Sean & Katie Wendling

How did you meet your (now) husband?
We actually met through I signed up for a free trial when I received an email from Sean, but I couldn't actually open his email unless I paid for a subscription. I decided to go for it so I could read his email - I'm happy to say my $30 investment paid off very well!

Where did you draw your inspiration/ideas from?
Pinterest - I don't know how people planned a wedding without it! My mom was also very helpful throughout the whole process. She had lots of great ideas that were also inspired by Pinterest and by her experience from my sister's weddings. She actually put together the ceremony flowers and reception centerpieces all by herself. I couldn't have done it without her!

What was your favorite memory from your wedding day?
Marrying Sean of course! Aside from that, it was being surrounded by my family and so many friends. Many of our guests are not from Kansas City and made long trips to come to celebrate with us. It meant so much to have all of those people surrounding us and to celebrate with people that I hadn't seen in quite a while.

What advice would you give to other brides?
I'll give the same advice I received from several other people - enjoy your wedding day and take lots of mental pictures. So many people said that their wedding day just flew by and that they didn't really remember a lot of what happened. I took that to heart and made sure to make a conscious effort to focus on what was happening at every moment.
