- Wedding: April 2013
About two months before our wedding we found out that my DH’s church wouldn’t marry us because we lived together before marriage. We were crushed. With the clock ticking we decided to hold our ceremony on the same grounds that our reception would be held at. Our reception site is a beautiful old hotel on a lake. I would have LOVED to hold our wedding on the lakeshore but April in Iowa isn’t very warm. The coordinators said we could always have the wedding in their conference center. I was a little taken back when I saw it because it was nothing special but we really had to no other options. After a little snooping on the internet I found the most beautiful ceremony design!
And here is how we pulled it off!
The centerpieces were used at our reception site as well. The hydrangea and rose petals down the aisle are also in the swag connecting the lighted towers. During the ceremony we had all but the lights up front dimmed. It was gorgeous! We get our professional pictures back this weekend so I’ll post more if anybody is interested! These pictures were just taken from the rental company that set everything up so they’re not the greatest quality.
