Creative Backyard Wedding {Katherine + Douglas}24.11.2011

Raise your hands if you love unique whimsical backyard weddings!

That’s definitely the vibe we’re feeling from Katherine and Douglas’s Fort Worth, Texas wedding, which was photographed by Dorothy Gautreaux Photography. Dorothy had this to say…

“The Bride was on a low budget and used her creativity, vintage taste and DIY details to stay within $10K. She married on her aunt’s beautifully landscaped property aiming for a whimsical backyard wedding vibe.”

What made your wedding unique? “My wedding was in a backyard so that was a very unique factor. Our ceremony music was also unique – my bridesmaids and I walked down the aisle to Priscilla ahn’s ‘dream’.”

What was your biggest challenge? “Picking out a bridesmaid dress for my girls was a challenge. It was so hard to find a dress that fit my theme, style, personality and budget!”

Did you DIY and details? “My Dad cut a log for me to make the stumps for my centerpieces. I also went to an antique store to buy my vintage bottles for my centerpieces.”

What’s your advice? “Try not to get too overwhelmed by DIY details. [Also] love your photographer and their style – I wanted my photos to be vintage inspired to reflect the theme of our wedding.”
