Love and Family From the bride.. When we found out we were pregnant, we decided to wait to get married until after our daughter was born so we could have a celebration that included our new baby. We knew we wanted a non-traditional outdoor wedding that was both relaxed and fun. I found bright retro bridesmaid dresses that inspired our colorful color palette. As a new mom, I did not have the time to plan a wedding so hiring a wedding planner was a lifesaver. Driving up to the ceremony site and seeing the beautiful altar surrounded by amazing scenery and all our friends and family made me so happy, it was a very memorable moment for me. Our ceremony was very intimate. We planted a tree with dirt our parents brought from our hometowns. We said vows to our daughter, which was very special and we included a Dr. Seuss quote that fit us to a tee. We wore Chuck Taylor shoes, something that is so ‘us’ and every time we wear them, we think about our wonderful day. For favors, we had mini picnic baskets that guests could fill with sweets from a candy bar that included a variety of sweet and salty treats from gummy bears (my favorite) to chocolate. My advice: Try to make your day special for you. On your wedding day, just go with the flow and don’t stress.

Our table decorations incorporated hen and chicks that came from my late granddad’s garden.
