Cole & I met in high school when we were just 16 years old. We are high school sweethearts. We got engaged after ten years and married three days after our 1st date on our 11th anniversary. I knew there was something so special about him, a feeling that was so hard to describe at the time, but looking back, I knew it was meant to be. I even put this in my wedding vows; I knew I would marry him! And yet here we are, happily married and I still can’t believe our love story!
My inspiration for my wedding was a classic theme. I knew I wanted a classic feel with elegance but put a spin to it. When I found the Brooks at Weatherford, I completely fell in love with the Little White Chapel; it was stunning. I decided right then that was where we would celebrate our love story. I wanted to get married in October close to our anniversary and I knew it would be gorgeous weather at this time.
From there, all my decisions fell into place. I wanted some fun elements for the guests to enjoy, such as the Old School Van and a Cotton Candy Machine to entertain my guests during cocktail hour. The décor from the table linens and china to the flowers and cake was all chosen by a timeless, elegant vibe. I wanted creams, whites, light pink, golds, and blue/navy to tie my theme together. I felt the table settings were essential. It decorated the venue beautifully. From there, I knew I needed to tie in my blue glasses with the lights for the party to set the mood. They were to be gold and to turn blue when the party started. I chose blue glow sticks for the party; everything in my eyes had a blue theme.
My personality behind the wedding was to go big and that’s what I did! It became my mindset for the day. I had planned fireworks for my husband that was a total surprise! Can you imagine hiding such a fun secret for over a year?! It was the hardest secret ever! Imagine his reaction! He looked like a kid in a candy shop!
I love looking at my wedding photos & my video. They both captured everything I envisioned on my big day and everything came together like magic. I am so happy with all my choices. I wouldn’t have done anything differently.
