The sun is finally out in DC and I am FINALLY getting in the zone for wedding season (the cold didn’t exactly make me want to think about being outside in any sense). I had two awesome consultations this weekend with my first two May weekend brides and I am overflowing with timelines, layouts, and last minute confirmations before I head to Portland & Seattle next week. In the spirit of sunshine and love, I have a fun backyard wedding in Leesburg, Virginia to share today. Natascha & Scott got married in Natascha’s parents’ backyard in a laid-back, intimate ceremony and backyard reception. This backyard Virginia wedding had it all – handmade details, DIY projects, an intimate venue, and of course, a food truck! Thanks to VNess Photography for sharing this one!

The couple shared,

We wanted something fun, simple, and affordable – our 6 acres was the perfect outdoor venue. Our 2 children were in the wedding – other than that we kept in simple. No bridesmaids or groomsmen. Mostly all details were DIY – very laid-back in the fact we got married at home with our families.

  1. Where’s her dress from? I noticed you were talking in your complacency post about a lack of comments, so I figured I’d ask via comments, but one tweak I might suggest is that instead of listing just where the bride’s dress is from (that isn’t really helpful unless it’s about an experience with the vendor), list in lieu of/in addition at least the brand of dress.
