FROM LYNNSEY: Mike pro­posed on a trip

to Ice­land. We had been camp­ing around the coun­try for 10 days when Mike fi­nally popped the ques­tion in front of Gull­foss Wa­ter­fall, out­side of Reyk­javik. We didn’t have a spe­cific pal­ette for the wed­ding. We kept things fresh and eclec­tic by in­cor­po­rat­ing sub­tle un­der­tones of white and blue, with pops of or­angey-pink. The flow­ers were done by one of our clos­est friends, Vicki Sur­plice, and that made them ex­tra spe­cial. We didn’t want any­thing to look overly co­or­di­nated, and she did a great job cap­tur­ing the un­scripted look we were aim­ing for. We were re­ally set on

keep­ing our day super per­sonal. With an un­con­ven­tional wed­ding venue and the de­ci­sion to not hire a wed­ding plan­ner, we were some­what ner­vous about how ev­ery­thing would turn out. But af­ter ar­riv­ing at the re­cep­tion and see­ing how great ev­ery­thing looked and how much fun every­one was hav­ing, we were re­ally pleased with how harmonious ev­ery­thing ended up be­ing. We chose “Lucky Man” by

Court­ney John for the first dance. With the wed­ding tak­ing place dur­ing the balmy days of late sum­mer in a semi-open vin­tage garage that serves street food, we wanted some­thing fun and ca­sual that cap­tured the sum­mer vibe, and that song fit the bill.
