Steph & Viet: NH Backyard Wedding

Are you ready for the sweetest, most low-key, NH backyard wedding? Steph is the niece of my most excellent hairdresser Dori at Sapphire Salon.  When Steph & Viet announced their engagement, they were just going to do something small down in their hometown a few states away.  After the initial excitement of the news, the idea of a backyard family wedding in NH became a reality.

And a family wedding it was! The details that this crew pulled together were perfectly understated but fun – the exact vision that Steph had going into it!  Wildflowers from the property adorned the tables. Backyard Wedding Derry NH 00 A simple arbor at the base of some incredible trees in a little nook in the yard was the ideal spot for the ceremony – even the sun lined up with their plans!

I’m a fan of these cute signs – “Come as you are. Stay as long as you can. We’re all Family here, so no seating plan” NH Backyard Wedding One of the most important things to remember at your late summer wedding – bug spray! Backyard Wedding Derry NH 02Steph was pretty excited for her dress with the great leather top!
