Vows are one of the most important parts of the wedding ceremony and for good reason: your wedding vows are the promises you make from your wedding day to eternity. You make them publicly, which makes them 100x sweeter (and possibly nerve-wrecking for shy public speakers). And, you don’t want to mess them up. That’s why we’ve put together a list of eight most important wedding vow mistakes to avoid so yours go off without a hitch. We’re covering some things you’ve never thought of before, along with some tricks you won’t want to miss. Enjoy!

10 Most Emotional Wedding Photos

Editor’s Note – 5.8.16: Hi, loves + Happy Mother’s Day! We published this post awhile back but thought it would be a great fit for today. Wait until you see the photos with the mother of the bride, especially #4 — it’s one of my favorites! We wish all moms a wonderful Mother’s Day!

Today, we’re talking about emotional wedding photos: those real, tear-jerking candid moments captured on film. While planning your wedding, one thing remains certain: your day will be packed full of emotionally-charged, fleeting moments in time. Today, we want you to take a moment to put down the peonies, step away from the mason jars, and put all your stress on hold. Remind yourself why you’re getting married in the first place: love.

My wedding was seven years ago, but I remember the details like it was yesterday. My sister woke me up early that morning with a super enthusiastic, “Happy Wedding Day, Bride! Wake up… the big day is here!” (Seriously, best MOH in the history of ever.) I remember my mom and sister helping me get ready, putting on my veil (my mom’s, worn on her own wedding day), and peeking through windows in anticipation as family and friends gathered. I remember my dad seeing me in my gown for the first time, our father-daughter chat before Canon in D began, and seeing my groom at the end of the aisle once the doors opened. Pure magic. These significant moments made my wedding day extra special, and your moments will be unique, too. Make sure you take time out to enjoy them. (Also, make sure your photographer is ready to capture those candid shots – I’m glad ours did!) Today, we’ve gathered up ten of the most emotional wedding photos. We hope it helps you create your own list of must-have wedding photos and remind you of what’s truly important. So, without further adieu, let’s begin…
