"[The best thing about our wedding] was vowing to spend forever with the love of my life and my best friend. But aside from that, the times that we got to spend alone were probably my favorite parts of the day. After the ceremony, we were able to go back to our room (there was a villa on-site), and eat some dinner before joining the guests at the reception. For the first time that day, we were completely alone and got to soak in that we were really married. I think that was probably my favorite 20 minutes of the day. As far as things that our guests cared about, the layer of the cake that was flavored like apple pie was FABULOUS. It had actual chunks of apple in it. There was a shrimp and grits station that was just out of this world. And my cousin’s 3 year old son made his way up onto the stage and the band gave him a harmonica, and he was the absolute star of the show for several songs." -Anne Marie
