Saturday I went to a wedding. This was my first wedding in two years, and maybe my third wedding total. I went to weddings as a child, but I don’t remember them, so for my adult life we will just count the ones I know of..which makes the total three.
Truth be told, I love weddings. I love the energy of a good wedding, and I turn to complete mush during the ceremony. This wedding was different though, this wedding was unique.
This was the most adorable wedding. Backyard, country, relaxed, eclectic themed bliss. The groom on the left has the most amazing decorative eye, and I want him to plan my wedding. Their house is so tranquil it’s like a secret garden getaway.
This wedding was almost completely DIY and there is something so romantically adorable about that to me. So much love was put into creating such a unique experience.
I couldn’t help but secretly wish I had offered to make cupcakes for them. Not only would I have had an excuse to bake, but to be able to secretly give all these people vegan cupcakes would have been amazing. Owell, next time..
What’s a wedding without a photo booth? I think I prefer this rugged “face in hole” style better. Get you cameras out, this is a snap it yourself photo booth.
The love and support from the friends and family of these two men was amazing. It’s refreshing to be around people who are accepting of all people, and I feel blessed to live in a state that is allowing everyone to show their love. Equality at its finest.
- Do you like going to weddings? YES YES YES!
- Traditional church weddings, or unique outdoors? OUTSIDE!

Weddings are so fun, and you look super cute. That looks like a really gorgeous creative wedding — our wedding was outdoors, and I loved it!
Love your dress! Super cute!
I like all wedding, inside or outside…I think they all have their place 🙂

I am a HUGE sucker for a wedding! I absolutely LOVE them! 🙂 I definitely plan on having a church wedding, but I would’ve loved to have been attendance at this backyard wedding. Everything is so creative, and just wondering, what was for dinner?!
AH how could I forget to mention food!! Well I didn’t really eat much food (I ate before I came just in case) but they had lots of fresh finger foods for the mingling hour, and then for dinner fresh summer like salads and pasta salads with fresh BBQ’d meats and fruits. It looked delicious and all of it was made right before people ate!!
The same groom with the decorative eye was/is a chef so he said he made a majority of the foods!! LOVE that!
Love this! And you are too cute… how do you get such perfect eyebrows!! Hah need to know your secret
Oh girl you kill me, your comment made my year haha. I have ALWAYS struggled with my tiny eyebrows and I don’t really do much except add some color to them to make them pop because they are SO light without color. Also I use a pencil to add just a LITTTTLE bit more length to them because THEY SHORT!
I am the furthest from makeup knowledgeable so I just kind of experiment, good to know I don’t look like a troll. HAHA.

Awww cute!! I love the outfit – great choice! Also that wedding looks adorable 🙂 I love how laid back and relaxed it was – perfection! And I wish that I could’ve had an outdoor wedding… but Adam and I are getting married this January, so that wasn’t really an option. However we will hopefully get to take a little getaway every year on our anniversary that might include some nice outside things! Oh well – I guess I’d just rather get married! I guess that was a sign enough for me, if I was willing to throw away my ideas for a wedding just to get married, that’s good enough for me! 🙂
This wedding looks like so much fun!
I mean traditional weddings are fun, but so are unique ones! I think any wedding that brings to people together in love is a beautiful thing.
Your dress is adorable, and I love the one Groom’s pink bow tie:)

OH MY… I could write a NOVEL of all the weird weddings I have been to….. My sister’s wedding however was the last one I went to… And that was in September. it actually went pretty smoothy except for ONE PART……. Yeah, my sister and her husband met on Match.com – and well NO ONE including my dad knew about this, and for some WEIRD REASON my sister’s husband’s step-father decided it would be a REALLY GREAT idea to tell EVERYONE during his speech! WHAT A FU**!!!!!! My stomach fell out of my ass, my sister chugged a bottle of wine and her husband could have KILLED. BUT… You know what saved the day? Apparently I did! I should have worn my SUPER WOMAN CAPE OR SOMETHING! ha ha ha ah ha ha! My speech was apparently hysterical… and I mean if I can get my parents to laugh, then that means it really was funny! HA! I am sorry, I am totally patting myself on the back right now…
But YEAH SO OTHER WEDDINGS – I have more than 50 1st cousins, so I have PLENTY of stories! However if I knew about this wedding you went to, I would have been your date!!!!!
AHH I WOULD HAVE walked in there so proud with you on my arm!! That story about your sisters husbands step-father (say that three times fast) is sooo good, and by good I mean I WOULD HAVE DIED! Crazy they didn’t tell anyone I mean..it’s not that big of a deal..lots of people meet online these days, but that is NOT the way to let everyone know hahahaah. Thank god for you and your humor.
You’ll have to tell me all your wedding stories while we drink green tea in AUSTRALIA because you better win that trip and I am going with you!

