This was the day they had both been waiting for. It was only fitting to commit their lives to each other in the church where they had spent so much time together. With the help of loving family and friends, the day was made even more special.

The day began in the bride's hotel room getting ready with her closest girlfriends.

 Love her gorgeous Jinny's Bridal wedding dress and matching lace pumps.

The jewelry was made by the Groom's mom and Sterling. How beautiful!

Sterling and Gabe opted for a first look, so they could spend more time with family and friends immediately following the ceremony.

What made it even more special, was the exact spot they chose to see each other, was where Gabe proposed months before.

The bride added a touch of "something blue" in her purple hydrangea bouquet.

None of their family or friends had seen them kiss, so Gabe kissed her on the forehead. ;)

The reception venue had a lot of rustic elements with reclaimed wood, which almost felt like an intimate barn setting.

Can you believe this cake was made by the Maid of Honor? It looks great on the tree stump cake holder.

The chalkboard artists did a great job throughout the walls and signs. It really added to the space!

I gifted them those mugs with their names on it. I love that they incorporated it on their wedding day!
