TELL US YOUR STORY: “We met through a co-worker of mine 9 years ago. She kept telling me about this guy and how cute of a couple we would make. So, I finally agreed to take his number and we talked for about a week before he left on a trip. We hadn’t talked while he was away because I figured he was too busy and didn’t have cell service. My co-worker asked how things were going and I told her we hadn’t talked in a little bit, so she said just message him!! Well, I did… and here we are 9 years later!! We have 3 beautiful baby boys, 2 dogs, and after rescheduling our 2020 wedding due to COVID we are finally married!”- N

BIGGEST CHALLENGE: “Our biggest challenge was definitely COVID! Like every single couple out there trying to plan a wedding through COVID, you’ll know that things have changed about 1,000 times! We originally planned a 120 person wedding for 2020 but rescheduled to 2021 and reduced our list to about 80. We had a ceremony only because our original reception venue shut down. We ended up having our wedding party, spouses, and parents back to our house after for dinner and drinks and it was absolutely perfect!.” – N

ADVICE: “My advice would be to try to go with the flow as much as possible! Chances are things are not going to go exactly as planned anyway. Also, think about after your wedding! What do you want to remember? The day goes so fast and then that’s it! So really take some time to soak it in.” – N
