FURRY ASSIST Creighton put the engagement ring on their dog’s collar and asked Lorelei to take the dog for a walk. That’s when she noticed the ring. “It was an easy decision to marry him," Lorelei says. “He is very supportive, kind and open to new adventures." The two had met in college in Sioux Falls, South Dakota.

WEDDING VISION An elegant outdoor ceremony with a fun and simple reception. They decorated with greenery and fresh blooms. “Very beautiful and much cheaper than having lots of flowers," Lorelei says. Photography was their biggest expense, followed by catering.

HUSKER FANS Their wedding coincided with the Nebraska-Ohio State football game, so they showed the game on TV at the reception.

UNFORGETTABLE MOMENTS For Lorelei, it was when Creighton teared up as she walked down the aisle. There was a funny memory, too, when their toddler ring-bearer drop-kicked the pillow he was carrying (fortunately, not with the ring). They wrote letters to one another and read them after the reception. Creighton recalls how stunning Lorelei looked the day of the wedding. “I’m so glad to have a partner so smart, caring and beautiful."

GAME NIGHTS Board games were among their favorite presents.

TIME TO REMEMBER Throughout the wedding day, take time to soak up the special moments and everyone who is there with you, Lorelei says. They found it difficult to talk with everyone and thank them for coming before the speeches and dancing began.
