Sometimes “love” is all you can say. And we love everything about this wedding: the adorable bride & groom, the vintage DIY details, the energy of the dance floor, and so much more. Leanna and Kenny had a backyard wedding in South Carolina with details that had personal meaning to them. Here is a blurb from Leanna:
“We used wedding photos of our family members throughout the décor to connect our wedding and marriage to the history and heritage of everyone that came before us. I chose to honor my mother, who died when I was a teenager, with a small display of her wedding portrait and some of her favorite books. Kenny and I were both English majors and lovers of literature so we used books in all of our décor, including the boutonnieres and garlands made from book pages. The books in our centerpieces were collected by my mother or passed down from other relatives. All of the glass bottles and other antiques were also gathered from family members.”
Family was a huge aspect of this wedding. The ceremony was in the backyard of her parents’ home where both Leanna’s father and his brothers had their weddings. It was conducted entirely by family members as well, from the officiants to the music. And how about that amazing, rustic doorway to the ceremony site?! That was built by her uncles.
The reception was non-stop dancing craziness. Everyone danced the night away in a campground pavilion that was originally built by Leanna’s grandfather and later restored by her father. They ended the night with a contra dance and Leanna said “Dancing while surrounded by all of the people we love was such a special way to start our marriage.”
