Diana + Cody: Gravelly Lakeside Wedding

Filed in: Wedding

I love everything about a personal wedding. I’ve known Diana since middle school when we sat in the flute section of band together (yes. The truth comes out). So this wedding was personal to me. But a personal wedding was also extremely important to Diana and Cody. Everything about their wedding was thought through and meant something to them. The wedding took place on Diana’s family’s lake property that she spent the summers at growing up. It has been in her family for generations. Cody’s brother lovingly made the wedding cake. Diana sewed a note to the tie that Cody wore that day. When I say that everything was personal, EVERYTHING was personal. And it showed. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house as everyone took turns giving speeches and praising how genuine Cody and Diana are, and together, they are magnificent. I want to give a huge heartfelt THANK YOU for including me in your day, it was beautiful and overflowing with love.
