I was talking to my sister recently and she asked me if after so many years doing so many weddings if everything looks the same or if I still get to experience unique things. Immediately this wedding came to mind and after a bit of reflection I realized that what makes weddings truly unique are the special connections to family and friends that show through on a wedding day. Aly had her dad’s polka band parade her from her house to the ceremony location, with friends and neighbors all out on their porches cheering her on. They got married in an old mansion, with an intimate ceremony followed by a big outdoor reception full of dancing and good food and great times.
