Celebrating backyard weddings has been trending these past two years in Toronto, and I guess all over the world too. I love them because of its intimacy and how stress-free it is. Also, I’m surprised how creative some couples get.

Laura and Jeremy, after postponing their wedding twice, thought it was enough and decided to go for an intimate wedding at her mum’s house. To be honest, this backyard seems like a venue. It was so unique and extensive, it even had its own pond. They set up a detailed and beautiful table and hired a catering service for cocktail hour and dinner.

During the ceremony, Laura’s bother and brother in law took care of streeming the whole cemenony.

It was super intimate and special.

There is no right or bad decision for your wedding. Do it your own way. Here are a few pictures from their backyard wedding.

    Hello there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
