Any advice for those planning now?
Start early. If you are crafting, designing, making, creating, start on your projects now. We finished almost everything a week before the wedding and didn’t stress about any of the details during the final days. Also, stay true to your sense of style and what you want in your day. Everyone around us had advice, suggestions, ideas, and while we listened to what friends and family had to offer, we remained steadfast in planning the day that represented who we are as a couple.
We are incredibly grateful to live in such a gorgeous part of the country, in a city that encourages and supports boundless creativity. Our wedding could not have happened without the help of our wonderful families and incredibly talented friends. There was so much sentiment tied to the fact that we had personal relationships with our caterer, baker and florist. Our friends and families schlepped and hauled, set up and broke down, and helped us have our dream wedding.
