A Backyard Wedding in Black and White

September 29 , 2015 by: Hong Weddings

I am so excited to share with you all some more photos of our intimate backyard wedding. It was such a perfect day and our unofficial photographer, our friend K.D. captured some beautiful images…

My dad and I.

My husband reading his vows to me.

A toast from my older brother.

Here we are after the ceremony. Of course I have a tendency to over exaggerate when I’m a little nervous.

Before the ceremony. My prayers were answered when it stopped raining about 10 minutes after the scheduled start of our ceremony.

My dearest sister and I.

The handsome men in my life.


More BFF’s who all flew in from out of town. Not shown are their dear wee ones who brought so much joy to the event.

My handsome husband who has no idea what he’s gotten himself into.

The venue, our backyard. After the ceremony we moved the tables in towards the middle of the yard. We had 60 guests, the perfect amount in my eyes.

My husbands toast. I may have had something in my eye.

Our best boys.

More beautiful guests with the most perfect little girl.

A party always has to include cake. This was a white chocolate mousse cake.

  • Love these pics! After all this time, I imagine your freshly minted hubby knows exactly what he’s gotten himself into! <3 Congrats again!

  • Lovely dress (the pleats!), setting and occasion. The photographs capture the mellowness and importance of the event as well as the good feeling it obviously inspired. Love the picture of you and the boys. They look so Bob Dylan, only better 🙂

    Congratulations to you and the handsome groom!

    • Thank you Victoria for such kind words. Hope you are well and thinking of you often. 🙂

  • Baked macaroni and cheese is a classic and it's even better with that crispy cheese crust right from the oven. #bakedmacaroniandcheese #macaroniandcheesebaked #macandcheese #bakedmacandcheese
