Describe Your Wedding Vision 

I knew I wanted my wedding vision to resemble something we both love. NATURE! We are always hiking with our dogs, identifying plants and animals we come across. I imagined my wedding being that of whimsical natural woodland. So many people asked me why I didn’t have flowers in my wedding and instead chose greenery…I wanted it to feel like one of our first dates, just walking through the woods, taking in its natural beauty. 

 

Describe Your Wedding Day  

I imagined my wedding full of laughter and happiness. Our wedding was exactly that, regardless of the circumstances. We planned to have our wedding so soon (June 9, 2017) in hopes that my father-in-law, who had cancer at the time, would be present. That wasn’t the end result, but I know he was still there with us, in our hearts, smiling down witnessing the happiest day of our lives. My consistent tears on that day weren’t tears of sadness. They were tears of joy, happiness and the presence I felt of my loved ones who weren’t there with us on that day. We exchanged our vows right before walking down the aisle, with a brick wall between us to ensure we didn’t see one another. We read our promises to each other, our promises for our future and our vows for our new life together. We then prayed for our family and friends who were there to witness the start to our new journey, we prayed to God and we prayed to our loved ones in heaven. 

 

Your Advice to Engaged Couples 

I advise engaged couples to never stop surprising one another, as my husband would say. Continue to explore and do the things you love together. Wedding planning can be exhausting and stressful, don’t let it be. Remember the purpose of this day, and allow it to resemble your love for one another.
