LAURA & STEVE AGUIRRE

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO MODEL

FOR THIS PHOTO SHOOT?

Laura & Steve: Why not?! We love to have fun and do new things,

especially together, so we figured this would be something of that

nature that we can show our friends and family and any future kids

we have. Plus, to be honest, as a now former bride, I really didn’t

want to let go of everything “wedding” just yet. I had so much fun

planning our wedding and we had so much fun celebrating with

everyone, that this was a small way for us to still play “bride and

groom” even if just for a little while longer.

ROCHELLEWILHELMS.COM

WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE PART OF MODELING?

L & S: We both really enjoyed hanging out in Old Sacramento

early in the day, before the swarms of people moved in to play

tourist, go to work, or have lunch. We both said in our filmed

interview that being able to walk the railroad tracks and get up

close and personal with the trains was a fun experience. Neither

of us truly love to be in front of the camera, so to be able to step

out of our comfort zone a bit, get all dressed up (having someone

do your hair and makeup is beyond awesome!) and have to play a

part, was new and unfamiliar, but a good lesson in going with the

flow and enjoying the moment.

IF YOU COULD OFFER ANY ADVICE TO FUTURE

NEWLYWEDS-TO-BE, WHAT WOULD IT BE?

L & S: Enjoy every moment of the planning process. Don’t stress

about the small things. Don’t stress about the big things or what

you or someone else may think the big things are. Invite only

those that you genuinely love and want to be there to share your

day with you and your spouse. Do not, in any way, feel obligated

to do things in a way that aren’t truly and uniquely you and your

soon-to-be lifelong partner’s vision of how you want the day to

go. Take time with your spouse, after your ceremony and during

your reception, to be in the moment and enjoy the party that is

the beginning of your life together. Do not shop for your wedding

dress until you are ready to do so, and go with your gut

feeling; you know what you like, you know what your

> Visit our website

comfort level is, you know your vision. Be open to other

realweddingsmag.com

possibilities, but don’t be afraid to always fall back on

to learn more about

your gut and go with it. Embrace every second of the day, Laura & Steve, and to

because it goes by so fast. Above all else, HAVE SO MUCH see more photos from

FUN! OO
