Tell us more about your wedding. Is there a great proposal story? How did you choose your location? Any DIY tips? What else would you want everyone to know about your wedding?
We got married at the same location where my (Kassadie’s) parents got married. Very close friends of ours served as our officiant and read a passage during the ceremony.
In terms of tips, I learned that less is more. Simple things like candles, lanterns, and white flowers are just as beautiful as intricate decorations.
What was your experience with Adore?
It is hard to put into words how much I absolutely loved working with Adore. The staff is beyond accommodating and has a vested interest in every single bride they work with. They are kind, passionate, and professional. I had so many questions and they were able to help me with any concerns I had. They genuinely cared about how I felt in my dress and worked with me to find the best one. My mom and I are so grateful for Andrea, Lilli, and all of the Adore staff!
Are there any vendors that stood out to you as top notch? Who and Why?
All of our vendors were amazing! Caitlin and Luke Bachtold, our photographers, were always there to answer questions and offer advice. Adore, of course, will always hold a special place in my heart. You guys made me feel so much better about purchasing a new dress when my original one was completely wrong. You made me feel like it was OK to begin the dress search again and that we would find exactly what I was looking for, and we did!
