HONEYMOON DESTINATION? Hawaii LOVE STORY: We met through mutual friends and went on multiple double dates. Our first date alone, Weston swept me off my feet flying us in a small plane around Cincinnati. We dated for 3.5 years before he asked me to marry him! CHOOSING A VENUE: We chose Buffalo Trace because it is unique to Kentucky. When we visited, we were blown away by the beauty and rich history of the distillery. IMPORTANT ELEMENTS: Cocktail hour and a distillery tour that ended with a tasting allowed us the opportunity to finish taking photos. During this time, Weston and I were also able to have a private dinner and a minute to soak in our day!
