More and more couples ditch a grand venue for an intimate backyard wedding. Tara Marie Photography shares this simple and relaxed wedding that emphasizes the importance of being surrounded by family and friends on that special day.
Mary and Jimmy married in the same place they met: the groom’s parent’s backyard in Templeton, CA. Rustic wood and bright flowers were used as decor. They decided against a traditional cake cutting or garter toss, and no one seemed to mind. Guests ate, drank and were merry and comfortable. “Everything from the ceremony location to the onsite Santa Maria Barbeque, to the table decor, had our style written all over it. The day was exactly as we envisioned and we would have not changed a single thing,” gushed the happy couple.
