If you are dreaming of a bright, relaxed summer wedding, this colorful handmade wedding from Nakalan McKay is the perfect inspiration for you! It is set at the beautiful Roloff Farms (fans of TLC’s Little People Big World will recognize the place and this wedding that was featured on an episode last fall). Beyond the amazing details, I seriously don’t think I’ve seen a more joyful bride! The happiness emanating from this couple is just contagious!
We wanted the ceremony to be more than just RJ and I saying “I do”. We wanted to take advantage of that 15-20 min and have our college pastor, Scott, share the love story of Jesus. We wanted the ceremony to touch the hearts of people that maybe had never heard how much Jesus truly loves us and yearns for our hearts. To have all our immediate family surround and place hands on us while Scott prayed over our marriage was one of the most emotional and touching parts of the day.
I wanted the day to be smooth-sailing, relaxing, and enjoyable for EVERYONE present. I wanted our guests to kick off their shoes, dance, and laugh. I didn’t want there to be any stress (but obviously I had a slightly unrealistic expectations).
Definitely do not sweat the small stuff leading up to the big day!! I found out stressing over such little things like where everyone will sit and who RSVP’d doesn’t matter in the end. The least amount of stress you put on yourself the more enjoyable of a day you’ll have. Also, KEEP IT SIMPLE, STUPID. (the KISS rule I learned in anatomy & physiology should apply to your wedding!) I know every girl dreams of this big extravagant wonderful expensive wedding that people will talk about for years but honestly, those unlikely expectations just ruin the whole day. Having a simple, laid-back, inexpensive back yard pot luck style wedding is a dream wedding for guests. If I could do it over again I definitely would choose plan B. Not disregarding my own amazing wedding, but it would have saved me some acne.
