How We Met:
Tony and I met in the fourth grade. He swears he remembers the exact moment on the playground, but I'll just have to trust his memory. We grew up together in a tiny rural town and dated throughout elementary, high school, and college until we bought a house together in Jersey City with our two kitties. Our relationship has had its ups and downs, but ultimately has stood the test of time and we are super excited to begin this new chapter in life together.
The Wedding Day:
We decided to have a no fuss intimate wedding ceremony at City Hall in Jersey City, where we live. Eventually we will throw a cocktail reception party for friends and family, but its hard to find an empty weekend since I have so many amazing couples getting married this year. Besides our official ceremony, I was excited to have my friends and colleagues help me make my wedding day special. I worked with vendors I've known and been friends with for years. I was most looking forward to getting a portrait at our house with our furry children, which of course they did not cooperate.
Bri's Wedding Planning Tip:
Trust your own decisions and intuition. Do what feels right for you. Things can become complicated and stressful when you have too much input coming in from all directions.
