I'm so excited to finally be sharing some of our wedding photos! Caleb and I are high school sweethearts and dated for 4 1/2 years before tying the knot. By the time we were engaged, I already knew what style I was going for: romantic and organic with a neutral color palette. Think loads of eucalyptus, lush white roses, muted pinks and grays, with gold and wood accents. 

I had my heart set on brass candlestick holders, so the summer before our wedding I snagged a bunch off of Tradesy for a great deal! All of the floral designs were a DIY with my mother, mother-in-law and aunt, saving us tons of money. The wooden signs were also a DIY that Caleb helped me with. We stained some plywood and used a paint pen to write the words. I wish I could say that the calligraphy was my own, but we cheated and set up a projector and just followed the lines. Someday I'll be that good though!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! August in Minnesota can be pretty humid, and our wedding was held entirely outdoors. Thankfully, it turned out to be the most perfect weather weekend in the state all summer! Sunny, but not to hot. 

Looking back on that day, I wouldn't change a single thing. Yes, some things went not as planned, but that's what makes memories. What matters most is that I married a Godly, hardworking, caring man; my best friend. There's no one I'd rather do life with.
