Hi there! Lovely to meet you – I’m Molly, and my fiancé is Joshua. We’ve been on a beautiful journey together for the past 7 years, and now we can’t wait to share our wedding-planning adventure with all of you! Everything we’ve envisioned for our wedding day is coming together a little more with each day. We’re blessed to get to celebrate in a private garden location in Omaha, Nebraska, with a boho elegant vibe and a rich color palette of navy, burgundy and soft pinks. Although planning everything for the wedding is so exciting, we are adamant about keeping what comes after the wedding day (our marriage) first in our minds. We’re using this period of time to grow even closer by designing our special day in a way that symbolizes what love means to us. It’s fulfilling to get to know one another more and more as each decision is made based on our different personalities. I’ve been in the wedding industry myself for almost 10 years so I’ve had a lot of time to think about what I want/don’t want for our day. I’m looking forward to sharing all my findings as the next 10 months progress!

FROM THE BRIDE: Our wedding was, unequivocally, us. Neither of us could stop laughing or smiling – as we said our vows, we could barely contain ourselves. It all felt so natural and intimate. Our wedding style was very classic and personal. We chose the venue because I had had a dream after we got engaged about a greenhouse and, after searching together, we stumbled upon the newly-opened conservatory at Lauritzen Gardens. The conservatory reminded us of the beauty of Dominica where we adventured together, so we thought it was only fitting to start our greatest adventure yet somewhere that reminded us of the island. Reflecting back one of my favorite memories was dancing to “Unchained Melody” for the first time with my husband – the song that I fell in love with when I was little and wanted, some day, to dance at my wedding to – and the first song that Andrew, unknowing of that fact, ever played for me.
