Cassandra ‘Cassie’ Helland and Quinn Johnson

February 18, 2017

On their wedding day, Cassie and Quinn surrounded themselves with only their closest family and friends. To remember those loved ones who had passed, the couple displayed a special memory table of their photographs. To make their ceremony even more personal, Cassie and Quinn exchanged handwritten vows and included a plant ceremony. “We poured dirt into the planter of a peace lily, which is now thriving in our home,” says Cassie, “And, just like our marriage, its strength is routinely tested by our 6-month-old baby girl and 2-month-old Great Dane,” she adds. With help from Quinn, Cassie was able to create the DIY wedding of her dreams. “Putting together a DIY wedding was a lot of work, and it would not have been possible without Quinn,” she says. “I had a dream of this beautiful winter wedding and I was able to gather all the materials and decorations, but Quinn was the one that executed everything the day of the wedding.”
