Have you ever thought about getting Captain Jack Sparrow to officiate your wedding? Or how about getting a food truck for your reception instead of a regular buffet set up? Well, Missy & Brian sure did! And it really made for a very interesting wedding to feature on this last day of August. And that’s not all, they even had fire dancing throughout their reception. They definitely planned to let their guests have a really fun & unique experience on this rare & once in a lifetime milestone of their lives.
Brian and I met through his friend and best man Neil. Brian and Neil used to work together and when Neil moved back to Crane Lake Brian came to visit and that is how we met.
When you imagined your wedding as a child or young adult what did you want, go with that 🙂
We both have a shared love of fine foods and travel 🙂
I wanted to keep it simple and rustic to go with a farm/lake wedding. I love drinking out of mason jars so I used them for my decor.
My love for coral 🙂
It will all come together and hire a planner just to do the set up and take down! It makes your day so much less stressful:)

What were some challenges you faced planning your wedding & what would you have done differently to avoid them?
Challenges; I would have to say myself. I am a procrastinator and indecisive so it really made for an interesting planning experience. I would avoid caring what other people want.
Our budget was 10,000 and we spent about 15,000.
Ceremony highlight would be my two dogs as ring bearers and my JP was a genuine pirate. Reception would have to be the food truck 🙂
Venue, we had it all on my parents acreage.
We leave for Maui in 8 sleeps! 🙂
Yes, Crane Lake Shinanigians.
Moving into our new home next week and starting our lives together.
275 were invited 175 were supposed to be coming and 200 showed up 🙂
Yes, but having saved costs other places we didn’t have to narrow it down tooo much.
It was a one of a kind wedding 🙂 Filled with pirates and fire dancing 🙂
