Texas Backyard Wedding by Stella Alesi Photography
August 18, 2010

This wedding sent to us by Stella and Leon of Stella Alesi Photography is so sweet, so very sweet. It is a backyard charmer straight out of Austin, Texas and this adorable couple just might be the coolest cats ever featured on SMP. We are seriously crushing on their perfect vintage style and the handmade affair that they created with the help of talented friends and family. Plus, Vivienne Westwood shoes happen to be an amazing combo with a flirty vintage frock so how could we not love every inch of this wedding. See all the fab details that made this day perfect in the gallery.

From Stella Alesi:

So I didn't know if I should name this submission Amenity and Adam's backyard wedding, or Amenity and Adam's hip East Side wedding, or just one of the sweetest weddings I have ever photographed. To say it was DYI wouldn't cover all the facts as well. It was more of a "Do it Community" event. Family and friends helped out in all sorts of ways from making the invitations and the beautiful candies, to setting up the tables and creating the sign in book that Miles, their son, decorated.

Bicycles were a big part of the day. Many guests arrived on them as well as the ring bearer and officiant. The wedding party, adorned in friend made hats, walked across the street from the neighbors yard ringing bells announcing the arrival of the bride and her father. The ceremony took place on the front porch of their newly, groom painted, pink bungalow style house. Dogs roamed freely, a DJ set up in the backyard, and their oh so hip and artsy friends, dressed in their east austin summer finest, danced and ate cupcakes, (again made by a friend).
