Lindsay and Devin settled on their home on September 30, 2016. Fast forward exactly one year later to the day, they had all their closest friends and family over for a backyard BBQ and bonfire party to celebrate their wedding! They have a big yard surrounded by trees. They rented a few tents, spread several bonfires out over the lawn, had a comfort food buffet with 3 different kinds of barbecue, and danced the night away under the stars. It was the first truly chilly fall night and everyone was cuddled up by the fires.
We love casual weddings. There’s something special about not worrying about all the fuss… just creating a fun environment for people to have a good time! Lindsay and Devin kept telling us that they don’t like much attention on themselves, so they skipped most of the wedding traditions and just did what they wanted. And it turned out beautifully! Wedding planner extraordinaire Jessica Ashley helped bring their vision to life and kept it stress-free.
During the ceremony, Devin’s brother (who married them) asked them to turn around and look at the crowd for a few minutes. He told them to take a mental picture and remember exactly what it was like to stand in front of everyone they love in the backyard of their home. It was such a beautiful reminder of how important it is to slow down and let it all sink in. We are so happy for these two and loved sharing this day with them!
