How They Met
Dylan and I met the first week I was attending collage in Bozeman. My roommate was good friends with Dylan’s roommate. We went over to a party at their house and Dylan was sitting on the front steps. We hit it off from there.
The Happy Couple
Dylan and I had been doing long distance for 3.5 years. It was my 22nd birthday and my parents brought me a ticket to Denver for thanksgiving break. While we were there, Dylan surprised me with a trip to Vail, Colorado for the night. Dylan is a big hockey player and wanted to take me ice skating that night. We went ice skating in the middle of the town and Dylan said he had another present for me. He dropped down on his knee and said, “I love you with my whole heart, Will you marry me?

How They Chose Vendors
We have been to many weddings in the past and took some vendors from every one. We really wanted a fun DJ and RMF was our match. We wanted very nice things that were in our budget.
We went to the Riviera Maya in Mexico. It was so much fun and so relaxing.
Fondest Memory from the Big Day
My fondest memory of our day was saying our vows in front of our friends and family. It was so special to have them as witnesses to the promises we were making each other. Our ceremony was all about God and I thought that was really special. Also our three grandmas were flower grandmas. That was really special to us to have them there and honored.
What They’d Do Differently
I wouldnt do anything different. The day was absolutely perfect in my eyes.
Have fun! Make the wedding planning fun, it’ll all come down to one day, so try to have some fun while planning. The planning process is so much fun! Try not to get too stressed out about the little things. No one notices them on the day of.
And they lived happily ever after...
