A Complete and "Fuller" Wedding Review

Dating for 3 years. Pestering to get engaged. Ring shopping. Getting engaged. Planning a wedding. Moving the wedding up a year. Having the wedding. Wedding withdrawal. Those were the steps I passed through on the road to and after my husband Brett and my nuptials on September 5, 2010. During the planning process I met and worked with so many great people who made our wedding the best it could be, and I have been meaning to write something for quite a while.

Life got in the way, but I finally sat down to put my thoughts into words. Here is a breakdown of all of our different vendors and our experience working with them. I am hoping this can be of use to anyone planning a wedding in Northwest Indiana or for those who know someone planning a wedding.
