John and Pia are two of the most sincere and lovely people I’ve ever met. Their ceremony at Salvage One was heartfelt and unique in many ways, but I’ll point out just a few details. Pia made their programs and their rings I believe. As a pre-wedding gift she got John a small red Olympus camera (woman after my own heart) and John got Pia a swank backpack. The bridesmaids got jars of Basil (!) and the groomsmen wore pinwheels and striped socks. They planted a tree during their ceremony! But the most unique part of the evening from my perspective was a German wedding tradition in which the newly married couple cut a heart out of paper and then the groom carries the bride through! So cool.
