CHOOSING OUR VENUE:
I had an image in my head of how I wanted our wedding to be, romantic & beautiful. Something from another time period. We both love history, so the Bell House was perfect for us!
ADVICE TO OTHER COUPLES:
Find creative ways to make your wedding reflect your personality. I looked at 5 wedding dress stores, but found Renee’s Bridal in Mt. Sterling and she was able to work with me on a custom gown.
