If you’re looking for inspiration for a detailed, but not-too-fussy backyard wedding, you’re in luck! Ellen and Bill were married in July and put together oodles of wonderful ideas for their unique celebration. To start, their popsickle-shaped wedding programs doubled as fans for that sticky July day. Refreshing, right?
Their tent was outfitted with hand-stitched, yellow cotton flags and table runners and the tables were adorned with bunches of wild flowers. As a snack before serving a BBQ dinner of ribs, brisket and cornbread, Ellen and Bill offered their guests old-fashioned popping corn in paper bags.
The activities were plentiful with throwback games including bocce, a bean bag toss, and croquet, and a custom built photo station that offered mustache props, cowboy hats and the like. Rather than a layered cake, they opted for the more simple whoopee pie. The bride wore a casual, white cotton, summer dress with a pair of fabulous colorful heels.
Inspired? I certainly was.
Thank you, Ellen and Bill, for being so creative and fun. It was a pleasure snapping your wedding photographs.
