Offbeat partner: Caroline & Price
Date and location of wedding: Our backyard, Austin, Texas — 11/26/2020
Our backyard microwedding at a glance:
Our original wedding was planned for September of 2020, up in Northern Michigan where my family spends their summers. Because we are all from Texas, it required travel, and it was just not feasible during covid. We made the decision to cancel the wedding in July, a couple of months out. We postponed until September 2021, which felt like so far away–we had already been engaged for two years!
I love traditional decor, especially blue and white. I already had one of the tablecloths from Anthropologie, and I had my seamstress make a second one with some beautiful blue and white floral fabric I picked out. The blue willow plates are my set that I own, that I thrifted a few years ago. The fox hunting silver goblets and silver flatware were both my great-grandmother's. I picked up some candle holders from goodwill to set the mood, and that was it!
About my backyard microwedding ceremony
What was the most important lesson you learned from your wedding?
A nine person wedding can be just as intimate and special as a 100 person wedding! We felt so much love that night, and because it was intimate I know every guest felt it too. It's okay to throw all of your expectations out the window. It's okay to scale back and focus on what's important instead — your marriage.

Wow, great idea. I never thought I could photograph a backyard wedding. But it sounds so great! That’s for the inspiration!
LOVE Lana’s flower collar! This whole wedding is gorgeous – the blue and white table clothes are so backyard-elegant.
HI.. We have bought the rings, he will propose very soon and I am thinking of a backyard wedding for us. We do not necessarily need or want a long engagement either (shortest 3 months, longest 6 months). We are very much in love and I am in love with the idea of a small backyard wedding. Do you happen to have any more articles on backyard weddings?? Most importantly I just cannot wait to be his wife, so I’m starting my research now instead of later.. Thank you for any and all help!
