Jenni and Alex wanted a backyard wedding at Alex’ family home in Alexandria, Va. and their wedding day encapsulated exactly what a backyard wedding should be. From their vows complete with Star Wars references (from both Jenni and Alex) said with giggles and tenderness under the “hitchin’ tree,” to tree favors for their guests and white lanterns lighting up the leafy canopy overhead, the day had that perfect intimate quality. There were also a few surprises, like personalized flasks for the bridal party, the “Alex faces” that the groomsmen surprised Alex with and most definitely their mouth to mouth delivery mode for the rings (definitely a first). Finally, this beautiful couple had won me over long before, but I’ll admit that when I saw their moves on the dance floor, I was officially theirs. Following are my favorites from the day: enjoy!
