dreamy wedding

From the very moment I walked through the door, everything was perfect, and far surpassed any and all expectations I had. It really felt like a dream! All the months of planning and preparation had finally come to fruition. All the hours I had spent hand making many of the little details ended up making our wedding a unique reflection of Aulstin and myself.

perfect wedding

The reception ended up being everything I had imagined it to be. Everything was so beautiful, and came together so perfectly. The flowers by R Love Floral + Events were stunning, and far surpassed my expectations. It was a perfect reflection of our vision, and I would not have changed a thing. It really was a dream! From the moment I first saw everything, I was almost on the verge of tears!

a bit of advice

I would say that if there were two things I would absolutely splurge on, it would be photography and floral! My husband thought floral was an unnecessary extravagance, and when I told him our floral budget, I think his mouth hit the floor! In the end, he definitely acknowledged how much of a difference the floral made. And in terms of photography, I feel like that is a no brainer! Photography is one of the only tangible things you will have from your wedding, so why not spend the extra money to hire a quality professional?
