What common mistakes do you see couples making?
Not paying attention to where the sun will be in their ceremony. It's always good to make sure you won't be squinting in all your photos while saying your vows! :)
What's the best tip you have for a couple planning a wedding?
Always give yourself a little extra time , even if it's about 15 minutes to get a break right before the ceremony. It's nice to have extra time to relax rather than to be rushing all day.

What was the most memorable wedding you ever worked, and why?
I have two that are tied at the moment. Caroline & John and Sarah & John. Both of them were relaxed and having fun all day. They both had the best live bands that kept the crowd going all night. Most of all, their love radiated from every bit of their beings. Their family and friends' love for them was amazing. It was such a beautiful thing to watch. Every single moment was wonderful!
