We were married in Grand Lake, Colorado on July 2, 2016. I planned and executed nearly every aspect of my wedding with a ton of help from family and friends of course. My goal was to stay under $10,000 for a 110 person destination forest/barn wedding and I am proud to say that I was able to achieve that goal. With a ton of hard work, research, and some creativity I was able to have the wedding of my dreams. When I look back I am filled with such happiness that I was able to marry the love of my life and celebrate with all of our family and friends. I am also so incredibly happy that we were able to pull off such a feat. I will be honest, it was not easy. Wedding planning really became my second job and I had to make a couple compromises to achieve all that I wanted but in the end it was near perfect!
