Backyard Surprise Wedding

Rian and Kaity’s wedding is a fine example of going against the grain doing things your own way.  They had their ceremony and reception at their own home, they chose not to have a bridal party and they even had a mechanical bull for entertainment!  Oh and there’s another small detail I should probably mention… They didn’t tell their guests it was a wedding!

They disguised the occasion by telling their guests it was a first birthday party for their little boy George.  Most of the guests had no idea it was a wedding until they got there.
