COUPLE: Takara + Dustin



HOW DID YOU MEET? A mutual friend introduced Dustin and I, and we like to say the rest is history!

TELL US ABOUT YOUR PROPOSAL: Dustin proposed at our home with just the two of us. It was quiet, lowkey, and perfect - just our style.

WHAT IS YOUR WEDDING INSPIRATION AND STYLE/THEME FOR YOUR WEDDING? We are planning a classy rustic wedding, embracing our barn venue while incorporating moody, elegant details to elevate the vibe.

ANYTHING ELSE YOU'D LIKE TO SHARE ABOUT YOUR WEDDING JOURNEY SO FAR? I feel like everything has fallen into place, luckily. We have been thrilled with all of the wedding professionals we have invested in and can't wait to celebrate our day!
