How did y’all meet? He stole my heart at a softball tournament.

How did Parker pop the question… were you expecting it?  Yes, but he didn’t think I knew. We were at a picnic when Parker popped the question and a photographer was there to capture the moment.

Describe your wedding in three words? Fun… Gold… FUN!!

Now the details (theme, style, color, must-haves)?! Lots of sparkly gold details like the cake, bridesmaid dresses, table runners, etc)

What has been your favorite source for wedding inspiration (Blog, Magazine, etc)? Coastal Knot Bridal and Instagram

What have you loved most about planning your wedding? Picking my dress!!

What has been the most difficult? The guest list!

What are you most looking forward to on the wedding day? The honeymoon the next day.

Do you have any advice for newly engaged couples as they go through the planning process? Buy something you need for the wedding from every paycheck once you get engaged that way you are not stuck with a TON of expenses closer to the date.