OMG I KNOW I BETTER WIN! I made them a damn video… that counts as like 80 submissions! AH HA HA HA!!!! PS: where are my weird text messages! LOL!
The Healthy Flavor
I’m butting in…omg Gigi that is absolutely crazy! My jaw dropped! What a weirdo for telling everybody like that!
GiGi Eats Celebrities
OMG I know right!!!!! I literally die!!! My mother was cursing at my sister’s husband’s real mother… And my dad was looking at me in his drunken stupor, like: Whatt’s goinnnggg on?!?! It’s just sad because the following day at brunch, that was the topic of conversation, not: Oh wow, the wedding was lovely! – Needless to say, my sister and her husband did not speak to the step father until XMAS (they married September 22, lol) .
Alex @ Cookie Dough Katzen
I love how down to earth this wedding looks. That’s the way to have a good time! I love weddings. I went to one 2 weeks ago and they had a similar theme with wooden signs and it was outdoors. The service was literally everyone walking down the aisle, vows said, and done! My kinda’ wedding! Oh, and drinks were served before the wedding. Clearly, these people are a good time! Love your dress!
You are adorable and so are the newlyweds! Looks like so much fun – I want to go to a wedding now!
Love your dress, love the photo booth, love the cupcakes, LOVE IT ALL! I can’t wait until my friends start getting married so I can go to weddings. Notice that I didn’t say I couldn’t wait to get married- too much stress. I’d rather just attend all the parties and dress up cute 🙂
AGREED! No marriage for me anytime soon haha. Until then I will just swoon for others!
You look so pretty! I love the close up of your beautiful mug. This backyard is fricken amazing!!! I love going to weddings and prefer out door weddings…. I have never been to one though… haha my wedding count is at exactly 1!
come march it’ll be 2!!!!
YAYAYAYAYAYA!!!!! I was going to say the SAMEEEE thing, but you beat me to it!! MARCH MARCH MARCH!
This is SIMPLY charming. Romantic. Simple. I love every little detail and although I have been to like 56 weddings, I have never been to a DIY backyard wedding with two grooms. Jelly. I think you should definitely have them plan your wedding… or maybe they can help me with mine b/c I don’t know what I’m doing other than I want to be Mr Speedy’s wife and I don’t want any animals involved.
You are suuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuper cute!!!!! Like stinkin’ cute. If i were at the wedding, I would have singled you out and approached you and been like LET BE FRIENDSSSSS.
kathy @ vodka and soda
you are absolutely adorable and your caption under your first pic made me LOL on a conference call!
i LOVE outdoor weddings too!
Love the pictures. All the decor is so unique!! I wish I was that creative! You look great!
I love outdoor weddings too. I went to one in Maui many years ago. It was so much fun! I want to have a getaway wedding!
Brittany @ GOtheXtraMile
That is the cutest wedding ever!!! and you look gorgeous!!
Oh my gosh, that wedding is so unique and sweet. I definitely won’t be having my own soon, but I love seeing what other people are doing 🙂 so creative.
awww you look so cute! Looks like they got a lot of cute ideas from Pinterest :p Last wedding I went to was my friends and I was in the wedding party…. she has us in these like prom dresses LOL I’m hoping my next wedding I got to is my Sister’s I told her I’m going to be an AWESOMEEEEE MOH hahahaha
You look so good! I love it! And I love unique weddings which are full of DIY things! I watch Four Weddings on TLC a lot and always love the ones where they make everything and it’s not overdone. I would loooove to have an outdoor wedding except you always take the chance of having bad weather!
Your dress is SO pretty!! And seriously, how pretty and delicious do those cupcakes look?? Yum!
Ahhhhh! I love this! What a wonderful wedding. You look freaking adorable as always. I haven’t been to many weddings either, in my adult life I’ve been to a total of 1. Lame. Anyways, I am such a sucker and it makes me want to get married and be all cute. Okay, I don’t actually want to be married just yet…but in those moments my brain thinks it does!
Amy @ A Desert Girl
The best weddings are the ones that reflect the personalities of the parties involved and I can tell from the pictures that this one totally did that. I love all the little special DIY touches.
And his pink bow tie? Love it. Love love love.
You, my friend, are soooo pretty. I love the pic of you laughing with the grooms.
This wedding looks beautiful!! I love all the DIY touches 🙂
Aren’t they adorable! Congrats to your friends. WA for the win!!
I also enjoy secret vegan baked goods. In fact I’m planning to bake something for our childbirth education class this week. They will never know! 🙂
It’s icing on the cake when everyone is like, “OH my gosh these are so good” to one of my treat and then I’m like BOOYA IT’s vegan!! AHAH! Surprise!
The Savvy Sister
They are adorable and you fit right in!
LOOOOOVE weddings!! And can I say just how freakin adorable and gorgeous you are all wrapped into one?!
A Tablespoon of Liz
That looks like such a fun wedding! I hate to say it, but I’ve probably been to even less weddings than you!
Angela @ Health's Angel
Love this, and you look so cute. I’ve only been to two weddings: one outdoor wedding and one very traditional, indoor church wedding. I definitely preferred the former! IF (big if) I ever get married, I want it to be small, intimate and on the beach. Kind of a cliché with the beach thing…but that would fit me to a T.
Aww this sounds like the perfect wedding! I love the rustic look too. Something about indoor weddings make me slightly claustrophobic (although it IS nice to have a roof when unexpected rains come…). And I’d totally jump at the chance if you offered to make vegan cupcakes for me! 🙂
Alex @ therunwithin
I am so with you, I love weddings more than anything. so much fun to go to. just the atmosphere is something that you can’t create anywhere else
Heather @ HeatherRunsFast.com
You look so Puuuurty! (like how I made it cat-like?!) I have been to/been in so many weddings the past few years, I am weddinged out! GOING to weddings are pretty fun, but being in them can take its toll, haha. I love the eclectic-ness! Different is fun 🙂 I prefer outside weddings (mine was!) 🙂 If you feel like baking you can always FedEx me some vegan goods… just sayin’.
The wedding looks so quaint and spectacular!! And dang you clean up nice without the sweat and sneakers haha!!
You are such a sweetheart. Love the selfie! My husband and I DIY’ed a lot of our wedding too. It made it much more a representation of ‘us’ than if some wedding planner had done it. Plus, it’s just fun to make stuff! In general though, I dislike attending weddings. Such long speeches, long periods of standing up…. just long everything. I think I would’ve enjoyed this one though! x
You look awesome girl!
That wedding is so adorable!! Congrats to your friends 🙂
Hehehe you’re so cute Britt! I love that first picture of you and your funny caption. It’s okay, we all struggle with trying to look normal in “alone” pictures. 😛
And I loooove the whimsical decor! It’s my favorite kind because everything is so creative and relaxed.
Melissa @ Al Forno Mementos
adorable wedding. and your eyes are so gorgeous!! hope that’s not creepy. haha def love the self taking photobooth as well. very rustic!
Awww, not creepy at all!! Thank you my friend :).
The Healthy Flavor
You look beautiful! Adorable dress. You have the prettiest teeth and smile EVA! I like both indoor and outdoor weddings, as long as its not too hot! What a cute wedding!
Jan @ Sprouts n Squats
I’ve been to lots of weddings and always enjoy them. You look so cute in your outfit.
I love weddings where the couple’s personality shows through whether that is indoors/outdoors whatever 🙂
Change of Pace
You look gorgeous!
I love the eclectic feel of this wedding! It looks adorable and so fun!
Congratulations to your friends!
I’ve been to too many weddings! The year we got married we went to, I think, nine. It weddinged me out for life!
1. You look gorgeous. Love the outfit
2. This may be one of the best wedding themes I’ve seen. I’m actually quite jealous i dont know the wedding party. I wanna get a photo in the ‘photo booth’
I love, love, love your dress!! You look absolutely gorgeous!!
That wedding is adorable. I’ve only been to one wedding when I was like seven, and I was the flower girl. I loved it so much and really want to go to another wedding, but I guess I just don’t know the right people because none of them have gotten married since 😉
Even though I’ve only been to one wedding, it was also outside, and I definitely think that’s the way to go. Someday, I would love to get married on the beach (and be taken away on horseback instead of in a car…), but if the beach doesn’t work, it will definitely be outside!

