Eclectic Backyard Wedding: Star + Duncan – Part 2

How gorgeous + intimate was Star + Duncan’s ceremony in the woods!? And now for their super fun backyard reception!

A bit about the design inspiration from Star: I had fallen in love with Heather of Events by Heather Ham and Susan with Peony & Plum‘s work so I knew I didn’t want to have anyone else be a part of my wedding day. When I met with Susan it went kinda like this – “You’re the artist!  I just want something colorful and eclectic!”, and as you can see she completely knocked it out of the park!  Heather was fantastic as always.  She calmed my nerves, kept the ball rolling but most of all made everything look better then I could have imagined.
