When we heard Mike and Olivia would be having their wedding in Olivia’s parents backyard, we knew that we were in for something sweet. It seemed like there was something sentimental around every corner and it was clear from the very beginning that Mike and Olivia knew how to be present for the important things in life.

Olivia would describe Mike as a  perfect gentleman throughout their relationship. It was clear that Mike has been smitten with Olivia since their first date. Their wedding day was full of kisses, love and laughter. Suzanne, of We Tie the Knots events transformed Olivia’s childhood home into a perfectly romantic setting (which was no small feat, considering Georgia had just been hit by hurricane Irma). Surrounded by their loved ones, two legged and four, Mike and Olivia stepped into the next chapter of their story and we were honored to be part of it all.
