There is something so sweet, simple and endearing about a backyard wedding. Growing up, it feels like so many happy memories took place in our backyards. Having a backyard wedding creates a new memory for you as a couple and for your family, friends and loved ones who have all watched you two grow up to cherish. I love the warm and homey feeling that backyards give to weddings, and the money saver that they can be for couples not wanting to break the bank on their wedding.
This Gilbert, Arizona wedding photographed by Ben Christensen is the perfect example. Kristine and Matt's wedding took place in a backyard surrounded by close family and friends, and tons of lovely homespun + vintage-inspired DIY details like lace and ribbon decorated backdrops, flowers in bottles, hanging tea lights and bistro lights strung in pretty swags all over.
Thanks so much to Ben Christensen for sharing these today!
