How did you meet and how long have you been together?
We met in college through a class and then were reintroduced socially through mutual friends! That was four years ago, now.
What were your highlights of the day? Were there any surprises?
The whole day felt like a highlight! Being from different places and attending college out of state means lots of our friends and family are spread across the country. It was a complete dream to all be together for the weekend, and knowing how supported and loved we are as we embark on this next journey with each other – there are just no words to describe it! Wait. The other highlight is definitely having the best band ever and spending the entire night sharing the dance floor with all of our guests.
What advice would you give to other couples planning their day?
Relax and enjoy the process of planning this celebration together. Don’t take the “wedding” things too seriously. All that matters in the long run is marrying your best friend with your loved ones there to celebrate with you!
Ceremony + Reception Location | What made you decide to get married there?
I actually chose are ceremony location after our reception venue. We still looked at having the ceremony somewhere else, but in the end, we knew that sharing the location with the reception would make it so much easier on our guests. We wanted to make sure everyone was comfortable to show our appreciation for them taking the time to travel and be with us that night! I loved the exposed brick and wooden beams. It was exactly what I was looking for! Plus the Chicory made everything so easy. It was a one stop shop, and the food – that is probably what really sold us!
