This backyard wedding was made with so much love by the couple’s family. The birch arch was made by the bride’s father for their beach ceremony across the street from their home. Their tented reception was decorated by the bride’s sister and offered yard games like giant-sized jenga. We’re loving the fun and relaxed vibe of this wedding!

From their Photographer: Prepare to feast your eyes on this incredibly delicious wedding!! Joe and Christina are quite the stunning pair and everything about their wedding complimented their every move. This amazing wedding took place at the beach across the street from Christina’s parents house with a custom white birch arbor lovingly made by the brides father, Gary. Their reception was held in the back yard, which was fantastically decorated by Christina’s sister, Michelle. Michelle thought of everything. She has such a creative mind and you could see the love and adoration she has for her sister and new brother-in-law in each and every piece she designed and displayed. The yard was decked out with yard games, particularly a life sized Jenga game, which was masterfully played by the wedding party. Scroll down to see all the fun. Everything was put together wonderfully by friends and family, making this day a huge success.
This rustic apple orchard wedding, handmade with the help of the bride’s mother, is filled with so much prettiness! We’re loving the colors, the romantic photos, and the antique carousel!

From their Photographer: Taylor & Paul met and were married within less than a year’s time. Their wedding was a beautifully DIY-ed, rustic but elegant tribute to not only their love, but to the love that surrounded them through their families and friends. The bride’s mother was a catalyst in the planning and decor – all handmade and executed with grace and style. The country setting of an apple orchard (complete with an antique carousel!) made for the perfect backdrop for this couple to say “I do.”
Summer may be over but that doesn’t mean we have to stop swooning over beach weddings. This destination wedding, set in Sayulita, Mexico, is filled with colorful details, romantic views, and the dreamiest wedding gown.

Eeeep! As I type this a wave of panic is washing over me. How did we get to the one month mark? Where has the time gone? And what have I been doing? I’ve been feeling super busy with work, and trying to enjoy the summer, and all the other weddings and events we have, but I also feel like I haven’t been doing anything wedding related. Kate asked me a few weeks ago if I had a check list and I said yes. And she said, “You’re lying, aren’t you?” And I said yes. Haha I feel like I don’t even have time to make a check list!
We finally got our invites out a few weeks ago. People kept offering to help stuff envelopes and I thought, “How hard could that be?” But man was it time consuming! We’ve almost received all of our RSVPs, and it definitely starts feeling real once we realize people are actually coming to this thing. We also just picked up our marriage license yesterday and, again, this is getting pretty real! The clerk asked if we were coming back to get married there and I was so tempted to say yes! There have been so many stressful moments the past few months where I just wanted to throw my hands up and say, “Meet me at the courthouse.” After some deep breathing exercises I think we’re back on track and all good again. I feel like we have a million loose ends to tie up for this final month but I really don’t know where to start tackling them. We have friends and family coming into town two weeks before the wedding so that’s my deadline of finishing everything. That’s really just two weeks away so wish me luck! I sure am gonna need it!
