Emily and John opted to use the opportunity while their house was being built to have a surprise wedding. This is actually SO them! Her ring even sported a little version of their house vs. a diamond. I have come to know Emily through a past bride of mine and I am lucky to consider her now a dear friend of mine. They told all their friends and family that they were having a "housewarming" party, however, during a champagne toast at her grandparents property, they made the official, "Surprise, you are at our wedding!" announcement. They all then made their way via trolley to their property to celebrate first, then get married. Their property was decorated with windows, haystacks, a vintage bathtub as a beer garden, a handmade old fashioned soda bar and all came complete with blueprint announcements in a mailbox next to the welcome mat. Perfection!
