The Bride’s Perspective 

Describe Your Engagement 

We headed to Weko Beach, our usual spot, at the end of March. As soon as we pulled in it started snowing and blowing. We tried to walk down to the beach, but couldn’t because of how windy it was. Bart decided to have us go down to the river behind the dunes by the campground. He told me we were going to take some pictures because I always complain we have none together. Setting up a tripod by the bridge, I thought we were posing for pictures, but he had actually hit record, capturing the entire heartfelt proposal. Despite the snow and wind, it was absolutely perfect! 

Describe Your Wedding Vision 

Our vision was whimsical, colorful, and boho, with a lighthearted touch. We aimed for a blend of wood elements and lush greenery! 

Your Advice to Engaged Couples 

Don’t splurge all your savings on the wedding! Embrace minimalism! The day flies by, so invest in quality photographs and delicious food; those are what truly matter. 

Describe Your Wedding Day 

It was scorching hot! One of those summer days that hit 90 degrees. However, it unfolded exactly as we envisioned. Cherry Road Homestead exceeded our expectations with the stunning florals on the ceremony stage. The decor was spot on as planned. A brief rain during dinner turned out to be a blessing; it cooled everything off since nobody was outside. We arranged some outdoor games like yard Jenga and mini-golf, which everyone seemed to love! The overwhelming love and joy from our guests led to an incredible surprise: unbeknownst to Bart and me, our bridal party and guests pooled together, extending the celebration by paying the DJ and bartenders to stay longer because nobody wanted the day to end.
