I was never one of those girls that planned their wedding from a young age but now that I'm doing it, I'm enjoying the process! My fiance and I have been together almost four years. We love the outdoors, camping, skiing, cooking and eating lots of food. We have 2 cats and a dog that we adore.

Happily married 🎉
