How They Met
We met at a happy hour, but it took 5 months (and one more chance meeting) to get to our first date. That night was a bit bumpy: I thought it was dinner, he thought it was drinks, and I was VERY hungry. Normally I would have ordered food anyway, but didn’t want to scare him off. The joke became that he was the guy who didn’t feed me. But once he learned I am much happier with food in my belly it went much more smoothly. (All said in jest of course, but I do love eating!)

How They Chose Vendors
With the help of our amazing planner Autumn. She helped us sort through tons of options to find the best ones for us, and even spent extra time helping us find a band when our first choice canceled on us. We could not have done this without her!
Pick the top few things that are most important to you. (Music, food, venue, etc.) Then let the rest just flow. If you spend too much time trying to make every little thing perfect, you will stress yourself out of enjoying it. It also helps to balance incoming opinions from family and friends when you can let go of some of the pieces and let them help.
And they lived happily ever after...
