What was the vision for your wedding?
Originally, I wanted to have an average size ceremony and reception with all of our closest family and friends, but we decided in the end to do an intimate ceremony with just our parents and siblings, then a reception where we invited everyone else to come! We kept everything very minimal and simple and it turned out perfect.
How did it go the day-of?
Our day started off with us driving to St. Maries into his family property where we had our ceremony spot picked out with these beautiful tree roots. We had our first look and did private vows together then proceeded to have our ceremony officiated by Jace's brother. We took photos with everyone then parted ways from our family. Jace and I then went to the St Maries River where we had a picnic and went fishing together. It was so perfect to have that time alone together. Afterward, we headed back to Coeur d'Alene to Fine Brewed where guests were waiting to celebrate with us. It was a very untraditional wedding but it was definitely the best day that we could have asked for.
What is your #1 tip to future brides?
Do what is going to make yourself and your spouse happy. There is so much pressure from others to include everyone and everything, but you do not have to. It is your day so make it perfect for you and your spouse and no one else!
