The Couple: Courtney and Matthew Hebert
Wedding Date: September 18, 2011
Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Matt and I met through a business venture. I was raising my daughter who was seven months old at the time, all by myself and going through a difficult custody situation. My daughter and I had an instant connection with Matt and after a year and half of dating we moved in together….five years later, almost to the date, we got married, he was able to adopt my daughter and as they say the rest is history.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Everything was about the three of us and our new life together.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Have your wedding be the wedding of your dreams and no one else’s. Take your time making decisions and always create a binder with sections for each vendor and aspect of your big day.
Anything that you would have done differently if you were given the chance? Everything was perfect until the bride realized she left the groom’s ring at home and had to use a stand in, but all in all the day was amazing.
