my wedding

my wedding

 I am not sure how many couples I have worked with on the day of their wedding. Umm, a lot. When my best friend asked me to marry him last Christmas Eve, (EEEK) my head was racing with thoughts. It’s my turn. What will I do? Where will it take place?  I knew what I didn’t want to do, that was for sure. I didn’t want some huge thing where Walt and I felt like we were performers. I didn’t want there to be so many guests that we didn’t have a chance to enjoy our day with the people we cared about most. I didn’t want to be in some place that meant nothing to either of us and we would never visit again. There’s more but I won’t bore you with my “what-I-didn’t-want” list.

When Walt’s parents said we could have the wedding in their backyard it all started coming together. It was just the atmosphere we wanted. Simple and beautiful. Fortunately, being in this industry, I knew the perfect wedding coordinator who would bring our vision to life. Because of her, we were lined up with a list of fantastic vendors to help us create the “venue” we wanted. Melissa Wilt at Melissa Wilt Events  put me in touch with a vintage rental company and perfect lighting guy to set the mood for the day. This is pretty important when having a “backyard wedding”. She even worked with our favorite restaurant to create a catering option. I am including a list of all of the wonderful vendors we used but first… some photos.

I have to thank Trisha LaCoste, Ron Wainscott, and Linda Zills for being present as my friends (Trisha was even in the wedding) and putting together these images of the day. I am so grateful.

The day pretty much looked like this…

Well, that’s it. Our wedding day. I loved every single second. If you are considering having a backyard wedding, DO IT! It is a blank canvas ready for you to make your own and chances are, it has never been done before. Here is the list of vendors I promised you guys:

Coordination: Melissa Wilt Events

Hair: Pam/Le Parlour

Makeup: Lauren/The Powder Room

Lighting: Will/Willow Bridge 

Rentals:Hemstitch Vintage Rentals

Florals:Fairhope Wildflowers

Video:Smeraglia Productions

Catering:Cactus Flower Cafe

My awesome head piece:Letters to Jane

The band:This side of 49

Walt wore Express (sorry J Crew Fans). Don’t ask me about my dress, I purchased two others as well.

I hope I am not leaving anyone out. You all know that Trisha and Ron are part of the So Life team. Linda Zills is a dear friend and very talented photographer. Her website is not up and going just yet. Her husband Crisco is also a close friend to us and he officiated.

Even if you imagine a simple wedding, it is never very simple. For me, I just wanted an intimate day to remember. I think we accomplished that. Thanks to all who attended. We love everyone of you.

 

xoxo,

April LOYLE
