Brandon and I got married on September 28, 2013, at a beautiful refurbished barn in Fort Mill, SC. Being the DIY lover I am, I DIY'ed most of the wedding decor to suit our outdoor loving personalities. I started the wedding planning journey a year before our wedding date and quickly realized that while there are a ton of ideas out there (thank you Pinterest!), wedding planning is a strenuous yet exhilarating process that can be so much more special if you find the aspects that fit the two of you. Here is my journey through wedding planning in a series of posts: **(If they don't have a link yet, it's because it is a post in the works so Stay Tuned!!)**
