Our Wedding

September 1st, 2018 will forever be the best day of my life. It was the day that I got to marry my best friend in our favorite place. We had a wedding of 170 people at the place where I grew up going, Devil’s Thumb Ranch. Within 48 hours of being engaged, we had our date locked in. Labor Day weekend 2018.

I cannot even begin to put into words how special our wedding day and the entire weekend was. I felt a love I never even knew possible when I saw Drew for the first time on our wedding day. He is someone who makes me feel my most comfortable self and when he is not around, I feel like a piece of me is missing. He is my person and my rock. The feeling of having all of our family and friends in one place and knowing they are all there for us was extremely humbling.

It was amazing to see our wedding come to life after all of the hard work and planning we put into it. I would be lying if I said I was never stressed or overwhelmed during our 9 month engagement. There are ups and down but my best advice is to never lose sight of what the wedding and marriage truly means.

My goal was to create a rustic, yet elegant mountain wedding. My color palette was green and white, with soft shades of lavender and dusty rose mixed in. I wanted person touches like walking down the aisle to Elvis Presley’s “I Can’t Help Falling in Love” and wearing my aunt’s diamond earrings and bracelet. Drew’s Uncle married us, which was so special and personal and my grandmother gave a beautiful blessing during our ceremony.
