Before the Wedding …

How did you two meet?  Met 5 years ago through some friends in Orlando, FL. Mike lived in Orlando, FL and I lived in Jacksonville, FL. We started dating after spending time together on New Years Eve! It was that night they both hit it off and we then started a long distance relationship

How did he propose?  Mike planned a beautiful weekend in the North Georgia Mountains. He took me up on a hike to Ana Ruby Falls. He got down on one knee and proposed in front of the waterfall

How did you decide on your color scheme, flowers, and cake?  Blush, champagne,  gold and ivory. I wanted colors that were timeless and classic. I knew I didn’t want to look back and be disappointed in a real “trendy” color scheme

How did you decide on your invitations, and who did you use? We worked with  Wedding Paper Divas

What was the most fun part of wedding planning? picking the venue, creating what I wanted and seeing my “vision” come together

Which part did you not like as much? The cost! LOL!


After the Wedding …

What was the high point of your wedding day that you hope to remember forever? Walking down the aisle towards my husband Mike and seeing all of my family and friends

If you could give yourself any advice prior to the wedding, what would it be?   Don’t sweat the small stuff

Where did you go for your honeymoon? 12 day European trip to Italy Greek Isles and Turkey
