It was a beautiful, sunny day for Peggy and Nik's wedding which was great for the couple because they were going to do something incredibly unique. Having always enjoyed nature, during their ceremony, they planted a tree, easily working in their passion for the outdoors into one of the most important days of their lives.
Joy, happiness, and love were in the air as the couple exchanged vows that they had written for one another before planting the tree that they had picked out. After the ceremony, it was time for photos on the grounds before going inside the on-site cottage for the reception.
The Mills location offered many different and beautiful backdrops to get photos of the newlyweds and their bridal party, all whom reflected the air of spring in the outfits that they wore. The bridesmaids dressed in spring green colors, and carried bouquets of white and dark purple flowers while the men wore boutonnieres on their suit lapels and eggplant purple ties or vests to complete the look.
After getting many great photos of Peggy and Nik and their wedding party, it was time to go inside to the reception where friends and family were waiting to greet the newlyweds with well wishes and smiling faces. The desserts at the reception were piled high, all waiting until Peggy and Nik cut their cake before cannoli and tarts were indulged in, followed by dancing.
It was an honor to be a part of Peggy and Nik's wedding in nature. Congratulations!
