Right before the craziness of the Corona Virus hit, these two got hitched!  January 11th of 2020, in the calm comfort of winter.  The highlights they shared with us, coupled with these pictures, oh -  you can just feel the love these two share! Truly, something very special and we are so pleased we get to share some of their story with the world!

Do you have a special memory from your wedding day?
The unity element of our ceremony was very sentimental for Eric and I. Both of our parents still had their unity candles from their wedding, so we had our parents each like their respective candle then Eric and I took a flame four our parents' unity candles and used it to light our our candle. This portion of the ceremony was so symbolic and special to us!
Eric and I didn't do a first look, but instead we stood back to back before the ceremony and got to read each other love letters and just spent time together before the ceremony. It was a special, private time for both of us before the ceremony! I loved it!!!

What do you admire most about your husband? I admire his calm and steadfast personality. He approaches the stressors of life with a tranquil composure, and always seems to find the humor in stressful situations.

Is there a great proposal story?   Eric proposed to me, by surprising me with a week long cruise to the Caribbean. It was on that cruise he proposed!

Any DIY tips? What else would you want everyone to know about your wedding?

Something I would tell to nearly any bride, is if you have a budget you have to adhere to, and you're worried you have to sacrifice your vision -- there is always still a way to get the dream wedding you want!! It takes a healthy dose of research, creative problem solving, and maybe some help from family and friends! But it is sooo possible!!!!

What was your experience with Adore?
I purchased my wedding gown at Adore -- it has been an amazing experience from start to finish!!!
