The Proposal

The proposal took place in Gatlinburg, Tennessee. I fell ill with a stomach virus the day before but I was determined to go on this weekend getaway! We stayed in the coziest cabin at the top of the mountain. I intended on enjoying some wine and soaking up the beautiful views together but instead spent the first evening getting sick. The next day we did our best to get out and explore some. Trent proposed on the sky lift on December 16, 2017 and of course I said yes! Despite the circumstances, it was a great trip and we left with so much to look forward to!

In Preparation

We wanted an intimate vibe and smaller wedding so destination wedding it was! I began to look into venues in Florida and realized it would be difficult to plan a wedding with no intentions of visiting the area before. I came across A Wedding Collection and saw Renee offered all inclusive packages that were still customizable. Being rather indecisive, I liked having a few options to choose from but also having the freedom to incorporate my own ideas. We emailed back and forth for a year planning the magical day. I really enjoyed the entire planning process!

The Big Day

I wish we could live our wedding day over and over! We spent the day getting ready with our friend and family before the festivities began. I was much more nervous than I anticipated but felt better once I saw Trent. The ceremony was short and sweet and the reception was prefect! We were so pleased with the venue and the wedding planners were on it. We were also blessed with perfect weather. Everyone enjoyed themselves while celebrating our love! It was our dream wedding and we wouldn’t have changed a single thing.

The Retreat

We opted to take our honeymoon later since we were already traveling for the wedding. We are going to Kauai and Maui this October! I have been to the islands a few times and Trent has never been. He is more of a beach goer and I am more of an explorer so we’ll be doing a mix of both. I can’t wait to share this experience with him. We’ll be there for his birthday as well which makes it that much sweeter! We are so excited for our adventure on the beautiful islands!
