From the Bride… I’ve been planning my wedding practically my whole life. I was a flower girl in a wedding when I was 3 and was instantly enamored by weddings. I had spent forever thinking about every detail, but the one I never could plan was the groom. Brian and I met in college, and after being friends for years, we started dating. We fell in love on a trip to Costa Rica and realized our shared passion for travel and adventure, which ended up being the unplanned theme for the proposal. We had gone camping with our dog on what we thought would be a beautiful spring weekend. The warm weather quickly turned into inches of snow and temperatures below freezing. After he proposed, we quickly packed up and went to the nearest town where we couldn’t help but laugh about it. I always knew I wanted to get married in the fall and our wedding took place in October at a beautiful farm under the cover of Walnut trees. With weather like an Indian summer, everything was perfect. It was a truly incredible feeling walking down the aisle and staring at the man that you are lucky enough to spend the rest of your life with. Surrounded by our close friends and family, we said our vows and danced into the night. Every detail about the night was wonderful and exactly as I had always dreamt it would be.
