Surrounded by Loved Ones for a Backyard Wedding Reception

Surrounded by the warmth of their loved ones, Kristina and Luke’s second wedding reception in the comfort of their backyard was a heartwarming celebration of their enduring love. The event served as a beautiful reminder of the power of togetherness and the bonds that unite family and friends. It was an opportunity for those who couldn’t attend their original wedding to join in the festivities and show their support for the couple’s journey of love and commitment.

An Intimate and Joyous Affair

The couple wanted their backyard wedding reception to be an intimate and joyous affair, filled with laughter, heartfelt connections, and unforgettable memories. Friends and family gathered in their home, creating a cozy and inviting atmosphere where everyone felt like part of one big family. The familiarity and warmth of the setting allowed for genuine conversations, genuine laughter, and a sense of true belonging.

A Backyard Wedding Reception Filled with Charming Boho Elegance

Kristina and Luke envisioned a beautiful and elegant chic boho ambiance that perfectly reflected their personal style and love for natural beauty. The décor featured lush white and green florals, accented with delicate dried flowers, creating an organic and whimsical aesthetic. Soft string lights and the wooden canopy added a touch of enchantment, bathing the space in a warm and romantic glow.

Delightful Culinary Experience

No party, let alone a backyard wedding reception, is complete with a feast. To treat their guests to a culinary experience that matched the warmth and joy of the occasion, Kristina and Luke enlisted the expertise of Hazy BBQ and Charming Fig. Hazy BBQ served up a mouthwatering full BBQ dinner, tantalizing taste buds with smoky flavors and delectable sides. Meanwhile, Charming Fig curated a visually stunning grazing table, adorned with an array of savory and sweet treats that delighted the senses. The delectable cuisine added an extra layer of enjoyment and indulgence to the festivities.

Celebrating Life's Special Moments

In addition to celebrating their marriage, Kristina and Luke’s second wedding reception was also a joyful celebration of Luke’s birthday. It was a moment to honor and appreciate the milestones and special moments that life brings. The merging of these celebrations created an atmosphere of pure happiness, as friends and family raised their glasses and toasted to love, life, and new beginnings. And of course, no celebration is complete without dancing, and DJ Bonnie made sure the dance floor remained alive and vibrant throughout the night.

Congratulations, Kristina & Luke!

I was lucky enough to celebrate you two not once, but twice and each time was such a joy. Your love and happiness is truly contagious and was felt while witnessing your family and friends celebrating you both as well. 

May this lifetime bring both of you all the joy, laughter, and adventure it has to offer. I hope you never stop celebrating as you did during both of your wedding celebrations!
