We know that a lot of people don't want the stress of the stress of a big wedding, don't need household gifts, but do want their friends to celebrate and participate in this special moment in their lives. We have a perfect solution for you: have a
Invite your friends and family over for a party - house warming, birthday party, first annual BBQ, 4th of July party - just about anything you can think of that will get a lot of them in attendance. You can even make it a pot luck so you don't have to do the cooking!
My photographer and I will attend as guests, then, an hour or two into the party, I'll take the mic and talk a little about the two of you, your courtship, ect., and say "They've done a lot together over the years, but the one thing they've never done, is gotten married, and today, we're going to cross that one off their list". Then, I'll pull my robes out of a bag, put them on, and start the ceremony.
There are so many different ways to surprise your guests, I'd love to help you plan this!
