There are few things we love more than a simple and sweet backyard wedding! Today we're sharing one that's poised to be our new favorite. Filled with romantic details and a slightly vintage feel, the bride and groom's special day took place at the groom's parent's house in Atherton, CA. From the first look to the sparkler getaway, this romantic wedding day was filled with meaning and joy! A few words about the wedding from Lauren of Nicoella Event Design:

Tiffany & Charlie are college sweethearts. In deciding on a venue for their wedding, they chose to hold their ceremony and reception in Charlie’s parents’ backyard garden, the very same place Charlie’s parents had gotten married decades before. The venue was a fantastic blank canvas.

Tiffany worked with us to create a wedding that was both romantic and vintage inspired but took into account the garden setting. We came up with a décor scheme that incorporated elegant flowers, rustic wood, lace and antiques. Tiffany found a vintage inspired dress. We chose to create the aisle with oak stumps and pretty arrangements in mason jars. Tiffany and Charlie were married under a delicate fabric swatch alongside of fourteen of their best friends.

Dinner was set at wooden banquet tables with antique books, birch planters, and vintage key escort cards. Rather then have a traditional cake, Tiffany and Charlie opted for a dessert bar set on a rustic vintage bar. Guests danced the night away to the couples' favorite bluegrass bands. We set up a lounge area of vintage chairs and a fainting couch for guests to rest at in between sets. It was a night to be remembered.

Captured elegantly by Dylan John Western, Tiffany and Charlie's big day truly was a memorable celebration. Read on for more beautiful photos!
