Tell us a little about you and your beloved: Steven and I met when we were in high school and dated on and off. We reconnected after college and decided to give it another shot. We had a long distance relationship for years until I finally made the decision to move 500 miles to be with him. We have lived happily ever since.
What was the most amazing part of your day? Spending quality time with each other and our closest family members.

Any advice you’d give to our readers who are planning their weddings right now? Plan the wedding of your dreams, no one elses! We didn’t want a big show and fancy things at our wedding, so we planned a day that we knew we would enjoy. Your wedding day should be about you and your soon-to-be spouse, enjoy every minute!
