How did you two meet or how did he propose?:
We met at the Scottsdale Oktoberfest playing cornhole - he picked me as his partner and we dominated from that day on.

Were you happy with the venue?:
Absolutely loved my venue; it was exactly what I wanted!

Describe the theme or color scheme of your wedding, and what you chose for your table setting at the reception:
Color scheme was Sage Green (Shantung fabric made this much more vibrant than what you initially think when you think sage), navy blue, ivory, and silver accents. I was going for classic simple elegance. Our table settings were a 3 piece floating candle votive with roses submersed in the water.

What piece of advice would you give other brides planning their big day?:
Hire a wedding coordinator - even with myself and my retired mom there are moments that the experts would be helpful and put your mind at ease. Also I personally look back and know my mom did so much that day that I wish she would have been able to sit back and enjoy it more.
