How We Met:
"Jordy and I met at a camp at Lake of the Ozark's called Windermere back in 2018. At that time, Jordy was technically my boss, but he was the boss of a different department so....... :) We hit it off really fast after I turned him down six times. I accepted the seventh time and our relationship blossomed from there".
"It could not have been more perfect for us!
We got engaged on July 30th of 2019 during a visit since we were in a long distance relationship.
Mom's words were 'No refunds or returns.' !
We were sitting on the couch at Jordy's apartment where he formally asked me to be his wife. I said yes!
I honestly did not expect to get a ring because I told him he didn't have to get me one, but he did anyway. After that, we updated facebook and called a few people to tell them the news!"
What were you looking forward to the most on your wedding day?
"There were two things on the wedding day that I was really excited for.
First, I was really excited to walk down the aisle with my dad and see Jordy at the other end, to see what his reaction would be.
The second thing that I was looking forward to was our first dance together. We only practiced it one time and it is really hard to dance in a large dress, but I felt good about it. Honestly, our wedding date could not have been more perfect than what it was!"
Choosing Timber Line Barn:
"The reason that we chose Timberline is because Jordy and I both loved the venue's location, the people running it, and that it was so affordable! Being the woman I am, I loved the idea of a rustic wedding and an outdoor ceremony and the building is gorgeous!"
Our Love Story:
"I love our love story! At this point we need to write a book about getting married during a pandemic. Our original date was April 6th, 2020 so we rescheduled because of the virus to June the 8th hoping that would be a better time to get family together. We didn't want to wait another 2 months to get married so we planned for April 4th at a friend's house. Two days before that, Jordy tested positive for the coronavirus, so we, yet again, had to reschedule the wedding for April 15th in our friends' yard. So finally on April 15th, 2020 we said our I-Dos and it could not have been more perfect! So Jordy and I technically had two weddings, one for us and one for our families."
Advice for Future Couples:
"Try to stay as organized as possible! This helped Jordy and I so much! We even made a lot of the decorations and my bouquet ourselves, so that way we get what we want no matter what. It is also just a lot of fun! Try to avoid getting married in the middle of a pandemic, but regardless, marrying your best friend will be the best day of your life! Pinterest will also be your best friend!"
"In all honesty, we never really had a set budget, we just worked out how much we wanted to spend on each part of the wedding and like I said we did make a lot and borrow a lot of decorations from friends and from the Goodie Barn too! I don't think that we exceeded $5,000. We also had a lot of help from my parents and grandparents! I just made a point to really think through things rather than just spur of the moment dishing out the money. Making sure things go with the theme without costing an arm and a leg."
Standout Moment of the Day:
"The big standout moment at our wedding would have to be Jordy and I's first dance as husband and wife because we just had fun with it even though we had only practiced once and I didn't pull my train up. We just got to enjoy singing and dancing together!"
