Jennifer Berntsen & Ryan Poirier

The wedding day in a word: Blissful Wedding theme: Classic elegance Favorite moment for Jennifer: Finally seeing Ryan at the altar — the moment was so emotional and special, and completely surreal. Favorite moment for Ryan: Our first dance together. We danced to "I Won't Let Go" by Rascal Flatts. Biggest surprise: We gave each other surprise gifts that we opened separately before the ceremony. Ryan got me a sapphire ring, and I got him a Tag Heuer watch. We were both very surprised! If you could do it all over again...: We wouldn't change a thing! We loved our wedding day and truly got to enjoy our guests' company and ourselves on the best day of our lives. Piece of advice: Take a moment to look around during either your ceremony or your reception and appreciate that all of those people are there to celebrate you and your love for each other. Where they live: Derry, NH Honeymoon location: Paris, France, and Athens, Mykonos and Santorini, Greece Favorite honeymoon moment: We went horseback riding in Santorini and then went for a private dinner and wine tasting. The experience was amazing! Occupations: Jenn, critical care registered nurse; Ryan, systems engineer
