  • How did you choose your venues?

    My mother and I come to Comfort often to get away and enjoy the scenery, people, and wine. My mom ran in to Phil when he was building the camp a few years ago. We came a couple times after it was built and fell in love with the camp and it’s owners.

    Flowers were boho-chic made by Brandi Hines. They had garden roses, thistles and greenery.

  • What was one of your favorite moments from your wedding day?

    The reveal and taking photos in the creek in our wedding outfits!
  • Did any of your other vendors go above and beyond for you?

    All of them. The Camp owners (Phil and Lisa) were amazingly generous. Brandi by far exceeded any expectation I could have- she designed and created a fairy tale wedding that we all got to see come to life. Whim- wonderful set-up of the tent and all the décor, etc! Great guys! True Flavors- really took care of the bride and groom and made sure we were eating while also catering to the entire wedding. Everyone only had wonderful things to say about the service from Hector and his crew at True Flavors. Cake was from Cakes and More and was AMAZING.
  • Do you have any tips to share with other couples?

    Don’t try to plan too much- and remember to live IN THE MOMENT, take deep breaths and just be along for the ride. If it’s feasible, get a good wedding planner– they are life savors.
