From the lovely bride...
Aaron and I met at the Northern Kentucky Chamber of Commerce in November of 2012. I had just helped move my father’s company from Cincinnati, Ohio to Northern Kentucky that past February. When we were finally moved into the new location, I decided to join the Chamber in hopes of meeting local businesses. In December of 2012, I decided the only way to meet local business was to get involved. So, I joined the Business Engagement committee and Aaron happened to be on the committee! Love did not happen right away. We ended up showing up to the January 2013 meeting early and got to know each other for a bit before the meeting. Aaron is a Financial Planner and I am all about bringing new business to her father’s company. I encouraged Aaron to come and introduce himself to TBS Meat Distributors in hopes of getting some added business. Little did I know, I would meet my best friend and husband-to-be in the weeks following his visit to T.B.S. We got engaged in November of 2013 and decided to wed on Valentine’s Day 2015. PGA national was the venue of choice. Not only is it home to the Honda Classic, but it is also a beautiful venue. We both enjoy playing golf and so do our friends and family who would be attending the wedding. PGA has accent colors throughout their resort and the magical color is RED. Perfect for a Valentine’s Day wedding! Being a destination wedding, we decided it was only practical to hire a wedding planner. Boy, is that a must in the wedding world! We hired Your Special Day by Joni and with her help came all of the other fabulous vendor recommendations! Being Catholic, we wanted to have an outdoor Catholic wedding, which is very hard considering priests do not like to marry outside of their congregation. We searched and found Franciscans of South Florida Catholic Ministry. Father Luis R Lopez was willing and able to come marry us. The day was perfect!
