishing trip, it was perfect.
Any advice for those couples planning their wedding now?
Discuss what each of your expectations are early on and what details are most important to each of you.
How did you feel at the end of the day?
Happy and tired
What are you most looking forward to as a married couple?
Knowing that whatever comes next we will be together
What did you like most about working with Unforgettable Expressions Wedding Photographer?
Andrew and Cary were so wonderful and really worked hard to get the perfect details. They were not overbearing or pulling us away from our night but seamless worked around us to get the pictures throughout the evening.
