Elegant and Dreamy Backyard Wedding

Katie and Mike were always planning to have a backyard wedding. When they booked me and shared some of the vendors they had hired, I knew their day was going to be nothing short of extraordinary. Their team of vendors helped bring this elegant and dreamy backyard wedding vision to life and wow was it one for the books!

COVID certainly added a few twists to how their final day ended up looking compared to what they originally had planned. Cutting their guest list by over 100 guests and having to have a fully seated cocktail hour were a few changes. However, they rolled with the punches and trusted their vendors to make this day the most memorable!

Once the traditional church ceremony concluded, guests made the short 5 minute drive to the reception location. Guests were immediately greeted with stunning floral and greenery installations entering cocktail hour. At this point, Katie and Mike had not seen the reception tent. Once we finished wedding party photos, they got to take a peek and their reaction speaks for itself!

The evening was filled with lots of champagne, meaningful toasts and even a surprise song by the groom’s brother!

If you are thinking of having a backyard wedding, but want something more elegant and dreamy, it is possible with the right vendor team! Or if you are planning to getting married at a venue, there is tons of inspiration to be found from this elegant and dreamy backyard wedding!

What stood out to me the most was that almost a year after our first meeting and leading up to the wedding she remembered some details that were very important to us on the big day.  We were never just numbers to her--she truly gets to know the clients she works with.  Our wedding day was amazing and she eased into our day effortlessly. Many family and friends commented how much they LOVED Lauren--from the bridal party, to our parents and guests.

"Puts you at ease."

- jessica & Derek

Lauren has a way of making you, and your wedding party feel very comfortable and making you laugh which really makes the classic "posed" pictures come to life.  It was really important to us to be present during our day and not to be concerned with the "details" and Lauren made that very easy.  She didn't force any photos and instead captured what was happening naturally.

"Perfectly Captured."

- Devin & Taylor

Lauren is absolutely the best! She made us feel so comfortable and we even had fun taking photos. Now let me just point out we are SO awkward and uncomfortable on camera and she did such an amazing job working with us to be comfortable and look good our photos look like something from a magazine we never knew we could even look good on camera and everyone who sees our photos absolutely gush over the photography and the amazing quality.

"Amazing Quality."
