This was my friend's wedding that I planned and it was the perfect combination of backyard with a little bit of vintage from the BBQ to the paper lanterns to the smore's pit. The event popped with the heart and soul of the couple with mint and peach throughout the venue.
A full on dessert and candy table located in the sunroom greeted guests as they traveled from the ceremony to the cocktail hour. Here, guests ohh'ed and ahh'ed their way through smore's, rock candy, crème filled cupcakes, snickerdoodle and sugar cookies, gummy bears, rice krispy treats, white chocolate balls, caramel chocolate, mint m & m's and much more!
Scented miniature candles placed inside small kraft bags with a personalized label that held the bride and groom's name and said "Thank You."
Activities / Games
Games area with cards, bocce ball and horseshoes. There was a hula hoop challenge and twenty question game for guests during dinner and after the cake cutting.
Watching the Chinese lanterns light up the night sky.
The best moment was when guests switched the girl who caught the bouquet with the groom's brother in law who closely resembles the Brawny guy. Blindfolded, as the groom's brother slid his hand up the brother in law's leg, it was quite the moment!
Most Touching Moment
The bride and groom wrote their own vows but were unable to make it through them as they were crying to hard. It was a testament to their love for one another.
The Bride, of course!
What People Ate
With the Bride's family being from the south, guests feasted on southern food. This included BBQ chicken, pulled pork, mac and cheese, beans, rice, bacon potato salad, corn on the cob and rice.
What People Drank
From the tropical signature drink to an open beer and wine bar, there was plenty to keep guests hydrated. The sweet tea and the pink lemonade in glass dispensers ensured that the backyard feel was in full effect. If that was not enough, guests could drink Coca-Cola, orange soda, cream soda and water from old fashioned glass bottles.
A great backyard wedding complete with a mint and peach color theme.
