Our Favorite Memory From The Wedding

The ceremony was for sure the most memorable part of the day. My father-in-law married us and he made the whole ceremony very special and personal.

Our Advice To Those Planning Now

After our wedding we received a lot of compliments from people who loved how laid back and relaxed our wedding was. A tip that I would give for those planning now is to RELAX and to not feel pressured into sticking to all the “traditions.”

We spent around $10,000 on our wedding. Some tips that I would give for a small budget would be to do a lot of the wedding yourself. I went shopping for all the decorations, we made all of our invitations and programs, we did our own centerpiece flowers, and we worked with family friends on all the catering. Another way that we saved a lot of money was by limiting our reception to a dessert reception instead of an all out sit down dinner. This also saved us time because we did not have to make a seating chart for the reception.
