Backyard Wedding Bliss

I'm not much for Hollywood movies, but I took myself on a date tonight featuring cheese and wine, followed by a showing of Bridesmaids. It was filled with many good laughs, but I took particular note of the wedding in the end which was the opposite of any nuptial event I would ever want to partake in. Fireworks, laser show, lavender bridesmaids dresses, abundant ruffles and Wilson Phillips...need I say more?

To me, the ideal wedding has been a foggy image, perhaps thwarted by young single motherhood and lots of Mr. Wrongs. But the ever-inspiring City Sage blog post that landed in my in-box yesterday had me daydreaming once again. A rustic backyard affair with multi-colored wildflowers, vintage decorations, guests that don't feel like they need to cover their tattoos, indie folk music floating me down the makeshift aisle, simple and relaxed in every way......now we're talking.

Check out the full City Sage post here, featuring beautiful images by Noa of Feather Love Photography. Or head on over to Feather Love Photography for dozens of shots from the day: detailed glimpses of the decorations, portraits of the uber-hip bridal party, and festive food tables that all had me weeping with joy. And if you still haven't had your fill, the wedding was featured in Green Wedding Shoes.
