With sunshine finally warming things up, we wanted to share this beautiful backyard wedding! Laura and Stephen, the bride and groom tied the knot in the intimate, quaint setting of their backyard. Surrounded by lush landscape and orange, pale blue, green and chocolate brown flowers by Sahana Creative Floral Design, this sunset affair was the perfect way to celebrate with close friends and family. With help from Trudy Baade and Sarah Pittman of Lagniappe Weddings, the soft light from white paper lanterns set the al fresco reception aglow. Guests dined on fresh menu items featuring herbs and vegetables from the couple’s garden. Laura looked radiant in her gown and accessories from The Bridal Salon at Stanley Korshak. The bridesmaids wore dresses from Bella Bridesmaid in Dallas. The pair also included their beloved canine in the outdoor festivities! We just love how an outdoor soiree provides a happy, relaxed atmosphere to such a perfect day!
