-How did he propose?

He planned for his aunt to invite us to a “Christmas game night”. Her house was where he took me the night that we first started dating for me to meet his family. We got there and there was a huge light display and tent in the front yard. He took me through 5 arches and at each arch we looked at photos from that year of your relationship. After the 5th arch was the proposal spot. The minute I said yes, fireworks were set off! 

-Tell us about your venue and why you chose it:

We chose to get married in a traditional church. Then we had our reception at the event space of the church we first remember meeting at.

-What was your favorite and least favorite about the wedding planning process?

My favorite part of wedding planning was going to a flower farm to look at dahlias for bouquets. My least favorite part was having to choose a dress without my fiancé there because we are best friends. Monica’s made even the dress shopping great though. I felt very confident he would be blown away by my dress and he was!

-Any advice for other brides planning their big day?

Enjoy every detail of planning, it will be over before you know it!

-What was your favorite part about your wedding day?

The first look. Finally having my fiancé see me and getting to see how handsome he looked was perfect. Also, from that moment on I clung to him and didn’t have to be separated from him again except for about 5 mins before the ceremony started!
