Real Couples // Llamas and Piñatas in the Woods: Amy + Adam

Amy and Adam had one of the most fun wedding days I've ever been a part of! They held their ceremony and reception in a Redwood tree grove in Redwood Regional Park. They incorporated wooden ducks into their ceremony decor as a nod to their Korean heritage, but opted for vintage wooden duck decoys instead of the traditional version to match Adam's love for antiques. From the food and cake to the decorations and favors, their friends and family were essential to making their day go off without a hitch. Ukulenny provided music for the ceremony and entertainment during the reception. He even went table to table during lunch taking requests and encouraging guests to sing along! 

There were other activities intended for guests to have fun and interact with each other, including making s'mores by the campfire and hitting the piñata. But probably the most memorable surprise would be the llamas, which were a surprise even to the bride! Right as Amy and Adam were feeding each other a bite of cake, up walk a couple llamas, and Amy turns around and starts cracking up as Adam walks toward them. Adam had mentioned the llamas in passing a few days before but Amy didn't take it seriously, so she was almost as surprised as their guests and just as eager to pet them and take a few pictures.
