My dream Pinterest wedding

Let me start with this... I found this venue on Pinterest 6 years ago & I knew me and my then boyfriend would get married here. Sure enough when we got engaged in 2020, this is the first and only venue we toured. The owner, Jeremy is amazing and so so helpful and makes sense Because his two right hand Wo(men) are kick ass as well!!! We love Cece & Lexi... they dealt with me for 22 months!!! And never once made
Me feel like my questions/ concerns/ craziness was unwanted. They all made the whole experience... 688 days of it ... MAGIC. NOW the DAY OF THE WEDDING was like a dream... absolutely perfect .. from my point of view not a single thing went wrong!!! Lexi made sure I had the best day... no stress and was always dancing and enjoying myself.
Allllll my guests loved not only the venue, but the employees as well... on their way out at the end of the line you would think they all knew Lexi her whole life. She truly was one with the family!
I truly wish some nights never ended!

Jeremy, Cece, Lexi you haven鈥檛 seen the last of me... Hey who knows... maybe a baby shower will be held there in the figure ;)
