Backyard Wedding Goals
Jill + Antik
Top priority: Good food
What was your experience planning your wedding?
“Our original date was June 2020, but we had to postpone twice in order to ensure that my husband’s family could travel from overseas to attend. In some ways this added time was a blessing because I was able to hand-make more items that I never could have done in a few months. I was able to paint watercolor table signs and refurbish my great grandmother’s chest to use as decor. These personal touches made our day really special.”-Jill
What was your favorite part of the day?
“My husband wore his late father’s watch that hadn’t worked in many years, and while taking detail photos the second hand started ticking.”-Jill
Advice for other couples?
“A backyard wedding can be really amazing and special, but do the math and shop around for vendors to make sure it makes sense for you. It will likely take more work, time, or cost to create what you are envisioning than you may anticipate, so be willing to compromise on some aspects to make it work.”-Jill
