Here is last week’s weekly feature:
This week on “Weekly Feature” I wanted to showcase my Sister-in-Law’s gorgeous wedding. Lauren & Mo are a beautiful couple who wanted to have a fun backyard wedding with a pig roast. The wedding was held June 22nd, 2013 in her parents’ backyard in Downingtown, PA. The Photographer was High Image Photography and all of the pictures below are compliments of HIP, unless otherwise noted.
All of the simple details made their big day sparkle and shine. Some of my favorite details were the homemade olive oil and herb favor bottles, the mismatched China, and all of the signs around my in-laws’ property that made it special.
What I love most about this wedding, besides the gorgeous couple, is that there was no real “theme”. The whole day fell under the “Backyard BBQ Wedding” umbrella, but it was everything the couple and family loved all put together into one fabulous event. This just goes to prove that a traditional or trendy theme is not at all necessary to have a beautiful wedding.
A lot of people think “backyard” equals easy, but I think anyone involved in this wedding would tell you it was truly a labor of love and a lot of (fun) work! What made this wedding so unique and special was all of the love and little details that went into every part of this wedding. Family, friends, and neighbors all came together to make this day a success and it was spectacular.
Another huge hit at this wedding was the band. A lot of times, it is difficult to book a wedding band that will keep people on the dance floor all night long. Sometimes everything they sing sounds the same and it gets boring or sometimes their repertoire isn’t deep enough to please the crowd. Lauren and Mo hit the nail on the head when they booked The Fair Trade for their wedding. The Fair Trade is an Irish Rock Band, but don’t let the label of “Irish Rock Band” fool you. These guys played the Beatles, Mumford & Sons, Elvis, Flogging Molly, Men at Work, Rolling Stones, John Mayer, and everything in between. Once the party started, the dance floor was packed all night. In fact, the band stayed longer than expected because everyone was having so much fun. When you are looking for a great wedding band, go to several of the band’s events to get a feel for their style and variety before you book!
Thank you to Lauren and Mo for allowing me to feature their gorgeous wedding this week. If you have any questions about the vendors they used, or are interested in planning your own backyard wedding, contact us today for a complimentary consultation!
