Sweet, sweet, sweet is the theme of this backyard wedding. It’s paired down to the beautiful basics. A Bride and Groom, a simple celebration surrounded by loved ones and a good helping of pie. And by pie, we’re talking a whole pie bar. Genius! Jordan Brittley captured the day, every last ribbon filled moment of it, and you can see even more right here in the full gallery.
From the Bride… I really wanted an outdoor wedding with a beautiful landscape to enjoy. Our venue was on family land and I just loved overlooking the double ponds. During our reception we didn’t want to do a dinner so we decided on a pie bar. All of the pies were created by my sweet aunts. This was a very delicious way to get my family involved in our special day.
I wanted the bouquets to be simple and elegant so I chose white hydrangea blooms and coral colored ger-minis (which are miniature gerber daisies). I walked out of the house and Adam was waiting for me under the trees overlooking the beautiful double ponds. He looked so handsome in his tux. I sneaked up behind him and covered his eyes. When he turned around the smile that spread across his face can only be described as breathtaking. The intimacy of a smaller wedding allowed us to enjoy our special day with each of our guests. Family is very important to the both of us and we really wanted each of my nieces and nephews to share a part of our day. The small gathering allowed the children to run and play and enjoy the time with each other.
The whole day was perfect. We had a scare with the weather the whole week before our wedding. The weather turned out to be perfect with a blue sky and 80 degrees. We had to rush to get decorations put up that morning but with the help of family and friends every thing came together beautifully.
I loved the first dance with my husband and the father/daughter dance. The dances gave us time away from the busyness of the day to just spend a few minutes whispering and giggling together. The father/daughter dance was very emotional but it allowed me to be daddy’s little girl for a little while longer.
