Each year, Brittany and Nathan venture into the woods to find the perfect Christmas tree. But one year was different: “Under the guise of taking our Christmas card photo, (Nathan) had rigged his iPad to a different tree and was able to capture the entire proposal in still frames,” says Brittany. When trimming the tree, Nathan cut two discs from the trunk, then burned “Mrs” on the front of one disc and “Mr” on the front of the other, and included the engagement and wedding dates on the back of the discs. The discs served as cake toppers during the ceremony and are now ornaments for the couple's tree. Wooden bowls, flower boxes and a wood cake stand carried the theme through the wedding. Personal sentiments were also woven throughout the big day, including invitations handmade by Brittany, family members participating in the ceremony through readings, and sticky note pad favors given to the guests – “We have been writing little ‘love notes’ to each other on sticky notes since before we started going out and continue to do so,” says Brittany. “My flower girl delivered one of these notes to Nathan at the end of the aisle just before I walked.” The most special moment of the day to Brittany, though, was when she exchanged vows with Nathan: “Looking into my groom’s eyes while promising to love and cherish him forever, everything else around us seemed to melt away. In that moment, it was just him and me.”
