Where do I start? Lisa and Joe contacted us a few short months before their May wedding. They had recently moved into a beautiful house and wanted to celebrate their special day with family and friends all in their newly established home. We were more than excited to help them plan their one of a kind backyard wedding. Did I mention Lisa and Joe are extremely talented, artsy people who were more than enthusiastic to use their skills to make this DIY wedding perfect.
All the centerpieces were created by Lisa with the help from her soon-to-be MIL. She found branches in the woods behind her house and created beautiful paper flowers to adorn them with. The branches were in stone filled mason jars and set in the middle of the long tables. She also added potted succulents, rocks and a paper flower runner. My favorite part had to be the place cards- they were small potted succulents with each guests name representing exactly where they would sit on the long farm style tables.
Lisa and Joe designed their own invitations and #instagram cards tying in perfectly with the color and the idea of getting married in front of their beautiful coy pond in their backyard. Yep-I told you they were talented!
As the guests sat overlooking the coy pond Lisa processed down the stone aisle accompanied by her father. It was beautiful!
Now it's time to party! The kids had their own party happening in the basement- a great idea if you're having a lots of kids. They had their own food and DJ-perfect to keep 20 kids entertained and enjoying the night!
While the kids partied, the adults ate amazing food and listened to a live band while enjoying the beautiful scenery. The groom even got in on the action-singing to his bride!
The day was perfect, the decor was stunning and Lisa and Joe said "I DO" in front of family and friends in the comfort of their new home!
