I was honored to be included in Evelyn and John’s backyard shindig at the end of May. They have been together for 15 years, and engaged for 8, so this spring they wanted to make it official. Along with a small group of their family and friends, and some Chinese takeout in the yard, they did just that.
This was a true DIY affair. Evelyn thrifted all of the table decor and decorations, and set up that morning with her family. No small feat, even when you’re trying to keep a celebration casual. And in true Chinese takeout fashion, they invited their guests to crack open a fortune cookie to end the meal.
