Note from the Bride and Groom
We asked the bride and groom to tell us about their planning and budgeting process, and this is what they had to say:
We knew that sticking to a budget for us would be tricky, so we decided to make sure we spent a majority of the money on the important things such as a wedding coordinator, photographer, food and entertainment.
An efficient and organized wedding coordinator would take stress off of us and our family so we could enjoy our special day.
A photographer helps ensure that you remember your day forever with photos to capture lots of memories.
The Food and Entertainment
Your guests always remember the food and entertainment. We still have friends that mention how much fun they had dancing at our wedding and how amazing the food tasted!
This was only one day but it was done right! Now we will have amazing memories of our wedding the rest of our lives!
