Erin got MARRIED!!!!

On February 20th, I became ERIN JOHNSON! Woo hoo! Landon and I after a long and wonderful engagement we got married at the Cathedral Basilica and then had our dream reception at Casa Monica Hotel in the Casa Monica Ballroom. We had so much fun and are ready to do it all over again! :) The night before we had a phenomenal, intimate rehearsal dinner at Collage Restaurant (where we got engaged!) followed by meeting friends and family at JP Henley's for cocktails after dinner! Then, the day after the reception (Saturday) we hosted a "BBQ and Brews After the I Do's" at our local favorite, Hurricane Patty's. Then off on the honeymoon, we spent a wonderful week relaxing and having fun in Riviera Maya, Mexico! AMAZING!

Thank you to the fabulous vendors that helped make our wedding so much fun!