So sweet, so cute. That’s the way to get married.
Life After Swimming
SUCH an awesome wedding! I am 110% all for marriage equality! Love it! Such cute decor!!
love outdoor weddings, really hope to have one someday!!
btw, perfect eyebrows. you win at life!
Nicole @ FruitnFitness
I love weddings! Love them! It looks like that was a beautiful wedding, I love the cool outdoor decorations and pretty flowers and cupcakes. I am often a total mush at weddings, like I think I always cry. At least it’s happy crying.
Khushboo Thadani (@KhushbooThadani)
I’ve actually never been to an altar wedding! I’ve been to several Indian weddings but hope to witness an altar wedding soon where the bride walks down the aisle in a gorgeous white dress! Either way, weddings are such a magical experience to be a part of!
Lucy @ Lucy On The Lookout
Aww I’ve turned a little mushy just by looking through these photos – too cute! What a lovely occasion and love the little signs 🙂 I’ve just been to a wedding reception this weekend which was no way as DIY as this but pretty similar – outdoors of a pub, handmade decorations, BBQ for food, homemade cupcakes and wedding cakes, totally fab! So I’m a total convert. I do however have a more traditional wedding to attend in a month so I’ll have to compare then 😉 PS love the dress- the print, the cut, everything!
I just went on a Blissful Brit marathon! I had a lot of catching up to do!
I can’t believe that wedding…so awesome! I bet your friends are so much fun, too.
I love weddings because basically it’s the only time I get out on a dance floor these days. Unless my apt and my car count.
PS- You go on the slug moment! Divide and conquer!
I love weddings of all types and shapes and sizes.
I was just in one that was an INCREDIBLE amount of work.
This outdoor wedding looks perfectly suited to the grooms.
Thanks for sharing your adventures with us, as always.
You look super adorable! Love the last picture where you’re laughing :)!
Christina Does It All
You look so beautiful/adorable! And that dress looks great on you. Looks like such a fun wedding too!
Rach @ This Italian Family
Oh Britt, you are so pretty! Seriously, just gorgeous!
This looks absolutely amazing. Such cute ideas. I love the photo with you and the grooms. It sounds like it was a peaceful wedding. The way that they all should be right? And this signs, GENIUS.

