Backyard Wedding Inspiration!

This week I sat down with one of my brides to help her refine and identify her wedding theme, decor, and dainty little details. Hands down my favourite part of the job - aside from watching the wedding ceremony from the back row ;) 

Here are some of my favourite inspiration images I collected for her vision board!! Can you guess the theme for this September wedding? Hint it starts with R and ends with ustic. The setting is "backyard-esque", and the details are just elegant enough to remind the guests they're at a wedding, not a pig roast (although that sounds fun to us too!) The best part is that the theme, feel, and aesthetic we've created for the couple's big day is exactly what they dreamed of when booking their venue, and it's the perfect summer setting to celebrate with their friends and family!! 

Signage is always a great way to personalize your wedding! Loving this wooden easel and draped foliage. Keep it refined, and less "DIY", by hiring a professional to do the calligraphy if you're not up to the challenge.

Ceremony arbors are just the best. You can dress em up, or dress em down. You can use fabric, florals, or foliage to create a look that you love for the price that suits your budget! Always consider the back drop and view when renting your arbor.

Using props for a "grab-and-go" bar outside is a unique way to reduce labour cost on the bar (hands free bartending), and to incorporate a cool & rustic element that suits the backyard theme. Grab Dad's old wheel barrel and fill 'er up! 

Cocktail receptions can be many things...elegant, fancy, signature...and FUN!! Don't be afraid to include some activities & events during the afternoon for your guests to get involved and create memories!! Laughter is the best background music, so let's crank it up! 

To me, this is what it's all about. Gathering friends and family to feast and flourish! Love family style meals and this casual table setting. So perfect for a summer evening under the stars with your best of bests :)
