Tell us a little about you and your beloved: We are military family and make sure to keep our relationship a priority. Maintaining a strong marriage takes work, especially when you spend a lot of time apart.

We believe that “couples that play together stay together,” so any chance we get to travel or participate in extreme sports we take.

Most importantly we are expecting our first baby this September!

What was the most amazing part of your day? The weather was unexpected and perfect for our enchanted wedding, in the middle of 100 degree spell in August, our day was in the low 80’s, we had lightning and rolling thunder (no rain) as we all danced under the stars.

What else would you like to share about your big day? All of the décor was designed and executed by me with the help of my mom and a few close friends.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Prioritize!!!! Know what is important to you and make sure you’re keeping those priorities in check, it’s so easy to get side tracked. All that matters is your marrying the love of your life!

Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Not worried about the little things, attention to detail is one thing, unnecessary stress over little things is a whole other story.
