Amy and Dan were married in a traditional church ceremony at Cedar Park followed by an outdoor reception at Cammidge House. “I am passionate about taking care of the environment, so I wanted our wedding to be green and low impact,” Amy said. “All of our flowers and most of our decor were foraged . . . all our table cloths and napkins were bought second hand, and then given back to the stores we bought them from.” The bride wore a lace fit ‘n’ flare wedding gown, accessorized with her grandmother’s necklace, while the groom wore a dark gray vest and pants (no jacket), accessorized with a black tie. “We wanted the wedding to capture our individual personalities,” she said. “On one side of the stage we objects and furniture that represented Dan (grandpa’s old rocking chair, guitar, film projector) and on the other side were things that represented me (watering can, painting, grandparent’s old trunk). At the end of the ceremony, our wedding party moved all the pieces to form one ‘living room’ set.” How unique is that? Guests were greeted at the reception with a welcome table that featured wild flower seed packets and jars of homemade honey. The tent was decorated with lots and lots of hearts hanging from the ceiling, table numbers with quotes and sayings, and a make-your-own drink station. The newlyweds’ best advice? “Make sure all the details for the wedding are written down so the bride and groom, wedding planner, parents, and helpers are all on the same page,” Amy said.
