How to Make A Magical Backyard Wedding

Sometimes you’re handed a beautiful reminder of what love can do. This was it. Ivy + Trey’s magical backyard wedding was filled with every single good thing.

I stood on the patio at the end of the night – after the sparklers & confetti & the cake. After the coordinated bridal party dance. After the speeches & countless words of support and love. I just stood there, watching Ivy + Trey dance their hearts out, surrounded by their friends and family & endless love. Tears streamed down my face – like, we’re REALLY talking an embarrassing amount of tears – and I just laughed. What is this wild, crazy life?

This was the perfectly perfect day for literally a match-made-in-heaven pair.
The wind was as strong as the joy.
The location – Ivy’s parent’s backyard.
Her brother is his best friend.
Her sisters helped her plan.
All 9 of his siblings were there to celebrate & share in the happiness.
Her mom’s long time friend made the flowers.
There were twinkle lights + bubbly.
There was dancing – gosh, was there dancing!

It was all of that & a million things more. It was everything.

Creating a magical backyard wedding can be achieved in just 4 easy steps! Straight from Ivy + Trey’s incredible day, here ya go!

Twinkle lights!

I could stop here and it’d be magic enough. Sometimes twinkle lights are all it takes!

Cozy tables.

Beautiful farm tables placed in intimate rows to keep everyone close & cozy.

Gorgeous, lush florals.


All your favorite people.

These families grew up together. Did we mention her brother is his childhood best friend?

That’s it. That’s the list.

Here’s what Ivy + Trey had to say about their day!

Let me start out by saying, I was more picky about my photographer than I was about the ring, dress, flowers, (maybe even the man..KIDDING) and I have zero regrets and only positive words to say about our experience with Basecamp Visual. If you are looking for timeless photos that capture the movement, atmosphere and emotion of your love story then look no further, you’ve found the one!  We are absolutely BLOWN away with our pictures and experience with Shanna. The joy and laughter that she captured is breathtaking. So much thought and work goes into a short couple of hours celebrating; invest in people who care and capture the moment so it can be remembered for a lifetime. Do it. This is worth every single penny!!
