FROM THE BRIDE // I didn’t want to commit to a specific theme but I had recently gotten into country music and when I began the wedding planning process I found myself gravitating towards a rustic romantic feel, so I expanded upon that. I wanted all of the décor to be fun and romantic, a reflection of us. The day came together perfectly but the most memorable part was when we exchanged our vows. We had written them together and I felt they were honest, heartfelt, and really captured our love. It was amazing to make those vows to one another in front of all of our favorite people.
I knew the day was going to fly by so it was most important to have beautiful photos to look back on. I found Sun and Sparrow almost immediately after Robert had proposed and I knew that I had to have them photograph our wedding, we didn’t even have a venue or date set yet. Sun and Sparrow captured the romance in every relationship, and I loved the soft, romantic feel all of their images portrayed.
My advice for future brides is to not stress over the little things, the most important thing is that you are marrying your best friend, have fun and enjoy the process and most importantly your big day! Spend time finding the perfect vendors, and then trust that they will bring your vision to life. Married life is better than I ever imagined, I get to have a slumber party with my best friend everyday! We both lived at home up until the wedding so it has been so much fun moving in (except if I never have to move a fridge again it would be too soon) and making a home together. I love coming home from work and cooking dinner together and talking about our day, I look forward to doing it for the rest of my life.
