The Story
The pair met through work, and knew they wanted to be more than co-workers. They went on their first date in July 2010, and he proposed a few months later—on a very happy New Year’s Eve!

The Details
A lot of thought went into the wedding, including significant colors and flowers to honor Cortney’s late mother’s favorites. Not to mention, the bride had 17 bridemaids to represent specific times in her life.

The Party
After dinner, the couple and their guests danced all night to tunes by LG Entertainment. In lieu of favors, the couple made a donation to the Pink Door Non-Profit Organization—a group the bride started in memory of her mother.
