A Backyard Wedding in Missouri: Logan + Josh

Today’s wedding is all the way from Missouri and just screams fun! I totally love the groomsmen + their fun hats! And Logan’s grandmother made her wedding dress! Wow. So so special. :) Logan + Josh were married on their family’s property in southern Missouri and had Alec Vanderboom capture their day. Love the good ‘ol southern flair for their wedding. Congrats to Logan + Josh!

What song did you walk down the aisle to? My Sweet My Lovely by Plumb, which was played on acoustic guitar by my cousin Jacob. It gave me shivers!

Most memorable moment of your wedding day? Saying I do of course! And, aside from the typical answer, getting to hug my grandma after she saw me in the wedding dress she had made herself was probably one of my most proud moments.

Any advice for those planning now? Don’t stress, don’t worry. Whatever ideas you have that don’t make it into the final phase of the wedding, nobody will even know were suppose to be there.

  1. a) top hats? SO COOL. 2) I love the color of the bridesmaid dresses! 3) The bride’s hairdo is awesome, and paired with a birdcage veil she looks like a movie star.

  2. I love that her grandmother made her wedding dress! That’s one stylish and talented grandma, as well as one very special wedding dress.

  3. What is better than an outdoor wedding with the grooms men wearing top hats and the most lovely couple ever….nothing!
    Beautiful wedding!

  4. Wow, now why can’t we have weddings like this in the UK….? Well apart from not being able to get the weather good enough for long enough. I really like the style, loving the blue bridesmaids’ dresses and the yellow that is just beautiful. Congratulations to the happy couple and to the photographer/designer/planner for a really cool looking wedding!
