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.

A casually elegant BBQ wedding in their own backyard

Shortly before Matt and I got engaged, we bought a house with a stunning park-like backyard, complete with an arch for the ceremony. We planned the wedding in just three months. Our focus was celebrating the new family we were creating with my three sons from my first marriage. To keep it casual, we held a catered backyard barbecue on a Friday evening.

You'll be enthralled by the many motorcycles and vans, casual cowboy chic, the vintage-fab ladies arriving in a classic car, and the pops of red everywhere.
