A lot of people would say that a second marriage shouldn’t be a big deal. Most skip the elaborate affair. Bill & Michelle happen to be soulmates and their elopement style affair had all the right feels!
Deep in the woods of Harriman State Park, Bill & Michelle swapped vows in front of 50 close friends & family. They chose to celebrate their love with music, readings, and lots of laughter! The heat may have been slightly oppressive, but everyone kept on smiling and showed sincere happiness for this sweet couple. Together with their kids, Bill & Michelle enjoyed a personal ceremony followed by lakeside portraits.
Their reception was held at the pavilion nearby and neighbors came out to party! The pavilion had all the makings of a DIY project done right! Tasteful fairy lights twinkled, mason jars glowed softly, and the food and drinks poured freely that evening!
