A Backyard Games Inspired Wedding by Jessica Fike Photography

By Keri

This backyard affair is personally a dream affair and a wedding I wish I was invited to! This crafty couple to DIY to an entirely new level by hand-wrapping individual books and creating corresponding bookmark escort cards. Seriously? Why didnā€™t I think of that! The couple also chose to keep their guests entertained with yard games such as bocce ball, hula hoops, and a handmade, personalized cornhole game. ThanksĀ Jessica Fike Photography, for this gorgeous and memorable feature!

Even though they spent most of their wedding planning days in Alabama over 800 miles from their venue, Meagan and Jim created a seemingly flawless event with superb and impressive details. From the unique collection of yard games to the individually wrapped (and meaningful) book favors, the details set the tone for their elegant yet relaxed wedding. The details were full of DIY-ness and Meagan was very proud of what they had put together to make their day unique. There was even some added flare with a pasta station at dinner and a 1929 Chevy classic getaway car. Two of my favorite parts of their wedding was the sunset ceremony beneath a HUGE tree at the farm and the opportunity to take pictures along the Chesapeake Bay.

Favors: Meagan collected used books that had significant meaning, many were she and Jimā€™s favorites. Each book had a handwritten note from the couple and all were wrapped in craft paper and tied with ribbon. Placecards: Meagan created book tags with vintage-designed paper Menu Display: Old window pane that Meagan found at a Habitat for Humanity store Outdoor Yard Games: Handmade corn hole boards with the coupleā€™s last name, hula hoops, bocce ball, paddle ball.
