Our Romantic Fall Backyard Wedding

I can’t believe that we got married two years ago today and that somehow I never shared a full recap until now! After eleven years of writing a blog and creating content online I’ve intentionally chosen to be very private with my personal life (even though from the outside looking in it may not appear that way), so I think I just wasn’t quite ready to share this incredible day for our family just yet. Backing things up a bit – we were married at home and celebrated with a beautiful fall backyard wedding. It was basically the most magical day ever.

We’re Getting Married! All About Our Plans + What I’ve Been Buying

Way back at the beginning of the year when I announced that we’re getting married, we had these grand plans for a backyard wedding and a cool brunch reception. Fast forward seven months or so and all of our plans have changed approximately twelve or thirteen times. Now we’re just a little over a week out from making it official over here (!!!) and I wanted to pause and fill you in our plans, how they’ve changed and share with you some of the things I’ve been buying to bring my vision to life on this whole shindig. Some elements haven’t changed at all! We’re still getting married in our backyard, the original color palette has stayed the same, etc. Beyond that we’ve shaken things up quite a bit. In fact, we’re not even having a traditional reception! There are no table numbers, no seating arrangements, no carved beef. We still aren’t really having an official wedding party, we never had bachelorette or bachelor parties and we opted for a casual backyard dinner party with some of our closest friends in lieu of any kind of shower. I am pretty sure we’re going to have one of the coolest weddings ever though, even if I do say so myself. Read on for the details!

Brittany + Matt: A Backyard Fall Wedding

There’s just something so pretty about Brittany and Matt’s lovely fall wedding, which was held in her grandparents’ backyard. I’m loving that that they served up deep dish pizza (Matt’s favorite) and sent guests home with homemade honey as favors. A make-your-own soda station and a pleasantly unexpected fall color palette of gray, peach and …
