A couple of weeks ago, I received an email from Mai telling me about her beautiful wedding and she asked if she could share it with the wonderful TBC readers.....I took one look at the photos and it just warmed my heart....such a loving couple and a charming wedding. Their wedding story was captured by amazing photography of Jon Koch. Mai and John wanted to share their most memorable moment of the day with us....Enjoy!
"I imagined our wedding day countless amount of times during our sixteen month engagement and I can honestly say that my daydreams didn't even come close to how the day really played out. We had such an amazing, wonderful, gorgeous, heartfelt day with loved ones. We enjoyed every moment and couldn't have asked for anything more! So far, the happiest day of my life. Everything went well and everyone had a wonderful time. The best advice I can give is to enjoy every second, every detail of this whole crazy process. In the end, it was all worth it because you are marrying your best friend, your soul-mate, your everything." Mai
And now John...."My favorite part of the day is also the most stressful. Our first meeting was in a few minutes and I could not stop sweating. I tried my best to remain calm and prepare myself to meet my bride. I knew that I had one chance to do this and the last thing I needed to do was look stressed out. As I was walking to our first meeting, I looked around and took time to take it all in. People were eating lunch, the sun was out, and a nice cool breeze was blowing. I stood there with a calm look on my face and I remember looking into the sky as if I were in a movie. Then I was told my bride was coming. I stood still and as she was walking up to me, I kept calm by imagining her walking up. As I turned around, I looked into her eyes and instantly everything we have done together flash before my eyes. I held her hand and tried my best not to cry." --John
