There’s something about this small town romance that melts our hearts. Lizzi and Cortez quickly fell for each other in high school, and when Cortez popped the question eight years later, the two began planning a celebration true to their roots in Manhattan, KS. Full of dancing, loved ones and an incredible dessert bar (which happened to be Lizzi’s favorite detail), their wedding was easygoing and true to their love story.
