Mary and John’s Wedding was part DIY and all LUV
Mary’s parents house would be the setting in this great adventure, and while transforming a house into a venue is no easy job, it turned out perfectly!
With the boys in one part of the house and Mary in the other, we took this opportunity to capture all beauty of the house-turned-DIY-venue! Make sure to find the photos of the Maine Coon cats (Archie and Wiggins)! They’re huge and have turned Mary into a self-described “Crazy cat lady”.
WHEN WE ASKED MARY TO RECALL THE BEGINNING OF THEIR LOVE STORY, THIS IS WHAT SHE HAD TO SAY:
“When we met, I scared him because I was way overly enthusiastic “Hey John!” As he was listening to music.”
Then it was out to the front yard for the ceremony. The area they chose was a plot of land surrounded by wonderful wildflowers.
When we asked how the proposal went down, here is what Mary had to say:
“We were biking, I was pissed because he said he had a flat tire but it was so obviously not flat, and he got down on a knee, sobbing and said “so you want to do this thing, love, or what?”
After the cocktail hour, it was time to cut a rug!
What was their favorite part of their wedding day you ask?
“Favorite part? Duh! Saying I do! Knowing we had everything before us”
I also want to make sure to give love to others that contributed to this wonderful wedding adventure :
