We are thrilled to be sharing today’s wedding!! Sarah was one of Aileen’s bridesmaids so this wedding is extra special to us!  Nathan and Sarah decided to plan a surprise elopement with just their immediate family on Sarah’s grandmother’s property.  She quickly put together tons of simple and beautiful DIY details to add some special thrill to their special day! Park Road Photography was behind the lens to capture it all.

Here is what Sarah said about her wedding: “I was really really close to my grandma, she lived right down the street growing up and I always dreamed of getting married in her backyard. Since she died in May of this year, it was really hard for me to imagine her not being there on our special day. We knew we couldn’t fit 200 people at her house, so we decided to have a small (immediate family) only ceremony on the property that she loved so much, where my dad grew up. It was a perfect way to honor her memory and include her in our wedding.”
