Tell us a bit about your wedding!

“We got married on our existing anniversary date in the bourbon distillery because we like to try different bourbons and loved the space!”

What was your favorite part of your wedding day?

“Not only was it a great way to celebrate our third anniversary together but it was so personal to us; every detail from the venue, to the flowers and centerpieces, to the food and cake.”

Did you two do a first look?!

“Yes, we wanted to capture the moment of seeing each other on our wedding day for the first time!  It was fun and so personal to us. Our first date I delivered pizza to him so he had dinner while packing to move and I haven’t missed a pizza delivery yet.”

What’s next? What are you two planning on tackling next in life?

“We are enjoying watching our little girl figure out the world around her and after the holidays we will pick back up with some small DIY projects.”

For the bride: What are three things you love about your groom?

“I love that he shows me every day how much he loves me, he can make me laugh on my worst days, and his love for his family. He is absolutely my best friend and I cant imagine a day without him in it.”

For the groom: What are three things you love about your bride?

“She is my best friend, the most beautiful woman I know and she cares for and loves me, and our family.”

Bride tell us a bit about who was the most helpful in helping you pull off your dream wedding?

“My sister in law, she was so helpful in decorating the day of the wedding when everyone else was busy. She took my ideas for what I wanted and made them come life. Everything was perfect and better than I was envisioning.”

Advice for other couples who are planning their own wedding right now?

“No matter how big or small your wedding is, don’t underestimate the 30 days before. Everything comes all at once and feels so overwhelming. On the flip side to that, don’t stress about the small stuff. Your day will be beautiful and no one attending will know the difference if something didn’t come together exactly how you planned.”

Did anything hilarious/unexpected happen?!

“The toasts, we didn’t know if anyone was going to make a toast and then Russ’ brother, the best man, made a toast that no one wanted to follow because it was that funny.”

First dance song?

“I Cross My Heart by George Strait”

Ceremony music?

“The mothers and bridesmaids walked down to Late November by Ryan Hubbell and I walked to Pachelbels Canon in D by Brooklyn Duo. Our recessional song was Never Tear Us Apart by INXS”

How big was your wedding party?

“We had 4 people!”
