The Offbeat Bride: Skye, Nail Technician
Her offbeat partner: Evan, Tester/Inspector
Date and location of wedding: Historic Round Barn, Biglerville, PA — June 14, 2015
Our offbeat wedding at a glance:
Evan and I are high-school sweethearts and have been happy for nine years. Our wedding was themed around the woods, with a Twin Peaks undertone. We chose all of the elements of the wedding and were able to keep it pretty classic while adding some fun elements from my favorite show.
Tell us about the ceremony:
The ceremony was held in the trees, overlooking a vineyard. My grandfather was the minister who married us, along with my younger cousin playing a violin solo as I walked down the aisle. As a symbol of unity, we released two beautiful white doves. We loved that everyone was shuttled to the ceremony site by a small bus.
Tell us about your reception:
The cocktail hour kicked off with an espresso bar serving iced and hot coffee, along with fresh-squeezed lemonade. Inside the barn, we had gourmet donuts and jazz music. We entered to “Falling” by Julee Cruise to keep with the Twin Peaks theme.
Dinner was locally sourced chicken and fries from The Chicken Truck (similar to the Meals on Wheels included in the show). The decor was black and white chevron over mint tablecloths. The centerpieces were logs with wildflower arrangements, and each seat had a wood slice charger.
What was your most important lesson learned?
I would have to say that if I had hired a wedding planner, I may have been able to enjoy the process more. There were so many details to worry about.
