If you know me at all, you can probably guess that backyard weddings are my favorite kind of wedding! I love everything about them - DIY wedding details, homecooked food (in this case BBQ!!!) and nobody kicks you out at the end of the night so you can party the day away! Done right, backyard weddings can be a perfect alternative wedding option that doesn’t break the bank.
A couple of things I always recommend to clients who are considering a backyard wedding - make sure you have a plan in place to deal with parking constraints and the ever important bathroom situation, and if you are having alcohol at your party consider hiring a licensed and insured bartending service to protect yourself and your guests.
Now, on to the pictures! Julie and Erik held their wedding ceremony at the local town park, which just so happens to be across the street from their beautiful home. After the ceremony, everyone headed over to their backyard for BBQ, yard games and live music. Doesn’t get much better than that!
