Keeping Dad Close

From the Bride: It was extremely important to me that we honored my dad throughout the day. He passed away after battling cancer in January of 2014. I knew it was going to be very hard not having him there. After I put on my wedding dress, my mom gave me a beautiful locket with my dad’s picture in it. I attached it to my bouquet and carried it around with me throughout the day. Having him with me provided me comfort, and I know that he was looking down on me with so much love.

Managing Your Wedding Budget

I would say to future brides that organization is a key! Google docs are a savior and the whole process involves a lot of organization and project management. Make sure to find trade offs if you have a limited budget - i.e. pick the areas that are most important where you want to splurge and then find ways to save money (do it yourself welcome bags, save the dates, etc).

Sweet Wedding Moments

I was told so many times to make sure to enjoy each part of the day since it goes by so fast. I truly believe I did. I loved getting ready with my mom and bridesmaids, seeing Chris for the first time when I walked down the aisle, trekking through the hills with Chris during our photo session and being surrounded by our family and friends throughout the day.
