A Backyard Garden Party Wedding: Whitney + Adam

bride and groom

Whitney + Adam both lived in France so they wanted to pull some inspiration for their wedding in Idaho from their love of France. They had their favorite French pastries (such as mille feuilles, fruit tarts, madelines, and macaroons), French dipped roast beef sandwiches, and gave the guests sea-salt French caramels as take home gifts. Their wedding ceremony was a private religious ceremony in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. After the ceremony, they spent some time with their lovely photographer Jaclyn Davis taking photos, then they were off to their reception at Whitney’s parents home.

They wanted the reception to feel like a French garden party and they did such a lovely job! The majority of the decorations were gathered from Whitney’s mother’s home, her grandparents basement and antique stores. The most important thing though to them was that it was a celebration! Whitney’s parents spent months preparing their backyard: gardening, pruning and creating a dance floor in the middle of the yard, complete with a sky ceiling of lights. Congrats to Whitney + Adam on your gorgeous wedding and beautiful life together!

Our wedding day was absolutely perfect! The night before our wedding, we wrote each other letters and read them together the next morning, right before the ceremony. This was so special and definitely helped calm any of our nerves and reminded us why we were getting married in the first place. For those planning weddings, my advice is to not stress about every little detail. Try and delegate to people in your family or friends that are willing to help. My mother was amazing during the whole planning process and took the reins when I was burnt out. You will be stressed no matter what during the planning phase, but try to never lose focus on why you are getting married. Remember that your wedding is only one day of your marriage and you should try and make you and the groom as comfortable and happy as you can be.
