One sentence sum up of the wedding vibe: Lots of tears and lots of laughter surrounded the celebration with our chosen and given families… along with plenty of soft rock, 1950s tunes, and jazz jams!

Other cool stuff we should know about: Our awesome friend Scout officiated and our best friends serenaded us at dinner by ukelele to Rainbow Connection! Our cat Greenlee wasn’t able to attend because his tux was at the cleaners, but Alexis created a Greenlee logo that we included on our stationary and favors to make sure he wasn’t excluded from the big day!
Favorite thing about the wedding: We were thrilled to have a drama-free weekend, full of joy and love from our amazing family and friends! The amount of fun we had can’t be captured in words, and we’re still reeling with love and happiness from the whole weekend!
