We had so much fun working on Katie and Max’s wedding, and we’re just loving seeing it in print in Southern Weddings. We’ll save the details behind this backyard affair until later in the year when we do a full post with some of our favorite images captured by Jodi Miller Photography. In the meantime, see more over here in their gallery.

You know, normally on Wednesdays I post inspiration boards based on Richmond locations, like Tuckahoe Plantation, Main Street Station or Clover Forest Plantation, but, I thought it would be nice to pay homage, today, to a wedding of another sort. One that doesn’t require rental of an event space at all: the backyard wedding.
At-home weddings are so intimate. And for brides who are looking for affordable, practical options, an at-home wedding can be a really attractive option. Without the expense of an event rental, you can free-up your budget for other things – a fuller menu, splurging on your favorite photographer, ordering peonies or ranunculus for your arrangements.
Mix and match china and flatware available to you through immediate family members to create really beautiful place settings that don’t cost a thing. Wouldn’t it be fun to round up lots of mason jars and vintage table clothes at antique stores too?
