Casey and I met as most young people do, at a friends house for a New Years Party. We hit it off instantly, but still developing who I was and what I was looking for, I did not want something that felt so serious so soon. Which looking back now, was probably the best decision I could have made, I was not mature enough for what our relationship was about to become. Subsequently 4 years later the timing was undeniable for us to come together again. We really got the chance to appreciate each other this time. Fast forward another 4 years while on vacation in Florida with a few of our close friends Casey was getting down on one knee asking me to marry him, none of us the wiser that this vacation was about to start a captivating new chapter For Casey and I.
A wedding should speak to your personalities both as a couple and as individuals. For us, we wanted our wedding to feel open, free flowing, and inviting. We wanted a touch of elegance with our outdoorsy nature, surrounded by trees, family and love. Our colors were dusty rose, maroon, and lots and lots of green.
