A Whimsical Backyard Wedding
They met in college and 17 years later, Erin and Andrew tied the knot in her parent’s backyard on a beautiful August afternoon. When your backyard is this gorgeous, there is not doubt that you would want to say your i do’s by the river and head into the woods for your whimsical backyard wedding reception.
We are so fortunate to have gotten to play for the weddings of both sisters, Erin and Briana, here. What a fun time celebrating with this family at their home in Bowdoinham. It was such a treat to meet the growing family five years later and play for their tiny dancers. Thanks for bringing the fire to the dance floor once again!
Bohemian Style – Woodsy Details
We loved the elegant yet rustic vibe. With Erin’s bohemian sense of style, no woodsy detail was missed. From the ceremony decor, flower girl crowns, and place settings to that sweet cake, this wedding was filled with the details. Using your own property means that you have a lot of work to do yourself. With the help of family, friends and their wedding team, Erin and Andrew arranged their wedding the way they wanted it. Mother Nature was the backdrop.
It’s all about the music.
Erin and Andrew took a unique approach to their special music requests and surprised guests with fire dancers in the woods! For their first dance, they asked us to cover Jackson Brown’s Somebody’s Baby and John Lennon’s Imagine for the combined parent dance. Paul French played acoustic guitar for the ceremony and Paul Dionne covered cocktail hour with keys.
Knowing that everything will fly by, Erin and Andrew were encouraged to take in slower moments together for sunset photos. Heading out to the apple tree and surrounding woods, these images perfectly fit the natural theme. Erin’s sister called her a beautiful woodland fairy and we see why. Just look at these beautiful photos from Cassandra Henri Photography.
It was a pleasure to work with such a creative wedding team.
