Grab a plate of BBQ and check out this music festival backwoods wedding with a "tent city"

We used our love of music festivals as inspiration for our music festival backwoods wedding. We had food stalls instead of traditional catering, a couple of local bands, lots of tents, and an overall casual feel to the whole day. We hung hundreds of feet of string lights and accented the space with hand-painted signs and quirky little details like gnomes and mini VW buses. Guests were encouraged to camp out so there was a little tent city on the property.

Rachel and Ali are both Political Science professors at Princeton University. Their stunning DIY wedding was held at their home with lush foliage, pops of red, and a killer vintage floral gown from a flea market in New York City. They took some photos at Princeton and danced all night under a tent with rain all day. Just wait until you see this dress…


A New York farm-to-table wedding at the couple's own farm
