Brianna and Thornton
October 19, 2019

How They Met
Brianna and Thornton met in high school, but it wasn’t until after college that they reunited and started dating. Thornton was playing softball one evening near Brianna’s parents’ house and invited her to come watch. Brianna explains, “We were inseparable after that!” 

The Proposal
Thornton proposed on family land in Hanover. “We had always said that we would get married, build a house, and start a family on that land…It was so special when he proposed there as well.” It was just the two of them and once they got back home, Brianna was surprised to see their family waiting to celebrate.

The Details
It came as no surprise when Brianna and Thornton decided to get married on that same spot of land that is so special to them. “We couldn’t think of a better place to celebrate our love with all of our family and friends.” When planning their outdoor wedding, they didn’t want to sacrifice style. They elevated the space with a gorgeous tent from Party Perfect as well as luscious greenery and flowers, setting the ambiance. For their colors they went with warm, earthy tones, perfectly complimenting the fall leaves and crops in the backdrop. 

They had a traditional wedding with special details throughout. At their tented reception, they wanted their food and decor to really wow guests. And with the help of vendors, their guests’ jaws dropped when they saw the field transformed.

Brianna and Thornton’s favorite part of the day? “Dancing to the band with all of our family and friends! We love live music and dancing, so to have all our favorite people in one place to celebrate us in our favorite place in the world…it was an absolute dream come true!”
