As the build up became too much, an uncontrollable spray flew out from all sides around their thumbs. Laughter and smiles was all that could be seen through the droplets of liquid flying in the air. But the crazy funnel of liquid flying through the air wasn’t what caused all the smiles on everyone’s faces. It was the pure love and excitement that Evan and Michelle had as they laughed with each other.
This is what Evan and Michelle have to say about COVID trying to stop their wedding from happening.
If you can’t tell, those are Coronas that they are spraying all around. To them? Their love can never be canceled. And they made sure to show that by still having their wedding on their original date. Yes it may not have been with all the family and friends they had hoped, but it was with the people they loved most. The ones that have truly been there through it all. Who have watched them grow together in their friendship. Relationship. Engagement.
And now marriage.
They truly embraced this crazy time. Instead of just having their bridal party drive in for a small wedding and then head home. They created a full weekend filled with fun and celebration. The bridal party was invited to come and stay at the cabin they were going to get married at to have a big celebration . Oh…. and it just so happened to be July 4th! So Friday night was a mixed bachelor/ bachelorette party, and Saturday was wedding and Independence day celebration. They truly made the best of this weekend and creating unforgettable memories together.
And we still get to do it all again next year!
Michelle and Evan, you are an absolute dream! Between Michelle’s love of wedding details and all the photos, and Evan’s incredible skills to build almost every wood piece at the ceremony. But seriously, he made the arbor, small table, anniversary box, ring box, and wooden lanterns that lined the aisles. Quite the handy man! This day was an absolute blast with you and your wedding party. Constant laughs, smiles, and so much celebrating.
And this was only part one!
I can’t wait to do it all again next year with an even bigger party and celebration. You two are so down to earth and I just love watching you take everything in. You deserve all the love and support you have around you. I know they will help you every step of the way, and have given you such a great example to follow as you start this journey together. Until next year, enjoy these highlights of your wedding day part one! And let the planning for part 2 beginning. (Who knows, my husband may just have to come to lend more shoes and sunglasses as needed next time, haha).
XOXO ~ Heather Marie
