I Tried To Plan The Perfect Wedding


What are your top five wedding priorities? Have fun, eat cake, get married. (laughs) Get married. Hey, I’m Nikki. And this is my fiance Kelsie. We’re getting married this year. And we can’t wait to make
this perfect day our own. It’s Wedding Season and this
week, I’m getting married. It’s Wedding Season and
I’m getting married. (meow) And while weddings are really fun they make you do a lot
of really crazy stuff. Ah! Uh! I’m gonna try my best to remind myself through all of this, that it’s all so that we can celebrate our
relationship together. Very emotional, because for a long time this was not a reality in my mind. And it was not a reality
in the world anywhere. And so I’m very very fortunate to not only legally marry the person that I so hopelessly love, but I get to do it in a way that celebrates who we are. With really fun friends and family in a really beautiful place. With lots of cake. It’s gonna be beautiful
and everyone’s gonna have the best time of their life. Having the same vision
is going to set the tone for the whole wedding planning process. Kelsie and I didn’t have a
traditional wedding planner because this is not something
we could fit into our budget. We went into this thing
called the White Box. Which is online virtual planning tools as well as planning
experts who can help you with every aspect of wedding planning. We went ahead and filled
out their questionnaire. We told them who we are as a couple. We sound like such a lesbian couple. Yeah. I’ll take the cat part out. What our ideal wedding looks like. – [Kelsie] Intimate
time with close friends. Also, cute dogs. My mom’s dogs will be there. And what areas we needed help with. Ways to take our current
plan to the next level. Submit. After we fill out the questionnaire, we’re gonna get a call
from one of the founders of White Box. I’m Carrie from White Box. We help you with putting
together your budget, cohesive look and making
these big decisions. Put them together in a box, and
then ship them to your door. – [Nikki] We got so many things. There’s wedding palette
colors, linen samples, invitations that you could use. – [Kelsie] They did everything from helping us build out our timeline to finding specific rental
places near our venue. And it was really, really fun. Because they sent us candy. Well? My skin is glowy, my hair is beautiful, I have lost about 10
pounds, and I have a suit that I look great in, and I’m
getting married in a week. (gentle music) Our wedding was in Washington state. Kelsie and I both grew up there. So we love the Northwest. All of our friends and
family were in the same place for the whole weekend. We decided to have a first
look which is when we see each other before the ceremony. It was one of those things
where the weather was perfect, the lighting was perfect. It was just this really
great moment where everything came together. And she looked amazing. It’s really great to start
all of the wedding festivities with just that intimate
moment with the two of us. And from that point
on, being like alright, what we do now, we do together. This is it. No turning back. The wedding itself was
in an outdoor garden. It was really beautiful ’cause
you could see the water, we were so lucky that we had good weather. My mom has a lot of dogs. Two of which were in the wedding. And they pretty much stole the show. (gentle music) Welcome to the most happy of days as we join in the celebration
of Nikki and Kelsie’s love. Kelsie and I met when we
were both pretty young. We spent a lot of the
beginning of our relationship in secret. Honestly to think about those days where we first decided to be together, to now is one of the
most astonishing things I’ve ever seen in my life. And probably will ever see in my life. Ladies, you may kiss your wife. (applause) I’ve always known that
I wanted to get married. I’ve been really lucky
to grow up with parents who have just been a
great model for marriage. That’s always been something that’s really inspiring to me. The wedding itself was
actually this really great time that Kelsie and I spent together. Through the ceremony,
through the reception, we were just holding hands,
or holding each other just the whole time. And those were often just
like really intimate and lovely times just to be together. And we made sure to schedule
that kind of time in. So it was like a little bit
of hanging out with people, and a little bit of time to ourselves. It was a perfect day. Everything came together. The place was more beautiful
than I could have imagined. We were able to enjoy the day
with our friends and family. It really felt like such a
privilege to not feel like we needed to do this in secret. Or we needed to be anything else than who we actually were. If you told me five years
ago that this is what my wedding would have looked like, I maybe wouldn’t have believed you. So this has been one big journey, and I did a lot of work
in terms of being a bride, and prepping myself for this wedding. I got Botox done. I got my eyebrows micro bladed. I got an amazing suit custom made. I worked out and dieted for 12 weeks. I tried out a bunch of
different hair and makeup looks. I think my goal early on was to be as physically healthy as I could. And it totally worked. I have never been this healthy. And I really do feel like I
was in the prime of my life on my wedding day. For the honeymoon we wen to Italy. And I ate a lot of ice cream. And I got a little bit
fat and a little bit tan. Yeah, and we’re married. We did it. (celebratory music)
