The Wedgewood Weddings team loved working with Kari and Matt to make their weekday wedding everything they had dreamed it would be. Our team was able to help the couple save money by planning a Thursday wedding, opening up more budget for adding beautiful details to their ceremony and reception:
“Kari and Matt were such a pleasure to work with. I first met with them during their personal consultation back in October 2018 just loved their story. Kari is a teacher and Matt works for the Goodyear Police Department. Because they were open to a Thursday wedding, they were able to save money while still getting the wedding of their dreams! They even had their dog, Jack, be involved in the ceremony as their ring bearer! How cute!”
