Our wedding day was an absolute dream that wouldn’t have been possible without our families!
When envisioning my wedding, I was certain about two things: I wanted to get married in the church I grew up attending and I wanted to have the reception outside of the home I grew up in.
Oxford United Methodist Church is the only place I could see Zeke and I vow our love to one another before God, our family and friends. It’s the church my parents were married in and the church where my brothers and I were baptized. Selling my parents on the ceremony location was the easy part. Selling them on the reception location? Not so much.
BIG shout out to my parent’s for coming around to the idea of having it at their house. It wasn’t easy but I think we can all agree it was worth it. Dad, Mom, thank y’all for allowing me to have my dream wedding. It was even better than I envisioned.
After finally agreeing on the reception venue, we quickly learned planning an outside affair is A LOT of extra work. Like, a lot. I can’t believe we even attempted to plan it ourselves. Hiring our wedding planner, Morgan Leigh, was the best decision we could have made. Without her, our wedding would have been a full on disaster! There is no way we could have pulled off our special day without help from a professional.
I’ve had so many people ask for our wedding band’s information, who was our photographer, where did we get our invitations, etc. so I apologize that this post is long overdue! I wanted to wait until we got our final wedding video before I shared all the vendors details.
