Highlighting Sarah and John’s wedding for wedding Wednsday! These beautiful photos are captured by the talented Nick Mantzel of ABM Photography.
From a Polaroid guest book, to light sabers, mad libs, and to DIY decor, Sarah and John had an epic wedding for their guests to enjoy and forever remember. Sarah and John was quite the crafty couple making their own decor. They used recycled wine bottles for table numbers and flower vases. A lot of of the bottles had their favorite quotes from songs and books. Some of the quotes came from songs from the Beatles and book quotes from Dr. Seuss. The couple placed mad libs on each guest place setting. This gave the guests to share their wedding advice, but with a funny twist! Check out Sarah’s dad mad lib.
One of my favorite moments from the wedding had to be the father/daughter dance and the mother/son dance. Sarah and her father had a choreographed dance that started with a slow dance, then danced to Grease lighting, then transformed to a hip-hop dance and back to a slow dance along with the song “My Girl.” It had everyone’s jaw dropping, smiling, laughing, and a huge applause at the end with how impressed everyone was. John didn’t start his dance off with him mom. He first came out with one of his groomsmen and battled each other with light sabers. Sarah and John’s mom broke up the battle and transitioned to the mother/son dance. It was very unique, fun and different! Another cool thing they had at the wedding was a Polaroid guestbook and wedding app! Instead of a guestbook everyone wrote in, all guests took a photo of themselves and scrapped booked it with a short message. The wedding app was a wonderful way of guests being able to share their photos with everyone.
Her wedding dress had pockets!
These meerkats were handmade by Sarah’s grandmother. She was not able to come to the wedding, but made sure to send her granddaughter a very special gift. These meerkats were pictured in all of the wedding festivities.
Thank you to all the wonderful vendors who made this wedding possible!
