Today we bring you Tom and Holly’s gorgeous wedding planned in 3 months.
From the Bride: As a little girl I looked forward to the day that I would find the man I would spend the rest of my life with and for awhile there I wasn’t sure if that day would ever come! Now I know, God had just been preparing me for Tom and Tom for me all along.
I met Tom through friends at church. I thought he was so handsome and seemed very genuine in person that I was dying to know more about him. So I did a little investigating and found out that indeed he was as sweet and sincere as he appeared in to be. So with that my feeling for him began to develop! Soon our friendship grew from a simple email offering to mow my yard which turned into long phone calls, amazing dates and then meeting each other’s families. Tom is a wonderful father of a 4 year old boy named Cayden in which I fell in love with as well. Seeing Tom as a father reaffirmed to me the love that I already felt for him. It wasn’t long after this that we knew that we wanted to spend the rest of our lives together.
This past July, 2012 Tom proposed to me in a hot air balloon ride that he surprised me with! I was overwhelmed with emotion and felt so blessed that after all this time I had found the man with whom my soul completed.
This is were our wedding story begins! I knew instantly that I didn’t want to wait the traditional year to plan our wedding, so after discussions with our families and friends we decided to take 3 short months to put together the wedding of our dreams. After researching many venues and debating pro’s and con’s of each Tom and I decided to have our reception in a place close to home for us. We accepted a gracious offer from his amazing Aunt and Uncle’s to host the reception at their home. It was the best day of my life.
