I get why you're here. Big traditional weddings wig you out. Maybe you prefer private, intimate settings. Maybe you think big weddings are wasteful. Maybe you have complicated family dynamics (hey, me too).
I'm here to help you create a definition of marriage that leaves you feeling free, inspired, connected to the outdoors and focused on your partner, not those other things.
