Real Wedding Wednesday: Jennifer & Michael

By Suzi Battaile

Beneath the 110 year old fig tree in their family’s backyard is where Jennifer & Michael chose to have their ceremony because it holds a special place in their hearts and provided a beautiful backdrop. They incorporated their love of travel with the use of world maps, the places they’ve traveled together for table names and old suitcases for cards.  They had to create a seating chart with the help of their wedding party the night before the wedding using a world map after the one they ordered never arrived. The chart turned out even better than planned and they had a great time together creating it.
