There is something so intimate and personal about a backyard wedding, Jackie and Casey's day was just that. Each element of the day was well thought out and planned. From the homemade bar, dance floor, chandeliers and beautiful doors that were crafted to accent the rustic feel of the day so well. When you throw so much love and creativity into making your day perfect, you know the marriage is off to a beautiful start.
Jackie looked naturally beautiful in her lacey, bead encrusted Maggie Soretto gown and minimal make-up, with curled hair cascading down her back accented with baby's breath. She held a bouquet of mauve and white roses clustered together with calla lilies and baby's breath. Her radiance shone as those beautiful rustic doors were opened to reveal Casey's bride on the arm of her father before she walked down the aisle on this gorgeous sunny June day. Tears filled his eyes as he first caught sight of her. Heartfelt vows were exchanged in front of family and friends amidst the clucking of the family chickens. The ceremony was performed by Casey's childhood pastor who in turn had officiated each of his brother's weddings keeping the day personal in every way.
Close friends and family filled the bridal party. Casual attire for the guys was a welcome relief in the heat of the day, accented with suspenders and complimented with the girls in mauve chiffon dresses. The couples' one-year old daughter was the cutest flower girl in her white dress, among other junior bridesmaids also wearing white.
The love was felt throughout the room as guests crowded to watch the newlyweds dance their first dance to Chris Stapleton's Tennessee Whiskey, singing every word to each other. Toasts were given by their best friends, who acted as their best man and maid of honor. These best friends also had a 'treat' in store, as the bride and groom did not smooch cake into each other's faces, but in surprise into their friends' faces instead! One day, their daughter Arya with grow up and dance with her father on her wedding day, but on this day she also captured the spotlight as she danced with her Daddy. The evening reception was enjoyed by all, as they left their wishes on quilt squares and fireworks filled the sky in celebration as twilight rested on the day.
Such a beautiful day. Congratulations to you both!
