Backyard weddings can get a bad reputation. Kind of like that scene in Father of the Bride when Annie tells her father that she wants to have the wedding at home and he starts envisioning this cookout with checkered tablecloths on picnic tables with burgers and hotdogs. However, backyard weddings can really be a classy, beautiful and personal affair. This Foster Rhode Island wedding is no different. It was held at the groom’s family property where many of the bridal party had spent time growing up and forging friendships. Backyard weddings can really add a personal touch to a wedding that a lot of wedding venues don’t.

This wedding, in one word, was authentic. It was also colorful, fun, and unique. The wedding colors were literally rainbow. Rainbow sashes, bridesmaid dresses in every color, crazy colored shoes, a rainbow tutu! This wedding had it all. But more than anything, something that struck me was how authentic it was to the couple. I hadn’t met this couple previously as I was second shooting for the awesome Katie Lovaas, but it took about ten minutes with them to figure it out. This couple is laid back. I love a wedding that is low stress and just goes with the flow. It’s the best way to experience your day. Things will probably go off-plan, but there isn’t much you can do about it and it just makes the day more unique. The main thing that was evident on their wedding day was how much love there was. Not just between Kirk & Kendra (which there was PLENTY there) but between all the guests. These two dubbed their wedding the Very Special Wedding and I don’t think anything else could sum it up more perfectly.
Love all the color!
The signing of the ketubah.
LOVE that one of Kendra and her brother watching Kirk and his mom dance.
