DID THEY DIY THEIR WEDDING?

From The Bride: Our wedding day wouldn’t have been possible without the help from all of our friends and family! From my Nana baking homemade desserts, to our Mom's prepping all the food for our cocktail hour and the village of people it took to set everything up - everything we had envisioned had come to life! 

We said our I do's under a canopy of trees, played beer pong and lawn games with our family and
friends, ate amazingly delicious burritos and tacos, visited the ice cream truck for some local ice cream cones and danced for the first time as husband and wife. It was perfect! The entire wedding was planned and coordinated by All Things Love Events.

From The Bride: 
Our first home together was nestled in this beautiful forest and we created some of our fondest memories there (like getting engaged).

When we came across our venue - The Settler's Loft. We knew it was perfect for us. – we were going to get married in the forest!

CEREMONY SET UP

From: All Things Love Events - Ceremony. Simply put, it was enchanting! A charming sign would guide guests down a path to an opening in the woods where rows of custom wood benches were set up, decorated with logs, greenery and lanterns. A super romantic aisle carefully lined with candles was awaiting the bride’s entry. (Not to worry, no forest fires were created in the making of this setup!)

This much anticipated and beautiful moment was not without many tears, as personal vows and the memory of loved ones filled the space with such support!

Bride's Favorite Moment of The Day


From The Bride: The obvious highlight of the day is getting married to your best friend…however, our ceremony felt like so much more than that! We are both typically shy people and thought our nerves would take over the experience... but when we met each other at the altar… it was like no one else was around us. It was such an incredible feeling that we will cherish forever.

BEER PONG & LAWN GAMES


Lindsay and Mitch had an array of Lawn Games at their wedding like - beer pong and giant Jenga. If you were curious about what beer pong is - it is a drinking game in which players attempt to throw or hit table tennis balls into cups of beer, and their opponents are required to drink the contents of any cup in which a ball lands.
