Turning the corner to walk down the “aisle” and seeing all of my family and friends! Because of the pandemic, I hadn’t seen many of them for over a year. I felt such an overwhelming feeling of love seeing them all under one tent!

My number one piece of advice is to hire a day-of coordinator for your wedding day . Our coordinator, Jennie, from Beautiful Day Planning made sure everything ran so so smoothly. The only thing we had to do on our wedding day was enjoy ourselves! After all the stress of wedding planning, you deserve to just relax and soak up all the wedding day feels 🙂

This dress was my DREAM dress! I saw it on Pinterest a while ago but was sad to see it had been discontinued on the website. I loved Jenny Yoo’s classic yet modern styles so I decided to make the trip to the Jenny Yoo store to check them out. I picked out lots of similar A-line styles that caught my attention. Then my dress consultant said “what about this dress?” and pulled out my DREAM dress. Of course I said YES!! A bonus was that the dress had pockets!! It was perfect for stashing wedding day tissues for misty eyes and, in our case, sweaty 90 degree day foreheads.

Impromptu limbo during the reception! Our theatrical groomsmen during the reception! They have been asked to crash a few weddings just to get the dance floor going! Doing my dress reveal to my bridesmaids was so emotional! I think that’s when I actually realized it was our wedding day.

Jess made us feel so comfortable and at ease. It was really important to us to have a photographer who not only took beautiful photos but one that we enjoyed spending time with on our big day. Jess did that and so much more!
