The Ridge at Verterra Wedding | Josie + Garett


“I remember waking up like it was Christmas morning. I felt excited and anxious to get the day started. I immediately looked out of the window to look at the weather. I had been looking at the weather on the Farmer’s Almanac since January. The sun was shining beautifully. It was perfect and I knew the day was going to be even more perfect. Everyone told me to frequently take a step back and just take in the moments to enjoy the day. I remember the ride with my bridesmaids up to The Ridge at Verterra to get ready for the day. I had never been so thankful that I could spend the day with best friends to celebrate my big day. It was going to be the best day EVER. I felt so much love.”

Josie + Garett’s wedding day was nothing short of perfect. The location. The weather. The couple. The company. Everything had led to this, and it was undoubtedly something VERY special.

“The first time seeing my bride will always stay with me. She walked towards me between rows of grape vines. I had a feeling I was supposed to wait until she got closer to see her for the first time, but I couldn’t help but sneak an early peak. She was the most beautiful woman that I had ever seen.”

“Walking down the aisle with and seeing Garett, my husband, was the one best moments of the day. I saw our future together flash before my eyes. I felt so much love and happiness. I remember being so anxious prior to seeing Garett because i knew the attention was going to be on me while walking down the aisle. I’m not one for attention, but once I saw him all of the my nerves went away. I couldn’t stop smiling.”

Josie + Garett, I could go on and on about you two. Your love is something beautiful and rare, and I am so thankful to have been a part of your wedding. Congratulations!
