Aspen & Manny  |  June 7, 2014

From the bride: Our wedding was very elegant and upbeat with a light pink, silver, and white color palette. Manny and I created and designed everything ourselves.

Our Yorkie was the ring bearer with a tuxedo, which was adorable. My cousin married us and we signed our marriage certificate as part of our ceremony, which I think is a great idea so you do it all together.

My favorite part and the highlight of our wedding was a baby deer that showed up to enjoy the day with all of our guests! I lost my dad in December 2013 unexpectedly, which of course was so heartbreaking that he physically couldn’t be at the wedding. I was talking with our family and the deer walked up to me. When I looked at the deer he had the bluest eyes, which reminded me of my father. I knelt down and stuck my hand out to the deer. I had my dog Alvin in my hand and the deer just stared at both of us wagging his tail. I have never seen a deer be so docile and loving.

Throughout the night the deer mingled with everyone and almost every guest got to pet the deer. A couple days after the wedding I found out that the deer was not a pet of Fox Fire Farms, in fact no one had seen the deer until our wedding day and it hadn’t left since.  A Wedding Celebration at Fox Fire Farms

My Advice: You have to do it all together. It will mean so much more in the end! I would definitely recommend a band and DJ at wedding. Gives the reception great flavor!
