With temperatures quickly dropping and fall calling our names, we love the idea of backyard weddings with bonfires, fuzzy blankets, and warm colors. Caitlin and Ryan’s cozy boho backyard wedding in Georgia was just that–and it’s giving us all the feels. With the help of expert planner Sweet Magnolia Weddings, the pair put together a laid-back day where they tied the knot in front of their closest friends and family.
The vintage rugs, neutral floral arrangements from The Funky Shack, and small teepees for the reception perfectly match the vibes of the surrounding forest. And Caitlin’s two-piece wedding dress from BHLDN and The Sentimentalist paired with the burgundy fur is the perfect mix of simple and elegant. We’re oh-so-glad that Junebug member Emily Battles Photography was there to capture the details of this intimate day and share it with us.
Caitlin and Ryan
The Boho Backyard Wedding Vibe
We knew we wanted a laid-back, cozy, and all-inclusive atmosphere. We wanted people to be comfortable and enjoy themselves–including us. So, we made the space feel warm, energetic, and romantic.
Including Friends and Family in the Ceremony
Our ceremony was very personal because we asked one of our best friends–Brandon–to marry us. His words were heartfelt and sincere, which is what we wanted–to be surrounded by love. Instead of having a bridal party, Ryan and I both had our brothers stand by our side. Again, we wanted to be surrounded by love from our closest family and friends.
A Diverse Wedding Menu
We had a giant charcuterie table open the entire night for guests to snack on. The main course was our favorite food, which is Indian from our favorite local Indian Restaurant. We wrapped the night up with Waffle House for guests to either eat while they were there or to take home with them.
