The proposal:

Nov. 14, 2020, we were hosting a Friendsgiving in our new home we had just purchased. Josh brought me inside to help me look for his phone that he said he had misplaced. While we were searching, everyone headed into the backyard, where Josh finally led me. There was a backdrop set up that said “Will you marry me?” but Josh couldn’t wait to get down on one knee and didn’t even make it to the backdrop. We were so blessed to be surrounded by our closest friends and family during such an exciting time!

The wedding dress:

Having the perfect dress was always my dream for my wedding day, and Bella’s Bridal did not fall short. I said yes to the second dress I put on and couldn’t have loved it more! My mom and a few of my bridesmaids were able to be there with me for that special moment.

Favorite moment from the big day:

Our absolute favorite moment of the wedding day was our first look. From our second date I knew I was going to marry Josh, and I have always pictured seeing him on our wedding day. I was so nervous walking down the hill to him, and when I finally got to him, there was such a feeling of relief. Many tears were flowing from both of us at that moment.
