"I cannot live without this one here."
Hillary and Tom are spunky, thoughtful, and truly top-notch people who are well respected and loved by all who meet them. When they are together, they enjoy spending their time doing crossfit, dancing, laughing, and singing. Their wedding day was filled with so many beautiful and personal touches that revealed their personalities; like showcasing the groom's love of the Seattle Seahawks with SeaHawk knee-socks worn by the bride along with Toms booties. The banquet tables at their reception were decorated with antlers and family heirloom silver teapots. The bride and groom also happen to share a birthday so they decided to plan their wedding for the day before their shared birthday. How fun it will be to celebrate their wedding anniversary and birthdays all in one weekend for years to come!
Personally, we were especially touched by the kind things that the best man had to say about the groom. It does say a lot about a person's character when men who served alongside him in the military almost a decade ago all make sure to re-unite with him to celebrate this joyous occasion in life. Hillary and Tom, we hope you have many, many more occasions to celebrate in the years to come.
For now, here's a sneak peek of what you can expect in their full film: [vimeo]https://vimeo.com/125571714[/vimeo]

Hillary told us that she and Tom love to dance. In honor of that, they had special drink-savers made for their guests that could be placed over the top of a drink while they were dancing, ensuring that the staff would not clear their drink away while the guest was kicking it up on the dance floor. Hillary and Tom sipped their drinks from specially monogramed silver tankards that added to the aesthetic of their big day.
Hillary shared the proposal story with us: "He asked me at one of my favorite places: Brownland Farms in Tennessee. At a horse show, he got down on one knee shaking. I don't even remember what he said, I just said yes!" When we asked Hillary what she was most looking forward to about her wedding, she said spending the rest of her life with her best friend…and cake! Their wedding cakes were set side by side at the reception entrance. The bride’s cake was a geometric, asymmetrical masterpiece with flowers cascading down the tiers and topped with the couple’s monogram. The groom’s cake was set with the Seattle Seahawk’s logo and surrounded by individual treats with the number 12 on each one.
Congrats to Hillary & Tom--we can't wait to share your full film with you!
