Ceremony & Reception Location: Best Western Lamplighter Inn ( “The Lamplighter had everything we were looking for! The Lamplighter wedding service went above and beyond for the whole day.

Photographer: Woodgate Photography ( “I really liked the dramatic light photos Erin did and when we met her she was so warm and sincere. My favorite shots are the candid shots of us and our guests, it really brings back the feeling of the day. I also love the dramatic lighting shots we received and have all of them displayed in our home. Woodgate Photography captured the essence of our wedding and I look back often on the photos.” – K

Biggest challenge: “Our biggest challenge was staying within budget. The Lamplighter helped with that since they had an all-in-one package and we knew the cost per guest.” – K

Fav wedding memory: “Walking down the aisle and seeing my future husband standing there and getting to celebrate with all our family & friends.” – K

Advice from one couple to another: “Make sure you meet your vendors and sign a contract. Try to enjoy every minute of the day as it will fly by. Get a good photographer that can capture the day, those will be your memories you look back on. Make the day about the two of you, it doesn’t matter that everyone else is doing this or that, all that matters is you are marrying the love of your life and your friends and family are there to help you celebrate that.” – K&A
