For months my brother had been planning a surprise party for his wife Carrie. He rented a beautiful barn in Johnston, IA, invited over 100 people, recruited friends to cater, decorate, run sound, and booked two amazing musicians, Kelley McCrae & Andy Zipf. It was an incredible night. And the one of the best parts was that Carrie had no idea. She was completely surprised! They arrived at the barn at 6pm to a hundred of their closest friends, and one of the most beautiful and creative decorating jobs I have ever seen. They walked down "the aisle" to the front of the barn and participated in a vow renewal ceremony. Lots of tears were shed (not by me because I'm not much of a crier. ok well, maybe I cried a little) and many heart felt words were shared. They lit a unity candle (again) and were pronounced husband and bride (again). It was so fun to witness and I am so thankful we were able to be apart of it.
