This sweet, intimate backyard wedding comes to us from Kimberli Lowe Photography, based in Fort Worth, TX!

When I first met Rebecca she was so delighted with the prospect of moving her new family into their brand new home in the quiet little town of Grandbury.  To celebrate their blended family and new beginnings, Rebecca and Dustin were planning a  a gorgeous and intimate backyard wedding.

See more after the cut!

Rebecca jokingly said that they were having the wedding for the little girls who all wanted to be flower girls. Watching her and Dustin that night however, I’m not so convinced. Their love and devotion for each other was playfully shown throughout the evening in the gentle way they interacted with each other and their kiddos.

Blending soft romance with a nautical theme, the event was full of amazing DIY details. Hands down, my favorite item was string of 5 pink rosebud vases hanging on jute over the cake table. Embracing the current trend, Rebecca had chosen a Naked Cake for the main cake. Getting it’s own masculine table, Dustin’s groom cake was all about the local sports scene. Two cakes means two chances to do a playful cake smash with your new spouse.

Surrounding the backyard were fun details that added up to one beautiful event. Bundles of giant balloons ushered guests down the side of the house. Mason jars filled with florals decorated the aisles of the white wood chairs. The arch was created with a giant captain’s wheel, and photos of the new family playing and having fun together dotted the gardens. An open photo booth backdrop was set up with props, and an anchor was waiting to be signed rather than a guest book.

The kiddos had their own party favors waiting, with a row boat full of goodies making it’s way to a corner of the yard. Full of coloring books, glow necklaces and bubbles, even some of the adults found their way over to the small boat. Next to the boat, a corn hole game was set up for the big kid’s at heart.

While we captured their family photos and the groomsmen playfully photo bombed the girls photos, the guests enjoyed a tower of fresh fruit, cupcakes and a wine selection. After the wedding party was announced in, a seemingly endless buffet of local BBQ was offered to the guests. Rebecca and Dustin finished out the night with a romantic first dance under the stars and a sparkler sendoff.
