Don’t worry about what people tell you you ‘have to have’—your wedding can be incredibly simple and doesn’t need all the extras.
— Kellen, Bride

ON THE VIBE

"We were looking for an intimate day with our closest family and friends. Neither of us were too concerned with a specific aesthetic—instead, we were looking for a specific 'vibe' that was casual and romantic. "

ON THE INSPIRATION

"We were most concerned about our guests’ experience—to throw them a great party as they helped us celebrate our marriage."

FUNNIEST MEMORY

"Brides: figure out how to bustle your dress before your wedding day. I ended up naked in the back of a store, bustling my dress myself because no one could figure out how."

WORDS OF WISDOM

"Make sure planning is spread equally (or, at least, equitably) between the bride and the groom. Your wedding day is for both of you, so both should be involved in some way."
