Would you like to be featured as a JLM Couture Real Bride?
Courtney and Corey
We met three years ago, four weeks after I moved to St Louis for a job, and sparks flew from there. Corey proposed to me when we were in Ireland, visiting his family's farm and meeting his 3rd cousins for the first time. As soon as he asked me to marry him, I cried, what seemed to be forever, because of the joy, love, and excitement I was experiencing! A year later, we got married in Iowa, where I'm originally from. We chose to get married at one of our favorite summer beach locations and have our wedding reception at the same place as well. We wanted our ceremony to intimate and so just our immediate family members and a few friends. Since we both have many siblings, it was easy to pick our wedding party because our siblings were either a groomsmen or bridesmaid! We also have nieces and nephews that fit the role of our Ring Bearers, Flower Girl, or Junior Bridesmaids. One of my favorite things about our wedding day is how 'casual' it seemed to be, yet 'wedding-like.' Between our pictures and ceremony, we had time to stop by our local Brewery and have a drink with our wedding party which was so fun and unexpected! The evening was celebrated with the rest of our friends and family that were also invited to the reception. Since Corey and I are from two different parts of the Midwest, we were fortunate enough to also celebrate our wedding in St. Louis two weeks later with the rest of his friends and family that couldn't make it to Iowa.
