The "wow factor" of your wedding/reception that everyone talked about: Everyone talked about how pretty the reception was.
The most unique detail of your wedding/reception: Instead of the traditional limousine, we had a pedicab take us from the church to the reception site and then back to our room at the Bay Town Inn. The pedicab came fully decorated with flowers and white lights, and the driver was dressed in a tuxedo. It was fun to see people's faces as we passed them on the street.
