It’s impossible to really know what a wedding is going to be like before the day kicks off. You can get a feel from the couple and a sense of the style of wedding they’re planning and hoping for, but until the day it’s all speculation and ideas.

I know it's a cliche, and after all this is a wedding, but there was a real warmth and love between Gloria and Kevin throughout the entire day.
