It was a case of right place, right time for Joanne Thies and Jim O’Donnell. After crossing paths for years, the pair finally met at a 30th birthday party. Learning early on in the wedding planning process “aiming for perfection is a trap,” the pair eschewed several traditions and opted for their own customs – from walking down the aisle together to wearing elements they already owned. Their vision of an outdoor wedding amongst the trees was fulfilled in their rustic venue imbued with creative DIY touches, seamlessly blending the duo’s personalities.
