Sweet New Jersey Backyard Wedding: Amanda + Alex

New Jersey wedding

We’re totally suckers for a sweet backyard wedding, and if we were to throw one ourselves right now, it might look something like Amanda + Alex’s charming homespun New Jersey nuptials. For these cuties, as much focus was placed on their guests as was on the two of them. And that turned their day into a celebration filled with so much love + meaning, it couldn’t not be a total success. Let’s hear a little bit more about all that from Amanda:

The most important focus for us was to make the day about our family and friends. My cousin married us and together with his wife, we all wrote our ceremony. My father started making wine a few years ago and bottled it for our favors. We had wedding pictures of our parents and grandparents throughout the space, as well as, special moments that belonged to our family. In terms of design, we wanted to bridge the whimsy that stems from vintage pieces with the pure, natural setting of the outdoors. We did not want to be too serious, but we did want to make sure our guests felt like they were celebrating the most special day of our lives.

Big thanks to Jessica OH Photography for sharing these gorgeous images from Amanda + Alex’s day with us! And fun news for GWS readers who are currently looking for a photographer to capture their wedding! Book Jessica for a wedding and mention you found her on GWS and you will receive a $500 discount on your wedding package! :)

These vintage-meets-woodland tablescapes are our fave! With natural elements like moss, pinecones, and branches, paired with thrift store finds + family heirlooms, it wouldn’t be too hard to achieve a similar look, which we think would be perfect for fall + winter weddings!

Bright + Textural Wedding Inspiration

pretty lace backdrop

What do you get when you pair vibrant color with incredible texture and beautiful blooms? You’re looking it at, friends! The creatives behind today’s editorial, Mint Photography, The Confetti Committee and Bricolage Florals, wanted to inspire the non-traditional bride and groom to incorporate pops of bright colors + lots and lots of lace into their day! We just so happen to love both of those things! And we’re guessing that all of you who are planning a wedding for next spring are probably starting to really brainstorm the design and dream up the fun details at this point, so we’re hopeful that this gorgeous setting will inspire you in more ways than one. It’s just oh-so-perfect for a springtime soiree!

From Allie and Kelly of Mint Photography, This summery shoot is both modern and bohemian, with a very relaxed feel. We love the whimsical look of all things bohemian, but we are also continuously attracted to bold colors and a modern vibe. This shoot was an attempt to marry these two loves.

Tell us that is not the most gorgeous backdrop! We love all the different types of lace fabric the team sourced. This set-up would make the sweetest ceremony or photobooth backdrop, in our opinion.
