Gretchen lost her mother to cancer 2010, but knew she wanted to incorporate her presence into the wedding day. Before she passed away, her mom fixed up a vintage Avion trailer. The couple brought it down from northern Wisconsin and made it a station for guests to enjoy during the cocktail hour.
The bride says her favorite part of the day was “Right before I walked down the aisle, I was standing next to my dad and looked out at my husband, our loving friends and family. The beautiful sun beat down on our backyard and I smiled at how the day was everything I’d ever imagined…I know that my mom’s energy was shining down on us in her absence.”
