I utterly adore backyard weddings. A quaint outdoor ceremony overlooking the Goulais River, family recipes, handpicked wildflower bouquets, a handmade wedding dress and decor… makes this intimate wedding all the more special. It will only take one sneak peek at these images provided by Tammy Fiegehen Photojourney to know that a backyard wedding will touch your heart more than you imagined!
Comments from the Photographer:
I had the utmost pleasure of working with this lovely couple, Whitney and Justin. Friends and family helped to make their day extra special by setting up, cleaning up and bartending. Handpicked wildflowers were made into the bridal party’s bouquets. Whitney wore a dress hand made and custom designed by her mom. She also wore a beautiful lace garter, hand sewn by her sister. The gorgeous bridesmaids were in HENKAA tie dresses and colorful, funky shoes. The groomsmen wore Le Chateau for their vests and hip shirts. They also wore Converse kicks and jeans to tie in their fun look.
The couple’s “first look” photos were taken at a close neighbor’s farm before the wedding. Surrounded by close friends and family, the quaint outdoor evening wedding was held on their picturesque property in Bellevue Valley, overlooking the Goulais River. As the couple was saying their vows, an unforgettable sunset came to life. Our local talent, The Wild Turkeys, got the shindig started with their upbeat and charismatic energy. They were the ‘frosting on the cake’ when it came to topping off this charming rustic wedding. Cake? Did someone say cake? As a surprise for her new husband, Whitney asked Jeannette’s Custom Cakes to make a custom cake that looked like Justin’s beloved vintage 1971 Dodge Dart car. The night rolled on with music, partying and delicious food. Candles, lanterns and a big bon fire lit up the night.
