Kelley & Steven at La Luna High Falls
October 7, 2019

We met through a mutual friend. We both happened to be at the same bar one night, and she introduced us.

Steven created his own book about our love story. He presented it to me not too long before Christmas, so I assumed it was an early Christmas present. On the last page, he asked me to marry him. When I looked up, he was down on one knee, and I said “yes!”

We both really wanted an industrial-style venue, so we ventured out and finally found La Luna. We fell in love with the space, as well as the view of the falls and the gorgeous outside patio area.

I used The Knot app checklist as a general timeline for wedding planning, as well as Pinterest for decor inspiration.

We knew we would regret it if we didn’t!

We each got each other gifts for the day of our wedding. I also got my father an embroidered handkerchief because I knew he would be emotional!

Throughout the process, you’re going to feel pressured to try to please everyone. Please remember that this is YOUR day, and stay true to yourself!

I love that we decided to recite our vows to each other privately, during our first look. We wanted to keep things personal and intimate. I also love that we decided to take 10 minutes after the ceremony to sneak away and talk. It was important for us to spend the first few moments of being married together alone, while we reflected on the commitment we just shared.

Keep it simple! Don’t drive yourself crazy, and have fun!

All of our vendors were absolutely amazing to work with. We highly recommend them to anyone who is planning a wedding!
