Bride and groom’s names:
Drew and Nina Grimm
How did you meet your husband?
We actually met on the dating app, Tinder, 4 years ago. Dating apps DO work, haha!
Tell us the story of how he popped the question:
Drew proposed on November 2nd, 2018. He led me to believe that his family wanted me to be in their Christmas card. So I left work a few hours early to go take pictures with his family, but little did I know his family wasn’t even there. We were both searching for them when out of the blue he starts saying all these sweet things to me (while I was wondering “What the heck are you doing? We need to find your family!”). I literally didn’t know what was going on until he got down on one knee and then I immediately started shaking and sobbing. He got me good!
What was your wedding date and why did you choose it?
May 5, 2019. We knew we wanted a shorter engagement and sometime in the spring. My love for Mexican food is strong so when we saw the date was available for The Barn at Tatum Acres, we jumped on it! Who wouldn’t want a Cinco de Mayo wedding?
Nina & Drew’s Classic White Barn Wedding
What was your overall vision for your wedding?
We both love the outdoors (especially the mountains) so we knew we wanted that to be the setting. I knew I wanted a lot of white and greenery which is exactly what I got! Very simple.
What do you feel was the most special component of your wedding?
Oh gosh I loved every bit of it! Other than the gorgeous view, I would say the most special component was Drew’s dad, Tim, was the officiant. He did such a great job and it meant a lot to both of us that he agreed to marry us.
Did you have a wedding theme or color pallet, and if so how or why did you choose it?
There wasn’t a particular theme other than I wanted a lot of greenery and simple elements. We chose different tones and shades of blush pink and navy as our color pallet. We chose those colors mainly because we thought they were the best complementary colors for a May wedding. I honestly prefer more fall colors but I loved how everything ended up.
How important are the typical wedding traditions?
Did you plan on doing something outside of the norm to make your wedding more of your own?As far as traditions, we really didn’t do many of them. We didn’t have a lighting of a candle or anything like that during the ceremony.. no bouquet or garter toss (because let’s admit it… those are kind of the worst, ha).
Why did you choose your wedding venue?
The view, the view, the view! It was everything I imagined! The Barn is beautiful.. just everything really! It had it all!
Is there anything else you would like to share?
Working with Debbie was fantastic. She made everything so simple and also super easy to work with! She gave me a lot of wedding vendor referrals that I ended up going with which made planning a breeze!
