Tracy, Social Worker & Daniel, Teacher
One sentence sum-up of the wedding vibe: Colorful, playful, and relaxed ceremony followed by a slammin’ backyard party with all of our favorite people.

Other Cool Stuff We Should Know About
Tracy got pretty into the spirit of DIY and ended up drawing/lettering all the chalkboards herself and building that streamer curtain, which was seven feet tall and ten feet long out of PVC and sheets of crepe paper. Daniel’s mom and aunt baked over seven hundred cookies for the cookie table, which is a tradition in his family. We both felt so loved and supported and, to be honest, a little surprised by the outpouring of help from friends and family. After the reception the bridal party ended up at a local bar for karaoke where the owner presented us with a huge bottle of champagne and a card signed by all the regulars which basically just made both of our hearts explode (this is also where our best man and one of the bridesmaid’s learned that “Fast Car” is actually a very sad song).
Favorite thing about the wedding
The cupcakes. We knew we hit it out of the park when people were saying goodbye to us and they couldn’t hug us because they were trying to carry several cupcakes home! The karaoke after party at a dive bar after the reception takes a close second!
