“We set up my mother-in-law’s popcorn machine and my Dad and I made bags that said ‘Thanks for popping by’ on them,” said Krystal. “Guests also had a lot of fun with the props at the photo booth backdrop I made out of tissue paper flowers.” Many of the guests were impressed by the bride’s wedding dress that her Mom made 29 years ago for her own wedding. Krystal and her Mom altered the dress by cutting off the sleeves, lowering the back into a deep V and adding crinoline underneath. One of the bride’s fondest wedding memories was walking down the aisle with her parents and seeing all the people she had known throughout her life. “I felt like I was in a dream,” Krystal quietly recalls. “It was a warm, amazing feeling.” She met her groom beneath a birch arch made by themselves and Krystal’s Dad, and walked out with her new husband through bubbles blown by the guests.

hung proudly in their home. The wedding party included the couple’s dog Harley and Andrew’s 8-month-old nephew, Sawyer. The baby was adorable in his bowtie and blue suspenders while held by his groomsman Dad. After the ceremony, a playful mood set in as guests headed for games on the lawn such as croquet, giant Tic Tac Toe and a huge Kerplunk game made by Krystal’s Dad. The groom handcrafted a popular one-hole mini putt as well. An excellent buffet dinner was accompanied by wonderful speeches that left the bride and groom happy and content. After dancing all evening to the newlywed’s playlist of their favourite music, guests grabbed sparklers and headed to the beach to send off the happy couple. “Our friends and family stood in two lines on the beach and waved the sparklers around as we ran through holding hands,” said Krystal. “It was so beautiful and such a memorable experience.”
