Get ready to light up at this disco wedding with a joint bar

Due to the world being turned upside down, we had to cancel our wedding… like many brides, I had to pivot. We had recently bought our first home and spent so much time working on it, so we decided to have our wedding in our backyard.

The redwoods reminded us of our first dates, which consisted of many hikes amongst the redwoods.
