One of the hardest parts about having a mountain wedding is finding wedding vendors who are reliable,  professional, and talented.

Don't forget t scroll down for Madison's real  mountain wedding planning advice!

Where did you find your inspiration?

We found our inspiration through the internet, such as, pinterest, pictures from Google images. We also did a lot of research on many celebrities weddings, as well as the show My Fair Wedding by David Tutera.

What are three things you're glad you did?

  • We invited the right people to the wedding;
  • I made my own thank you gifts (all homemade sugar cookies with our initial on them) was way more sentimental and tasty;
  • We hired a talented photographer.

Three things you wish you hadn't worried about?

  • Not being able to fit in my dress (whether it was gaining or loosing weight);
  • The ceremony starting on time;
  • Whether or not my guests would have a good time, and getting feedback  from guests during/after our reception.

What is your very best hindsight advice?

My best advice is have the wedding of your dreams, no need to worry about costs, decorations, food any of it. At the end of the day it's better for you to remember that you are marrying your best friend. Whether the wedding went smoothly or terribly, it's all about who you two are and your future together. You guys are just creating your fairytale, might as well start it out stress free and focus on the love you have for one another.
