How You Met: Kellan and I (Flannery) were high school sweethearts! We went to school together starting in sixth grade, but we really became friends when we had almost all of our classes together our sophomore year at Spain Park. We started dating when we were 16 and have been a couple ever since!

Favorite Moment:  I especially loved walking down the beautiful staircase at Clubhouse on Highland to Kellan during our ceremony. I was facing everyone and it was so nice to see not only Kellan, but our families and closest friends who were there to celebrate with us. We chose not to do a first look, which made the moment even more special to us. Kellan and I always love sharing a nice dinner together, so sitting down for an incredible meal and just talking and laughing with our friends and family was the perfect kind of reception for us. Between courses, my brother-in-law emceed a mini version of The Newlywed Game, which got us all laughing! Instead of having a wedding cake, we ate mini desserts while we danced and mingled after dinner. The mini caramel ice cream cones were our favorite!

Favorite Wedding Details: We used vintage postage for our wedding invitations, and my favorite was a raccoon stamp that even matched the personalized artwork that my friend Elizabeth made for our save-the-dates. For my something old and blue I wore a ring from my great-great-grandmother that both my mom and my sister also wore at their weddings. It was so special to feel connected to my family through such a sweet detail. Another special detail was that my dad and I danced at the reception to the song “Blue Suede Shoes,” which is the song that my dad always sang when he danced around with me before he tucked me into bed. It made for such a fun and special moment with him.
