FROM NICOLE: Our wedding had an elegant garden theme. Maybe it’s my British and Dutch heritage, or the fact that my mum was a florist for many years, but I’ve always had an affinity for flowers. It felt fitting to be married in a garden. The flowers in my bouquet were absolutely stunning. But it was the small picture of my Oma and Opa on their wedding day that made it one of my favourite details. They have both passed on, but I wanted to find a way to have them with me during the wedding. Landon and I wrote our own vows. We requested a microphone for the ceremony, but it wasn’t available when we got there. I was worried our guests wouldn’t be able to hear us, but it was so quiet and peaceful in the garden that everyone was able to hear and it made our vows that much more intimate. We had a family friend perform “Say You Won’t Let Go” by James Arthur for our first dance. We wanted meaningful lyrics that we could relate to. Our friend’s performance on the acoustic guitar was so special and his talent blew everyone away. It’s definitely a moment we will cherish forever.
A LITTLE IT SOMETHING FELT FITTING TO HERE BE MARRIED ABOUT THE IN A WEDDING GARDEN.
