For their honeymoon, the couple went the Cayman Islands, BritishWest Indies. They are now residing in Huntsville.
“Our wedding was mid centurymodern inspired as we collect 1950’s/1960’s antiques and items related to tiki/cocktail culture. All of the decor was either found at antique stores, flea markets, and thrift stores from all over Alabama, or DIY’d by the bride/her dad. Our favorite thing to do together is getting out and driving the backroads to see what we find, so this gave us a great reason to do it!”
