Real Wedding Wednesday ~ FABULOUS Backyard Wedding

I'm pretty sure I have a girl crush on Holly. No, I really do. Yeah, Holly's the stunningly fabulous, effortlessly cool bride in these photographs. Her mom created the cool ass birdcage veil, and her wedding dress is from BHLDN. Emily, the photographer said that:

"Holly and Shane met 12 years ago when they were both traveling through Europe. As life would have it, though, they were not yet ready to settle down (what 16 year old really is, after all?). Fast forward a decade, add some higher education, a couple trips around the world and some major growing up, and you’ll find yourself at August 18, 2012, where this seemingly destined couple said their vows to one another in the backyard of Holly’s father in East Grand Rapids, Michigan."

So brideys, please enjoy this amazing eye candy, and you know what? Learn a little bit too... Because this wedding? Well, it's the kind of wedding you want to make your own.

One of the coolest parts of a backyard wedding? Getting ready at home where everybody is comfortable and happy. 

Seriously? How cute is Holly? I mean...

I love the red shoes! I love that they are all different to go with all of the different shades of turquoise bridesmaids dresses!

Hell yeah! Lift 'em up! Oh, and what's YOUR something blue?

That face! Holly is just lovely! Isn't she?

Amazing flowers, and amazing photograph.

Beautifully colorful! I love how Emily was able to capture such a great moment!

Bring it! Is that a banjo?

Yup! This is the backyard!

I am dying over this! Love it! Love it! Love it!
