This was it. Months of planning, and the day was here. Altje and Colin are going to be husband and wife! While Altje got ready in their bedroom, Colin was just one floor below her getting dressed and preparing to see his Bride before the day slipped from their hands. Putting on his last piece of his suit, Colin took a deep breathe then stepped outside. In just a few short minutes, he’s going to see the woman who has his heart, the same woman he plans to spend the rest of his days with…
The wonderful couple celebrated their first day as husband and wife in the comfort of their backyard. The DIY country-style wedding made you felt like you were home with a 20 foot teepee, an array of garden lights, with luscious greens, grays, corals and a touch of pink. The maple sugar covered bacon took you back to grandma’s kitchen, and the large inviting fire pit allowed guest to kick back and enjoy a nice cold brew.
Colin and Altje, thank you for allowing Jorge and I to share such an intimate time in yours and your families lives. We enjoyed ourselves from the very beginning; from the engagement session to touring your home, from helping in the planning process in any way we that we can, to spending one of the most important day of your lives with you. You are the absolute best! Sending much love and appreciation.
A special thank you to all the vendors who helped make this day possible!
