He shared a few details about the wedding:
Taylor & Dominique’s wedding was all about DIY- Lots! Taylor & Dominique collected all the plates from garage sales and the swap meet.
They collected the bull dog, bar man, gum ball machine that sat on the bar.
Each guest had a mason jar with chalk board painted on it for them to write their name on.
In the champagne glasses we put colored rock candy at the bottom so when the champagne hit it would turn different colors.
Taylor hung all the lights, bird cages with lights and old window frames that he put their engagement pictures in and spray painted black.
They made a great mixed CD.
They also had matches as favors.
Dominique walked down the aisle to a Ava Maria, recorded by her late grandfather.
The linens were also made by the Mother of the groom.
Lace covered the picnic tables.
They had a large popcorn maker with many toppings.
Bleachers were put up for guests to sit at during the ceremony.
Karaoke was part of the entertainment.
All guests could camp over.
