A Shwitastic Party !

Hi Everyone!

I’m finally back with part two of our wedding adventure in Banner Elk, NC at the Cornerstone Cabins.

First, we’ve said it before, but we’re saying it again! HUGE thank you to my mom and sister who were the creative geniuses behind this. Shane and I said we wanted an ‘outdoor, cookout, tailgate-feel party with BBQ’ and they more than delivered.

We would also like to say thank you again to my Dad, Shane’s parents, and the rest of the family who helped execute the vision! We know there was a lot of coordination to make this happen, and we can’t thank you enough for it!

Instead of a lot of chit-chat, I’m going to let the photos do the talking.

Our Surprise Ceremony!

Yep, you read correctly! We know we were a little untraditional, having the wedding just the two of us in Croatia. While Croatia was absolutley perfect, we decided that it would also be a fun idea to share this with the friends and family who traveled to celebrate with us.

We made the announcement about the ceremony, Shane and I ran inside to change & our guests were entertained with bubbly!

The ceremony was written and officiated by my one and only sister! Sis couldn’t have written a more perfect ceremony. It was a fantasitc balance of thoughtful and funny… particularly when she had me quoting Taylor Swift to Shane as part of my vows.

All in all, we could not have asked for anything better! We went back to Holland looking for excuses to have ‘A Shwitastic Party 2.0’.

Thanks to everyone who celebrated with us in person, and in spirit! We love you all!

Tot ziens,

The Shwits

p.s.- we’re still waiting on the professional pictures from Croatia. Once we have them then we will share! πŸ™‚ ❀
