Their Love Story:
From the Bride:
Johnni and I have known each other since the 4th grade. However, I was the one who never really cared to much for boys growing up and I never even wanted to get married. He claims in the 6th grade he asked me to be his girlfriend, but I turned him down. I have no recollection of this!
Many years passed and Facebook was invented. Johnni and I became friends on Facebook a few months after joining and we used to talk every now and then, but nothing romantic. He was so nice to invite me out to his family's restaurant for karaoke, but AGAIN I turned him down.
A few years passed and I moved to Paris to pursue a dream of mine and Johnni and I kept in touch. One day I had written a "status update" about how I was going to go see the latest Harry Potter film with one of the friends. I was so excited because I love Harry Potter! Well, little did I know, Johnni was too! Since I was living in Paris, Harry Potter had come out a week later than it did in the United States, so once Johnni saw my post he quickly commented on how good the movie was. We then struck up a 52 comments on this one status update!
Soon after, we started Skyping. One night in particular we Skyped for 5 hours! Shortly after that I returned to the United States and he took me out on our first date. Now, we joke all the time how Harry Potter was our match maker!
The River Mill had what you call "packages" that you purchase. Which includes ceremony site, reception hall, flowers, food, drinks, tables, chairs, china and cake. That was about $18,000.
Then there are all the little extras like the vintage decor ($1200),
wedding invites ($1100),
arts and crafts for the table numbers I made, the large mason jars with the fireflies in them as well as all the doilies that were on the tables ($500),
guest poster ($200)
The final budget came to about $40,000.
