Real Wedding: Jennifer + Joshua’s Backyard Bash

I just love this backyard bash that Shira from Martha Stewart Weddings shared with me. The spring 2011 issue comes out this weekend and this wedding in Livermore, California has tons of cute details! Complete with handdrawn patterned linens and paper goods illustrated by the bride, tons of cute DIY touches (like chairs made by the groom and vellum birds), a trio of piñatas stuffed with confetti and lottery tickets, and their adorable bow-tied dog, Peanut. Here is a peak at their wedding…
