Amber and Tom’s detailed filled DIY backyard wedding was just the best!! I like both of them so much that frankly, they could have gotten married at an Elk’s Lodge and I would have had a blast. BUT, they got married at their new home which is on a beautiful lake, and the perfect setting for a backyard wedding. It was a spectacular autumn day, and even a touch warm. Amber and Tom really thought about all of the details for the whole day, from the beautiful ceremony benches and handmade signs & altar, to the mason jar candles and constellation table assignments. Tom wins best wedding day gift of all time by commissioning a painting of “American Gothic” featuring the two of them and their Great Dane, Jocar, who also played a starring role throughout the celebration. Amber might win my best dressed for the season award with her off the rack 2 piece stunner! And her fall bouquet with feathers was just fantastic. Oh, and there was a surprise flyover by a plane with a banner saying “Congratulations Amber + Tom”….!!! Then it was on with the evening where the band played great classic rock tunes and everyone danced the night away, taking breaks to gaze at the stars. Such a fantastic wedding!
