When did y’all get married? March 10, 2018
Tell us all about the proposal! Geoff proposed at Bachannal in front of all our friends. He pretended we were meeting them to celebrate his birthday!
What was your most memorable moment about your wedding day?: After the ceremony, Geoff and I rode on top of the vintage car we had rented to the reception. It was a great moment for us to take in what had just happened and just have a pause in a crazy day!
What readings, if any, did you have at your ceremony?: Honestly, the Catholic church needs to catch up! We chose the ones that were the least offensive to women. We wrote letters to each other that morning which were much more meaningful to us.
How did y’all meet? Tell us your love story. Geoff and I have been together for 14 years! We started dating in high school when we met through a mutual friend.
Describe your wedding flowers. I really wanted something that was soft and romantic, but not boring. So Bee's Florist and I came up with a color palette that worked with the season, bridesmaid dresses, and venue location. They did a great job!

Favorite detail of the wedding was: We loved the flowers, clearly our rentals, our cakes, our band, pretty much everything! We were so happy about the way it all turned out!
Tell us about some of the songs you used throughout your wedding and why you chose them. Geoff and I aren't really romantics. We didn't want our first dance song to be something overly sentimental because it wouldn't have been honest to who we are. We wanted something kind of cheesy and funny, which is a truer expression of our relationship. So our first dance was KC and JoJo, All My Life!
What advice do you have for folks currently planning a wedding? Choose your vendors wisely. If you have complete confidence in them, you'll be able to totally relax on the day of the wedding!
What’s next for you as a couple? What memories are you looking forward to making together? Geoff and I are proud parents of a very very bad dog.We guess this is good practice for if we ever have a very very bad child, which is probable. Right now we're focused on the bad dog, our house, and our jobs. We look forward to navigating life's ups and downs together and continuing to take vacations we can't afford.
