1) Pictures of both groom and bride getting ready, bride walking down the the isle, exchanging rings and saying I do!

2) We decided to get married at the court house just the 2 of us.  We didn't want to spend a ton on a wedding when we could use the money for much more needed things!

I think my dream wedding would of been on a beach. With just a handful of my favorite people. Then honeymoon there at the beach. I love the beach but got married in February so it was inside a church. But we still had a beautiful wedding blizzard of 1978.  thanks for the giveaway.


My wedding day was in my parents back yard...special pictures are having each family ,uncles,grandparents,sibley's, together.My special picture was with my Dad....he has passed away.Betsy

My wedding was special special because it not only joined two best friends but it was also held at my grandparents house.  The flowers that we had were home grown in their backyard.  It was a day that I will never forget.

#1 I think it is important to get group photos with as much family as you can.

4) I just love seeing a slide show of the couple as they were kids growing up. Especially fun for those who didn't know them as children...

First off thank you for this chance!  Family pictures, the mother-son dance, all the love, all the crazy dancing. My dream wedding would be any kind if I was blessed enough to find a partner...a fun time...and I cant say what has happened at my wedding because I haven't been married for over 24 yrs...again thanks  I love your books..God Bless You & have a great day

2. We had a cowboy themed wedding and all the men wore hats and cowboy boots.  My hubby wore spurs that jangled when he walked down the aisle. :)

My dad and I had a running joke of a stuffed purple kangaroo, I was VERY surprised to see it sitting at the alter with the pastor.

I love the cameras that people now sit at the tables and the candid fun shots, not the ones of the wedding cake - everyone takes those but the fun ones. The bride losing her shoe, the groom special moment with a child, two hands connected in love.

I think the most important pictures to have are of the Bride and Groom and Wedding party, of course, but also family members and loved ones who shared that special day with you.   It is wonderful to go back and look at pictures and see loved ones who have since gone on to heaven.   It is hard not to get 'caught up' with everything looking right and going right, but it is important to spend a bit of time with the loved ones who attended and made that day so special just by being there! 

I think it's important to have pictures of everything -  the wedding party and family, the ceremony, the reception. The day can be a bit of a blur for the bride, and the pictures capture all of the memories.

I had a happy tear run down my face during the ceremony and my groom wiped it away and that is something I will always
