The Engagement:

Cody and I started dating in June of 2013 and got engaged in August of 2016. Right away, we were thrown into probably the busiest year of our lives as we began to prepare for our wedding day! We planned, dreamed, prayed, hoped, and planned some more as August 5, 2017 approached. The closer we got to the next chapter of our story together, the more excited we were. We spent hours going over invitation samples, looking at venues,  and wandering around Hobby Lobby and At Home (where we always managed to find something we’d been looking for!). We also spent plenty of time looking for shoes, ties, suits, rings, and jewelry.

And then, there was the dress. I spent hours trying to find my perfect dress, and it was Sara at Altar Bridal that finally pulled together the look I wanted. We took the top from one Mikaella dress and the bottom from another and had them put together to create exactly what I wanted. I am forever grateful that Sara took the time to call Mikaella and work it out with them. Not to mention, calling me to answer my endless questions as I made my final decision that this was the dress I’d been looking for. I felt beautiful, comfortable, and confident in that amazing dress!

The Wedding:

Our wedding day finally arrived, and the planning paid off because it went off without a hitch! It was a gorgeous, 75 degree, sunny, lightly breezy day.  We don’t know how we got so lucky. I’d always wanted an outdoor wedding. So, we couldn’t believe we got the most perfect day to spend together and with all of our family and friends.

It went by too fast, but it was by far one of the most amazing days of our lives and we couldn’t have asked for anything better. Now, we look forward to our life as a married couple as we spend time together, learn more about each other, and enjoy every bit of each other’s company!
