When COVID disrupted Ellie and Karson's plans for a large wedding with lots of friends and family last June, they decided to go ahead with a intimate ceremony at the family ranch instead. The South Dakota summer day was filled with rolling thunderstorms, but cleared up just in time for a beautiful outdoor ceremony with the Black Hills as a backdrop for the happy couple.
I have often wondered what I would have done this past summer if I had planned a large wedding(or any wedding) but was unable to go forward with my carefully thought out and anticipated plans like so many brides across the country and world. This is exactly what I would have done. I would have wanted a small, intimate ceremony with close family and held off for a larger celebration when things calmed down. Although this is not what Ellie and Karson envisioned for their big day (or really any bride for this year) at the end of the day you are married to your best friend and that is what matters.
They had some lovely details to celebrate the day and a wonderful, intimate ceremony that they will always remember. I admire them both for being willing to be flexible with their plans and keep their focus on what's truly important.
Theses Toffee Roses created a unique and sophisticated color pallet.
Congratulations to both of you and I am already looking forward your floral designs for the larger celebration that you are planning for this summer.
