Lukas & Baileigh’s NYE wedding in Fort Dodge, IA

 “-20 day, but a perfect day. Love was everywhere and everyone was all smiles. We felt so loved and blessed. From the cute flower girls, you couldn’t take your eyes off to the parents glowing for their kids entering marriage… it literally was a NYE we will never forget. We could not ask for better family and friends to celebrate with on our big day! As champagne sprayed everywhere and the balloons dropped at midnight reminding us it was a New Year, starting it as a married couple was a moment we will never forget. The energy and dancing at the reception never stopped… it was fantastic. We literally have the best people in our lives and we had the most amazing people working for us that day. We are truly grateful.

We could not have asked for a more perfect day

To Baileigh and Lukas,

Gosh, I don’t even know if I can find the words after this adventure – but I’ll try!  Thank you for opening up your hearts to me, treating me like family and for taking me on such a fantastic ride.  Not only are you both incredibly fun to be around, but you’re thoughtful and caring to boot.

My lifelong thanks to you both for entrusting your memories with me!  Congratulations and all the best wishes to you two (and let’s not leave out baby Day & Panda <3)

Thank you so much for everything!
