Real Weddings: Erin & Eric

Every girl dreams of having a wonderful wedding day. Some dream of large castles…some of tropical destinations…and other girls dream of having an intimate home affair. This was exactly the type of wedding I recently was a guest at. My dear friend Erin dreamed of having a beautiful wedding at their home. The weather was perfect…the location couldn’t be more welcoming..and the mood was perfect to feature it on my blog!

The ceremony was held in the front yard, where the entryway was adorned with fresh green garland around the iron posts. While the door had a lovely green, ivory & purple hydrangea wreath. It served as the perfect alter. The attire was classic and elegant. The groom wore a black suit with a lavender tie and purple sweet pea boutonniere, while the bridesmaids wore black silk dresses with purple, green & ivory bouquets. One of the most important aspects of this wedding, was the wonderful participation by Erin & Eric’s daughter. She wore a pretty lavender dress.

As the guests anticipated the bride walking out of the limo, Eric walked over to the car with their lovely daughter Allison and helped Erin out of the car. The three of them walked proudly down the isle.

The bride walked down the isle in an elegant Ramona Keveza ball gown style dress in ivory. She too held a hydrangea, sweet pea & rose bouquet.

After the ceremony, we all went to the backyard where a white tent was set up with hydrangea centerpieces. There was lots of dancing, a wonderful bonfire by the bar and a comfortable feel to the whole event. The bride and groom along with their daughter cut the white with Bailey’s cream cake. They looked like such a wonderful family as they fed each other.

There are tons of wedding you attend, and witness…but this event was by far one of my favorites. I think the best aspect of this wedding was the fact that the couple chose a location significant to them and I think it shows couples that you can absolutely have a wonderful event in your backyard with a little vision and organization.

It was a pleasure to be at this wedding.
