A tea party wedding with dinosaurs, DIY, & a gorgeous gown handmade by the bride

We knew we wanted things to be really classy and elegant, but we had a small budget. Since we couldn’t afford a lot of flowers, we bought a ton of Christmas lights on sale the year before and just went nuts with white twinkle lights and it worked out beautifully. Chris loves dinosaurs, so I snuck them in everywhere without telling him: large ones held our table numbers and small ones were just hidden in strange places, all painted gold. The biggest highlight is that I made my own gown!

This stunning tiny forest wedding takes backyard weddings up a level (with the cutest kitty!)

This tiny backyard wedding in East Sooke, BC was a labor of love planned in a short period of time. Lauren and Cohen love ink, cats, plants, and great vegan food, so their wedding reflected them perfectly. Don't miss the epic forest-filled backyard (who has a backyard like this?!), seriously gorgeous vegan food spread, reception space filled with lush textures, and the real star of this show, their cat Yoshi.

A tropical California backyard wedding with palms & fire dancing

It may be Winter around here, but it's summer in our hearts with this wedding dazzling us. Tatiana and Chase's California backyard wedding was a mix of Hawaiian style, tons of performances (because both of them know so many talented people!), fire dancing, tropical flower crowns, gold shimmery dresses, palm fronds, and so much gorgeousness.

Let's see how this tropical paradise wedding played out…

A backyard garden party wedding with yard games & cocktail recipe cards

When we started planning our wedding, we quickly discarded a lot of traditional elements. What we did want in a wedding was an opportunity to celebrate with our loved ones, to gather around a table and enjoy a meal together, to welcome our people into our home, and celebrate as a group. So we focused on the most important stuff to accommodate our vision: a small event in our backyard, a menu and cocktails that reflected our tastes, handmade décor, yard games, and a non-religious ceremony officiated by a dear friend.

Our hearts warmed upon seeing this homegrown backyard woodland wedding

We wanted a forest-themed wedding because of our shared love of nature and the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains in which we live. We also wanted to focus on our friends, family, and community. We sought out vendors we knew, the caterer used produce from the farm where Adrienne volunteers. The favors (goat's milk soap) and the flowers both came from vendors at our farmer's market.
