I don’t often find myself at a loss for words (some would say I talk too much), but when I do, it’s because of an epic wedding like this one. A wedding that is so incredibly beautiful, the English language doesn’t offer up enough adjectives to describe it. Because this glamorous backyard affair? This gem of a day? It’s breathtaking… and filled to the brim with sooo much pretty, it’s almost hard to believe it’s real. (Almost.) See every last awe-inspiring moment captured by Jessica Lorren right here.

From Jessica Lorren… Marcia & Gary’s backyard wedding took place on the property they purchased together and will be renovating to become a home for their new family. This particular piece of land holds a good deal of history which they made sure to incorporate into the decor of their day. My favorite part was how the couple’s family was so involved in each element of the day, making it truly a family affair.

It’s a joy that really can’t be described in words, so lucky for me her newest gem will do all of the talking for me. An intimate seaside affair with the prettiest of blooms from Brandy’s Flowers & Candies and one darling DIY detail after another, it was a day that was flawlessly executed by the gorgeous bride, her dapper groom and an entire host of friends and family.

From the Bride… Our wedding planning was focused around our guests’ experience for the whole weekend (only ONE guest did not travel from out-of-state or overseas for the wedding). We narrowed in with a few simple goals for our details/vendors/decor: a) complement and don’t compete with our beautiful surroundings, b) create a truly welcoming vibe for our intimate group (“homey elegance” without ostentation), c) trust the professionals we hired to do their thing, and d) only take on projects that will be truly successful and have impact (and don’t stress if things are left out!). Our most important elements of the day were location, photography, food and music.
