Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We were highschool sweethearts. We meet in the “History of Rock and Roll” class over a mint, when we shortly realized we both shared a love for camping, off-roading and animals. We have been together ever since.

What was the most amazing part of your day? Marrying my best friend.

What else would you like to share about your big day? It was a wonderful experience being able to share a place that is very close to our hearts with people we love.

Any other of your wedding vendor(s) you’d like to call out? We would love to give thanks to Brinn and Jimmy, and the people at the Silver Maple. And, also Relaxing Furr Dog Kennels for taking such good care of our babies. A special thanks to my Mom, too! Without her our wedding would not have nearly been as special as it was.

First Dance Song: “Baby I Love You” by the Ramones.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Just be true to yourselves, people will give you advice or try to make you use what they want or think it should be, but at the end of the day it’s about you and your partner celebrating your love for one another.

Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? I would have changed my hair. By the end of the night it was so tangled i could not even get a brush through it.
