Who better to tell us all about this charming outdoor wedding than the bride herself? Take it away Emily! “Having to replan your wedding makes you appreciate having really great vendors. The original date for our wedding was April 4, 2020 (4/4/2020) and as you can imagine, everyone was watching the Covid-19 numbers very closely. On March 17th, we decided to hit pause on the wedding festivities and replan for August 8th, 2020 (8/8/2020) with hopes of “loving each other twice as much.
When you are supposed to get married four months earlier, the anticipation builds even more for the new big day. We were lucky to use almost all the same vendors as originally planned, just with a much smaller crowd. We loved this because it was much more intimate, and we got to really celebrate with everyone who attended. The day started with heavy thunderstorms, which was fun since I was incredibly set on having an outdoor ceremony. We had a beautiful baby’s breath arbor planned and nothing was going to get in the way of that. Originally we were supposed to have our ceremony at a glass chapel nearby, but with new regulations in place, this was no longer an option. This turned out to be a blessing in disguise. By the time the ceremony started, we had clear and sunny skies. The ceremony area was tucked back in a wooded area and with the baby’s breath arbor, it made the perfect backdrop for a wedding.
After saying “I Do,” we were ready to party. The reception was what my wedding dreams were made of. I wanted all white flowers with hints of blue, and that’s exactly what we got. Table settings had tall taper candles with home-made blue gauze napkins and table runners. Everything was as I envisioned. We wanted our wedding to represent us and our relationship, so this meant a lot of classic rock! Our DJ was awesome and had almost everyone on the dance floor the whole night. Our vendors were the best and made our day truly unforgettable!
