Adina and Mark worked on their ceremony site for six months before their June 2013 nuptials. With a lot of help, the couple tore out old trees and weeds, moving earth to make a special place outdoors. They then planted grass seed and watched a garden grow for their very own special wedding spot. The best part of it all was the rain that fell only on the day of the ceremony. Despite all the thunder and lightening, everyone had a great time and enjoyed a wedding they will never forget.
