Edelweiss and Bill had a gorgeous outdoor wedding at sunset at Nebraska City’s Morton Mansion. I was so excited to hear about their celebration when I met with Edelweiss for the first time. She moved here from Mexico last May, met Bill, got engaged in February, and was having all of her family and dearest friends come all the way to Nebraska for their wedding. When I asked her why they chose the mansion in Nebraska City she told me that she has fallen in love with the Nebraska sunsets, and if her friends and family were going to come all the way to Nebraska from Mexico, she wanted them to be in the most beautiful place in Nebraska for sunset. I would consider it a success. Even if the Nebraska City high school football teams “jock jams” warm up music was playing across the street for the entirety of their ceremony. (I couldn’t help laughing as “so light ‘em up, up, up…light ‘em up, up, up I’M ON FIRE” played as she walked down the aisle).
Her family folded HUNDREDS of beautiful red wedding cranes; she walked down to the sweetest version of Edelweiss; they were draped in lace from her parents wedding; there was German chocolate cake from Gerda’s German Bakery in Omaha to celebrate her dad being German; BEAUTIFUL flowers from Blooms and Bouquets…all of it was simply gorgeous, romantic, and incredibly personal.
Edelweiss and Bill, congratulations!
