Visions of an outdoor affair

If I said I've been dreaming of my Wedding Day since I was little, that wouldn't be a lie. If I said I've been planning my wedding since I was 15, that would also not be a lie. If I said that Jay and I have been talking about our wedding for almost the same amount of time that we've been together, that, again, is not a lie.

We have discussed, at length, the vision we both have for our Wedding Day and it looks a little like this:

Fortunately, we have been able to tie in games, twinkle lights, whiskey, outdoors, beer, candlelight, and cigars to something really great! At least how we're seeing it in our heads... We share a love of yard games and craft brews, so in the end we may not be having a flip-cup tournament, but we do have ideas of a cocktail hour playing bocci or cornhole.

Jay doesn't love twinkle lights as much as I do, but he sure is good at letting me have my way ;) Our plan is to set up a tent on my Grandparent's property (they live on a lovely 16-acre farm with a pond). The cocktail hour would be held on the flagstone patio under lighted Maple trees and then transition to the tent for the reception.
