From the Bride... Patrick and I began working together in the summer of 2011, and something developed between us that corporate America generally tries their hardest to avoid. We quickly became love struck, but little did we know what was in store for our future. Our first date occurred when Patrick asked me to be his "plus one" for his friend’s wedding. Oh, the irony of the situation.

For the most part, planning our wedding was fairly seamless, since we both had roughly the same vision. We wanted an outdoor venue, a rustic/elegant feel, and an intimate setting. Patrick, being an avid drummer, wanted to make sure the venue would allow a live band. Our cocktail hour featured a special performance from the groom himself, his sister, brother, two best men, and my father. They dedicated 3 songs in honor of the bride, a funky jazzy cover of Bob Dylan's "Lay Lady Lay", "Free Falling" by Tom Petty, and they concluded with "Brown Eyed Girl" sang by my father, all holding special meaning to me.

We had a trumpet and guitar player for our cocktail hour which offered the perfect musical setting, and our dinner featured a buffet to keep with the casual setting. Our wedding cake was rather modest and rounded out by a giant dessert spread that included several plates of cookies, brownies, mini creme brûlée, and cupcakes.

In choosing our vendors we wanted to work with people who understood our preferences, who we didn't have to give a ton of direction too and let them do what they do best! The results turned out better than we could have imagined. It was the perfect day.
