What were the top three priorities for you in planning your wedding?
– The Band (Our whole family loves to dance!)
– The Venue
– The Food and Catering

What wedding traditions or cultural traditions did you incorporated into your wedding and what did they mean to you? We did not so much include wedding traditions, but tried to incorporate our lifestyle and personality into the details of our big day:

Jarrod and I both grew up in the Lakes Region and originally met competing in our shared passion, skiing. Each of our table names and place cards were a local mountains we have spent time enjoying as a couple.

One of our other favorite pastimes is enjoying a good microbrew. For the wedding, Jarrod spent endless weekends building his own hand crafted bar for our rustic wedding. Each guest received a mason jar (with handle) as a wedding favor. The jars contained their place cards and were used for the self serve draft beer bar.

Were there any places where you broke the rules in your wedding planning? Why and how did you do that? Both of us come from a Catholic upbringing. Our decision to use an ordained minister (who happened to be a close friend of the family) was certainly viewed as a unique and out of the box decision. We love the outdoors and our family, it was important for us to have both on our big day. Including Uncle Bob in our ceremony at such a beautiful venue made the day both memorable and personal.

What was your biggest wedding planning success? Our biggest success was getting both the groom and groomsmen off the lake in time to make it to the ceremony. After losing track of time enjoying the last moments before the wedding out on the boat, the boys ended up getting dressed from the back of the rented suburban!

What was the most important thing that you learned through the wedding planning process and what would you tell other brides-to-be? Enjoy the process. I spent so much time counting down the days until our big day that I almost forgot to enjoy all of the little stuff. After our wedding day was finally said and done, it felt as though I had only blinked and it was all over. It was a more beautiful wedding than I ever could have imagined and an incredible start to a blessed life. But, if I could do it all over, I would sit back and enjoy all of the moments just a bit more.
