The best wedding days are the ones where little things go wrong, but no one notices because 1) everyone works together to solve problems, and 2) everyone is so happy for the couple that they don’t care to notice. Michele + Aaron’s wedding was one of those days. We had not 1 but 2 bridesmaid dresses break (thank goodness for safety pins!) and no one remembered Michele’s veil before she went down the aisle. But you know what? None of that mattered. Because at the end of the day, they were married And apparently, it was #AboutTimeSchoolman. LOL — love that hashtag.
Michele + Aaron have two beautiful children who were involved in every part of their day. We made sure to take some family photos, and it was adorable with their son walked up to the altar during the ceremony and then shushed the crowd. :) Both kids snuck in during the first dances too!
I was especially excited leading up to their wedding too because it was in a new-to-me venue, the Barn at Woodworth, near Onarga. It was a super cool barn with a loft, and a separate house for the wedding party to relax and get ready in. It is always nice to have everything in one location too as it makes the timeline go smoothly, and it gives me a chance to get reception details before the reception.
I am so happy for you, Michele + Aaron. I hope you’re enjoying your honeymoon!!
