While Zoe Smith and Robert Brink’s wedding was far from an elaborate affair, the sweetness of this surprise wedding and the unusual nature of anyone springing their wedding as a surprise on their family and friends, made it one of our favorites of the year! We’ve never had a surprise wedding before but found it to be quite enchanting. The friends and family squealed with delight when Zoe’s brother, who also performed the ceremony, announced to their guests that they were there for more than a simple engagement party! Zoe and her wedding party secretly got ready upstairs as quickly as they could after slipping away sneakily!
Once they were ready and just after the surprise announcement of the pending ceremony, Zoe and her small group slipped into the room to meetRobert in front of our fabulous Spanish Cedar Double Doorway. The ceremony was short and sweet and the guests were totally delighted! They had actually pulled it off; they couldn’t believe it. Their guests were still in shock as the new couple was announced.
We think a toast is in order! Thanks Zoe and Robert for ending our year here at Historic Firehouse on such a sweet note. We’ll be sure to suggest surprise weddings now as an option for couples looking for something small, intimate and different!
