From the bride: When Tim and I met we started planning a life together almost immediately. I met his parents after just three weeks and we started our first business together only three months into dating. We’ve been best friends and partners in everything ever since. Planning a life together isn’t that different from running a business together. We compliment each other’s strengths and interests in a way that together we can experience and achieve things that we wouldn’t be able to alone. We love being a team, together.
So it only made sense that we planned our whole wedding together. In fact, we planned almost the wedding before we got engaged. For us, our wedding was about hosting a party for all of our favorite people. We thought about what would make it special for us and we put a lot of thought into making sure everyone would have a good time. Live music gets people dancing so that was a requirement. We also wanted to give our out of town guests a taste of Wisconsin so our cocktail hour started with Old Fashions and cheese curds. We wanted to share our day with the people who matter the most to us. We chose not to have an official bridal party because we didn’t want to it. narrow down. Instead just invtied our closest friends to hang out with us for the day while we got ready. Our officiants were a married couple who are two of our best friends. Our wedding really was everything we hope it would be. It made our hearts so full to have all of our friends and family together. We ended up paying the band to play longer and at 1:45AM when the bar finally called “last call” almost 1/3 of our guests were still dancing with us. We’re probably totally biased but the next day we had a whole conversation about how it was the best party we’d been to. We’ve never felt so surrounded by love and are trying to come up with another reason to throw a party for our favorite people. We’ll only get married once but we’d throw the party again and again and again.
