Hi!

I hope everyone is holding up ok. We got married on our original date 7.17.20 in very scaled down and intimate ceremony. We postponed the big shebang to next summer 馃 Whatever stress you guys are going through, just try to roll with it. This was not what we had planned but it was an amazing day!


We had the ceremony in my husband's parents' back yard, which ended up having an amazing view! His mom decorated their garage so we could do a mini reception with everyone from the ceremony (immediate family only) because they were worried about coming to the slightly bigger (20 people) reception at my parents' house after. Our photographer (the very talented Christie Green Photography, LLC.) was there for about an hour for the ceremony and mini reception. And then we went to my parents' house. We had two cakes because his mom wanted to have pictures of us cutting it and then my mom and sister made an amazing cake for the reception!


I made my bouquet the day before, which was much trickier than I'd hoped (flowers from many sources including Trader Joe's and some I clipped from the train station haha). I did my own makeup after binging YouTube tutorials. And I got my hair done professionally because I'm no good at it. I didn't wear my big dress this time around. After buying a few dresses I didn't end up liking any of them so my mom remembered this dress she bought on sale 15 years ago. My friend and I used to do "photo shoots" when we were younger and I had worn this dress. My mom dug it out and it had stains all over so we took it to the dry cleaner on a big chance and they actually got 15 year old stains out! So I ended up wearing it!


I'm attaching a lot of pictures because I always love seeing people's wedding posts!

    Wow, love that a minimony could be so beautiful. You lucked out with that backyard. What a view for a ceremony. Love the romantic rustic look of the reception decor. Simply beautiful.

    Absolutely gorgeous, intimate, and so sweet. Your in-law's backyard is seriously amazing -- like, what they heck!?!?? It looks like they live in a Nat'l Park.... Congrats on a day that was nothing like what you planned, but imperfectly perfect nonetheless. Smiley heart
