Backyard Lavender Garden Party Affair in the Midwest

Photographer’s Comments: “Oh my goodness! I am still swooning over Alyssa + Joey’s backyard garden party wedding! Every part of the day was perfection. Alyssa is an interior designer and her eye for all things lovely did not disappoint! From the beautiful bridal party attire to the hand-built arbor to the family style seating with hand stitched napkins to the jaw-dropping floral arrangements.

“Oh, the florals!! So many stunning pieces everywhere you turned. Alyssa’s vision for a backyard garden party truly came to life because of these!

“On top of all of that, these two are the most precious couple around. They’re high school sweethearts who have long anticipated this day and their overwhelming emotion and affection for one another was palpable. Joey’s tears as Alyssa began to walk down the aisle were so sweet and matched with Alyssa’s visible emotion at finally meeting her groom. She was escorted by her father and the ceremony was officiated by her stepfather, a nod to the family affair that they’d envisioned for their celebration.

“The reception was equally as wonderful with an incredible palate of garden party food, macaroons, baklava, and cake for dessert. There was no dancing, no big fanfare, just a continued celebration of being surrounded by their closest friends and family. They were able to spend time with each guest and enjoy every moment together.

“I love these images just as much as I love this couple, and it was an honor to be a part of their incredible day!”


Custom embroidered handkerchiefs are a neat gift to remember your bridesmaids or bride on the morning of your wedding day.

Could you resist trying one of each macaroon variety on this dessert table!?

Simply scrumptious.
