This affair captured by Jen Lauren Grant could very well be my wedding soul mate. It’s a bountiful mix of bright flowers by Honey and Poppies, fun yet undeniably chic design by In the Now Weddings and Events and one rockin pair of heels. For me, all that equalled head over slippers at first glance. Also included in this Love-fest? A freaking fabulous Photo Tent. A Photo Tent! I don’t think it gets much better than that. See it all right here!
From Jen of Jen Lauren Grant… Brooke and Tom got married in the backyard at Brooke’s mom and step-dad’s house. Her step dad built a bridge over their swimming pool, and that’s where they exchanged vows. He also built a small wooden dance floor and carved their names into it. The decorations were simple and comfortable and mostly consisted of gorgeous flower arrangements by Honey & Poppies. The huge hanging vines of flowers decorating the bridge were my favorite. The wedding was coordinated by Sharon at In The Now weddings and I think she really succeeded in taking “the backyard wedding” to a whole other level. I loved that the escort cards were drinking glasses with everyone’s name and table number printed on them. Brooke’s colors were blue and orange, and the little orange pieces on top of the blue glasses really made them pop! I think it’s a great idea to be able to keep track of your drink at any event, big or small. I also loved that the photo booth was a big tent and they had it set up so people could take photos with an iPhone and automatically print them. The house and yard were completely renovated for the wedding. So long as you’re spending money on a venue, why not make it an investment also? Every last inch of the house was gorgeous, and In the Now and Honey and Poppies did such a fantastic job that to simply call it a “backyard wedding” doesn’t begin to do it justice.
