How They Met
I was bartending my way through college in Skyler’s hometown in Massachusetts. Skyler was home from the fire academy and stopped in. We talked about skydiving. A year later we were in the exact same situation but this time we talked about rock climbing. We ended up going rock climbing three times a week that whole summer before dating.

Fondest Memory from the Big Day
When we were deciding who would do readings during the ceremony, we knew Skyler’s dad had to be one! His mom told us not to pick anything emotional. We thought she was being dramatic but we picked a simple non-emotional reading from him. Well during the ceremony he made it to the second sentence before his voice started cracking. He couldn’t get past the fourth sentence. He was crying and so was everyone there. Skyler’s mom finished the reading for him.

How They Chose Vendors
I did a lot of Googling, reading reviews on Wedding Wire, and reading the Montana Brides & Grooms magazine. I had a coworker who had just gotten married too so I asked her a lot of questions.
I would say stress out up to the day before. Once it’s time for your rehearsal just breathe and count your blessings. Anything that comes up in the last 36 hours is out of your control. Just let it be. It rained on our day but it was still everything I wanted it to be, because there was SO MUCH LOVE. Everything that matters is already there and if you look at all the people you love, who love you, you’ll realize that a budget-breaking cake or more flowers doesn’t matter at all. Have fun with the planning! This should be the best time of your life! We also did a last minute splurge on a videographer and that was the best decision we made.
And they lived happily ever after...
