Planning a wedding with the goal of keeping things simple and elegant is easier said than done. But I must admit, Karley and Paul pulled it off perfectly! By hosting the wedding in Karley’s hometown of Akron, Ohio, the entire day felt cozy, and having the reception at her family’s lake property just added that extra personal touch.

We asked Karley and Paul what their favorite part of the day was, and they both responded “All of it!”  And I believe them. They were able to strike the perfect balance of hosting their guests and enjoying the celebration. If you needed to find either Karley or Paul all you had to do was look at the middle of the dance floor. With amazing tunes from the live Elite Show Band  the party was a blast, and the send off at the end of the night was epic.

Tip for couples still planning their wedding… focus on the most important things, and do not stress over the small things. Do this and you will not only enjoy the road leading to the wedding, but you will truly have the best day of your life when the big day arrives!
