JAN­UARY 27, 2018 We had a sur­prise wed­ding.

We orig­i­nally told guests our wed­ding would be in June 2018. When friends and fam­ily en­tered the Broadview Ho­tel they had no idea they were ac­tu­ally at­tend­ing our nup­tials!

I was orig­i­nally against the idea of hav­ing a first look.

I had al­ways en­vi­sioned the first mo­ment I saw my hus­band be­ing when I walked down the aisle, but when we de­cided to do a sur­prise wed­ding, we knew a first look was a must.

Adam and I wanted the wed­ding to be a com­bi­na­tion of for­mal flair meets com­fort­able el­e­gance.

The green­ery, can­dles and gold ac­cents re­ally made the room feel warm and mag­i­cal. We bal­anced the for­mal, ro­man­tic set­ting with cans of beer and cham­pagne when guests ar­rived, then the re­cep­tion in­cluded cham­pagne buck­ets of beer and fries.

The next sur­prise for guests came when Adam and I spoke first at the re­cep­tion.

We started not­ing ma­jor mile­stones that led up to that evening. At the end of our speech we an­nounced the sec­ond big­gest sur­prise of the night and the big­gest mile­stone to date—July 22nd, our first baby’s due date! Guests were com­pletely shocked. It was an in­cred­i­ble mo­ment—we feel so grate­ful we could share it with the peo­ple clos­est to us.
