“I loved so many things about my wedding: the simple beauty of the Genesee Country Museum, especially Brooks Grove church and every second of the ceremony from the church, to the music, to walking down the aisle with my dad, to marrying my best friend and being married by my wonderful friend Lee. I loved being creative with planning and decorating for the reception.  A spring time wedding was what I always wanted, and I absolutely adored my dress.  Everything seemed so perfect!”
