Some of our favorite weddings are the DIY backyard weddings where brides and grooms put their heart and soul into their big day. These weddings often include family heirlooms, homemade decor and close friends and family. The wedding featured below was no exception. We got to head out to rural Dade City to the bride’s family’s property, complete with cows and chickens (which Sadie immediately fell in love with!).

The father of the bride had built some amazing decorations including these rustic doors for the couple to enter through and barrels all over. They chose a beautiful oak tree to get married under, and it was right next to the parents’ home. For their reception, they had a dance floor set up in the back yard and lots of seating for guests. As the night drew to an end, you could see almost every star in the sky and we were reluctant to ever leave!

Once we finished ...

I never owned a collection of USF shirts or bumper stickers, but I have a lot of fond memories of that place. During college I made tons of close friends and I miss the times we spent together dearly. Even though I attended USF in Tampa, I knew the satellite campus would somehow still feel like home... Stephanie and Tim were nothing short of amazing. It was apparent how in love they were, and the four of us hit it off immediately. I particularly loved how ...
