Today’s backyard fall wedding was held in the her parents backyard in Euless, Texas. It is filled with all sorts of personal and thoughtful DIY details that really showcase the couple’s interests. Kyla and Josh share a passion for bikes and even opened their own bike store. Most of the decor had a tree theme that was reflected throughout their wedding – from the hand painted signs that her parents made to the button gifts and the cut tree circle cake stands. The Bride and Groom seem like a creative and fun couple and Katherine O’Brien did an amazing job capturing their day!
Josh and Kyla are in love with children’s illustrations. They both have tattoos of some of Shel Silverstein’s work, so it was only fitting that they used one of his books as a guest book for people to write wishes, prayers, and hopes!
This necklace had a special significance to Josh and Kyla. It was from Josh’s grandmother who lives in Italy. The inscription means, “This is so you always know that I love you more than yesterday, less than tomorrow.” Josh’s grandmother wanted to give the necklace to Kyla to show her love and presence since she couldn’t be at the wedding due to her age.
Kyla bought her bridesmaids these adorable diamond ring mugs. You can find them here
The fly fishing lures were a meaningful part of the the guy’s boutonnieres. Josh’s grandfather, who passed away a few years ago, taught Josh and all his family how to fly fish. The lures were worn in honor of him.
After the dinner reception they headed into the barn where they served hot chocolate and cider to all the guests. They had a soul train dancing line and the groom and father had a dance off. Being so chilly out the bridesmaids all changed from their dress shoes and danced the night away in comfy UGG boots.
The impromptu throwing of the leaves was the photographer’s idea. It made for a perfect grand exit and fit the tree theme.
