Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Todd and I met seven and a half years ago through friends. We were together five years before we got engaged. There are so many things that I love about Todd, and we have created an amazing home and family together. I couldn’t imagine living life without him and life is better everyday because he is in it.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Having so many of our friends and family there to celebrate with us. Todd and I really wanted to give our guests a great party and I think we achieved that.
What else would you like to share about your big day? Every aspect of our day exceeded my expectations. My flowers especially blew my mind. They were even more beautiful than I imagined.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Get all of your big items locked down first and then focus on the rest. Dont stress too much over the little things that your guests really won’t remember.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? I really wouldnt have done anything different. Two days before my wedding I really let go of all the stress. I figured what was done was done, and I really couldn’t change much at that point. I think it really helped me to enjoy the day and the experience that much more.
