When Wedding Dreams Become Reality…

We all dream of our own versions of a fairytale wedding. Tori had always dreamed of having a barn wedding. Crooked Willow was the rustic, yet elegant backdrop to her perfect day! She and her now-husband, Nathan, tied the knot on a beautiful sunny June day in 2022.

Their Story

Tori met Nathan at a friend’s birthday party. They hit it off immediately! It wasn’t long until they found themselves on a family fishing boat one evening. As the sun set, Nathan got down on one knee. “Will you be my forever? Will you marry me?” (SO romantic!) Tori said yes ,of course; and the two quickly got to work planning their upcoming nuptials.

Their Theme

Tori and Nathan’s wedding theme was rustic elegance, just as Tori had always dreamed of. They decorated their day with navy, wine, and blush tones. Both Tori and Nathan agreed that the first look was one of their favorite moments. Neither of them had seen each other’s wedding attire before the big day. In Tori’s own words: “The anticipation was real!”

The night ended, as great weddings do, with a dance party! Tori and her grandpa shared a dance together. They had lost Tori’s grandmother just a year before, right around the time the couple had gotten engaged. Dancing with her grandpa, was the one thing Tori had been wanting to do since her grandmother’s passing. It was such an unforgettable and heartfelt moment!

Congrats to the happy couple! We wish you many years of married bliss!
