Backyard Wedding Wonderland

Brittany & Dustin's Wedding

The Vision

Bride's childhood backyard wedding dream, tent, elegant floral splendor, Adirondack touches, lanterns, abundant candlelight, farms, fields, and boathouse

The Flora and Fauna

Antique pink and white garden roses, wildflowers, lush green lawns, towering ancient white pines, leafy greens, pine cones, moss, birch, antlers, feathers, and evergreen branches


Brittany and Dustin were married in the bride's tiny family church located just a short distance from her home down the road.  Packed to the rafters with family and friends, the entire place radiated with love.

A family boathouse and nearby field served as backdrops for the formal photos.


Once the picture taking was done, the wedding party made its way to the reception tent situated in Brittany's parents' backyard.  This was the wedding venue that Brittany had dreamed of all of her life and her Dad had spent months grooming it to perfection.


Adorned with lush pink and white centerpieces, leafy bouquets, lanterns, antique brass candles and pink tulle runners, the tent was transformed into an elegant bridal wonderland.


As a nod to Brittany and Dustin's mutual love for all things Adirondack, the event was complemented with antlers, pinecones, birch bark, logs, moss, twigs, feathers, pack baskets and animal furs.  This added a rustic nature and helped to tell the story of this incredible couple.  

Right from the beginning, Dustin communicated his love of the Adirondack wilderness and all it has to offer.  He shared his love of hunting and expressed a real appreciation for the mallard duck's blue neck feathers.  This information was used to create his one-of-a-kind boutonniere complete with bullet shells and mallard feather accents. 


From the dessert table to the head table, personal touches were everywhere.  From the corner of the tent and its snowshoe vignette to the memorial table celebrating marriages and memories, the wedding of Brittany and Dustin was a celebration sure to be remembered and cherished forever.
