Now this couple may just be the cutest we have ever worked with! We have never seen so much love between a Bride & Groom. The Bride was actually in Indiana during the planning process, so the Groom was our main point of contact. He came to the walk through, and we actually did not really talk to the Bride until the week before the wedding & did not meet her until the rehearsal! Talk about an amazing team effort!
The couple was just SO kind! Everything they asked for they asked politely, always said please & thank you, and always expressed their gratitude when we assisted them! They also stayed on top of their due dates which is ALWAYS appreciated!
Erica and Peter are both so incredibly sweet, polite, and just wanted a day to celebrate their marriage with the 150 they love most. Although they were on a tighter budget, they really made it work for them! They had a lot of DIY projects, which made it really special and personal for them. Their colors were blue, white, and greenery, and they had rustic wood details as well!
They saw each other for the first time down the aisle, and the groom instantly started crying when he saw her, when they read their vows, and even during the recessional (totally made us tear up too)! The couple was SO incredibly happy. They hugged Ashley 1,000,000 times & she had guests come up to her constantly saying how well it went!
Major shout out to Steve’s Flower Market for being so great! They did a beautiful job. Cattura Photography was super easy to work with and captured the essence of this sweet couple perfectly! We also can’t thank their DJ, Okyne Media Lab enough! He really helped keep things running smoothly and was a great MC too!
