Our Wedding – Part 2 | Getting Ready + Our First Look

October 5, 2019. I couldn’t believe the day was finally here! We woke up and the temperature had shifted almost 15 degrees lower from the evening before. It was a cool 70-degree day with mostly grey skies and a little sunlight poking through. It was the perfect fall weather for our all white with grey wedding day. 

Travis and I couldn’t have asked for a more perfect day. We each spent the morning and early afternoon getting ready separately with our bridal party. We added in personal details, like our favorite Rise Up Coffee from home for the early morning and Travis and his groomsmen arriving by boat to the first look/ceremony. 

We had all of our events (Welcome Dinner + Wedding Day) at a private house on the lake with an expansive yard perfect for our ceremony and tented reception. With beautiful landscaping and lakefront views, it was exactly what we had pictured. 

Our wedding vendors truly went above and beyond to make the day perfect. From our Wedding Planner, Caroline, to our Photographers, Andie and Tony (who even stayed the night at our venue the evening before). To our wedding videographer who made you feel comfortable and captured every detail in motion, to the florist who made my dreams come true for beautiful florals.

I wanted the natural beauty of the lake to speak for itself, so I chose white florals, including my favorite peonies and roses, with soft greenery to surround them. 

It was truly the most magical morning! From getting ready with our girls and guys, enjoying special moments reading letters with my mom, the first look with my dad, and the most memorable, our first look together. Here are some of my favorites from the first half of our wedding day.
