There are few things I love more than an intimate and stylish backyard wedding! There is something so intimate in saying “I Do” in a place that has meant something to you for years that just gets me excited. Growing up, Kate always told her aunt and uncle she was getting married in their backyard under the huge, beautiful tree. Fast forward 20 years and Kate’s dream had not changed! Kate and Ryan came to us looking to have a laid back, personal, and beautiful ceremony and reception at her Aunt Cindy and Uncle Ronnie’s home in the backyard under that big, beautiful tree!
Kate and Ryan lived in Colorado, so a lot of planning was made long distance. We quickly started assembling a team that could make their dream a reality! Planning from a distance always has its own unique set of challenges. Scheduling meetings around holiday plans and family visits can get complicated, but we were happy to accommodate. Kate and Ryan made planning from a distance a breeze!
It was very important to the couple that the day be enjoyed by all their family and friends. They wanted it to stay on track while making their guests feel at home and everything to move easily and organically. We started the ceremony off by offering champagne to guests as they arrived which led guests to mingle and feel comfortable and relaxed. It was the perfect touch to set the mood for the rest of the evening! Kate and Ryan wrote their own vows and declared their love for each other. It was perfection! They spent the rest of the evening eating, dancing, and having fun!
We were so happy to hear many of their guests call this the best wedding they have ever attended!
