Ashley and Mi's amazing Catskills wedding was a handcrafted labor of love among their friends and community. Together they made hand-stamped welcome bags and poetry journals, Ashley's handmade earrings, paper cranes and ribbons hung from trees, collected bottles as centerpieces, and a group reading during the ceremony.

Family and friends wrote blessings and well wishes on ribbons and tied them together for a handfasting during the ceremony, where the pair also shared their first dance (an idea we LOVE).

After the ceremony, it was dinner and a sparkler parade led by fiddle players to a contra band and square dance caller. We can only imagine the fun after that. Let's see it all…
