I am sure I have said it before, but I LOVE backyard weddings. They always feel so intimate and meaningful and have an energy that you can't get somewhere else. I mean, I might be a little bias since my husband and I had part of our wedding in my parent's backyard... but still, they are just amazing. Now, Eric and Elise did a little bit of both, having their wedding ceremony at a local church, which was super gorgeous and then having the reception in her parent's beautiful backyard. Their backyard was transformed into a romantic wonderland with strings of lights, incredible blush colored table linens and some of the prettiest floral arrangements I have seen, and topped of by being under the canopy of one of Northern California's oak trees (my favorites). I just couldn't have thought of a way to spend my day than to be there with their friends and family celebrating their new life together.
