Just about a year ago I married my best friend...
We had a small wedding party that was absolutely amazing. I got so many emails asking to help, sending ideas and inspiration. They were lifesavers! I love you Ryan and Justyna!

Kevin and I love the winter so much that we had to have the wedding while there was snow on the ground. We found a fantastic venue that was so organized and amazing. We could not say enough about how awesome The Manor was! The staff were the nicest, and most understanding people. We had so many guests and other vendors come up to us during the night to say that it was the only wedding they have ever been to where everything happened ON TIME. Something that was very important to me. There is nothing worse than your guests waiting around for hours!

Money was the biggest obstacle for us. We wanted to have a nice wedding but we had to sit down and count all the pennies and make some tough decisions. What could we go without? What was a 100% necessity? Little did we know this was great practise for married life. Compromise! I wanted a good selection of food for our guests, so we had to give up a limo, and get our family to drive us home. We wanted to invite more guests, so we went without a fancy hotel room and just went home because we lived close to the venue. I wanted nice decor and good music and beautiful flowers so we gave up an exotic honeymoon and just went up north for on overnight getaway. These were small things that we could live without. It was more important to please our guests than it was for us to have a few extra unnecessary details. Sure we would have loved to go to St. Lucia for a week, but we decided that there will be plenty of time for that. We didn't need to go on our honeymoon right away. We could wait and hope that we would be in a better financial situation another time, where we wouldn't be worried about coming home from that honeymoon and going to the mailbox to sort through bills we couldn't pay! I am still dreaming about St. Lucia, but I don't regret any of the decisions we made about our day! We had each other and really thats all we needed!

The food was amazing and the company was ever better! We could not have asked for a more perfect day. And here we are, one year later, still going strong! We still have our ups and downs but it was a great decision deciding to spend the rest of my life with my best friend! <3
