Most Sentimental Moment

Our first look was one of the most intimate and beautiful moments of our day. Also, we had a private “last dance” as all the guests went downstairs to await our grand exit. We were so glad that we did that.

Favorite part with friends and family

We loved our Photo Booth and so did our guests! Our DJ also kept everyone grooving the whole night!

Biggest surprise

After exchanging vows and rings, my partner pulled out his phone and took a selfie with us and all of our guests in the background. I was completely unprepared, but it made for a great photo!

Our traditions

There was absolutely nothing traditional about our big day.

How we personalized it

We batched delicious cocktails and named them after ourselves. We also had a champagne tower. Why? Because it was AWESOME.

Our honeymoon

We did a staycation at a beautiful hotel in Dallas. We’re postponing our honeymoon to Croatia until the summer due to a job promotion.

Best part of the planning process

I enjoyed how low-stress the entire process was. We had a long engagement, and after being together six years, we approached the planning process together. Dividing and conquering was key. #enjoythejourney Don’t stress, friends. No matter how perfect you want your day to be, there will always be hiccups. We accepted that early on and made for a fairly relaxing day despite the rain…(which actually made the most beautiful photos and added to the moody/dramatic vibe of the event)

What’s next for us

We are looking forward to all the next big chapters in our future together. Buying our first home, children, and probably adopting more cats.
