How did the two of you meet?

Describe the proposal.
Just before a huge storm hit, he took me to a lake to walk our dog. With all the static electricity, my hair was actually starting to stand up. While I was trying to keep my hair down, Michael got down on one knee and asked me to marry him. Filled with embarrassment and elation all at the same time, I said yes and it started to rain on us. I will never forget my first time being kissed in the rain. Where he proposed…
Theme of the wedding?
Simply wedding, black and white with light green accent.
Favorite detail of the wedding?
Sparkler exit (Thanks to Hendri’s) and having Liz as a photographer.
She was phenomenal and caught all the best moments for us to remember.
Favorite moment during the day?
Seeing Michael for the first time that day. I was so nervous about everything going well, and seeing him calmed me down.
Worse moment of the day?
Rushing through make-up to get to pictures on time.
Finding the dress…
I didn’t want to take it off.
Biggest challenge you had with planning the wedding?
Living in Columbia, MO and planning a wedding in St. Louis, MO.
Words of wisdom to future brides.
A great photographer was objective number one for us. They find the beauty in every situation.
Any unexpected funny moments?
So many good laughs were had that day. From my mom sticking her hand up the rear of my dress to hide the extra ties (with no warning!) (Liz caught that moment) and watching Michael’s 10 year old cousin bust out some dance moves during the reception.
How was your wedding day? Everything and more?
