We Can’t Believe The Groom Planned This Entire Wedding Himself
While some grooms think they only have one job – to show up on time – others tend to surprise us. John is definitely one of the latter. With the help of his vendor team, this ambitious groom fashioned the entire affair by himself. The man of the hour surprised his bride with the final design that very day, revealing a garden-inspired space to Kelly Jo right before they walked down the aisle.
From a custom ceremony cross and ceilings dripping with greenery to a carefully curated wedding dinner menu and intimate reception space, John brought Kelly Jo’s vision to life without her lifting a finger. Sounds like a keeper!

A Custom Creation Draped in Silk
John created a custom cross with Amada Jewel Floral + Design as the centerpiece for their ceremony. Draped in silk, the wooden design was donated to their church as a gift after the wedding.
Light, metal lanterns surrounded by fresh greens and wooden pews brought a soft, alfresco border to the main event.
