Jaclyn and Gunther shared vows and became one on July 2, 2017 in a quaint little farm house in Alpine, Arizona. A smoky and dramatic fog surrounded the dear couple’s beautiful Northern Arizona wedding venue. A forest fire had spread through the mountains of Alpine earlier that week, and the wind changed directions, sending the smoke to their little venue. But it truly added to the rustic, organic feel of their intimate day. The entire wedding was ‘do it yourself’ (DIY) by the bride and family, with an intricate array of personal touches which made the evening unique and beautiful in an early 1900’s fashion.
The ceremony was filled with a small array of devoted guests. Age-old tree stumps daintily lined the ceremony aisle and paved the way for the wedding party and guests. Jaclyn wore a vintage lace short-sleeved wedding gown that looked glamorous yet timeless. A palate of pastel pink, blue and purple bridesmaid’s dresses looked whimsy and shown delicately against the rustic forest farm backdrop. And finally, a homemade stick arbor set the tone with a corner of exquisite floral. And under it, the couple committed to each other forever.
The reception took place in a quaint little white barn with a garage door which was left open for the remainder of the night. Sweet little vintage details were at nearly every turn. Ornate silverware and homemade pies placed on tree stump trays lined with pearls looked glamorous and earthy. It was an intimate night, with a couple who was dearly in love. As said by a close friend of the duo,”Spontaneity, curiosity, and a sense of adventure have never been in short supply with these two. The rest, as they say, is history.”
