Make picking a venue that works for you a top priority! The venue is the core of the wedding! We loved our venue because there was plenty of space, an outdoor and indoor option (and we didn’t have to choose until 3 hours before the ceremony), delicious food & great staff!Read More

1. Life goes by really fast! Enjoy every moment and don’t spend too much time sweating the small things.
2. Time heals all and what seems like a big deal today - you may not even remember a few days or years from now. Try not to overthink or worry so much.
3. You don’t have to live a life that makes you unhappy. If something is bothering you: fight to change it. You are allowed to change, grow and evolve.
4. Take pictures and cherish them. They are SO fun to look back on and will put a smile on your face.Read More
