Ben and I got married this past April in Garner (right outside of Raleigh) at The Rand-Bryan House. We are both from Texas, and even met in Waco, but wanted to get married in Raleigh since we are starting our lives together here. Once I started planning the wedding and saw how quickly everything adds up, I definitely seriously considered eloping, haha. Everyone has a different vision for their wedding day, but I'm glad we decided to do a wedding ceremony and reception in the town we live in and invite our community and families. The people made it what it was, and I'm so thankful for everyone who traveled from afar to celebrate us, and the team of people who helped pull it off.

That morning it was pouring! I was a little bummed to see it was raining, but also just so excited that I was able to let it go. Once at the venue, I danced out some pre-ceremony jitters and slipped on my dress. It felt surreal! The time before the ceremony dragged on while simultaneously passing at high speed. While the girls and I took photos outside (it stopped raining!) Ben got ready at his best friend's (also his best man and our officiant) house.
