Willow Creek Farm | 8.24.19
We reached out to one our of lovely couples from this past wedding season, Taylor + Matt, to see if they would share their story & experience getting married at Willow Creek Farm with us! We enjoyed getting to know & work with the Stephens', and we are so excited to be able to feature their Big Day on the blog today! Continue reading to see their story!
"We met in college in 2013. Our first date was only two weeks before school ended and summer started. We lived an hour and a half apart....we decided to give it a try anyways! Over the summer we would meet each other half way in between our homes and took turns meeting each other’s parents. We quickly fell in love. We’ve been together ever since! We were together 6 years when we go married :) It will be 7 years this June."
"I knew that he was going to propose, because we went together to pick out my ring. However, of course Matt was still able to surprise me when the day came haha I came home from a long day of my clinical rotation and the house was silent. I walked in the bedroom and he was down on one knee, ring and flowers in hand :) it was very private and sweet. I wouldn’t have wanted it any differently."
"The planning process was so so fun! You guys made us feel so special every step of the way. I had a vision and I never had to sacrifice anything. I have to give a huge shout out to my mom as well for helping me with all of the decorations. She has always had a better eye for detail than me!"
"I have pretty bad anxiety and was terrified that I would freak out the day of, but I remember waking up completely calm. I was totally at peace the entire day. My bridesmaids, my mom, mother in law and I all relaxed in the bridal suite, drank mimosas, and got pampered with hair and makeup. The ceremony was everything I ever imagined. We danced all night surrounded by friends and family, and when it was over I felt like we just threw the party of the year!"
"I think my favorite thing is getting to experience these next big steps in our lives together. Moving, starting new careers, buying a home, starting a family. All of it is so exciting with Matt by my side."
