plan a modern wedding in the middle of the country

It’s obvious that this wedding was built on and around the things most important to Laura and Nick, and you can see the joy on their faces. I am absolutely in love with what the bride recounts happening to her during her ceremony! So sweet that she was so focused on where she was going and why that she literally couldn’t pay attention to anything else.

From the Bride: 

My husband is a musician, so, naturally, he was in charge of coordinating music for our wedding. We decided on a sweet jazz combo and Nick picked out all the tunes. The only thing I asked for solo fiddle music as I walked down the aisle. The day of the wedding, as I began to walk towards the altar, with my parents on either side, the strangest thing happened: I heard the first few notes the fiddler played and then heard nothing after that. I think the emotion and adrenaline of the day had an effect on me! 🙂

Other than not being able to recall processional music, the day was perfect: we worked diligently together to plan a ceremony that was meaningful, flowed well, and reflected our ideas about love. We both have said that our favorite parts were saying the vows and just looking into each other’s eyes. All of that coupled with incredible support from our parents; an outstanding bridal party, and joy and love from family and friends….I couldn’t have asked for a better day.

Many thanks to our vendors and I encourage others to utilize them!
