We love Monica and Ben’s charming rustic lakeside wedding, and how they were able to incorporate sentimental touches every step of the way. The couple was kind enough to share their video and touching story with us – we hope you love it too!
My mother was diagnosed with terminal cancer shortly after Ben and I were engaged. Although we had not made any wedding plans yet, I knew I wanted my mother with me when I found the dress of my dreams. We went to Raffine in Stillwater, MN and my mom selected several gowns, but all along I knew which one I wanted – I saved it for last. When I came out in the gown (Jim Hjelm 8011) my dad started to tear up-that was all it took for us to know that it was the one. I absolutely love it and could have tried on 100 more and not found something so perfect!(more…)
