What creative or personal aspects did you use in your wedding?

Unfortunately, both of our grandmothers had passed before our wedding. To keep them both there in spirit, I wore James’ grandmother’s earrings and used her clutch, and wore one of my grandma’s anklets during the ceremony.

What is the most memorable moment of your day?

My husband was late to our ceremony because he and his whole family got lost coming up the mountain that we were getting married on!

We hired Simply Eloped. They took care of everything for the ceremony, including securing the permit for the venue, the floral arrangement, the officiant, the photographer, videographer and more!

What was the biggest thing you did to save money?

Our biggest splurge was driving across the country. We drove from the Midwest all the way to California! It was a great experience to see the country and meet new people along the way.
