Get ready to see this dreamy backyard tent wedding …
Stephanie and Kevin jumped into wedding planning with the help of Katherine, Stephanie’s lovely mom right after they were engaged. They originally had intentions of getting married at a local venue, but after our initial meeting, they were curious if their backyard would work to hold the black-tie affair. After several meetings with Apres, we knew that this was an option and the rest of the details started to be planned!!! Stephanie truly had a vision for what she wanted this tent to look like and how she wanted the day to feel.
The ceremony was in their front yard where guests were greeted with welcome drinks before taking a seat in the tree-lined ceremony backdrop. The Birchwood string quartet serenaded guests with modern music on strings as we prepared to start the ceremony.
After Stephanie and Kevin were pronounced Mr. & Mrs, the guests were invited into the back yard where cocktail hour was held on the patio and around the pool. Lounge furniture provided conversation areas throughout the backyard. Eventually, when it was time to be seated guests found their seating assignment on the placecard board affixed to boxwood backdrops.
Despite being an outdoor wedding, the couple wanted the wedding to still feel formal and elegant. And as guests entered the tent the band welcomed guests while everyone found their way to their seats. The large tent was divided in half by a circular bar that separated the dining area from the dance area. The ceiling was filled with greenery and Sparkling chandeliers that set the romantic tone. A color palette of ivory, gold, and green worked well against the backdrop of the beautifully landscaped yard!!
The night continued with dinner, dancing and personalized late-night snacks that displayed the customized monogram that was featured throughout the wedding! Congrats to Mr. & Mrs. Murphy!!
