My all time favorite thing overheard at a wedding happened at Jesse and Alyssa’s backyard event.
It was quite obvious at first glance that the details were just hit out of the park by Alyssa’s mom Pauline. When a guest said, It looks like “Pinterest threw up back here,” Pauline wore that quip like a badge of honor. Her vision was worthy of the finest bridal magazine spread. It was quite editorial and rich in texture and detail. And we loved photographing every single element.
The wedding was small and personal with a guest list of 21. The couple just bought their first home so the bottom line was to keep the wedding affordable yet memorable. They chose a venue that was quite familiar – Alyssa’s childhood back yard which has a backdrop of Dash Point State Park.
The details were exquisite. The color palette was muted and highlighted by pops of color from the Pike Place Flowers. Friends and neighbors were there to lend helping hands to make this wedding very personal. The catering was done by a family neighbor and a groomsman picked the music. Alyssa’s mom served as her wedding planner and designer.
To keep costs down, they did some shopping online and sourced items on Craigslist and Etsy. This really paid off and they spent $4,000 for all decorations, food, drinks, and extras.
We can’t get enough of these details!
