Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Seth and I both grew up in Amador County. We went to Jr. High together, and then went to rival highschools. Both of us moved away to experience college and then both moved back almost 10 years later. We reconnected at the local county fair, and fell quickly in love. We dated for about 3 years and then Seth proposed to me on Christmas Morning in our own place, which was so perfect. After a year and a half engagement, mostly for planning purposes, we were married in our hometown surrounded by family and friends. And now just a few months before our 1 year anniversary we will be welcoming a baby girl into our family.

What was the most amazing part of your day? Being surrounded by family and friends at the wedding of our dreams.

What else would you like to share about your big day? I spent a year and half planning every single detail of the wedding and it was absolutely perfect.
