The newlyweds kept with the rustic theme for their decor with pretty flowers and vintage accents.

Bottle openers served as a practical favor and a table chock full of the cutest cupcakes satisfied guests’ sweet tooth!

How did Spencer meet the love of her life?

“Steven and I met through a mutual friend. We were set up to go on a blind date which I was hesitant about at first. I wasn't a big believer on being "set up." One mini golf date was all it took. From then on, the rest is history!”

That must’ve been one heck of a mini golf game! How did Steven pop the question?

“Gosh, biggest surprise of my life! It was Fourth of July weekend, and Steven told me that he would be out of town for a guys golf weekend. He was sending me text message play by plays on how they were golfing and everything. He was so sneaky! I had plans to have a girls day with two of my best friends. We got manicures then went to The Lighthouse restaurant in Cedar Lake. My friend told me she wanted to take pictures. We walked to pier for what I thought was just to take pictures. Steven was waiting for me on the pier and proposed. The surprise didn't end there. We went inside and both of our families were there waiting to celebrate! They were able to see the whole proposal. Then, we get to our house which was decorated with all of our friends waiting to continue the celebration.”

That is the best!! Steven sounds like a definite keeper!

After she got the ring it was time to find the dress!

“My dress buying experience was short, but sweet! I only went to two locations to look, and that's all it took. I loved every second of dress shopping.”

How did she know her dress was "the one"?

“So, I at first did not fall in love with any dress when I saw them on the rack. I wasn't too sure I would even find my dress that day. When I put my dress on, I just knew. I didn't want to take it off! Every detail of my dress was perfect.”

Let’s move onto wedding planning! What was Spencer’s favorite part of planning?

“Seeing so many different ideas come together. Getting crafty and creative was a blast.”

What about her not-so-favorite part?

“The stress for sure! Waiting on RSVPs was not fun for me!”

When the wedding day arrived, was there a moment that really stood out to Spencer?

“My favorite moment of our wedding was the initial moment that I saw Steven right before I was about to walk down the aisle. We decided to not do a first look, and I wouldn't change it for anything.”

Any advice for current brides-to-be?

“Seriously, don't stress! Enjoy the whole process because it all goes by way too quickly, especially the day of.

Have fun! Make the day your dream day. Don't let others opinions change your mind on how you want your best day ever to be. Soak in every moment of wedding planning and the day of because it all really goes by way too fast.”
