4 years ago today I married the best friend I could ever ask for. It has been a crazy adventure since then, with ups and with downs, but through it all his love has been unyielding and my love for him has only grown.
As we planned our wedding it was a necessity to plan creatively. Though working with a tight budget, we were able to pull off the wedding we wanted by utilizing thrift stores, yard sales, DIY, hand-me-downs, and the helpful hands of our family and friends. Here is a look back at our special day!
We were lucky enough to get to have our wedding at a family friend's farm in King William, VA. This house is such a dream and it's even more beautiful in person. The wedding party walked this path to a circular rose garden filled with our family and friends who were seated on hay bales and hand-pieced quilts.

Our wedding would not have been the same without the help of our family and friends. Family members came all the way from California to work and help make our day special. My Aunt was our rock star in the weeks leading up to our wedding. She made all of the bouquets and flower arrangements, recreated and altered my Grandma's dress for me, and made a matching dress for my flower girl out of a vintage wedding dress we found at a thrift shop! On the day of she took on the role of wedding planner and even offered to yell at anyone I wanted! ("They can be mad at me all they want, I'm going back to California!") The work she did leading up to and on the day of our wedding was the best gift she could have ever given us. Her creativity and attitude of selflessness allowed my mom to relax and enjoy the day and left me without a care in the world. Love you, Aunt Keely!
