At some point during this reception I stood back and sighed a big sigh of contentedness. I love this sort of wedding- it was a backyard party but done with such style and elegance that it felt both homey and extravagant. The bride and groom were phenomenal at making everyone feel at ease, and there was such love and joy all around. Thanks to the absolutely amazing work of florist The Little Branch and coordinator Courtney Tibbets (We LOVE working with After the Engagement!), the details were some of the best I’ve seen. The rest of the team was fabulous too, and we came away with some for-real friendships with talented videography duo Side-By-Side and were moved by the personal and beautiful words of the officiant, Ceremonies by Bethel. To top off all the awesomeness, at the end of the night, a from-your-childhood ice cream truck showed up and transformed even the manliest of men into kids with giant ice cream sandwiches. Loved, loved this wedding.
