This cool and very romantic wedding was a garden party with comfort food with flowers. The wedding was organized by the couple themselves. Having a mega spreadsheet to keep track of tasks to be completed, budget, vendor contact, guest list, and gift list really helped them stay organized and on time. They had a standing meeting every Thursday to work on wedding stuff: making decisions, requesting quotes, etc.
Bride’s makeup was generously gifted by her talented little cousin. Photography was gifted by the bride’s father, flowers by the bride’s mother and stepfather, rehearsal dinner by the groom’s parents, and post-wedding brunch by the groom’s aunt. The couple also saved a bunch on invitations and signage for the wedding. Those were designed by the bride and printed at a shop just down the street. The food for the wedding was cool – restriction-friendly. We were able to offer vegetarian, gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free options.
All the little details and inside jokes that made the wedding really feel like the couple: The Where to Eat Pizza book the officiant held during the ceremony which later became the guest book, the black and white cookies, the tree watering part of the ceremony. All the friends and family love to hit the dance floor, and DJ Nixx kept the dance party flowing the whole time. There were dance battles, classic wedding line dancing, and soul train lines to get everyone moving.
