Kevin decided one day that he was gonna look up every woman he had ever had a crush on to see if he could round up a wife he could be happy n content with for the rest of his long years, and the first on his list was MaryJane. I guess it was love at second First sight because after their first date he threw out the list then and there….This hat wearing wedding entailed all the eclectic aspects of this dynamic couple, from a dream catcher wedding altar to cowboy boots, turn of the century cowgirl top hat to favorite herbal plant table settings, a “Watering Hole” for mixed drinks and a Dia De Los Muertos themed wedding pie.
It began with deep calming, spiritually expansive music welcoming the wedding party down the aisle, setting the tone of this multi-faceted affair mixed with indigenous ceremony (sage smudge), jewish tradition (handmade blanket covering), and pagan ritual (hand-fasting). The ladies adorned in soft creamy pink dresses of varied vintage fashion and decorative sideways 30’s and other era hats with hairpins. The men decked like an old western, groom in a cowboy hat and sheriff pin and matching ring bearers. Flower girls in denim vests, cowboy boots and fluffy tulle ballerina tutus. What did they NOT think of at this wedding? Even the bridal house kept the rustic era and vibe. There was not a moment where earthy vintage western was not taking us to a different time and place. And THEN it was time for the Groom to walk down the aisle. The beautiful heart expanding music came to silence punctuating moment of deep attention to the beginning of a new and special life about to unravel. When SUDDENLY, the beats came on, and Kevin was strutting down the aisle to the funky tune of Maa-ry Ja-ANE….and the new groove was SET! Oh, so THAT’s what this couple is about! This wedding was full of creative outbursts in every aspect, and the night lasted til sunrise with an evening fire and a DJ that had everyone singing throwbacks on the dancefloor. A dance performance by the dynamic couple, sparklers, and more DJ’s that just wouldn’t quit. This was a boot stompin throwdown I tell ya! What a glory that I got to partake in this adventure! Thanks MaryJane and Kevin!
