At-home wedding: Not a piece of cake, but worth it

Rebecca Day, founder of The Crazy Daysies, tied the knot in a ceremony in Jacksonville, Florida on November 10, 2018. It’s impossible to ignore her husband Joshua’s last name, Knight. How entertaining is it that we have a couple named Knight and Day? We had her wedding here at home with a little more than 50 very close friends and family members.

Catching up with the Crazy Daysies

 The Crazy Daysies are in perpetual motion these days, and it’s hard sometimes even for me to keep up. They peppered me with questions when they were young. Now it’s me bugging them about venues, gig times, and paperwork. Summer will be busy, and I’ve already advised them to stock up on bug repellant for outdoor gigs in the South.
