Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Our house is full of love and craziness, with our combined four sons, six dogs and eight chickens, there is never a dull moment. We embrace every moment to the fullest. My husband is my best friend and I am so thankful for the amazing life we have created together.
What was the most amazing part of your day? For us both, it was when I came down the aisle to meet Jim.
What else would you like to share about your big day? It was the most amazing day, it was perfect! Also, the fact that we were surrounded by all our friends and family made it even more special.

Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out? Adora Wools — they made our wedding cake topper. It was so cute! The Story of Kat — she did the custom embroidery on our wedding shoes. Purple Peony Couture — they provided our signs for the photo booth, guest book and bar.
Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Spend the money on a great photographer, we are SO glad we did. Our wedding planner was money very well spent. Also, I would say relax and enjoy the process. I found myself at times felling really overwhelmed and in the end it was all pointless, everything was perfect. Trust in your vendors. One last thing…. GET A PHOTO BOOTH, so much fun!
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Nothing, it was perfect! Everything went so well, and if it didn’t, our great team of professionals kept it from us!!!
