What was your favourite part of our backyard wedding?
The best part of our small backyard wedding was the community. In the end we decided we wanted to have a party with our closest friends and family. So many of our guests had a hand in getting the wedding set up and we could not be more grateful to them. Our “rehearsal dinner” was really a potluck BBQ and work party, our brother performed the ceremony and the bride’s hair was done by her very talented 12-year-old cousin. All of our flowers came from family gardens. Everyone was so supportive, and it seems that having that involvement and connection to the wedding really brought everybody together. This togetherness emphasized those feelings of love and happiness associated with the wedding and it created this amazing spirit throughout the day.
Tips for future couples:
If you can, keep it simple, on the day of the wedding you’ll be grateful for it. Create the wedding you want and don’t do something just because you feel obligated to do so. It’s really easy to get caught up in all of the details and there are more “options” out there than ever before. Remember, the most important thing is the love between you and your spouse and your guests are there to celebrate you. Most people just want to laugh, dance, eat and maybe have a few drinks.
Our favourite vendors:
