After the wedding, Karyn had this to say to all future brides:

Q. What was your favorite part of your wedding day?
A. My favorite part was walking into the church and seeing Iker for the first time. Even before we got engaged, I knew I would marry him, but I couldn’t haven’t felt it more when I walked into the church.

Q. What was the most emotional part of the wedding day?
A. When I told my dad before we walked down the aisle- I’ll always be daddy’s girl.

Q. What was something you are glad you did on your wedding day that not everyone may realize?
A. I’m glad we didn’t go to the cocktail hour. It was really the only time we had alone before the reception. We got to talk, take pictures around the church and rusty pelican, eat a little and get ready for an amazing time at our reception.

Q. What is one piece of advice you would give a bride planning her wedding?
A. Enjoy every single minute of the planning. It might get a little stressful at times, but make the best out of it. You don’t want to feel like you hate planning the best day of your life. You will love your wedding day so much more.

Thank you, Karyn and Iker for letting us be a part of your day!

Special thanks to Marylen Exposito for planning this wedding perfectly.
