Our Ceremony Tea House


So in my parent's backyard (where we are getting married) there was once a pool. This pool got kind of sad from years of no one swimming in it after my sister and I left for college. It was finally put out of it's misery several years ago. Since then, my mother has had a dream of having a Japanese tea house and garden down there. After much coaxing she finally convinced my father to build her one. When we first got engaged I knew right away that I wanted to have the ceremony in the, then, non-existent tea house. My father is a perfectionist and every little board had to fit just right. I have been trying to think of back up plans just in case the house wasn't finished in time but I received an email the other day that gave me hope! The house is almost complete and it's more amazing than I imagined it. I knew my dad was a handy guy but this is just outstanding! And that fire pit in front? Oh yeah, we will be s'moring it up in that after the party!
