09.19.15 Brianna (Mathewson) & Zac Juszczak

Our relationship is anything but ordinary! After Zac relentlessly chased me for a year (with some definite flirting exchanged), we started dating. It was nothing short of a whirlwind romance and, one night, after the most beautiful dinner and evening under the stars, he got down on one knee and asked me to be his wife. Through the tears, I couldn’t get, “Yes” out fast enough!

Our wedding was much anticipated since Zac just getting back from training, started a new job, and moved across the state to a new home in the month prior. On our day, we woke bright and early, had breakfast, and parted ways. I met my girls at Sue Kolve’s, where they catered to our every need. Soon, my makeup was done, hair was up, veil was on, and we were out the door and heading to the church to get dressed.

As we got to the church, Zac and his groomsmen were arriving, so I rushed downstairs as it was important to him that the first time he saw me was walking down the aisle toward him. As I was helped into my dress, it became surreal—this was the day that I was marrying my best friend, soulmate, and the man that I truly could not imagine life without. The five minutes between me being ready and walking down the aisle to him were the longest of my life. Before we knew it, our ceremony was over and we were Mr. and Mrs.!

As we drove to our photo location on the Mississippi River, we knew it was the only alone time we would get that night. Being able to be together as husband and wife for for the first time was a moment we wanted to relish. Then, getting to the Radisson and seeing everything come together was so exiting. Our guests enjoyed the food and music as much as we did, which made us happy. From the gorgeous red heart roses that made up my bouquet, to the delicious food and three-tiered, rose-covered cake, to being married where Zac’s parents were married, and surrounded by family and friends, we couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect day.
