Sophisticated Backyard Wedding: Brianna + Josh

“I love you not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you.” -Elizabeth Barrett Browning

When it comes to weddings, there’s something incredibly magical about transforming a simple backyard into a dreamy wonderland. Brianna and Josh came to us with a vision and a blank canvas, and in the end their wedding day turned out to be nothing short of a fairytale. The ambiance exuded a romantic garden feel with elegant touches – their special day was a true testament to love and creativity, thanks to all the amazing vendors that participated (see bottom).

The Enchanting Color Palette

Brianna and Josh’s wedding colors set the tone for a truly memorable day. White, sage, sandstone and army green came together in perfect harmony to create a fresh and sophisticated atmosphere. These colors are not only timeless but also incredibly versatile, allowing for a range of d├ęcor and styling possibilities. The soft, muted shades of green and sage brought a touch of nature into their wedding, while white provided a classic, elegant backdrop for the day’s festivities.

The Romantic Garden Vibes

Brianna and Josh’s vision for their wedding was clear from the start: a romantic & sophisticated, classy garden vibe. The backyard was transformed into a botanical paradise, complete with lush greenery, simple floral arrangements, and twinkling lights. The white compote, used as centerpieces for the tables, added a touch of elegance to the garden setting. The black and white tiled dance floor brought it a touch of modern & classy.

Guests were enchanted by the dreamy atmosphere created by the string lights that hung overhead, casting a warm and inviting glow. As the evening progressed, the lights became even more magical, making the night feel truly enchanting. The combination of the colors and thoughtfully curated decor + vendors allowed for a seamless blend that made the night memorable.

The Elegance in the Details

Every detail of Brianna and Josh’s wedding exuded sophistication and love and we loved curating the vendors for this day. From the beautifully crafted invitations to the delicate table settings and greenery, furniture rentals from Borrow Curated, a custom seating chart, vintage car and more!

One of the most remarkable aspects of their wedding was the intimate feeling that pervaded the celebration. With a backyard wedding, the couple and their guests shared in a close-knit atmosphere, with family styled meals that made the day even more special. Everyone felt like part of the family, and that sense of unity and love was palpable throughout the event.

In the end, Brianna and Josh’s wedding was a stunning example of what can be achieved when creativity meets love. The overall choice of colors, theme, the romantic garden vibe, and the elegant details all came together to create a day that was unforgettable and deeply personal. It was a celebration of their unique love story, set against the backdrop of a transformed backyard that became a place of enchantment and beauty. Not to mention the grand finale of fireworks!
