The Great Chair Saga

Jason & I are planning on having a relatively short ceremony, so I’ve been debating for quite some time as to whether or not we should bother with having chairs for all 190-ish invited guests or if we could pull off a super quick ceremony with the onlookers standing around the gazebo.
