Brandi and Michael’s beautiful backyard wedding is giving us all the feels. We love that this adorable couple got married in their very own backyard. We love that they paid careful attention to so many thoughtful details for their guests. Oh, and that they had a band, a stunning sparkler display, a dance floor, AND allowed dogs! And, most of all, we love the relaxed, carefree vibe of their wedding. Luckily, Shoop-Shots Photography was on hand to capture the spirit of the day. A day full of love, happiness, togetherness, family and friends.
Before The Ceremony
Brandi and her bridal party got ready in the house before the ceremony. They shared lots of laughter and tender moments. Like this precious glimpse of Brandi’s daughter Bristol taking a long look at her mama’s wedding dress!
Gorgeous Brandi rocked a pair of cowboy boots with her Sincerity Bridal Venice Lace Fit and Flare dress from the Gilded Gown.
Layers of organza, tulle and Chantilly lace combined in this romantic fit and flare wedding dress. We love that Brandi customized the gown by adding lace sleeves, too.
Getting ready at your own house seems so effortless and cozy. Plus you don’t have to pack up all your wedding stuff, either!
Sometimes it takes two to get a bride in a dress!
We think Brandi is thinking, “I’m so happy I’m about to marry the man of my dreams!”
Brandi is a vision of loveliness as she prepares to walk down the aisle. First she stops to straighten her jewelry.
Here Comes The Bride
And we have a picture of utter bridal perfection. Brandi, breathtaking.
Her bouquet combined navy and maroon flowers with fresh pops of green:
Their scenic property provided a picture perfect backdrop for this beautiful bride.
The Bridal Party
Brandi’s bridesmaids included her lovely step-daughter Sydney.
Daughter Bristol was her flower girl.
Sydney shed some sweet tears as she walked down the aisle:
Michael’s guys came out to support him in style in their jeans and shades of navy and maroon.
Michael looked sharp in his suit.
The handsome groom:
The tiny jute rope on the boutonniere lent charm to his arrangement:
Brandi and Michael made sure every detail complimented their color scheme of maroon and navy, and their casual, rustic elegance theme. Galvanized metal held an array of flowers:
A wood framed sign proclaimed their love:
How funny is this barn wood sign alerting attendees that they will be heavily photographed even after visiting the bar a few times!
The table decor included painted mason jars and Gerbera daisies.
They even had a fun cake topper!
Loved ones gathered to celebrate the union.
Groomsmen walked bridesmaids down the aisle.
Brandi was glowing as she faced her future husband.
The couple exchanged their vows with big smiles and happy hearts.
You can see how much they love one another!
As day turned to night, the band started to play.
And, folks took to the dance floor:
They did it! We know Brandi and Micheal will always remember their wedding day and the fun they had with their family and friends. All they have to do is look in their own backyard.
