Fast-forward through two and a half years of dating, and Tec and I were standing in a barn in the countryside of Tennessee, singing hymns, walking down aisles, pledging vows, and kissing the bride! From the get-go, our vision of the Big Day was in sync, and after we made the big decisions (photographer, location… and dress!) everything else just fell into place. It also helped that we agreed that our only splurge would be the photographer. Go figure, right? Ha. (FYI, my husband is a wedding photographer. There was really only one option for him: Jose Villa.) We knew that if we had someone making our day look as epic as it actually was, we would get creative and work out the relatively tight budget accordingly. And with tons of sweat and love from our friends and family, a beautiful day full of love and romance and memories was pulled off. I truly can’t imagine it having been any more “us”.