I love weddings, love your dress and love that selfie, Britt! Totally gorgeous! My pick is outdoor weddings, country style (wow, what a surprise, I know) and I’m already getting ideas for my daughter, lol, and she’s only just started dating this guy:D xx
Luv What You Do
What a cute and fun wedding! I have been to WAY too many weddings so it’s great to turn 30 and slow down a bit.
I’ve never learned how to pose for pictures either. I end up looking way too weird to blog about it! You look so lovely in all of the wedding pictures! The wedding you went to was SO unique. I love it! I can tell the couple has great personalities! It really seems like a wedding season right now. I’ve been to 3 in the last 2 years which is more than I EVER have gone to in my life! 🙂
Yay weddings! I love the theme of the wedding you went to… it’s just so unique and creative and cute. Just looking at your pictures makes me all happy and smiley haha. My brother’s wedding is this weekend… CRAZY! The ceremony is at our church and the reception is at his fiance’s house… outside! They have tents set up and everything. I think it’s going to be a blast. Now I want to get married.
I love your awkward picture. I’m the same way…. like what am I supposed to do with my hands?!
This entire post makes me want to get married all over again (to the same guy, of course). We did the HUGE church wedding thing with a giant reception. I was in a gown that I nearly killed myself in by tripping over the train. I would’ve much preferred this lovely, rustic, intimate shindig with dear family & friends where everything was casual but chic. Thanks for much for sharing. Congratulations to the couple! P.S. Only movie stars & models know how to stand alone and take a picture without looking awkward. You look beautiful!
Everyone looks adorable! As far as weddings, the best are ones that fit the couple. If that’s something on a mountain top,perfect! If it’s in a church, great! Personally, I want mine to be laid back and outside.
You are stunning!! That wedding decor is too cute! Perfect for summer! I am from a pretty small town with a humongous family…which means I’ve been to so many weddings I couldn’t even count them if I tried. In the next 12 months we have 7 weddings to go to!!! Redonk!
What a beautiful wedding. You look wonderful and the pictures really capture the little details that seemed to make this such a special event.
Hooray for happy weddings (I love them).
You are adorable and so is that wedding! I’m a HUGE fan of unique weddings and outside is icing on the cake. Love it!!
di @ life of di.
1) You look so pretty and I love the dress 🙂 2) I love backyard weddings. There is something so charming, elegant and just romantic about them 🙂 I love the little decorations around this garden! 3) I really enjoy going to weddings – especially when it’s for someone I’m close to!

Wow, these guys really went all out, and it shows. I adore the personal touches and was happy to hear they were surrounded by loving and supportive people.
How did you resist those cupcakes? Nerves of steel, I tell you.
Kristina at damntenpounds
What a great wedding! I love the personally touches (I spy Ms. Betty Page on the bar!) and wish I was that creative. I am all in for unique weddings that show off a couples personality. And so happy to see equality in action! Cheers!
