What was most important to you on your wedding day?

We were looking for a casual and natural environment for our wedding, so when we saw the Gardens at China Grove, we immediately knew it was perfect! We wanted the ceremony to be super special and feel like “us.” To make the ceremony reflect our personalities we did several things. First, we started it with a moment of silence. We wrote our own vows and ended the ceremony with a blessing that all guests sang together, accompanied by a very high energy band. The guests found the hand written words done by an artist on each chair before the ceremony. Everyone had a lot of fun with all we did, so mission accomplished!
