Mel + Michael threw a great big wedding party that was all about their friends and family. Their program guide was entitled “YOU YES YOU” and listed every person at their wedding with a personal and very funny little description of each. They made little red and white “yes” buttons for guests to wear as a show of support. They hunted estate sales and ebay for decor, and enlisted friends to help gather, design & create. To top it off, they invited all 175 guests to join them in the recessional walk through the ranch while their siblings sang and played accordion & violin.
