Jessica & Mike: The most fun backyard wedding. Ever.


These 2, their 12 bridesmaids, 12 groomsmen, friends and family sure do know how to celebrate!  The love was genuine and the party was a good time. It was the perfect wedding.
More than anything we love when a bride, groom, and their bridal party know how to let loose and have fun! They were outgoing, funny, kind, considerate, stylish, beautiful and silly! Thats my favorite recipe for a human being. Really.
Thanks Jessica + Mike!! We’re crazy about you guys!

I usually hang out with the girls and Steve hangs out with the guys, but since this bridal party was 26 PEOPLE DEEP we figured we should double team the “getting ready shots”. I’ve gotta admit it… these guys getting ready were HILARIOUS. I hid in the kitchen until they were like 90% dressed and the things I heard while they were getting ready… haha… OHHHH the things I heard.  The majority of the guys have never worn a fitted suit before and watching them check themselves out was pretty darn funny.
Mike’s mom has a friend in Idaho that handmade all 13 ties and they looked so cool and unique on the guys!
Jessica + Mike had a first look and we just adored it. This couple had US laughing!
This bridal party was SO FUN! They were down for anything and did it with a smile. In the 2 photos below I had them impersonate Mike and then Jessica. It was a riot!
The accordion is my very favorite instrument and it was beyond cool that they had an accordion, guitar, and banjo playing during the ceremony.
Mike is a graphic designer and made all of their paper goods! Aren’t they cool??
The reception took place at Jessica’s childhood home and it was obvious how special that was for her. Her parents backyard was the absolute perfect setting for their wedding! Not to mention they got to do a SWEET grand entrance!
Aaaaaaand then they DANCED!
