‘We wanted it to be super equal, because our partnership is really equal,’ Sophie said.
Sophie’s bridal party consisted of her older brother Nick Simmons, 34, and a few cousins and friends.James had his two brothers and two best friends standing up for him.
The couple wrote their own vows and Sophie practiced hers over and over again in her car in an effort to not cry on her wedding day.
‘I’ve been practicing in the car because I’m like, “I am not going to cry,”‘ she said.’But I am so going to cry. I cry in the car, and then come in the house and James will be like, “Are you crying?” I’m like, “No, I’m fine!” Even though we’ve said all these things to each other before, it’s emotional.’
And she worried that her husband might decide to deliver vows full of inside jokes.
‘I have no idea what his vows are, but he’s really funny, and he’s kept a 10-year-long running list of all the stupid things I’ve ever said,’ she recalls.
‘I had to tell him, “They’re vows — they’re not supposed to be funny. That’s what your speech is for!” Neither of us have been married before, “http://xn--h1aapflr.xn--p1ai/ but I’m pretty sure you’re not supposed to roast your fiancée at the altar.’
