Olivia + Jeremy’s Backyard Wedding at Her Grandmother’s Home in Connecticut was Way More Romantic Than a Traditional Venue
Picture this: the warm glow of string lights, the sound of soft music drifting on the breeze, and the comforting familiarity of your grandmother’s home in Connecticut. From the charm of personalized details to the sentimental location, there are many reasons why having a backyard wedding at Olivia’s grandmother’s home was the perfect choice for her special day.
One of the most sweet and meaningful parts of a backyard wedding is the opportunity to infuse personal details into the decor. From family heirlooms to homemade centerpieces, Olivia and Jeremy created a truly heart centered day, from getting ready in her childhood bedroom, to taking film photos in the same spots her mother did on her wedding day.
The natural beauty of your backyard absolutely worked to their advantage. Elements like lush greenery, blooming flowers, and twinkling lights created the most romantic and intimate setting. The presence of so many childhood memories for Olivia really added an extra layer of sentimentality to an already memorable day.
Before the party, we walked down the block to the beach, where we danced around in the sand at sunset and Olivia and Jeremy got to have some really sweet and needed alone time before they rejoined their reception. It was a perfect night– and I don’t think I’ll ever get over how intentional and sweet it was. Truly a dream wedding with dream humans.
