We’re not sure what we love most about Kathleen and Keith’s Ohio backyard wedding: the uninterrupted views, the bride’s decision to get dressed in a field, or that the couple’s dog was such an important part of their day! With their trusted pooch by their side, the Kathleen and Keith say, “I do,” in the bride’s family’s lush backyard and then partied the night away in a huge tent filled with white linens, potted plants, and a rose-adorned cake from & Eat It, Too bakery. For the bridal party bouquets and accent arrangements, Nikki’s Perfect Petals designed tied in the natural, earthy feel of the backyard space and included glamorous pops of red. The bride’s stunning Rita Vinieris gown also added to the glamorous vibe with ruffles for days — even after she cut it for the reception! From the father-daughter first look to the stormy couple portraits, this backyard wedding is one we won’t soon forget thanks to the photographic genius of Addison Jones Photography.

My most memorable part of the wedding day is cheesy and cliche, but it was walking down the aisle with my dad to my soon-to-be husband. It was a surreal moment and one that will be one of my favorites forever! Another one of my most memorable moments from the day was my first look with my dad. It was so special to get to have time alone with him before I walked down the aisle.
The wedding planning advice I would like to share is to just enjoy the process and remain true to who you are. Wedding planning was a lot of work and a lot of details to worry about, but after it was all said and done, I missed it. So, take it all in!
We gave little mason jars of pickles from Pickle Licious as a favor on our wedding day. Our dog’s name is Pickle and, on the jar of pickles, we made a little tag with Pickle’s picture on it saying, “Thank you for coming to my parent’s wedding.” They were a huge hit and very delicious!
