Abby + Keith’s Memorial Day weekend wedding kicked off summer in all the right ways. Their backyard ceremony and reception at Cog Hill Golf and Country Club were total blue skies ahead. Truly the most beautiful day and a perfectly intimate ceremony at Abby’s childhood home. (Which you know by now how much we love a backyard ceremony!)
Backyard Ceremony Ready
Abby got ready surrounded by all of the comforts of home. There were so many vignettes to photograph her in and plenty of friends (and animals!) around to give her a lot of love before her backyard ceremony and reception.
Down the Backyard Aisle
Then on to the backyard ceremony in Abby’s parents’ yard. We asked Abby’s mom if we could rent it out for other clients, it’s just that perfect. With a clear tent to let the sky though and a wooded path through the woods to get to the end of the aisle, it was truly one of the most picturesque settings we have seen in a while.
Party Time at Cog Hill
After the “I do’s” were done, we headed to Cog Hill for the party. The chandeliers and stately wood in this space are stunning in their own right. We especially loved the way Petal Play complimented the space with tons of greens and plenty of texture. The dance floor went well into the night and Alice snuck Abby + Keith out for some stunning photos at dusk. All in all, we’d just like to encourage more backyard ceremonies and please call us to plan them for you.
