From the moment I watched Father of the Bride (best movie ever!), my love affair with classic backyard weddings began. There is something so cozy and beautiful about a homegrown affair and Jacqueline and James threw one for the books. With the help of Slainte Event Planning & Design and Christina Zen Studio, they turned a family home into the prettiest, most elegant venue. Also, mini bottles of champagne served with straws are pure genius. See even more in the vault.
