Keri and Tony had a big September 2020 wedding planned, but chose to have a small wedding in June due to COVID-19.
With their big wedding postponed to 2021, the couple hadn’t planned on having a small wedding this year until they received the news that Keri’s mom’s health was rapidly declining due to brain cancer.
Wanting to be sure to include the mother of the bride on their special day, the couple decided to wed on a sunny Saturday in the backyard of Keri’s brother and sister-in-law in Danville, California surrounded by just immediate family.
The event planners had a mere eight weeks to get this special day planned for the couple and their combined four daughters from previous marriages.
Although the planning went smoothly and their wedding day was a beautiful celebration, the bride’s mother’s health rapidly declined. She was unable to attend the wedding and passed the next day.
Despite the changes, the bride and groom had a beautiful celebration.
Rich neutral colors provided the perfect backdrop for the stunning sunflowers.
The flowers were included in the centerpieces, the decor, as well as in a beautiful circular arch that the new husband and wife exchanged vows in front of.
Burlap and other rustic, wood elements helped make a gorgeous backyard celebration.
