LOOKING BACK takeaways from the big day

1 Being a restaurant owner, Sara loves entertaining and she and Austin really wanted their wedding in their home, but it wasn't large enough. Instead, they rented a green house and their dear friend (and local florist/plant shop owner) made if feel like home.

2 Just as the bride sources food from local farms, the florist sourced local flowers for the bouquet.

3 Sara's favorite moment was walking down the aisle to Bob Marley's "Is This Love" and sharing in that moment with her parents.

4 Being Jewish and marrying a Christian, the bride incorporated a "ketubah" (a Jewish marriage contract) into her ceremony. It was embraced by both sides of the family and signed by a close family friend.

5 "Austin called the band and I grabbed all the bourbon from my restaurant and set up a bourbon tasting bar with eighteen different 'hard to get your hands on' bottles of bourbon."

6 They, along with their niece and nephew, dived head first into the cake, showcasing their comical side. Two local food trucks provided the food, from kimchi fried rice to smoked brisket and there was an ice cream bar with over thirty-five different toppings.

7 In everything the couple decided to do for the wedding day, it wasn't just about the bride and groom, but it was about the community itself and bringing people together.
